As an instructor, I do my best to bring the practice of yoga to my students from where they are. I strongly believe that yoga is for everybody, not that a person needs to be or look a certain way to practice yoga. My lineage of yoga is one of empathy and adaptation for each of my students. I believe that yoga meets each student where they are, and from this approach, all students can achieve goals that are attainable for their practice. I teach vinyasa and hatha yoga primarily, using the poses to help students experience the sensations in their body and become transformed by the practice.
I am a certified yoga instructor through the Yoga Alliance and have been practicing hatha, vinyasa, yin and restorative yoga for 10 years. I have taught many students one-on-one and in group settings to help deepen their practice and to reach their individual goals in terms of yoga. I am an empathetic teacher and I do my best to meet all of my students' needs.

Having known Brandi for 20 years, I was simultaneously pleasantly surprised and not at all surprised that she was an excellent yoga instructor! She has always had a calm, encouraging spirit, and it truly comes to the forefront when she is guiding you through poses. She gave me some solid and helpful feedback, and I truly am looking forward to working more with her on my yoga practice! She would be a great instructor for beginning and intermediate yogis, for sure!
I took a couple beginner classes with Brandi and she gave me a great introduction to Yoga. She has a calming voice and disposition which quickly sets a great tone for the session. She made yoga very easy and enjoyable for me. Thank you, Brandi!"
Brandi is a delightfully gifted yoga teacher. She has a passion for the art of yoga that is evident when she shares her gifts with others. She is committed to furthering her yoga studies and learning new and innovative ways to help her students feel good in their bodies. Her warm voice invites you to practice at a level that is comfortable yet challenging. She is a breath of fresh air to the yoga scene in Tucson, and I can't wait to take my next class with her!
Early in 2020, with everything going on, I lost my connection to yoga. As luck would have it, Brandi began offering virtual yoga instruction, and I joined her classes. After only one class with Brandi, I knew she was a great instructor. Brandi clearly has a deep understanding and appreciation for the practice and teaching of yoga. She is able to talk her students through moves with modifications while always reminding us about our breath. She also has helpful reminders about positioning (how certain poses should feel, and encouraging us to check in with our bodies for any pain.) Brandi also helps her students work up to more challenging poses while offering time for practice of those poses if you're ready (and letting those of us who are still working up to something know what to do in the meantime to build strength and work up to that ultimate pose/goal.) I will be practicing with Brandi for as long as the opportunity allows! She has been so impactful with her virtual sessions that I'm certain her in-person sessions will only be more enjoyable. Thankful to have found her and her practices!
