About Brette

After 25 years as a top manager in the frenetic world of magazine and internet publishing, I wandered into my first yoga class in 2000 and was immediately transformed by its benefits. Soon I found myself deeply immersed in yoga asana and philosophy.


In 2005 I completed a 200 hour teacher training with Alison West's Yoga Union. Then in 2009 I received a 500 hour certification, as well as certification in teaching backcare from Ms. West. Now I study with Ms. West, Genny Kapuler, Nikki Costello and Amy Matthews and assist Ms. Kapuler on Wednesday evenings.


A voracious student, I currently study Sanskrit with Prem Sadasivananda, Tai Chi with Sharon Smith and Tibetan Buddhism with Khenpo Pema Wangdak. For a more complete run-down of my training and interests click here. My professional CV on Linked In can be viewed here.

Yoga is a process of individual self inquiry and my role as a teacher is to provide a safe environment for investigation. My classes emphasize a combination of movement and alignment with a healthy dose of yoga philosophy and anatomy. 

A life-long New Yorker ardent student and avid traveler, I am interested in ideas and concepts from art, nature, current events, philosophy, science and the world around us.
