Everett Newell

Founder - Master Trainer
ERYT500 / YACEP

"If we haven't the strength to impose our own terms upon life, then we must accept what it offers us." − T.S. Elliot
A life-long fascination with the attitudes and factors that promote success has led Everett through an intensive study in a variety of modalities, including martial arts, yoga, meditation and business training. He has been involved in the energetic arts since 1978, beginning with Hapkido, a Korean martial art. This led him to one of his most revered teachers, Grand Master Bong Soo Han at the International Hapkido Federation® Headquarters in Santa Monica, CA where he studied and taught for over 20 years. His exploration of Yoga began in 1992 and has been a journey through many traditions such as Tantra, Hatha, Kundalini, Vinyasa, Taoism and more.

Everett was cofounder of Divine Motion Yoga® (2001 − 2009) which was voted the “Best Los Angeles Yoga Studio” three times. He founded Zuna Yoga® in 2009 and in 2010 moved to New York City’s Upper West Side, where he taught at two of NYC’s premiere yoga studios, PureYoga® and NYLovesYoga. It was there that he met his partner Katherine, who contributed greatly to modernizing the Zuna Yoga® brand and providing scientific and pedagogic structure to the traditional methods. Together they moved to Bali in 2013, and have since successfully led thousands of inspired students through yoga teacher training.

Angelina Stolz

Lead Trainer

ERYT200® / RYT500

“ I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion, and where it isn’t, that’s where my work lies.” - Ram Dass

Angelina was born and raised in a small town in the countryside of Austria. At age of 22 she moved to Vienna to study Nutritional Sciences and work as a model, which marked the beginning of a period of enormous change, growth and new possibilities. Shortly after arriving in the city, she attended her first yoga class and instantly fell in love with the practice.

It didn’t take long for her to realize she wanted to dive much deeper into the world of yoga and to share her love for it with others.

Within a year, she completed her first 200YTT and immediately began teaching at several studios in Vienna. Pursuing her passion in a dedicated manner, she also traveled around the world, teaching at hotels and festivals in Europe and the South Pacific.

Having learned of Zuna Yoga and their Meditation Teacher Training, Angelina had always dreamed about flying to Bali for this program, and a few years later she made it a reality. 

Angelina was fascinated by the teachings and methods of Zuna Yoga. The lectures go far beyond teaching Yoga and its philosophy – from ancient tradition to modern science, connecting and combining it all with direct experience, giving a clear understanding of what Yoga is about and how to embody and live it in the modern world.

Angelina later joined the Zuna Yoga team to enjoy the fulfillment and privilege of sharing this knowledge, helping and supporting students on their way closer to themselves.

Yoga is pure magic for me. My life has completely changed ever since Yoga found its way into my life a couple years ago. I was in a very difficult time when I attended my first class ever, and it has become my safe space. My Yoga practice saved me, it opened up the world to me and made me feel and realize that I have a home within myself for the first time in my life. Being part of the Zuna Yoga team and supporting so many beautiful souls on their way is just amazing.” – Angelina

Sujay Reddy

TRAINER - RYT500

“It is better to live your destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection” – Bhagavad Gita

Sujay Reddy is a multi-faceted individual born in Bangalore, India in 1985. Previously a successful pro tennis player, he won several championships before a wrist injury at the age of 20 brought his career to a halt. This led to a period of searching for his purpose and place in life.

His work as an interior designer and land developer was recognized and published in prestigious magazines such as Vogue and Architectural Digest.

Owing to the fact that he was introduced to meditation at a very young age, Sujay eventually found his calling in the fields of health, wellness, and yoga.

Over the years he has spent time in ashrams in South India to study Kriya Yoga and other meditation techniques. He also completed his 500 hour yoga teacher training with Zuna Yoga.

He is a Hatha yoga teacher, personal trainer, nutritionist, and breath coach. Sujay realized that his true purpose in life is to teach movement, stillness, meditation, and breath through yoga.

He joined Zuna Yoga with the intention of sharing his knowledge and helping aspiring students discover their true selves and find deeper meaning in their existence.

Sujay is a true embodiment of the power of yoga and its ability to transform lives, and he always sees himself as a student of yoga, continuously seeking to learn more in this field.

To practice, study and share knowledge that will help humans come into alignment with their natural selves, become more compassionate, inclusive, and loving, so that we leave this planet in slightly better shape than we were lucky enough to enter it. To achieve this through conscious movement, stillness and breath is journey of a lifetime, it is the journey of my lifetime” – Sujay
