Brooks

Brooks

Hatha Yoga Teacher

Brooks reveres yoga, and sees it as an art and science of celestial proportions that also connects deeply into one’s earthly nature. Her classes present an opportunity to explore physical and psychological space. And you are likely to hear a poem.

Learning yoga started in childhood when her grandmother saw it as a way to cool the grandkids down before bedtime, and the fires of inquisitiveness that started as seemingly small flames grew into an inferno of epic proportions in her life story—Brooks now teaches yoga full-time! She feels blessed to have learned from many gifted and inspired teachers.

A workshop with Yoga Circle director, Gabriel Halpern, had a strong influence and Brooks came to the Yoga Circle in 2002 where she contingued to assist in Gabriel’s Gentle class weekly, in addition to teaching her regular classes. She is in awe of the voluminous knowledge, and practical wisdom available in the approach to yoga that B.K.S. Iyengar’s technique presents.

She continues to train with certified Iyengar yoga teachers at Yoga Circle in classes and workshops, and blogs regularly about her personal experience and studies of yoga at brookshall.blogspot.com.
