Teacher, Heart Adventurer, Inspiratrice
A lifelong educator with a M.A in History, E-RYT 500 & Tier 3 Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher, Brandy Berlin has a heart for authentic connection. During her 20 years in high school classrooms, Brandy saw the increasingly urgent social and emotional needs of her beloved students not being addressed within the standard curriculum. So, she pursued her yoga teacher certification and consciously infused self-inquiry and personal development elements into her social studies lessons.
Now, Brandy facilitates the Baptiste Foundation’s Unstoppable Yoga for Youth Training Program which exists to create a resilient generation of children that use Baptiste Yoga as a life skill. Co-owner of Namaspa Yoga Community and co-founder of Evoke Energy Yoga, Brandy leads lovingly fierce classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings that invite all humans to break open their forbidden happiness and lead more empowered lives by digging into the mud of the moment and challenging the self-limiting beliefs that thwart and constrain them.
Brandy believes that “together the teacher and the taught do the teaching”, and her powerfully playful and often comically introspective offerings leave space for her students to grow, transform and heal.
What if life is conspiring to shower you with blessings?
What if you claimed the rewards promised to you from the beginning of time?
I believe in PRONOIA, the antidote for paranoia, the understanding that the universe is ingeniously & fundamentally friendly. Pronoia is Jedi training for your senses so you're able to perceive the fact that life always hands you exactly what you need exactly when ya need it.
So step into the Truth & Beauty Lab, Gorgeous Genius, for explorations, experiments & exercises consciously created to evoke your ever-changing, masterfully magical, whole-hearted rowdy bliss!
#UNSTOPPABLE Yoga for Youth Training Program
Sunday, February 24, 9a-6p @ BEND STUDIO
This is a training for anyone who works with youth - school teachers, school counselors, aides, coaches, community center employees, police officers, etc. You will learn through an embodied experience, a set of tools to teach basic yoga poses, breathing, meditation and relaxation techniques to youth in whatever setting you encounter them in. The training will also give an introduction as to why and how these tools can help people who have experienced trauma.
The Unstoppable for Youth Training provides methods and tools that support youth with dealing with stress and teaches them how to calm themselves, empower themselves, and can be used at any time; anywhere. This training will cover how yoga, meditation and self inquiry are powerful tools for your own self care, but also through an embodied experience for yourself, how you can share them with others.
YIN YOGA NIDRA TRAININGS @
HEART & GRIT Power Yoga (formerly Moonshine Power Yoga) is located in the Short Hills Town Center at, 484 Evesham Road, Cherry Hill, NJ.
Yin Yoga is one of the fastest growing styles of yoga and helps tone connective tissue, ligaments and tendons which are critical to our physical well-being and range of motion. Postures are practiced on the floor and each is held for 3-5 or more minutes. As a result, the body is energized, encouraging a free flow of chi/prana/life force of the body that often gets blocked or stagnant.
Saturday March 2nd 9:30am - 6:00pm / Sunday March 3rd 11:00am - 2:00pm
(option to take 9:30am Power Yoga Class)
Yoga Nidra, “the Yoga of Sleep” is gaining popularity. It is a conscious relaxation practice where you will experience a deep state of release while at the same time maintaining complete awareness. It assists in easing tensions and bringing healing to the body and mind. This training will begin with a 45 minute Yoga Nidra experience followed by an overview of the history, physiology and science of Yoga Nidra and will culminate in practice leading Yoga Nidra.
