I have been going to Inner Vision since 2008. I took my teacher training there. The teachers are some of the best I've ever had the pleasure of taking classes from. I have tried other studios, but I always come back to Inner Vision.
They offer a variety of classes and different styles of yoga. I recommend Inner Vision to anyone who would like to experience the best!
Between the stimulus and the response there is a pause and
within that pause lies our power, freedom and peace. ~ Viktor
Frankl (Author of Man’s Search for Meaning).
Long a favorite quote of Brigitte
Yancy’s and one that she says profoundly describes yoga in
daily life. “Whether it is an asana practice on the mat away
from the stimuli of the busy world around us, a simple break in the
day to stop wherever we might be to take several attentive breathes
and open our senses to our surroundings, or the easy stillness and
deep silence that can be found in the pause after an exhale during
meditation … through each of these ‘pauses’, we are able to truly
practice yoga and move into mindful responses and a sense of ease
no matter what life may be offering us.”
A yoga and meditation practitioner since 2002 and a teacher
since 2008, Brigitte connected with yoga through a deep and
intuitive need to slow down and find space to step back from a
demanding job with a hectic travel schedule. Her journey in both
practicing and teaching yoga is one of continued learning and
always remembering what an honor it is to be able to share yoga and
meditation with others.
Each of her yoga classes at Inner Vision is a unique sequence of
movement and flow for practitioners of all levels and is designed
help students connect with and explore their bodies and breath, so
as to move in ways that are healthier and more intuitive for their
unique body. Each practice is journey which offers new challenges
and an exploration of doing poses in new ways or trying new poses
in ways that are best suited for each individual student. Each
class is also complemented with a dynamic and artful blend of
subtle background music to stir the senses and help students find
and better move to their own, fluid rhythm. Each class is an
opportunity to move into the pause, away from stimulus, to gain
clarity and insight, for the subsequent, post asana class
Brigitte is a true believer that yoga can be adapted for any
body and she teaches adapted and chair yoga in Scottsdale to
students with MS and other movement disorders and Yoga for
Parkinson’s for the Muhammed Ali Parkinson’s Center. She also
teaches meditation including Meditation for Beginners and
Mindfulness and Metta (Loving Kindness) Meditation practices.
When not on the mat or meditation cushion, Brigitte can be found
hiking and playing outdoors or spending time with her two amazing
daughters, Nikki and Brandi or with her rescue pups, Piper and
Charlie. (But really … who rescued who?)
As well as being one of our yoga teachers, Brigitte is also our
Teacher Manager and Web/Online Marketing Manager.
