About your Facilitators

A lifelong educator and E-RYT 500, Brandy Berlin has a heart for authentic connection. As co-owner of Namaspa Yoga Community and co-founder 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 teacher Suzie Newcome, Brandy supports 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 - and her Mom, Becky Berlin. It is ultimately grounded in the learnin’ and lovin’ harvested from Brandy’s 20 years 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 Namaspa 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 for 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.”

After graduating from Namaspa's 200 hour training in 2018, she started teaching in John Day, Oregon. The result was a thriving yoga community that would eventually merge with Namaspa, bridging Central and Eastern Oregon.

She's passionate about giving yoga teachers tools to create sustainability in their lives while freeing up in their classes.

 

"I spent much of my life being pretty damn serious — serious about community organizing, serious about politics, serious about what my life should look like, and wanting to be taken seriously. Yoga has given me an outlet to explore something else; it's brought me back to a place of playfulness I abandoned in grade school. I get to move my body and be as goofy as I like. Or as serious as I like. It varies.

 

I believe play is necessary if we're going to keep our humanity. We can only be serious for so long before we rip each other to shreds. Providing opportunities for adults to move, feel, and play helps to remind us all that we're in this together.

 

When I show up with a sense of playfulness, I invite others to do the same. And just as we need more backbends to counteract hunching over our devices all the time, we need opportunities to play in order to lighten the heavy ass load most of us are carrying around."
