Brett credits yoga with helping her overcome the overwhelming stress, anxiety and fear she felt as a teen and young adult. After experimenting with yoga in all its forms, she dedicated herself to studying Hatha Yoga, Tantra & Ayurveda under Alan Finger (ISHTA Yoga) in New York in 2005. But even after extensive training, Brett was too scared to teach real people in a classroom setting. She filmed a short yoga sequence to put online instead. This little video catalyzed Brett’s into a full-time yoga YouTuber, teacher, and teacher trainer.
Today, she teaches to a subscriber base on YouTube of over 220K people. Her content is streamed for 3.5 million minutes each month and she won YouTube’s “Next Up” award as one of the top emerging YouTube channels of 2017. She’s also the founder of Uplifted Yoga, a private online yoga and meditation community empowering students to personalize their practice and ignite their best life - on and off the mat. She’s authored over 4 yoga DVDs and instructed at top studios, companies like Google and Pinterest, and on retreats around the world.
Brett discovered myofascial release and began training as a massage therapist in 2012. A lifelong dancer, Brett fused her love of intuitive movement, soft tissue mobilization through myofascial release, and yoga into her Uplifted Online Yoga Teacher Training. Brett has her own podcast, “The Yoga Hacks Podcasts,” where she rants about all the ways she’s using yoga and meditation to micro-optimize her life. In addition, she’s the host of the Sivana Podcast, iTunes top-rated podcast on Spirituality, Yoga Lifestyle, and Conscious Living.
When Brett’s not filming YouTube videos, she’s hiking in the woods (and stretching in the car) with her husband and son.
