Brittany completed her 200-hour teaching certificate in Ashtanga Vinyasa with Paul Dallaghan at Yoga Thailand in 2009. In addition to her certification, she completed a five-week study at the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute, in Mysore India. While in India, she studied chanting, Sanskrit, pranayama, and the Yoga Sutras. She has spent the last twenty years studying a variety of yoga, pranayama, and meditation lineages. She credits the growth she has made to the wisdom of her teachers Adi Amar, Bhavani Maki, Rama Jyoti Vernon, and Sam Harris. Brittany teaches yoga to share the transformative practices and philosophies that shaped her life! She hopes to help you increase your awareness of how powerful the mind is, and how joyful and peaceful it can be to experience pure presence.

WHY ROOTED HEART

We are a small and community-based studio, focused on providing comprehensive and holistic training. We believe that a yoga teacher training should be a nourishing and life-changing experience, and that no matter where you’re at on your life path, you can deeply benefit from an exploration of the ancient wisdom of yoga. Rooted focuses on the mind, body, and spirit, and the ways that we can heal ourselves and others. We will teach you how to deepen your personal practice, spread mindfulness into your everyday life, and confidently guide yoga classes.

With renowned and experienced teachers, the Rooted YTT gives an excellent foundational experience, based on the authentic yogic practices of yoga asana, pranayama, mantra, and meditation. Every morning we begin with 2.5 hours of practices that support spreading intelligence and ease throughout the body and mind. Smaller group sizes allow for more personal attention from instructors and potential for deep friendships. 

Our training provides a rich education in the roots and eastern philosophies. The entire training is guided through the lens of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, as these sutras offer us a roadmap to acceptance, love, and peace. We also practice mantras and teach lessons from the first text of yoga, the Vedas and Upanishads and have a master teacher guest teach several Ayurveda sessions. 

The best things students say about our training is that it changes their relationship with themselves, and therefore, positively reflects on all of their relationships in life. Yoga is a journey to the heart and an opportunity  to understand the power of the mind. We intend to support you and guide you to step forward into the most true version of you. If you are ready for a progressive transformation towards the health of your mind, body and spirit, you are ready for this training!  

 

Calling contemporary yogis who desire to bring playfulness, discipline, and reverence to the mat and beyond. The time is now to step into a more grounded and expansive version of yourself. We want you to be your truth.
