Meet Guest Instructor, Brittany Carter!

 

Meety Brittany Carter, our retreat co-teacher! 

Brittany has a lifelong background in dance. Her awakening started the year she finished college when she accepted that her path would be different than she thought.  However, it 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.

Fantastic Fabulous Wonderful Enjoyable Relaxing
Marla’s retreats are extremely well put together, and offer a variety of classes for all skill levels! She is so personable and truly an inspiring yogi. I think people are drawn to her classes and retreats because of her uplifting energy and natural flow of teaching yoga practice. The Journey to the Soul Retreat was just what I needed! I loved the chakra work, meditation, gentle and power up yoga sessions, journaling, etc. Just cannot say enough about all of the positives of this experience! 🙏
