“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  ― Marianne Williamson

About your Facilitator:

A lifelong educator, E-RYT 500 and Tier 3 Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher, Brandy Berlin has a heart for authentic connection. As co-owner of Namaspa Yoga Community and Evoke Energy Yoga, Brandy leads lovingly fierce classes, workshops, trainings and retreats that invite all humans to break open their forbidden happiness and lead more empowered lives. Brandy believes together the teacher and the taught do the teaching, and her powerfully playful and often comically introspective offerings leave space for her students to lean in, grow, transform and heal. A grateful student of her primary teachers Baron Baptiste and Suzie Newcome, Brandy uses the Baptiste methodology to support teachers in purposefully and masterfully shaping the energy in their classrooms in ways that leave students feeling nourished, revitalized, and empowered. This training is also largely influenced by the work of Paul Grilley, Brene Brown, Marianne Williamson, Michael Singer - and her Mom, Becky Berlin. It is ultimately grounded in the learnin’ and lovin’ harvested from Brandy’s 20 years of being with people as a high school social studies teacher and requisite humorist. 


“When I graduated from my 200 Hour yoga teacher training, I was fired up and inspired to take yoga into the wider world as an offering of hope and possibility for others. Cuz people were hurtin. I was hurtin. I quietly suffered physically, emotionally and spiritually for a hell of a lot of years - and I just knew when I opened to Spirit and applied the Baptiste methodology to my teaching and life it worked. I wanted others to have a shot at the same course-altering transformation I had experienced. I’ve created DARE U to bring the cutting-edge work from the Baptiste Institute’s Level 1, 2 and 3 Trainings and the FIT to Lead Program to those who dare to put their feet to the fire - and are willing to burn. This training is the culmination of my studies and experiences, and I tender it in humble gratitude for the gifts I’ve been given. My constant prayer is, “Use me dear God so I might know the joy of being used by you - and heal me so I might of greatest service.” May we all grow, mend, love, laugh, and be at peace. Aho.”
