  1. Hello =) ,
    I had the pleasure of meeting Brittany through the Teacher Training last year. I really enjoyed being in the training and miss those times very much… Brittany, I know I have not been in touch , but I really did appreciate meeting you. You are pleasant to be around, always make others around you feel comfortable and I am really happy for you to be out there teaching!

    Brittany’s openness towards others during yoga practice, is a beautiful quality that I think students of different abilities and backgrounds will really benefit from and appreciate.

    All the best, always! 🙂
