Brianne Wieler

After years of competitive horseback riding, Brianne found her way to yoga as a way to heal her aching body and combat chronic illness. She quickly discovered that a dedicated practice and meditation allowed her to find her way to a healthy and joyful life, and opened the door to a community and calling that have enriched her life immeasurably. Brianne completed yoga teacher training in the Hatha tradition in 2014 and continues to study alignment, therapeutics, philosophy, breath work and meditation - in particular, in the Anusara and Ashaya schools of yoga. With gratitude, Brianne acknowledges her principle teachers: Shirlee Williams, Cynthia Cooperstone, Michael Siddall and Todd Norian. Under their influence, she has developed a style of teaching that is playful, heart-oriented, and grounded in precise and proven alignment principles.
