When Brittany went to her first yoga class circa 2006, she was actually not a fan of the practice at all. Growing up as a competitive swimmer, she first proclaimed yoga to be too slow for her, and she was rather skeptical about the mind-body aspect. If it wasn’t fast-paced and competitive, she was pretty sure she didn’t want to do it.
Luckily, two or three years later, Brittany gave yoga another try. As she began to practice more, she discovered benefits in her body that also furthered her other athletic endeavors. More importantly, the more she practiced, the more she experienced benefits in her mental state. Brittany found yoga to be a way to find peace in the midst of difficult situations, emotions, and disarray.
After several years of regular practice, Brittany made the commitment to complete 200 hour yoga instructor training. In 2013, she graduated from a training program in Denver, Colorado. Through it, she advanced her yoga practice, made lifelong friends, and committed to practicing meditation as well.
Brittany’s teaching style today is one that is very reflective of her own yoga journey and continued devotion to the practice. She focuses strongly on alignment and fundamental aspects of the poses, attention to prana, and the connection of the mind’s focus/intention with the movement of the body. Brittany believes that the more a practitioner can tune in to sensation and breath in each pose, the more they can really be “in” the pose, and thereby benefit from it. One of Brittany’s favorite things about teaching is what she learns from her students — the journey of yoga and connection to others never ceases to amaze her.
Along with teaching yoga to adults and children in the Austin area, Brittany is a swim lesson instructor and an artist.
Cony Cameron | Teacher
Born and raised in Santiago, Chile, Cony moved to Texas in 2009. Soon after, she started to explore yoga on her own until she found Veronica's class. She began to search for different styles of yoga, from Ashtanga to Iyengar, to deepen her love for the practice. Along the way she found even more peace with her practice.
Yoga helped Cony to connect with her new surroundings and she soon started to feel the need to expand the knowledge not only in asana (poses) but also with the spiritual side of yoga. She felt the need to share this practice with her community and decided to do her 200 hour teacher training with Giaconda Parker.
She now seeks to improve and learn as much as possible and most important to spread love and acceptance to her students, to show that with time all our goals can be accomplished.

Melanie enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with her family and friends. Melanie knows the benefits of having a yoga practice.
“We spend most of our day hunched over computers and our phones. Yoga will help to counteract and balance those positions we put ourselves in, day in and day out. Whether you're a bona fide yogi or can barely touch your toes, yoga will have you on your way to a greater sense of wellbeing.”
