Jada Fire, Yogini, Spirit Guide and Artist, is fully devoted to raising the peaceful community vibration! She is also a divinely conscious mother and creative spirit entrepreneur. Jada, and her husband Alvin Tam, created Barefoot Sanctuary together and lovingly opened doors for communal flow in 2008.
Jada was originally born in New York and settled in the Las Vegas Valley in 2001 after travelling the globe exploring indigenous culture and native arts. Jada’s background with body knowledge is a rich blend of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Ethnic – Exotic Dance, Gymnastics, Trapeze and Polynesian Fire Spinning. In 2001, she developed the fluid and sensual yoga practice she calls Expressive Yoga and Expressive Yoga Dance. The practice in full offers deep grounding, energetic healing, and inspiration derived from the sacred flame within. Her style of yoga offers an organic expression of restorative, hatha flow while incorporating both Reiki and Theta healing modalities in guided meditations.
Jada is the author of Relinquish the Armor, the autobiography of a Fire Goddess who shares wisdom in manifestations and how yoga has transformed her life.
Jada is dedicated to evoking creativity and peace through her work. She offers an annual teacher training in Expressive Yoga Dance and hosts yoga retreats to the Motherland of Africa. Jada’s teachings are rooted in primordial movement and engaging breath work. She touches deeply on the essence of divine feminine and masculine energies that we all embody.
Jada often performs Sacred Dance Fusion showcases combining African, Middle Eastern and Serpentine Yoga Dance. Her performances are sacred in that they exhibit tales of love and emotive release, catharsis and indigenous exploration. Jada loves practicing with new yogis and experienced athletes alike. Barefoot Sanctuary is her humble home and she is passionate about sharing the temple with you!

Alvin Tam was born in Edmonton, Canada, where he became seduced by a dream at the age of 18 to travel the world, learn languages, and meet new cultures. Captivated by this vision, he discovered the National Circus School in Montreal and began training intensively for four years and eventually ended up crossing the globe several times as an acrobatic performer and coach. Alvin has performed in Japan, Brazil, France, England, Canada, United States, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Lebanon.
In 2002 Alvin received a call from the Cirque du Soleil to join the creation and performance of the $200 million Las Vegas show, KA. He spent five years working with the company, and in the meantime began his next dream, starting a business and opened Barefoot Sanctuary with Jada. Alvin has a deep passion for helping people transforming their fears while doing what they love.
He now speaks four languages and has traveled to over nine countries and 200 cities and currently lives in Las Vegas. Alvin’s next dreams are to build and fly an Iron Man suit, live to be 300 years old, and create a beautiful, loving family with his wife Jada.
