It is her goal to practice and teach yoga as she lives her life, mindfully and free of judgement and expectation. As a teacher, she hopes to guide students to whatever they need from their practice, as yoga is whatever you want it to be. In her class she likes to remind the students that they are truly their own teacher and she is simply the guide. She always strives to inspire students to cultivate their own power through their breath and to never give up on yourself or the Self.
She started practicing 4-5 times a week and has been amazed by the transformative effects of yoga- better health, more calm, less anxiety, more compassion for herself and others, and better equipped to respond, rather than react, to life’s challenges. Bria believes that the benefits of yoga and mindfulness are life-changing. And they are universal when we listen to our bodies.
This is why she is honored to teach! She completed her teacher training with the fabulous Sara Doyle, owner of Blue Point Yoga and Duke Anatomy faculty teacher, to gain a deep understanding of body alignment.
As a mother of three, a former therapist, a current life-design coach, and an avid reader of health, Buddhism, and mindfulness books, she has always been passionate about helping people live their healthiest, happiest, most authentic lives. She believes yoga is an integral part of that vision. As part of the class experience, Bria strives to infuse meaningful lessons derived from the ancient wisdoms of yoga philosophy, Buddhism and mindfulness.
