Let your fire within burn hot + bright All too often we allow ourselves to be pulled away to tend the external fires of others. Their dramas, their conflicts, their misunderstandings, their pains, their chaos.
For the entire drive from Los Angeles to Mammoth I had a feeling of dread. A little knot of fear in my stomach. "Are you excited?" my friend, my companion on this road trip, asked me as we made the almost-5-hour drive.
"No. I don't even want to snowboard. But I'm making myself do it."
For five years, Brittny was my yoga instructor. Brittny is a very qualified yogi, bringing a deep understanding of both the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga to her students. We started slow but she never let me get complacent. She gauged my energy at the start of every session and directed our practice appropriately. Over the years, friends and family joined me in my weekly yoga practice. Brittny welcomed all! She showed so much compassion to a friend who was mourning her boyfriend's recent passing. As the tears flowed, Brittny talked about how the mat has a way of washing away our fears and sorrow. She has a kind soul and an intuitive heart. -Ann
Brittny is a fantastic teacher who meets each student where they are, both physically and spiritually. I was a beginner, and Brittny led me to the joys of yoga practice. She taught a small group of beginning yogis on Fridays after work. We learned and were encouraged and she challenged us just enough, never too much. I always left feeling rejuvenated and with a healthier perspective on work and life. It was the perfect way to end a week.

When I discovered Brittny's class, I was immediately drawn to the spiritual aspect to her teaching, and to how much of what we learn in her class is relevant in our lives off of our mats. The lessons she shares are centered around radical acceptance of ourselves. She encourages us to gain self-awareness, take ownership of our lives, build healthy relationships and circumstances that are meaningful, to be loving, true and balanced in all that we do. These lessons are brought with grace and laughter and playfulness in her classes that always offer ways to challenge yourself. Off the mat she leads by example, sharing experiences of growth and struggle and joy from her own journey.
