Jayna Staykov

Jayna Staykov

Pacific Place, Admiralty, Hong Kong


Originally from Australia, Jayna walked into her first yoga class with a desire to touch her toes and what she discovered was a connection to her body that she had never felt before. This inspired Jayna to dive deeper into the world of yoga and the magic of yoga practice completely transformed Jayna’s life, from her way of thinking to her way of being. She fell in love with the healing qualities of yoga and the beautiful connection between mind, body and breath. Jayna felt compelled to shift from an eight-year marketing career to teaching yoga so that she could be of service to others and share the gift and teaching of the yoga practice that she received. Jayna is highly interested in exploring and experiencing the mysteries of life, which moves her to be a lifelong learner and student of yoga. She has experienced the teaching and wisdom of many amazing teachers and is deeply grateful to all the teachers who she’s crossed paths with. Their teachings have deeply impacted her understanding of the body and spirit and have guided her to teach from a place of authenticity, compassion and respect. Jayna believes that yoga is for everyone and creates classes that are inclusive, where the focus is on one’s own body and yoga practice. She teaches with intentional slowness to bring awareness and connection to the body and breath to feel every sensation. Jayna loves to explore creative, fun and challenging sequences as well as practices that encourage stillness, rest and slowing down. Jayna invites her students to connect with their own intuition and inner wisdom, so they leave the class feeling strong and with a sense of well-being and calm.
