Jody Brennan

NAME: Jody Brennan

NICKNAMES: Mama, Mom

I’M AN EXPERT IN:

Not planning.  Ha!  It continues to surprise me how it always works out better than I could’ve planned.  Of course a bit of direction is needed, but I’ve found the less rigid or planned out I am, the more possibilities and doors open.  I’ve had the best backpacking travel trips that way.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN (HOW YOGA CAME INTO YOUR LIFE):

I was looking to find balance from high impact training in martial arts

FAVORITE FOOD:

Popcorn!  Is that a food?? Or anything that I don’t have to cook  Paired with wine – GOLDEN

WHERE CAN YOU FIND ME WHEN I’M NOT IN THE HOT ROOM:

Outside!  I love the outdoors and am happiest in nature.  I’m also a nerd, so could be hiding behind a book.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN MY CLASS:

Breathing cues, focus on linking breath and movement

WHAT TRAININGS HAVE YOU COMPLETED:

  • Moksha Yoga Training, 2012
  • Yoga for Youth with Ryan Leier, 2013
  • Pre-Natal Yoga, 2015

FAVORITE QUOTE:  

Shit happens. But suffering is optional.
