Revisiting my yoga practice thru the Sage Apprenticeship program has helped form a foundation of understanding and knowledge. I did not have the awareness, or ‘tool kit’ of different Asana’s to call upon for my personal practice, and was unaware what profound knowledge this is bringing to my personal practice. Generic Yoga classes were not serving my body, as my hips and over flexibility which had caused me to stop taking Bikram Yoga were not addressing my body and needs specifically. I came to study with Brooke because i needed to find a reason to create certain sequences and know why and what affect this is creating. Thank you for the forward folds, laterals, finding my own way to create two hours practices that actually restore prana and balance. Thank you for bringing empowerment and awareness. The weekly tea that draws herbs from the season and defines to us what to be participating in with the seasonal plants and what healings are available at that time. Studying with various Master teachers in this field. There has been so much in this program around the Yoga; Cultivating a vibrant life practice thru the body filling the mind and heart into the Wisdom of our connectedness. Thank you for sharing the strength of your life practice with us.” – Alexis, graduate of the Sage Apprenticeship Fall 2015 in Nevada City, CA.
“My favorite part was the plants and the storytelling…I have never experienced anything like this before.” Michael, River Guide – Rapid Transformations: A Tantric White Water Journey“Amazing…what a magical blend of yoga and herbalism! You are such a gifted teacher!” -Christina A. Honeyroot Women’s Embodiment Retreat 2014
“If you haven’t received the benefit of Brooke’s teaching first hand, I strongly recommend attending her classes! She is a masterful teacher, grounded in personal experience and wise beyond her years. She truly embodies the wisdom of the ancient yogic teachings.” -Daisy Marquis, Master Energy Healer and Founder of The Shanti School in Asheville NC“Brooke’s classes come from the heart and really resonate with me. I met Brooke in 2012 while on retreat in NC. I have severe Asthma and was having a rough year. I went to her workshop “Essence of Immunity” and was amazed by her knowledge of Herbs and Yoga. Her class was different than any I had ever taken and I walked away with a new found sense of calm and strength. I practiced the Ojas building sequence she taught daily for two months and took the Vital Body tincture as well. I have not had an Asthma flair in the 7 months since, and have made it through two of my worst times of year. She has also influenced my teaching style greatly. Brooke is an amazing teacher!” -Kelly Crenshaw 200-hour RYT Knoxville, TN
