After 10 years in the hair and beauty industry as a colorist , Brie found herself in an increasing toxic world of chemicals, stressed out, creatively feeling stuck and feeling like her professional and personal life were not coexisting in her favor. This was having an affect on her mentally and physically. Needless to say, she was looking for relief. In 2010, this spark of awareness lead her by chance to a local yoga studio. Unbeknownst to her, the teachers she would find in that cozy little room would change the course of her path forever. Fast forward 5 years, Brie is a Jivamukti Yoga teacher living in Thailand for 2 months studying under Homprang Chaleekanha ,a Traditional Thai Medicine doctor and a Thai Yoga Bodywork master. She lived and studied closely with Homprang for over 300 hours during those 2 months covering subjects such as Thai Yoga Bodywork, food as medicine, Thai foot reflexology, womb lifting, how to make and apply hot herbal compresses and how to make products, such as tiger balm, from plants found in Homprang’s garden. The life experience and knowledge she obtained in Thailand is indescribable and life changing. Brie is eternally grateful for Homprang and the many teachers that she has stumbled upon so far in her life. In 2013, Brie spent a month at the Omega Institute in upstate N.Y. and completed the 300 hour Jivamukti Yoga teacher training. She studied under Sharon Gannon and David Life, who are the founders of Jivamukti Yoga, and Lady Ruth, who was a student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois for over 20 years. Brie teaches and practices yoga weekly in Ocean and Monmouth County, N.J.,USA. Forever a student , Brie hopes to be lucky enough to continue to travel and learn from the teachers, people and animals she meets from all over the world. The knowledge, experience and connections she makes on these travels are held near and dear to her heart. In 2016, Brie completed a 600 hour massage therapy program at the Body In Mind Institute where she dove deep into Human Anatomy, Swedish massage, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Hot Stone Therapy, Cancer and Mastectomy Massage, and Thai on the table. Brie is a licensed and insured Massage Therapist in the state of New Jersey.
