Brittany was introduced to yoga as a competitive and wild teen in 1999. The choice buy a one way ticket to India and take a 200 hour teacher training altered her entire life path.

Brittany loves the peace yoga brings to her head and heart! The poses bring strength and intelligence to her body; the breath brings clarity and freedom to her mind.

Brittany is forever a student as yoga continually supports me in finding equanimity and an elevated perspective in all life experiences. As a mama of two little girls, she feels endlessly blessed to experience motherhood grounded and grateful in every moment.
