17 years of dance with a focus on ballet had affected Bridgets body. It was because of that that she took her first yoga class in college. Although she remembers enjoying the practice she was beginning her career in advertising and never found time to get back on her mat.
The corporate world sucked Bridget in and for several years she sat at a desk wondering if there was more out there. The stress of the job drove Bridget back to her yoga practice where she discover Power Yoga and fell in love. She has been practicing this style of yoga and began teaching the Baptiste Method after her 200 hour RYT with South Hills Power Yoga 10 years ago. She is registered through Yoga Alliance and has shared her love of yoga with every one from moms to be to teens to Olympic athletes.
Bridget has practiced yoga through three of her four pregnancies and truly believes yoga is for everybody. Her teaching is focused on uniting the breath with the body and her classes emphasize safety and alignment in postures and encourage a compassionate approach to yoga asana. She believes in the value of good humor and in the lightness of laughter in challenging moments.
Bridget says her favorite part of teaching is when “Students have that ahha moment where they surrender to the pose and discover something empowering within themselves”. She is excited to see this with the community at Day Yoga.
