Brooke began practicing yoga in 1998 and has been teaching for nearly as long. Hatha yoga quickly became a doorway leading to Brooke’s discovery of mind/body healing modalities and spiritual practices. She is inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, and Diane Long who was Vanda’s main student for 23 years in Florence, Italy. Vanda spent over 40 years discovering and uncovering layers of aliveness and vitality in her body through the cultivation of her awareness and her willingness to be a beginner each time she came to her yoga. Diane, a dynamic and inspiring teacher, has continued the discovery and refinement of this practice for over 45 years teaching worldwide. In 2000 Brooke met Diane on one of her first visits to Philadelphia and has continually studied with her ever since. The cultivation and refinement of Brooke’s studies and practices have become as much of a journey for Brooke as her life itself. It is from this place that Brooke extends her offerings and teachings.
