Hi! My name is Brenda
For me, yoga has been a process of self-discovery.
Chipping away at the mind clutter.
Peeling away years of emotional pain that I had no idea was even there.
Revealing a deeper understanding of who I am.
Somehow these physical poses have led me to that. Strange… I know.
So that’s my mission. My mission is to teach what I learn and share that process. For those that are curious about the process of mindfulness, self-awareness, and self-love. Because where else are we learning that?
EQUANIMITY + MENTAL CLARITY
I was drawn to the physical practice of yoga at first. The sweat. The strength. This then led me on a journey of self-discovery and self-awareness.
I stumbled upon yoga in a corporate wellness class. I was working as an accountant in San Francisco, CA at the time.
I was blind to the amount of emotional distress I carried with me.
Something about the yoga practice made me realize that I didn’t need to constantly feel anxious, stressed, depressed, and disempowered. I began feeling empowered, confident and content with my life and myself.
This continues to be my struggle in finding a stable mind. But now I have this little secret called yoga and meditation.
I am delighted to bring more awareness to peoples lives – whether that’s physical, emotional, soulful or philosophical.
I am continually learning and broadening my perspective both in the yoga world and outside of yoga. I hold a Masters of Public Health from Columbia University. I aspire to make yoga & wellness accessible to everyone.
