Bibi defies the mold. The Portland, Oregon-based musical director of Suga Mama (Beyoncé’s ten-piece, all-female band) is not your typical rockstar guitarist. She’s also an internationally acclaimed yoga teacher.
Raised in Denver, Colorado, Bibi McGill discovered yoga in 1998 and has since traveled the world studying classical eight-limbed yoga systems. As she advocates making yoga available to everyone, her down-to-earth, authentic nature inspires individuals to realize the potential for embracing their true selves. Bibi leads classes and workshops at studios and festivals around the globe and in her Portland hometown. Through her involvement with the non-profit organization Street Yoga, Bibi also spreads the message of healing and wellness to youth, drawing on her own experience finding courage through yoga, and employing adept sensitivity to support populations who have undergone trauma.
Expect to start seeing a lot more of Bibi. This rocker is on a mission to share self-care and has already graced the covers of Yoga Journal, About Face, Edge Magazine, and Om Times. When she’s not on the mat or stage, find Bibi traveling with her 11 lb. chiweenie dog Rock-it!, connecting with nature on a kayak or in a garden, or enjoying the quiet life with kale chips and a cup of tea.
