"I absolutely adore Brisa's classes. She is a ball of positive energy and she brings absolute joy to whatever room she is in. I have never left her class without a smile on my face and a sense of my own power and confidence. Her style of teaching is all about giving her students the confidence to find strength in their existing abilities. Her classes are hard - don't get me wrong. I am constantly challenged and always leave at least a little bit sore. But she offers options and variations to all poses, making special note of anyone who might be pregnant.
Since the first time I came to Brisa's class, I haven't stopped coming. I know that anyone who experiences her particular brand of challenging yoga, exuberance, and welcoming will feel the same." Margot S. (Master in Public Health)
