After dabbling in yoga here and there since high school, Brittany truly began her yoga journey back in 2011 when she lived in NYC. It wasn't until she moved to the Bay Area that yoga became a spiritual practice that completely changed her life.
Since then, she's been hooked and what started as a slow progression has turned into a morning ritual. She received her 200 hr. teaching certification from Diana Oppenheim of Yoga Tree SF and Amber Cook in 2016 and is now undergoing her 500-hr teacher training program with Nubia Teixeira.
Also a healer, writer and singer, Brittany believes moving the body and breathing is crucial to heal, to feel and to release. As spiritual teacher Matt Kahn said, 'We're not on the journeys, our bodies are." The closer we can make our bodies comfortable for our journeys here on earth, the better we'll feel, and the more good we can do in this world.
Expect classes to be led with chanting and a soulful playlist.

Renee delivers a practice which encompasses a balanced approach of lightness + depth and alignment + intuition. With the compliment of choreographed sound and gentle moments of silence, her classes allow for deep connection.

She believes in slowing down to connect with the subtleties in the body while fine tuning alignment and breath.

Today, she continues to practice this discipline with a deep focus in therapeutics. She is honored to play a part in sharing the timeless gift of yoga.
