YOGA INSTRUCTOR LIST
Alexzandra is a spiritual leader, Reiki & Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner and a 200hr certified Yoga instructor who dives into the depths of self-freedom and soul awaking through her teachings. Her home base is in Maine, but you can find her and her teaching all around the world.
Filled with anxiety, depression, Alexzandra found Yoga at a perfect time in her life 9 years ago. Through her practice she found her way back to herself and picked up the broken pieces. Immediately she knew that she wanted to help guide others home to themselves and help create a space for her students to honor who they are.
Alexzandras teachings are emotional with emphasis of bringing your sh!t to the mat and working through it in your body and breath, rather than leaving it all at the door. Her style is unique, fun, and challenging. In her classes, expect to work, sweat, play, laugh and grow -- and to leave with a deeper understanding, connection and love for your Self.
Rachel Wainwright whole-heartedly believes in the transformative power of yoga. Yoga has given her the tools to meet the inevitable difficulties of life with a measure of acceptance, openness, trust and love. Rachel believes mindful movement to motivational music can help shift your perspective to a more positive one and raise your vibration to a higher frequency.
Through yoga practice you will attract a healthier, happier, more fulfilling life. Rachel guides you to move from the inside out, allowing you listen to your sensations and hear your inner intelligence.
Rachel is the founder of Exhale Yoga Retreats.
Expect her classes to be adventurous and have an intimate experience connecting to your true natural authentic self.

Mary Bruce is an internationally beloved yoga teacher and educator who creates sacred space and presence for her students
Her wish for each student is that they practice expressing who they truly are. To radically embody that truth. And that their truth bring greater peace, to themselves, to this world. A yoga teacher since 1997, Mary considers herself a forever student and began her journey in 1994 with Julie Crutchfield.
Mary Bruce is now a senior student of Rod Stryker’s and is Level III ParaYoga® Certified, a Certified Four Desires Trainer and a member of the Para Yoga certification board. She is also a 500 hour E-RYT Yoga Alliance teacher, a Relax and Renew trainer under the mentorship of Judith Lasiter, a certified Yoga Nidra Facilitator and a Reike Master. Mary directed the Yoga Teacher Training program at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Arizona from 2004-2008. She also co-directed the Yoga Teacher Training program at Practice Yoga in New York City in 2009 and co-directed the Yoga For Life 300 Hr. Master Immersion into The Yoga Tradition Program from 2011-2014. She currently trains teachers in Arizona, California and Switzerland. Mary has written for internationally known magazines such as Yoga International, Origin and Mantra Magazine, and is featured on Gather Yoga. Mary occasionally travels with musicians such as Jennifer Nettles and the band Sugarland to bring yoga and wellness on tour.
“… you’ll feel her before you see her” is one way of describing an encounter with Chocolako. She’s vibrant, colorful and fun, with a notable infectious smile that calls forth her ancestors from the inlands of Benue State, Nigeria. Her soul stirring reminders woven effortlessly during yoga classes leave an indelible imprint that we are excited to experience at the Mallorca BJ and Yoga Festival October 2019.
In 2003 the sudden death of her best friend’s mother compelled Choc to seek a deeper meaning to life. She discovered yoga, and dedicated herself to the study of energy, mindful movement, breath awareness and traditional Eastern and African philosophies. In 2010, she completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training, and subsequently graduated from two 300-hour trainings, and several additional trainings spanning almost 15years.
In addition to teaching what she loves, Choc holds an MBA from Cass Business School in London, an MPH from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Human & Organizational Development from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She is registered with the Yoga Alliance with E-RYT200, RYT 500 and YACEP designations.
We are excited for Chocolako to bring her unique gifts to our festival in Mallorca this Fall.

Tim`s biggest fascination of the human body is the power of the breath and mind.
He is a biodynamic breathwork & trauma release coach and a big fan of the Wim Hof Method where he combines cold exposure, breathwork & mind control.
With the age of 19 he randomly picked up a hitchhiker in Australia and dropped him of in a Vipassana meditation center which has lead him on a spiritual journey.
Sitting still and trying to find peace is not always easy thus Tim is happy to share active meditations, pranayamas and different breathing & cold exposure sessions with us to come back to our inner peace & true essence.
Tim is also a Shivananda (400h) and Kundalini (200h) yoga teacher and loves to share his knowledge as a NLP master and trauma release coach to help you find your balance.
Aluna Ritual Music is the name of the co-creation project between Steffen Kirchhoff and Maywa. They met at a music festival in the jungle of colombia in 2016. The word "Aluna" stems from the indiginous language of the kogi tribe from colombia and can be translated into "source of all that is, was and ever will be" or "conciousness".
Togehter they produce music, guided meditations and sound-healing journeys and facilitate cacao ceremonies and concious dance events with the intention to re-connect people with nature and their inner guidance and wisdom.

Aluna Ritual Music
ALUNA depicts the joined talents and complementary creations of Maywa and Steffen Kirchhoff, world travellers and soul explorers. Their music project aspires to the creation and spreading of ritualistic music, leading the listeners to reconnect with the Earth, to harmonize with Nature, and with its endless wonders. It’s healing music, it’s music to dance, it’s music to love.
Their vision is embodied by their selection of sounds, idyllic melodies, and fascinating vocals, all permeated of Latin American flavours. In fact, their music project finds its origin in the Columbian forests where these beautiful souls first met, as soloist artists. The word ALUNA also descends from the natives of that land. Among the Kogi people, it stands for the “invisible spirit realm”, the source and intelligence of life.
Mallorca BJJ & Yoga FestiVAL ORGANISERS
Joe Notebaert- Event Manager/Bookings/ BJJ INSTRUCTOR
Originally from Phoenix Arizona, I now live in Mallorca following a 10 year stint in London England. In London I trained at Roger Gracie Academy and shortly after winning my 2nd IBJJF World Championship at Brown belt Masters I received my black belt from Cesar Lima under the approval of Roger Gracie.
I am also a director of a travel agency and I decided to combine my love of travel and my travel planning experience with my love for BJJ by launching the Mallorca BJJ & Yoga Festival

Jack Clover - Event Manager/ orginiser/ YOGA INSTRUCTOR
To me, yoga is a source of peace, grounding and inspiration every day.It forms a repair station for the body and mind, using ancient tools that can be applied to modern living.
I began training BJJ in 2008 along with Muay Thai, Traditional boxing and Judo. After dipping my toes into MMA, I realised I sought a different path in my practice and came across Yoga in 2012. I soon realised Yoga would challenge me and enrich my life in as many ways Jiujitsu had, and from that point there was no turning back!
I left London to qualify as a Yoga teacher in 2016. Since then I have spent 2 years travelling, teaching and practising Yoga and BJJ in many countries around the world, I now reside in Berlin. These two forms work together so well on many levels and I would love others to experience this combination at Mallorca BJJ and Yoga Festival.
