About the Founder

It took a stint at a corporate global PR agency for Gabrielle Hales to realise that no, office life was not for her. One ticket to India later, she found herself teaching yoga and eager to share all the amazing things she’d learnt upon her return.

Beginning with classes in her own living room, the word spread and these events became so popular that she sought out ever-more exciting venues to host events in, bringing an extra element by working with up-and-coming chefs to expand them into yoga supper clubs.

Elements of immersive sound therapy and live music soon followed as part of Gabrielle’s mission to introduce a new sense of warmth and generosity to the yoga community – creating a new setting for yoga practice that was more sociable and less solitary, while breaking the assumption that a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy nourishing food.

Now? Gabrielle’s pushing SYC to the next level, aiming to inspire people to experience practices that improve happiness and well-being. Oh, and with plenty of fun, too.
