Meet our returning co-teacher, Brittany Carter!
Brittany has a lifelong background in dance. Her awakening truly began with her four-month voyage through Southeast Asia, studying Buddhism, Hinduism, yoga, and meditation. Her dancer spirit and discipline of Ashtanga allow her to play with the balance between structure and creative flows. She is an intuitive teacher that is able to adapt to the needs of the students and surrender her idea of how things 'should' go so that the highest good can be met.
She has developed a unique style that focuses on nuance, presence, and playfulness; aiming to keep you on your toes, but with a smile. :)
Jessi has been studying yoga for over 15 years. She decided to take the plunge into becoming a certified yoga teacher in March of 2019. She has been teaching ever since, both in fitness studios and providing private lessons. She strives to help her students in ways that accommodate their individual needs while providing a safe and nourishing environment in which to deepen their practice.
Her journey to yoga began when she first moved from Indiana to Maryland in 2005. It was then she discovered the joys of yoga while practicing under a physical therapist, who was also a certified teacher. It was love at first stretch. Since that first session, she has developed a passion for meditation and breathwork as a way of helping to center herself and her students into finding the tranquility and relaxation of the practice. She has traveled around Europe and Australia studying under many talented teachers, who have all helped her develop both her teaching style and spirit.
Jessi is looking forward to meeting you in Mexico for some fun, fellowship, and relaxing beachside yoga!
