Hi, I’m Jade!
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. "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."
Jackie Kinney: Instructor
Jackie provides a safe and welcoming space where students can explore and develop their very own personal yoga journey and self transformation. A typical class consists of moving through our breathe to build a greater postural body awareness with a focus on hip strength, flexibility, spinal alignment, core engagement and chest opening. Jackie has been teaching yoga to children and adults for 7 years after completing her hatha and vinyasa certification in Rishikesh, India. Her style is strong, playful and fun! All of the proceeds from Jackie’s classes go directly to the High Atlas Foundation and Education for All.
