The Seavibes brand is centered around a young and well-known Yogi, Jaysea DeVoe. At the age of 12, she completed her yoga teacher training course and became the youngest certified yoga instructor in the United States. Not stopping there, she went on to get her certification as a Stand Up Paddle board Yoga instructor which made her the youngest in the world! Jaysea, now age 15, teaches weekly in her home town of Encinitas, California. She is inspired by the Sea and themes her classes around it. Jaysea has taught Yoga classes as far away as Toronto, Canada and Hawaii. Now, she is an entrepreneur starting her own youthful women’s Yoga/Surf brand called Seavibes and hand-makes beautiful jewelry all inspired by the Sea. Check out the whole line of Ocean inspired yoga wear.
