200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
2019 Enrollment Starting Soon!
When I stumbled upon yoga in 1998, I knew that this was something much greater that I had ever imagined, and it lit a fire in my soul to begin sharing it with others. We come together from different histories and meet on the mat to find that inner peace, with compassion and gratitude.
The idea is to promote self-practice and self-responsibility, to offer a tool for reconnecting. This is the place where yoga truly begins in each of our own individual lives. Yoga helps us RISE to the challenge of living. We each teach from a place a truth and open-mindedness, creating a safe place for self-exploration.

I recently began practicing yoga at Barefoot Studio. My life and my body have been transformed. As a physician, I am impressed with Breezy’s extensive knowledge and understanding of human anatomy. She promotes proper alignment with an awareness of individual students needs. I can confidently recommend Breezy to my patients, friends, and family. - Dr. Justin Seale, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon
Breezy’s knowledge of yoga, kind attitude, and expert ability to construct a class has kept me going to her studio for 10+ years. Breezy offers stimulating and challenging classes, but always explains poses thoroughly and offers modifications if your body needs it. Yoga poses aren’t always natural for students to get into and Breezy has an angel’s touch to align you to a better pose. - Jan Zelnick
I stepped into my first yoga class about six years ago with zero expectations. Breezy happened to be the instructor. Six years later, Yoga now occupies a defining part of my life and Breezy still guides my practice weekly, mindfully emphasizing the journey over the destination. Her approach is balanced, foundation-focused, unforced, and nonjudgmental, and her classes are smartly-sequenced, informative, challenging, and safe. I’m forever grateful to Breezy and the Barefoot community for their dynamic contributions to my evolving practice. - Ricco Ardemagni
One of my favorite aspects of Breezy's teaching style is that no matter what level she's teaching, she always provides modifications for poses. Offering different options in this way serves to encourage rather than pressure which can mean the difference between challenging yourself & hurting yourself. Breezy's careful selection of words and impeccable timing allows her to convey complex concepts while providing seamless instruction that allows you to focus completely on your practice. It is apparent to me how much she has paid attention to the evolution of her own practice because it sometimes feels as though she's reading your mind when she says exactly what you needed to hear in a particular moment. She is never afraid to tell you about poses that she herself may have difficulty with, reminding us that all of our bodies are different so certain movements may be more challenging for some than for others. This openness creates a supportive environment where you can find comfort instead of judgement. Although Breezy has put so much time & effort into her teaching it comes across so naturally & genuinely; beautifully "combining effort with ease," to borrow a phrase she often uses in class. - Adrienne Bennett
