In early 2020, A former University Professor and Doctor of Clinical Psychology started a very important initiative to help those who suffer from C-PTSD (Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). A group of her clients consented to her inviting me to assist in offering trauma-informed yoga services to them and
SACRED SPACE was born! I am so excited! Thanks to Yoga Podcast's partnership with Lululemon Collective, we have raised over $25,000 in grant funds to be used for our upcoming project scheduled to launch in 2023 dedicated to the Mi Comunidad Birth Project, providing prenatal and postpartum Birth Advocates and Doulas to victims of abuse of any nature!
Our goal is to expand Sacred Space to underfunded non-profit organizations that need therapeutic services to those suffering from C-PTSD. We are currently working with a few established organizations, university interns and of course, yoga teachers to realize this dream!
Currently, I am completing my Doctorate in Education with the hopes of facilitating trauma-sensitive training programs with an emphasis in Yoga Therapy, in connection with The Wellness Studios, under the mentorship of Dr. Sandra Herrera-Spinelli, LCSW.
Welcome! I am excited to embark on this journey with you!
I LOVE YOGA SO MUCH
...it has allowed me to take care of myself in many ways through the Mind-Body-Spirit connection.
I have learned to have more self-awareness through introspection and have used yoga as a restorative tool in my own life.
I am a former pro-dancer and cheerleader - turned marathon runner, my body was pretty beat up and out of alignment. I came to yoga purely for physical reasons, however, as yoga does, it connected me back to myself and changed my life in so many ways.
My love of anatomy and physiology has had a tremendous influence on my style of teaching, I do believe in understanding the body from a purely anatomical standpoint and having a solid foundation in this area of study helps me as a teacher in explaining the yoga poses. Our body has an infinite wisdom that lends itself to the practice organically.
However, I truly believe that the mind is where the magic is really taking place. I believe our mind can play tricks on us, tries to protect us and sometimes even withholds information from us and this is where meditation and other yogic practices can really help connect us back to self and change our lives!
I highly encourage students to consider having routine personal one-on-one yoga sessions with a yoga teacher, this is an amazing way to grow your own personal yoga practice, you can focus on areas that are challenging you and even receive assistance on creating yoga sequences designed especially for your body.
I offer this service and many other opportunities to enhance your personal practice, check out the Menu above on this website as well as the Love, Breezy Bree Yoga Podcast!
Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read and learn more about yoga, my services and myself.
