I began my yoga journey in college, which offered "Kenyon Fit" vinyasa classes. After a few weeks I started to notice myself changing. My concentration increased, as did my ability to deal with stress, and, of course, my fitness level improved. One of my peers during teacher training put it best when he said, "I started for vanity, I stay for sanity."
When I graduated from college I knew I wanted to keep yoga in my life. I learned about the Yoga to the People teacher training in Berkeley (where I was living), said "yes, please," and never looked back. I generally like teaching mixed level vinyasa classes that anyone can enjoy. One of my favorite teachers during training, Sam Chase, used to say that people come to yoga for different reasons. Some come for a deep spiritual practice, and that's great. Some come so their butt will look better in those new jeans, and that's great too. This philosophy of "yoga is for everyone" resonates with me deeply and I try to shape my classes accordingly.
When not teaching you might find me reading, writing fantasy novels, oil painting, juggling, or walking on my hands because...why not?

Kundalini Yoga & meditation has helped me connect with my Infinite Self and find greater peace, balance, and joy. I believe it empowers individuals on a deep soul level. I received my certification in Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, through KRI. I’ve enjoyed practicing various forms of yoga for 22 years. Eleven years of experience in massage therapy, has given me a deep understanding of the body and healing. My massage focus includes myofascial work, Thai Massage, and energy healing.
Another passion of mine is the sacred feminine art of belly dance. I have performed with two troupes and have taught on individual and group levels. I truly believe in the healing power of this divine art form. It’s an honor to share my joy and passion for teaching sacred wisdom and practices that enhance our radiance, well-being and connection.
When Brooke discovered her love of yoga she immersed herself deep with in the practice right away. She starting learning the history, practicing asanas everyday, and started a meditation practice. Always very physically active, Brooke enjoyed joining mind, body, and spirit in a way that allowed her to move freely and to the rhythm of her breath. Integrating meditation, pranayama and asana, she has learned to access the subtle energy body that is cultivated in a yoga practice, and her goal as a teacher is to share this with her students creating a positive and empowering experience. She uses it teaching style that is accessible to all while still pushes you to your edge. She enjoys styles of vinyasa, hatha, and yin. Brooke is also excited to bring the benefits of yoga to kids and will be leading our Child yoga classes and workshops.
