Brandi has a passion for life that is infectious! Her love for Yoga has grown over the past 15 years and she is excited to share her passion and enthusiasm for the practice with you. Her philosophy is always building a strong foundation. " I teach from the ground up, helping students understand proper alignment is so important in everything we do."I love teaching the Meditation class because I feel it adds a missing piece in today's practices.

Namaste! I have been practicing yoga for over five years. I began my yoga practice because I was curious of what all of the 'hype' around yoga was...after my first class it was love at first try!
Yoga has shifted my entire mindset. With yoga in my life, I am more accepting, open to trying new challenges, and most of all, grateful. The challenging practice on the mat requires one to believe in "mind over matter," and this discovery extends to life beyond the yoga mat. I LOVE to conquer my mind in a difficult pose and I LOVE to support my students and watch them conquer as well. It is truly magical and it is what inspired me to become a yoga teacher.
My favorite yoga poses are balancing half moon and crow pose. Both poses allow me to tap into strength and balance I didn't even believe to have. It shows what mind of matter and persistence can truly lead to and keeps me feeling playful and strong in my practice.
In my free time I enjoy developing my own yoga practice, reading books, DIY projects, cooking/baking, spending time with family and friends, and volunteering. I am an animal rights activist and have wonderful vegan recipes that I am always willing to share!

I came to practice Yoga like so many before me to find relief from the discomfort of illness and to quiet the general day to day noise within and without us that we all deal with as a part of modern life.
Yoga means union. The resolution of the seemingly opposing contradictions in our minds by stilling the body through poses and the regulation of our breath.
