Brooklyn by Amanda Hanson | Mar 26, 2023 BROOKLYN DERKSON The practice of Yoga created a safe container for Brooklyn to come home to her body and herself in full. In pursuit of high-performance endeavors, she pushed through mental, emotional and physical limits which ultimately led her down a path of injuries, burnout and complex chronic health circumstances. Yoga has nurtured a space for recognition, witnessing and welcoming of the mind-stuff and the body-stuff that she experiences. Through her journey, Brooklyn has formed a budding passion as a teacher, to create an environment in which students can explore the transition from a space of doing to a space of simply being. As a registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) and recent iRest (Integrative Restoration) Level 1 Meditation Teacher, Brooklyn aims to guide students through an inclusive, compassionate and explorative practice with sprinkles of playfulness, joy, nature and connection. She deeply values and believes in the benefits of yoga and connecting with the body for stress management and supporting overall health and wellbeing. Through breath, movement, visualization and gratitude practices, she invites you to join her to re-energize and recalibrate, mind-body-heart and soul!
