Brooks Rainey Pearson
Brooks has been practicing yoga since 1995 and teaching since 1998. In June of 2001 she moved to the Outer Banks from Chapel Hill in order to open Outer Banks Yoga and Pilates. The Outer Banks was hungry for a yoga studio, and one studio quickly grew into three, with a staff of 16, a retail store, and over 50 classes each week. In May of 2006 Brooks sold Outer Banks Yoga in order to return to Chapel Hill to pursue her second passion, environmental law. After devoting her first semester of law school to studying, she is thrilled to be back teaching yoga. Brooks is certified in Integral Yoga through the Satchidananda Ashram and has trained in Ashtanga with David Swenson. She is certified in Pilates through the Physical Mind Institute, formerly the Pilates Institute.
