Brittney Kanan

I come from a traditionally raised family with 2 great parents, & 3 siblings, an older brother and 2 younger sisters who mean the world to me. I have my degrees in Culinary Arts, Pastry Arts, Hospitality Management, Business Management and Marketing. I had my whole life planned, but then life happened. Through the tragedies and struggles, I was looking for something, anything that would get me through the day with some sort of real living in it, some meaning, some passion, I just didn’t know what it was. I've always been athletic, but after some (yes, some) injuries I couldn't exercise the way I normally did. One day a co-worker mentioned she was going to a yoga class at the Yoga Shelter, and reluctantly, I tried it. I didn’t think yoga was for me, I thought that people who did those kinds of movements and poses were ‘weird’. When I went to the Yoga Shelter I was instantly in awe of the community, the environment, the type of yoga they were practicing, and the people. I felt a connection to the music and the messages in the classes. I learned that Yoga isn't just a physical practice, but a mental one, it's not only a work-out, but a work-in. Yoga is a way of life. We learn tools on our mat and in our studies that can be carried into our daily lives. That fascinated me. This was it! I finally found what I had been looking for all those years. I knew immediately I needed to be a part of it. I went back again and again and before I knew I was there every day. I went to the life and teacher training and it changed my life forever. I found myself and something I am passionate about with every fiber of my being. I couldn’t be happier living the life I want to live! Peace, Love & Namaste, Brit
