Brittany Stevens

As a world wanderer, I follow my free spirited heart and feet to any direction that will nourish my soul and help me learn more about myself. I made the Journey to India to become a 200hr certified Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teacher. Being able to guide others in their own practice, helping them grow physically and spiritually is truly fulfilling. As I love becoming grounded to my mat and connecting with my breath, I also love doing yoga on my paddle board on Lake Joseph. I believe self love is super important, and encouraging others to love themselves in their own skin. Embracing their imperfections and listening to their body, guided by conscious movement, meditation and breath.
