The Yalah yoga Team


Jade Whitham: founder & instructor

Originally from Austin, Texas - I moved to Morocco in 2014 and I’ve been discovering the country and its amazing culture ever since. A lover of travel, food and yoga - in no particular order - I spend my time making friends all over the world, planning my next travels and expanding my yoga practice. I’ve attended trainings in Morocco and India, which has helped me develop a unique teaching style with emphasis on fun, self-love, body positivity, and curiosity.

I’m an entrepreneur at heart, and have also co-founded a travel company that curates amazing trips and retreats to the Sahara desert and other parts of Morocco, as well as a yoga retreat club for other intrepid souls that love seeking new destinations and exploring not only outside but also within.

Aside from teaching public studio classes here in Marrakech, I host an average of 4 retreats per year, as well as workshops and 200 hour yoga teacher trainings. I’m an E-RYT 200 instructor registered by the Yoga Alliance International.

Geo Carreno: Instructor

Andres Giovanni Carreno better known as Geo is a traveling yoga instructor who started his mission in Hawaii. A true citizen of the world, Geo lives between Hawaii, his spirit home; Chicago, his family home; and Morocco, his home away from home. Geo completed the Core Power Yoga 200 Hour teacher training and can seriously light your fire in his power vinyasa class. Additionally, he’s a reiki practitioner and has combined his love of power yoga with energy movement to create ReiYoga - his own unique style of teaching.

"My vision is to help you on your own personal journey as you renew your mind,body, and soul; transcending into the life you were created to live. My wish is that your vibration will help you evolve into your higher self; your true essence. That you may find peace in your everyday; smiling at each moment that bring you closer to your purpose. It is easy to stay in one place; never venturing out of your own back yard. But I know, if given the chance, the Universe will raise you up to heights you never knew existed."
