Brooke grew up as a classical musician and vocal artist. She got accepted and graduated from The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts in 2007. She has been a mover and yogi for over a decade and officially gained her RYT 200 in 2019. She continues her yoga & therapy education toward her 300HR with courses that include: somatic therapy, yoga nidra, mindfulness meditation, trauma informed training, and most recently a masterclass on the vagus nerve. Her approach to her teaching comes from a somatic and therapeutic lens; she identifies her work and practice as "embodiment".
Soon after becoming certified, Brooke started teaching yoga publicly and privately. She has taught at Asheville Yoga Center, West Asheville Yoga, and has various private clients and accounts with corporations. She regularly collaborates with Many Moons Counseling to offer somatic workshop experiences as well as various sound/movement offerings.
Brooke is also a sound practitioner with a classical and vocal background. She uses traditional over tone-emitting instruments, her voice, and cello in her work.
Her unique use of cello adds another layer to the soundscapes she creates for this therapeutic work.
As a sound practitioner, Brooke uses her classical background and sound teachings from the Himalayan Sound Academy, Alexandre Tannous and Randall McClellan. She facilitate sound meditations for public, group, and corporate sessions both in persona and virtually. For virtual experiences she utilizes a binaural microphone so participants get the sound experience as if they're in the room. You can read more about this technology here.
She also brings her work to festivals, poetry readings, and yoga studios/classes.
