Hello! My name is Brooke and I am a 200 HR certified Yoga Instructor with three small boys at home. As an Air Force Veteran and having deployed to Afghanistan for a total of 4 years, I have personally experienced the amazing benefits yoga can provide when practiced on a regular basis. I am extremely humbled when my students confess that yoga relieves aches and pains that they have been living with for years. I've witnessed students finally finding an outlet to alleviate their anxiety, panic attacks, and/or PTSD. Since finding Yoga and experiencing and witnessing some of these benefits for myself, I have made it a personal goal to help as many people as I can to find their calm.
I know how hard it can be to incorporate a regular fitness routine into today's hectic lifestyle. Traveling regularly for work, trapped with extremely long commutes to the office, busy at home with new babies, working multiple jobs, going to school full time, or whatever your circumstances, I empathize; I've been there! This is why I provide plenty of classes to fit everyone’s schedule! So take a journey with me and together we can find our own vision of enlightenment.

I started practicing yoga consistently in July 2016. When I first tried yoga it was just a home video. I really enjoyed it and it piqued my interested. Eventually I decided I wanted to go take a hot yoga class… ended up going by myself, where I didn’t know anyone. I loved the atmosphere and fell in love during my first few classes. When I began going regularly I started to find that I had particular teachers that I preferred. These teachers were encouraging, positive and I always felt uplifted after speaking with them or taking their class. I quickly came to the realization that I wanted to be that for someone else. It didn’t matter how I felt I did during class they were always there to refocus things into a positive light. The teachers reminded me that wherever I was at or wherever my body was at that day that it was ok, each day is different and each day your body is different.
In Spring of 2017 I started my teacher training at Hot26 School of Yoga with Emily Henderson. Even though I’ve graduated, I consider myself to still be in training, it’s an ongoing journey with Emily as my yoda (trainer). The training was the best decision I could have made. I’ve learned so much not only about yoga but about myself and about how to encourage others. I strive to be like my favorite teachers for others as they walk into the studio and to show them that any body can do yoga, you just have to start. Through the training and after I’ve met amazing people that have become part of what I like to call my yoga family. Yoga has been my sanity, my brain vacation and my saving grace through a turbulent time in my life.
Yoga doesn’t care about athletic ability, your race, your gender, your religion or your income; yoga has a way of reaching you when you need it, wherever you are.
My yoga journey started back in March 2016 when I offered to join a co-worker after work one day. I continued as a student there until the studio closed its doors in April 2018. From here, I continued my practice at home by making yoga space in an extra bedroom and obtaining an online membership for yoga videos. A couple months later, I realized I really missed the Hatha dialogue and felt there was so much more to learn about yoga. It was at that point in time I decided to do teacher training and remembered Emily Henderson from the other studio. I knew if I was going to make this journey that I wanted to learn under Emily. I graduated from Hot26 School of Yoga teacher training in the Fall of 2018, and each day I strive to be a positive, motivating instructor for others as others have been for me. I teach Hot26, Flow, and Little Pretzels.
I graduated from the Fall 2018 Hatha Teacher Training at Hot26. I began yoga in 2017 on orders from a therapist for anxiety and depression, and instantly fell in love. After realizing what a profound impact yoga had on my life, I decided to dedicate my life to sharing yoga with others. I teach Hot26 and Fusion classes.
