There are no retreats planned with me at the moment but, if you sign up to my mailing list you will get first dibs at a spot!

“The first class I ever went to was on labour day a few years ago. Centretown was the only location open that day, so it was jam-packed with people. Brittany taught the class and used a microphone because it was so full. Somehow that made it all the more powerful. Overall it was just such a magnificent experience, the music was great, the class was great, and I felt amazing the whole way through. I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to yoga. .” 

“Walking into a class with Brittany you can expect three things. First, a unique flow that makes you feel strong, healthy, and happy. Second, a safe space that makes you feel mentally empowered and energized. And last, a yoga instructor who is so much more than just that; an individual who emulates the mantra she always shares at the end of class "always be humble and kind."” Andaleeb Shariff



I spent most of my young adult life as a professional dancer. I was fortunate enough that it took me to some incredible places like New York City and Australia but, along the way I sustained some serious injuries that forced me to reconsider my direction . One day my mom dragged me out to a yoga class, and from that moment on I have been following my path on my mat. 


Core values



 I have had the opportunity to  teach for some incredible events such as...
Parliament Hill Yoga 2016-present
Lole White Tour Ottawa 2017
City Of Om Yoga Festival
I have also led classes for the Womens national hockey league, the OCSB, and the Ottawa Yogini yogathon for womens charities. 


Core values

I am forever and always a student. The moment that I feel like i "know it all" is the moment I will be failing my students. My goal is to  always be pursing the "why" and continue to ask as many questions as I can. 

I want to be a teacher in its truest forms and lead by example so that i can help future teachers find their paths as well.
