About The Teachers

Brandy Davis 

Brandy is a meditation and yoga teacher. She has been studying and practicing for nearly three decades. Her current passion is restorative justice and working with incarcerated populations. She has a particular knack for personalizing deep philosophical concepts and making them applicable to our modern lives.  She teaches with love and humor. Brandy’s greatest joy comes from witnessing the opening of the human heart. 


Brian Baker

Since learning to meditate at age 12, Brian has been striving to incorporate spiritual practice into his daily life. He has been a priest for almost 30 years and has been studying and teaching with Buddhists and Yogis for over 20 years. He facilitated an interfaith conversation with the Dalai Lama, has been a guest at the International Buddhist Conclave in India and is featured in a documentary on the Heart Sutra. He is a popular speaker and teacher in yoga studios and wellness festivals. He is also passionate about social justice and was a leader in moving his denomination (Episcopal) into full marriage equality.


Liani Moore

Liani, a 30 years-trained musician, and 12 years-practicing yogi, recently discovered that the only thing that brings her joy more than music and yoga, is music AND yoga. Equipped with a bachelor’s degree in music, a 500-RYT yoga teacher certi:cation, and a breadth of experience as a stage performer that ranges from church services to night clubs to music festivals, Liani combines art and movement to help create a yoga experience like no other—one that cultivates a profound connection with the source of equanimity, power, integrity, and compassion within each one of us. Through her dedication to creating a life characterized by excellence, passion, and curiosity, Liani has discovered that Vow can be found in any circumstance or context. This musician/yogi/professional obscures the boundaries between work, practice, and play, demonstrating that both material success and personal ful:llment can be found along the same journey towards a balanced, joyful, and meaningful life.

Jenni and Maris like to say in Yoga practice "you create your own experience". That is meant for the experience we create on the mat, but also off the mat. It can be difficult to see that no matter what happens to us, we do have some power over how we experience our life. Even while in Yoga class I tend to credit the instructor more than myself for the positive (and negative) experiences I have. In this retreat I got closer to experiencing my power in creating my own experience on the mat, and off the mat. It is invaluable to have guides on such a journey. Both Jenni and Maris talk about a path they walk. One can tell by the authenticity that is felt and which inspires. I encourage anybody this speaks to to dare to make the jump. And to try to be as open-minded as possible. I did, and I appreciated the retreat deeply. p.s. Luminary Farms is an absolutely wonderful place for such exploration!
I cannot speak highly enough about this experience. I felt so spoiled, supported, loved, and uplifted by everyone involved. Jenni and Maris were incredible. They did an outstanding job of holding space for us and gently guiding our group deeper each day. The food was delicious, the setting was beautiful, the company was superb. I would absolutely recommend any offering from Just Be.
My daughter and I had a wonderful weekend of unplugged time. Jenni and Maris put together a beautiful program. We are very grateful for the people we met, the food we shared and for the hope of meeting again. Liza & Sara
This was an amazing retreat! Everything was perfect- the yoga, the food, the surprises, the meditation, the people! Maris and Jenni planned everything to a T to make for a special weekend that I won’t soon forget. Thank you!!
Such an amazing farm! Dr. Zach Bush and Jenn were incredible. What an amazing day :)
