“The intelligence of the body is a sacred tool that we must remember to connect to.
The body’s gut is our intuition’s compass, and it needs to be understood, seen, and heard.”

I grew up as a performer/musician and a child nurtured by nature.
From a young age, I felt the power of intuition and the intelligence of the body. However, I did not have guidance on how to connect and harness the power of these gifts.
In the absence of direction and encouragement, I grew distant from myself. I over-ate to compensate and to process emotions. I disowned my body-and sexuality- and my spirit dwindled. Over the years, I burrowed into a hole of self-doubt and uncertainty.
This self-doubt peeked in 2006 while in acting school in NYC. Finally, out of sheer desperation and loss, I went to a yoga class and began a slow and profound journey of coming back home to myself through meditation and mindful movement guided by the teachings of Feldenkrais and the 8 Limbs of Yoga.
My desperation slowly began to melt away as my practice grew. My self-doubt shifted started to dwindle as I moved closer to myself. I realized that dedication to my "practice" was a dedication to honor ME. It meant owning who I was, and walking through life grounded in my beautiful, powerful, and full self.
I continued my devotion toward my practice and self-discovery, namely to yoga and the word medicine of journaling - until moving to the Southeast in 2012.
It was then I began to explore and dive into expressive art methods, somatic awareness/therapy, and the therapeutic power of sound.
I began deep personal healing and release-especially with my mind & body image. I began to understand the true power of the mind-body connection, and how exploration and expression is key to self-connection. This empowered me to blossom and own my fabulous, powerful, unique, sun-shining, gifts.
In spring 2019, I became YYT certified and began my journey of teaching, workshop collaboration, and coaching.
I love to...
PLAY. "Never loose your childish enthusiasm. This sparks my love for curiosity.
NATURE! My husband and I camp, paddle, walk, surf, hike, PLAY in nature constantly. It feeds my whole being.
MUSIC. I love to watch and play music. I truly believe music heals the soul.
CONNECT. I AM AN INNATE CONNECTOR. It's engrained in me to connect with others. I love to listen, learn, and find deep kinship with others
COOK! Food brings people together, and it's a sensual delicious experience - who doesn't love that?!
READ & WRITE. I am an avid reader of all genres! I also take great comfort in writing and regularly journaling.
WHY DO I DO THIS WORK:
This work FEEDS me, energizes me, and allows my gifts and soul to shine.
For years, I deeply desired and hunted for a career that married my passions, education, and gifts.
I finally uncovered my aligned "career" when I answered my own deep need for self-discovery, healing, empowerment, and growth.
I realized that my service to the world is holding space, offering loving support, and guidance to folx who seeking self-inquiry and mindful change.
"An old soul with a child's spirit combined with the wisdom of ancient roots: that's Brooke German."
"My work as a yoga teacher and embodiment coach, is to facilitate awareness, inquiry, and observation. These acts of mindful action allow individuals discovery toward their innate gifts and in return they often blossom towards personal growth. My offerings allow space and time for clients/students to embrace themselves, to sharpen their curiosity, and thread together mind, body, and breath.
This work of embodied practice is a dedication toward self-inquiry, self-love, and personal growth. It is about developing flexibility and resiliency of both body and mind, so we may move through life from a place of centeredness, authenticity, and compassion. It's about tending to yourself from a place of awareness and compassion.
It can be tough, but it's rewarding work. And the more devotion we offer ourselves to this mindful work, the more innate these life changing qualities become to our being."
