Brooke attended her first yoga class in 2001, and the calm she experienced during savasana changed her life forever. She spent the next 16 years living in multiple cities across the country, where she practiced everything from Bikram to Vinyasa. Brooke began a daily meditation practice in 2013 after her son was diagnosed with cancer and she needed a healthy and effective coping mechanism. Once her son was in remission, she continued to find solace in both meditation and yoga. Brooke's classes emphasize fundamental yogic principles and proper alignment, while maintaining focus on breath, energy and awareness. She encourages all of her students to practice mindfulness, non-resistance and self-love on the mat, so that they are more equipped to apply the tenets of yoga to their real-life experiences.
