Scotland born and raised, and Oxford educated with a graduate degree, MPhil in Development Studies, Bex Tyrer has been Asia-based for the past thirteen years, where she has lived her passion for Yoga and yoga activism. Bex has been a full time yoga teacher at the Yoga Barn since 2009.
The most influential factor to shaping her teachings being the intensive exposure to thousands of different practitioners and shared perspectives of yoga. Her commitment to sharing Yoga touching beginners to advanced yoga teacher trainee students from all over the world.
Yoga’s adaptability and diversity has led Bex to dive deeper into a more academic orientated study of both the history and philosophy of yoga. Her study of women in yoga’s history, as well as her years of observations in the studio has also led her to raise important questions as to the ability of contemporary yoga to support women’s health and self-esteem. Bex uses her platform to explore some of the critical issues of contemporary yoga (including issues of inclusivity, trauma informed and the dangers of commodification) whilst working to ensure that postural yoga is supportive of women’s health as well as social and environmental justice.
Bex has had the privilege of being guided by some great teachers including Angela Farmer, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Denise Payne.
