Hello! My name is Brooke (they/them, she/her).
For almost 20 years, helping people avoid hospitalization, recurrent psychosis, and suicide has proven time and again that Yoga therapy can drastically improve and even save lives. I teach Yoga to all sorts of folks. Most people, whether neurotypical or neurodivergent, move through life more easily by relearning self-inquiry and how to rest. I am a yoga student with my own history of mental and emotional challenges.
Receive specialized peer support, spiritual counseling and evidence-based yoga therapy rooted in discipline and mysticism that works! It is not as exotic as it sounds. It is simple, sacred and calm. It is decolonizing. Rest is activism.
Every single student who has demonstrated a willingness to rest has a success story.
This is so much more than exercise. If you are new to Yoga, injured or in distress, please be assured that Yoga can be accessible to you because the tools and philosophy are varied and vast. 
Yoga therapy is recommended by psychiatrists, nurses, physicians, mental health counselors and behavioral health therapists. Many psychiatrists and therapists have been my students over the years.
There is hope for the epidemics of our time.
Issues associated with trauma, autism, dissociation, queer and gender-queer depersonalization, sexual trauma, and what we label as addiction, PTSD, traumatic brain injury, Kundalini crisis, complex grief, chronic illness and pain, bipolar and borderline personality disorders, auto-immune issues and other physical ailments... I have witnessed students change for the better, again and again.

A note on privilege and the cultural appropriation of Yoga

The active performance of a complete Yoga, beyond physical exercise, is taught to inspire peace, including racial and social equity. I have been given the responsibility to learn, practice and teach a method of Self-realization called Kriya Yoga, which originates from a culture other than my own. I instruct, mentor and counsel, in service, with an awareness of the complexities of modern Western culture and of the commodification of Yoga. As a white, non-binary disabled person with class and education privilege, I am committed to learning how to teach more accessibly, with sensitivity.
