After discovering the joy of yoga, Brenda relied on her practice to keep her balanced during years of being the “Budget Goddess” in international non-profit finance, believing that life is always far more enjoyable when in motion. With a strong desire to share the many gifts of yoga with others, she took the plunge in 2011 and became a full-time yoga teacher. She completed her 200 hour Vinyasa focused training at JOURNEYoga in Arlington, VA, and continued her “journey” as a yoga student, completing 85 hours of Prenatal yoga teacher training at Charm City Yoga in Baltimore, MD and a kids yoga program through YoKid. Her passion for life and yoga comes through in her engaging, challenging, and encouraging teaching style. She believes yoga helps the individual to safely embrace the body, mind, and spirit’s constantly varying needs. When not on the mat, Brenda is often found on her road bike, globetrotting, or eating copious amounts of Thai and Vietnamese food. Connect with Brenda at www.presentmotionyoga.com.
