Brandan completed his RYT 200 certification in December of 2014 in the studies of Asana, Kriya, Pranayama, Meditation, and Yogic Philosophy. As a native of Lafayette, Brandan has spent the past 11 years providing services to all parts of Acadiana through a family owned business. Having the opportunity to meet many fellow Acadians, he fell in love with the community of Lafayette and the heritage and culture that make up this city and the people unique. Having practiced yoga for several years as a way to balance the physical and mental stress that comes with working in the construction industry, he began to recognize a calling to teach yoga as a way to share the balance of mind and body that practicing yoga, as well as, being a part of the yoga community has offered to him. Having always been an avid personal development enthusiast, Brandan is continuing his studies in the practice of yoga by attending group studies, creativity building workshops, emersion retreats, and certification programs. In his classes, Brandan incorporates simple mindfulness philosophies and positive encouragement in an accessible manner to all students. He passionately believes that yoga can provide individuals with a core foundation to explore and strengthen their life including their relationship to themselves and cultivating a healthier, more balanced relationship with others.
