A touch of quiet intensity and a little bit of mystery.
Brooke is an open book and yet deeply interior. She is drawn towards people and experiences that offer time and space for depth of connection.
She grew up in Manly, Australia, spending her days mostly in the ocean.

Brooke is enraptured by beautiful language and believes there is great power in words, and deep healing in harnessing music and sensual movement to explore the inner art of coming Alive. Her classes are intentionally slow ~ honouring the need for time, space and deep listening to cultivate the most intimate taste of self and life.
Before her life in Yoga, she practiced as a Lawyer for 4.5 years. Although she loved the thrill of running her own cases and problem solving, her heart was dragging her down a different avenue.
A series of strong signals from her body to slow down, became the catalyst to reorient in a new direction. She calls this life compass ~> the Full Body Yes!
Brooke is deeply honoured to share the teachings of Yoga and Tantra across the globe leading workshops, international festival classes and facilitating retreats and teacher trainings. She is co-founder of Back2Roots Retreats - hosting transformative retreats in locations all around the world including Indonesia, Hawaii, France, UK, Spain and Turkey. When she's not teaching abroad, she teaches studio classes at BodyMindLife in Sydney, and is an ambassador for Lululemon Athletica.
THE FULL BODY YES
The Full Body Yes is a commitment to be All In, in every moment. It is to submerge in each unfolding instant, exactly as it is, with fuller than full passion and full Acceptance, whether we agree with the experience or not (Acceptance is very different from agreement!). It is a Tantric understanding that the experience of oneness with the soul ~ a concept which can seem so esoteric or out there ~ is actually practical, it is of the world…life embracing!
Often we think the intention of yoga is to bring us to some idealised state of bliss and joy.
The reason this approach is so powerful, is because it shatters the idea that we need to transcend or rise above or dissociate from the human experience. Instead, realisation of our profound wholeness , occurs within the paradigm of the very real and raw, and fluctuating human experience.
Fluctuating, as in Never perfect(!). The practice is intended to fluctuate us, not perfect us. The fluctuations are what grow us!
The Full Body Yes is a call to attention, to summon the totality of our awareness into the most intimate experience there is ~ to see, taste, touch, know, savour the Self in our full shades. It is to embrace the whole Buffet of what it means to be human ~ from pleasure to pain, darkness to dawn ~ and every tune and tone and note and frequency in between.
I believe in
wild and messy
not waiting until it's all figured out
revelling in the Awkward moments
mellow, slow, always
creating with love and presence
one. thing. at. a. time.
