Brendan first started practicing yoga in high school to help with end of year testing pressure. He loved the challenge and movement so he kept up a light practice through college.

Brendan has completed his 200 hour training in Power Flow, a 50 hour Rocket Vinyasa training with Steve Pyka and is set to complete a 50 hour Yin training with Yael Flusberg. He is a learner for life. Brendan's classes merge challenging postures with mindful movement. Expect to sweat and learn something new each time.


Brendan works in DC Public Schools which carries a different challenge, one of constant patience and compassion. Yoga has allowed him to be more mindful in the day-to-day hubbub at school and even to teach pranayama and asana practices to some of his students.


When not on the mat, Brendan loves playing Ultimate Frisbee, drinking coffee, biking or hiking with his dog and wife, Claire.
