Welcome to The Yoga Underground

The Yoga Underground is Utah’s only Taṇhā Yoga studio. Taṇhā Yoga first developed with deep Ashtanga roots, but has grown to include expressive and creative Tantric flowers. Our classes combine the poses and fluid transitions of Ashtanga with the expansiveness, soul-searching, and grace inherent in Tantra. Taṇhā means “having a thirst for living,” and our classes are designed to ignite creative self-expression, leaving you feeling strong, light-hearted, open-minded and optimistic.
 
TYU was founded in 2010 to further spread the vision of the late and beloved Larry Schultz, Bad Man of Ashtanga; Larry’s playful and fun-loving attitude toward yoga inspired TYU owner Brittany Andrews to open her studio with the goal to revolutionize the human hearts of Utah County, one downward dog at a time.

Brittany

Owner / Unicorn

Brittany was raised to use her imagination; with a father who brought moon rocks home from work (his office had a rocket on the roof — as all financial planning offices do) Brittany spent her time trying to fly off the back porch, dig to China, and turn her four brothers into girls (she still doesn’t have a sister, but her brothers have grown on her. And Alex paints his nails, so there’s that.) A Colorado native, Brittany learned to love the outdoors after years of stubborn “ I HATE CAMPING ” arguments. Brittany loves flowers, plants, and outer space (in a magical way, NOT in a scientific way) and spends time reading, hiking, road biking, writing, and using her fiery personality to create adventures, make life interesting, and get into trouble. For Brittany, yoga is a lifestyle that weaves together creative, open-minded thinking, kindness, passion, strength, and love to create a tapestry of beauty woven throughout every aspect of her life — whether she’s in a handstand, stuck in traffic, or taking a nap with her puppy.

Amber

Amber

Amber was raised in the best-kept secret of the United States: North Dakota. Growing up she was always involved in sports and staying active. As a result, eventually she tried yoga, but mostly to explore the physical benefits. Much to her surprise and delight, yoga provided mental and spiritual benefits as well. Finding that yoga has the ability to aid a person understand his/her self better and to live more in the present moment, she wanted to share this great find with others. In her free time, Amber also likes to take care of her horse, do Muay Thai, and eat candy…lots of candy.

Callie

Callie

Callie was born and raised in Seattle, Washington; technically from a city called Sammmamish, but no one can pronounce that! She loves wearing her moccasin slippers, watching Gilmore Girls and eating oatmeal. She grew up dancing and thought that was where her life was headed until she decided to follow her heart in a new direction. She is now at BYU majoring in Exercise and Wellness and minoring in Contemporary Dance. She loves yoga for it’s ability to strengthen the mind, body and spirit. She is all about positive energy, and uses yoga open her heart and reenter the world with a brighter perspective.

Erika

Erika

Erika’s spirit coalesced into being on a beautiful Autumn day in Germany. She was raised between Utah and Washington but Germany still feels like home. She was taught to revere nature and spent her childhood climbing trees, walking barefoot in streams, and hiking the mountains with her dad.

All throughout high school and early years of college, she sang opera and wanted to sing in the Vienna Opera House. Then she discovered floristry and fell in love all over again with nature. She thought she would be content with opera and floristry for the rest of her life, but then she tried yoga and life just is incomplete without it. “It has helped me develop a deeper spiritual connection to the world around me and helped me immensely with body positivity.”
She loves settling down with a good Chai latte and studying her Tarot, oracle and runes. Right now her obsessions are The Great British Baking Show, gardening, and tacos.

Bay

Bay

Bay Vasquez Mehl grew up in Southern Utah in red rock country. When she’s not at the yoga studio she can be found in her natural habitat: cuddled on a couch, reading/writing a fantasy book, teacup in hand, and her cat Helevar in her lap. Her husband often accompanies her to the studio and she accompanies him to the dance floor. She loves yoga because of how it strengthened her body and released her mind. Come to any of her classes if you like bad puns and seeing some crazy curly hair.

Jocelyn

Jocelyn

An artist and maker in almost every sense, Joss is inspired by the mountains, simplicity, Tolkien, Snape, Bob Dylan, McGyver, folktales, Lagertha, those people who convert buses into homes, the many indigenous cultures of the world, and those striving to be their best selves. She’s a thankful Possibilitarian studying Cultural Anthropology and travels the world whenever she gets the chance. Yoga was brought into her life by means of a “Yoga at Home” DVD and a psychedelic 70’s Rock blacklight yoga class with her good friends every Thursday night in the first years of college. It changed her life. She hopes to bring yoga to people who don’t think they can do yoga, in more unconventional ways, because that’s what worked for her. Don’t be surprised if every class has a weird theme with a matching playlist, demanding you to use your imagination! In a subtle way…

Russ

Russ

Russ Lee is the most talented yogi in the world, he can scratch the back of his left ear with his right little toe, (but he is far too humble to brag about it, since he has achieved enlightenment, twice.) There are rumors he sold his soul to reach his level of skill, but those are simply rumors. He gladly gave his soul away at the tender age of 14 for a pack of skittles and a metallica t-shirt. He has never regretted that decision. Russ has accomplished the goal of letting his ego go to the point that now he is better than everyone else. He strives to share his many gifts and talents with the world for the purposes of brainwashing and domination. Namaste.

Dean

Dean

Dean Judd was born and raised in Provo, Utah. He’s been doing yoga for fifteen years and still can’t touch his toes, but he has a mean handstand. Dean’s two favorite things are beer, yoga, and Mexico. He also doesn’t like writing this kind of thing and would rather be working in his yard, skiing or boating.

Holly

Holly

Holly Lambert was born and raised in Springville, Ut. Her husband, three children and extended family are her best teachers and support. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, loves working with the youth and pretty much demands fun wherever she goes. She has a passion for helping others find their divine potential and letting go of their egos. Holly’s love for yoga started yrs ago when she discovered it’s ability to help open her mind, body and spirit to all that is good in this world, and bring to the surface her truth. She is on a mission to connect, lift others, work hard, and most importantly see the good in everyone. Come and play with me! 🙂

Christine

Christine

Christine is a California girl raised in Idaho and Wyoming surrounded by 5 siblings, a big garden and lots of pets. Her yoga journey began in 1990 with classes at her local rec center. She was looking for physical exercise, but soon realized there was so much more to the practice. The transformation and healing that took place in her body and mind were amazing to her.

Fast forward to 2010…. On her post divorce-find-herself tour, she traveled around Asia and landed on the island of Bali where acquired her 200-hour teaching certification in early 2011.
She loves being Nana to her three grandchildren, performing weddings and endlessly traveling in her 1998 Volkswagen camper van, aka “The Gypsy Van”.

“I feel very blessed have yoga in my life. I am a student and continue to learn from every person I meet. What a gift to be able to share this soul healing practice at home in Utah and wherever life and travels take me. Namaste!”

Sadie

Sadie

The best way to describe Sadie is a free spirited, earth loving, hippy! She loves all things from waterfalls to crystals. She spent her time growing up running around bare foot, chasing butterflies and rearranging her room every season to keep good energy and creativity flowing. (still does all these to this day.) Her favorite thing to do is explore the mountains until she finds the perfect spot to connect with Mother Earth, charge her crystals and practice yoga. Sadie relates her yoga practice to a flower, blooming more and more everyday. She believes yoga is all about the love!

Krista

Krista

Born & raised in happy valley Provo/Orem, UT. I love nature, hiking, snowshoeing, traveling, adventures, yoga, my husband, family and friends, my dog, and the lil bun in my oven (coming September 2017). In my spare time I work full time as an accountant and am returning to school for a masters degree. I started dabling in yoga about 10 years ago and was very intrigued but it wasn’t until I began a more regular practice and met some amazing instructors that I fell in love with the mind, body, spirit benefits. I just can’t get enough, I also love the yoga buzz! I have tried and practiced many different forms of yoga over the last several years and love them all (vinyasa, ashtanga, restorative, acro, amrit, nidra, dharma, bikram, tanha, etc). I feel that yoga is the cure for everything and that it helps to provide necessary balance in life. I completed the 200 hr YTT at TYU in May 2017 and it was everything I was looking for and much more. I am so excited to have more tools to be able to share my love of and the amazing benefits of yoga with others and am excited to continue to practice and learn! I love it!!!

Why choose TYU?

From Owner, Brittany Andrews:

– My trainings are kept extremely small and intimate, I won’t train more than 8 people at a time. In my opinion, students deserve a lot of individualized attention when participating in this kind of program. Most programs will take upwards of 25 students, and I think that renders that specific program generally ineffective.

– You will learn how to sequence AND teach a class! It’s surprising how many trainings leave these very important factors out…my method involves learning teaching principles and hands-on adjustment principles from the very beginning. And you’ll get lots of teaching practice, with such a small group.

– The training can get as advanced as you’d like it to be — working on basic poses? Great! Looking to nail that handstand? Fantastic! Focused on flexibility? Excellent! I don’t divide my trainings into levels, because I think that’s highly unnecessary and frankly a waste of your money. (Can’t you tell I’m an savvy businesswoman? Ha.) I am happy to work with the students in my trainings, regardless of the “level” they happen to be at the moment.

– Once you’ve completed the training, you are welcome back for any subsequent trainings, free of charge.

– Lastly, I participate in 100% of my training. It’s my favorite thing in the world. A lot of head instructors “outsource” the majority of their teacher trainings to other instructors, but when you sign up to train with me, you’re training with me.

The teachers are amazing, the classes are glorious, and they’re always doing something fun. If you want to do yoga or already practice a lot go here. Seriously. You won’t regret it.

Praise From TYU Teacher Training Alumni

  • My favorite thing about YTT at TYU was making new friends on my very first day!! As soon as I arrived I felt so welcomed — but we were all so quiet at first which I think is hilarious because by the end you couldn’t get us to stop talking! We all worked really well as a team, which made the learning environment very easy and natural. I feel like we were able to gain a lot of information in a such a short period of time. Best of all this training really taught me how to be one with myself, which is kind of what it’s all about. I couldn’t imagine doing my training anywhere else.

    Maisie
  • Yoga teacher training at The Yoga Underground was a pivotal experience in my life. It helped me develop skills, habits, and a perspective that has not only benefited me in my personal journey, but has also helped my students in theirs. Brittany is a gifted instructor who makes the process fun and engaging. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

    Jordan
  • My YTT was INCREDIBLE! I learned a lot about yoga, (obviously) but I also learned a lot about myself and my love for this practice. I walked away with a smile on my face, because I knew that what I learned was only a little bit of so much more that I could learn. My YTT was the best thing I could’ve ever done for myself and I highly recommend it to people who may be thinking about going down that path. Thank you Brittany for being such a positive, gracious, funny soul in my yoga journey and for helping me grow more genuinely as a person.

    India
  • I absolutely loved learning about both the philosophies and the mechanics of yoga. I feel confident in structuring a class, and I also feel a lot more knowledgable and mindful of my own yoga practice. I’d highly recommend YTT through The Yoga Underground to anyone who might want to become an instructor, or just anyone who wants to deepen their love and understanding of yoga!

    Rachel
  • My favorite thing about my YTT experience through TYU was the inclusion and focus on balance of core skills necessary to realize the full benefits of a regular yoga practice that can be tailored to fit individual needs. I felt the material covered was relevant and current and loved learning and discussing origin and history as well as techniques and benefits of physical, mental, and spiritual yoga. I feel that the training provided the tools necessary for application of the lessons learned and direction for continued learning and growth.

    Krista
  • I recommend yoga teacher training to everyone whether they are super into yoga or not because my experience was life changing! Not only did I expand my yoga knowledge but I expanded myself as a person. The Yoga Underground has a culture of leaving people better than they found them. In the yoga teacher training that philosophy and experience is intensified to such a beautiful level. I have become a better person because of my training and learned so much from the experience. The things you will learn are so valuable that you don’t want to pass up the opportunity. You don’t have to be at any certain level to do it. It’s something you will not want to miss out on.

    Megan
  • Teacher Training at The Yoga Underground has been one of the highlights of my life. I loved every second of it. The meditation and personality recognition classes should be mandatory for all people to learn to live more well-rounded lives. Everything we talked about opened me up more than I thought I could be and it helped me become a better version of myself.

    Julianna
  • My YTT experience isn’t something that can be summed up in a short paragraph or a few sentences. It was an experience that inspired me to evolve into a beautiful version of myself that I have come to admire each day. I learned the skills and confidence to teach a class by the end of 4 weeks, as well as carry out that confidence in the real world to pursue what I truly love. Brittany does an amazing job at showing each person that walks through those teacher training doors how to love themselves through the journey of YTT because it’s not an easy walk through the park. After YTT I felt like my understanding of yoga took leaps and bounds of growth and I understood the culture of yoga, the development, and how I can apply it to my own individual self. YTT has been on of the greatest experiences of my life because of the culture that Brittany has created in her classroom, it’s something you can’t put to words. I encourage everyone to try a class and if you are wanting to pursue teacher training, to ask Brittany about it and have a conversation with her! You will be able to feel exactly what she has to offer just by being around her.

    Desi
  • 200 hr YTT training at The Yoga Underground was such a fantastic experience! I loved yoga before I attended, I thought it would be fun to learn more about it and how to teach a class. I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy the class and the energy Brittany brings to it. The class not only met my expectations but has opened my mind to so many possibilities of being apart of the Yoga teacher world. I am so excited to continue this journey.

    Jamie
  • I loved how in teacher training we didn’t just learn about asanas and Sanskrit, but we learned about ourselves and our emotions. The training was well-rounded and that not only helped us teach yoga, but also enabled us to navigate life more fully and meaningfully. Brittany did so much more than show us how to teach a yoga class!

    Stephanie McAllister
  • If there was another definition under leader, Brittany’s name would be there. She is an exceptional leader. She is right there with you the whole time helping you to understand, embrace and apply yourself, the Asanas, and yoga philosophy.
     
    Doing my yoga teacher training at The Yoga Underground was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life! I will definitely be going back to her for more training! The environment Brittany has created is beautiful. At The Yoga Underground I feel centered and free.

    Julia Waterman
  • Teacher training at TYU was an amazing experience. Not only did I learn a lot about the physical practice of yoga, but I gained emotional and spiritual insight as well. Brittany structured the training so that the pace was quick but with a fun and encouraging atmosphere. If you’re thinking of doing yoga teacher training, do it here!

    Marisa Ostlund
  • I took Brittany’s training in September, 2015. I actually had missed the start date, but was informed by Brittany that she would catch me up and that I could still join. Yoga teacher training was something I had aspired towards for a couple years at that point, yet even still, I was intimidated that I wasn’t ready or good enough. However, Brittany gave me no excuse not to jump in head first and begin, and even after the first day, I began to see my body and emotions begin to heal in a way that they had never been before.

    I have looked and researched into many yoga teacher training courses from Salt Lake to Provo, and I know this sounds cliche, but I honestly could not have picked a more magical program. What I wanted from a program, that I wasn’t quite satisfied elsewhere with, was that I wanted more than just the yoga poses, adjustments and Sanskrit names. I wanted the philosophy. I wanted a taste of what it FELT like to consider the true 8 limbs. This may sound selfish, but I wanted a program I could find healing and empowerment in for myself that I could emanate and share, because that is what yoga has always meant for me. It has always been a savior in my low moments.

    Brittany tapped into a way of understanding that yoga CANNOT be digested, lived, or expressed without self-love and actualization, and it is clear that through her program, she made it her mission to unravel that within us more so than just giving us facts to recite and perform. What I loved the most is that she invited a host of numerous experts and educators who specialized in everything from recovery through meditation, balancing chakras, yoga expression through dance, anatomy and physiology and the science of how to get in touch with our truest temperament type based upon our phenotype. It was so unique.

    To simply say that Brittany created a wonderful teacher training program would be an understatement. Honestly, it is a place of healing, of letting go, of holding on, of creating, of spreading wings, of trusting, and of flying. She cultivated Yoga Chikitsa in its most true and beautiful sense. I hold this experience close to my heart and would recommend it to all I love!

    Ariana Dabier
  • Teacher training at the yoga underground is a thoughtful fusion of yoga instruction and inward reflection. The small groups create a very open and social atmosphere while also allowing for times of quietness and contemplation. Before training started I was expecting a physical challenge. While I did get stronger, the greater challenge was to slow down, be still, and think about who you are and where you want to be. This type of spiritual guidance expands beyond yoga practice and can be relevant to many other aspects of your life and inner self. Gaining a deeper understanding yourself will help you to better connect with others and be a more effective teacher. My favorite thing about Brittany’s training is how individuality is strongly encouraged as you find your own teaching style and voice. I feel equipped to create flowing, unscripted sequences and cultivate a space with a warm, welcoming atmosphere for all levels. I highly recommend training at The Yoga Underground, it is an invaluable investment and an experience you will cherish.

    Deidre Jaeger
  • Yoga Teacher Training at The Yoga Underground was life-changing! I looked forward to it everyday and didn’t want it to ever end. Not only did it strengthen my own physical practice and my ability to teach, but I found that my relationships were strengthened and I had more direction and clarity everyday. I loved Stephen Nibley’s meditation classes and have had many opportunities open up to me since applying the things I learned from him. I can’t recommend YTT at TYU enough! It was completely transformative-emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

    Erika Eddington
  • My favorite thing about teacher training at The Yoga Underground is the community that was built between myself, the other trainees, the teachers, and other yoga practitioners. Everyone is friendly, non-judgemental, and supportive. With a community like that behind you, you can do anything in yoga or in life.

    Bay Vasquez
  • The Yoga Underground offers an incredible 200 Hour Teacher Training. The training accepts varying levels of experience, which allowed me to participate and excel in the program despite having little background. The Yoga Underground cultivates a positive, outstanding environment in which I was able to be inspired and motivated to learn and grow. I love this training because it helps you become an actual yoga teacher. After helping to master foundational concepts, poses, build a personal yoga philosophy and improve on your practice, Brittany capitalizes on developing good teachers. This sets the training apart from many other options. I had the opportunity to teach consistently. Although it was scary at first, it expedited my growth and gave me confidence to teach a real class. Brittany is engaging and makes everybody feel comfortable and capable–a feat that she has successfully achieved at the Yoga Underground.

    Maude Whittle
  • Yoga teacher training at the yoga underground was a most inspiring yet natural experience. In learning how to care for others as a yoga instructor, it seems I’ve also learned how to care for myself. The tools I’ve gleaned from this training are invaluable to me as a future instructor, a caring friend, a healer, and a human being. Teacher training has blessed my life and I’m so glad I choose TYU. Seriously though, it rocked. And rolled. The knowledge gained was perfect in creating a solid base to which we could mold our classes in our own individual way, in a safe, constructive environment. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

    Jocelyn Larsen
  • I was so impressed with the description of TYU teacher training that I flew to Utah and spent one whole month absolutely absorbed in this delightful, daily immersion program. I loved every minute of my training. Brittany is an immensely gifted teacher. Being in her classes opens up possibilities and feels life giving. Her infectious enthusiasm and “can do” attitude on the mat make you feel like you want to try anything and aspire to whatever is the next level for you. I instantly loved the open, high flying and yet down to earth feel of this studio. Everyone was accepted at the spiritual/physical level they were on and it was a beautiful experience watching everyone thrive and improve. With such a small group, we were able to get to know and provide encouragement for each other. We were taught and then given many opportunities to sequence and teach classes and receive valuable feedback as we grew in confidence and ability. Brittany kept everything alive and fresh by mixing it up and bringing in knowledgeable resources from the community to expand our knowledge of meditation, chakras, street and mandala yoga. We went out into the community and enjoyed yoga in the beautiful outdoors, a visit to BYU to learn from the resident physical trainer, even a day trip to Salt Lake City to attend classes at different yoga studios to broaden our horizons. It was highly evident that Brittany puts her all into her teacher trainings, expertly and magically weaving together all of these different elements seemingly into the very fabric of my being so that at the end of the training I felt different from when I first started. My month in Utah flew by and I left feeling charged up and empowered with the experience, skills, and confidence I needed to teach and share with others the life giving skills I was privileged to receive. I highly recommend this teacher training to anyone and everyone who is interested in transformation. The Yoga Underground rocks!!!

    Shari
  • Certifying with The Yoga Underground was truly a beautiful experience. Going into the process I worried if I would be ready to teach successfully in such a short 5 week time period. I finished this program not only capable but with ability and excitement to continue on my journey. The teacher Brittany brought professionalism, fun, and an abundant amount of passion and connection. This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone.

    Holly
  • Teacher training at The Yoga Underground was more than a certificate for me. Being my second teacher training I wish I would have made it my first. Thank you, for the priceless knowledge and experience. Thank you, for the skills, the laughs, and the confidence.

    Kate
  • The Yoga Underground training was so awesome. With the small class size, it allowed Brittany to be able to help us one on one in learning about and perfecting our practice. I cherish the friends and new memories that were created and the experience that I now have.

    Chelsey
  • Teacher training at Yoga Underground was amazing. It did wonders for my personal practice and understanding of yoga, and it helped me learn to be a better teacher. Brittany is an amazing instructor. She is knowledgeable and passionate and caring, and I feel blessed to have had the chance to learn from her and become her friend. Teacher training was a beautiful, transformative experience, and I am profoundly grateful to have taken part in it.

    Christian
  • All I can say is that Brittany’s training was like eating poprocks. It’s full of surprises, delicious, and makes you feel like a kid.

    Alex
  • YTT at the yoga underground is by far the best place a person could go to deepen his or her personal practice or become certified.. Or both! there is a balance between learning the physical practice and the ideas/origin of yoga that creates a great foundation to continue learning from. By the end of YTT, I felt excited and ready to teach classes and confident that I was trained well enough to know what I’m doing. And the place just has great vibes. 🙂

    Amber
  • My yoga teacher training experience at the Yoga Underground was absolutely priceless. Brittany is an incredible teacher, and is an expert when it comes to building creative sequences and crafting an effective class. I learned so much from practicing with her daily and gleaning from her wisdom and experience in our class discussions. Her curriculum is designed to give her students fundamental knowledge base in Ashtanga Yoga while also providing a wide variety of experiences, allowing each student to find their own individual direction in the broad world of yoga. Each day of training was enlightening, educational, and so much fun!

    The two most valuable things I took away from her training were 1) the teaching experience — Brittany is skillful at teaching her students how to teach, and provides many opportunities for them to practice teaching in the training; and 2) the confidence to be an authentic teacher. Brittany has a gift for helping people discover their voice as a yoga teacher, encouraging them to “own” their individual style and strengths that they bring to a class. With these two skills, I felt confident pursuing teaching opportunities immediately after receiving my certification. My current students often comment on how much they enjoy my style of teaching and approach to yoga — I give all the credit to my training at The Yoga Underground!

    Holli
  • I’ve wanted to do a yoga teacher training since I graduated college four years ago. While I loved the idea, I was also so intimidated, thinking I needed to be a certain type of person, have a certain type of body, or even have reached a certain level in my yoga practice. After a friend did her training with Brittany at The Yoga Underground, she convinced me I could do it. After the first day, all of my fears dissipated. Brittany’s program welcomes all levels and all types. Her curriculum is designed to help you better know yourself so that you can be a more effective, authentic teacher. The program is so well-rounded; I not only gained knowledge about Ashtanga yoga and how to better my own practice, but also learned life-changing lessons about meditation, teaching techniques, and methods to better know and understand myself and my students. I love that Brittany focused so much on us becoming the type of teacher we naturally are, not trying to fit any kind of stereotype or expectation.

    The teacher training at The Yoga Underground completely changed my life. Once I finished, I had the confidence and knowledge I needed to build my own sequences and teach classes, but most importantly I’ve enjoyed better health, less stress, and honestly a more joyful life. I cannot say enough about this program and the passion, love, and fun that Brittany so naturally brings to it every day. You will not find a more compassionate, positive environment to deepen your practice, increase your self-knoweldge, love, and awareness, and transform you into a yoga teacher.

  • The Yoga Underground not only gave me the required 200 hours(and then some) for my teaching certification, it literally gave me a new lease on life. I found a fresh sense of self, healthy body, and a clearer mind. What I gained during training is something that money cannot buy. In terms of knowledge, in terms of practice, this studio is unparalleled.
    There isn’t a distance I wouldn’t travel to in order to participate and attend The Yoga Underground Teacher Training Program. There are very few times in life, very rare breeds of teachers, whom one is fortunate enough to be touched by as a student. Brittany is, and forever will be held in my highest regard. She represents all that was, all that is, and all that will be true in this practice.

    Whatever your hesitation, stop. Whatever the excuse, dismiss it. The Yoga Underground will change your life in every way possible. Brittany has one of the oldest soul’s of anyone I have ever been blessed enough to meet. Her intuitive capacity for teaching and exploring remains a mystery to me. All that I know is that I am by far, a better human for being around her. As a teacher, I have never appreciated another student until taking her training. She is the very definition of unconditional love.

    Thank you. Thank you on so many levels for pushing me, for holding me, for making me stand on my own two feet. You have given me the tools to not only teach, but to hone my craft. To love my own practice, to love my own habitually incorrect alignment, to breathe, to focus to forgive. Every day on the mat is another chance. A chance to try again. You have given me the strength to pursue, to engage, to believe in my inherent passion. Brittany, this is a debt that can never be repaid. This life experience is unmatched.

    Thank you Brittany. Thank you for seeing the lump of clay that I was before you, and for allowing the process to mold me. You will always be my North.

  • Last summer I did yoga teacher training with Brittany at the Yoga Underground and it was one of the best months of my life. I learned so much, not only about yoga, but about life and myself. I went into teacher training not knowing for sure if I really wanted to teach or if it would just be a way for me to improve my practice. Well, my practice inevitably improved, but I also found a LOVE for teaching and spreading the happiness, peace, and physical and mental strength (that comes from yoga) with others. Brittany is one of the most amazing people and teachers that you will ever meet with the biggest heart. She will provide you with the knowledge, confidence, and strength that you need to vastly in improve your yoga practice, as well as your ability to spread all that awesomeness to others through teaching. Your life will absolutely improve by doing yoga teacher training at the Yoga Underground. Definitely recommend it!

  • Teaching training at The Yoga Underground was one of the best things I’ve ever done for my practice, my teaching, and myself. I learned so much and enjoyed every moment.

  • The words "amazing" and "life-changing" are often overused or misused nowadays. However, when I say these words to describe yoga teacher training at The Yoga Underground I mean them in their entirety. It was life-changing. I live my day-to-day life differently now because of what I learned. I have grown to understand, love, and accept myself better. I have less stress and anxiety and I am an overall happier person. Brittany is an amazing teacher and has created a curriculum that caters to all kinds of people. She knows how to connect and encourage you in the ways that will best help you. I went into teacher training thinking I would only learn about how to teach yoga but I came out of it with a different and improved perspective on living. I would highly recommend this training to anyone.

  • If you’re considering taking the 200-hour yoga training, The Yoga Underground and Brittany are a fantastic choice. The program is a life-changer in confidence, mental health, and physical well being. You are never to old to improve!!!

  • Brittany was a wonderful instructor. Her energetic personality made learning easy and fun. Her hands on approach to teaching yoga was incredibly efficient. This course is well worth your time!

    Brianna
  • I would recommend the training to anyone. It was more than I expected in multiple ways – I came away feeling confident in the teaching foundation I had received and also felt like I just learned so much about life and myself and others. It was so fun and truly life changing and so so worth the investment!

  • My training at the Yoga Underground was incredibly uplifting for my mind, body, and spirit. Brittany is a deep well of knowledge and gladly answers any questions about any aspect of yoga teaching throughout the course. I got so much out of the YTT program. I have heard of students who graduate from other teacher training programs and feel that they don’t actually know HOW to teach. They feel clueless when put in front of a group of students. I left the Yoga Underground’s program knowing full well how to teach any group of students from start to finish. The program goes in depth on certain topics such as poses, breathing, and mindfulness, while also covering the basics of teaching yoga, which many other training programs often leave out. My favorite thing about the course was that Brittany, The Yoga Underground’s studio owner and extremely educated and trained yogi, teaches the entire 200-hour course, aside from a handful of days in which she hires outside professionals to come in and share some valuable information on their area of expertise. She is dedicated to seeing her YTT students succeed!

  • I signed up with the yoga underground to do my teacher training because of the comfort I received taking classes there. Brittany goes above and beyond to make sure you feel loved, important, and like part of the Yoga Underground family. I graduated with such a large understanding of yoga and an even bigger understanding of myself. I would highly recommend this program to anyone, even if you aren’t looking to teach. You will not be disappointed.

    Alex
  • My favorite thing about the training at the Yoga Underground was how flexible Brittany is about things. I had a work event that made me have to miss a week of the training, and she was so accommodating and allowed me to make it up, and that’s how she always was about everything. She didn’t stress about formalities or strict rules–she just wanted to make sure you learned what you specifically needed to be the best teacher you could be.

    Michelle
  • I am so glad that I decided to certify with the Yoga Underground–Brittany is in it not for the money, but for the yoga, and it shows in everything she does. Her passion and creativity really drive the whole certification process from start to finish. Right after finishing the course, I started auditioning for yoga teaching jobs, and I have never once been nervous or intimidated, something I have Brittany to thank for. She makes sure that every student has ample opportunities to practice teaching full classes and gives feedback on how to improve. Beyond all that, though, is the new sense of being in the world that I have. My mindset will truly never be the same, and it is thanks to Brittany for opening so many new worlds to me!
