Bridget Schaeffers

Bridget first discovered yoga in 2013 when her inner guide led her on a solo adventure to India. She attended her first yoga class in the spiritual town of Dharamshala, home to the Dalai Lama, an auspicious beginning, for certain.
Since then, under the guidance of skillful teachers and the lens of her own devoted curiosity, Bridget’s practice has deepened and evolved. She has studied in both India and New Zealand and is currently completing her advanced 300hr teacher training. Bridget’s teaching draws on various styles of yoga and the wisdom gained from over a decade of experience in her field.

Bridget founded The Yoga Travel Co. in 2018 with a vision to share the healing power of yoga with the world. Since then, she has hosted a number of yoga and wellness retreats both in New Zealand and abroad. Her deepest joy is connecting with like-hearted people on their journeys of self-discovery

Bridget believes that we are all connected through the universal power of love and can experience divine moments of truth, healing, and transformation through these ancient practices. Known for her accessibility, humour, and ability to empower students, Bridget teaches and lives from the heart. Her messages are ones of love, light, kindness, and compassion.
