Brooke has a piercing and intuitive demeanour. She is an open book and yet deeply interior, nourished by relationships that offer the space for true depth of connection.
She grew up in Sydney, Australia spending plenty of time wandering barefoot in nature and in the surf. Brooke rode horses for much of her youth, and it is her connection to nature and its creatures that most informs her way of being, and her wild intrinsic trust in the greater flow.
Brooke's teachings are deeply rooted in the alchemy of Tantra and the potency of the work of the ancient mystics ~ using poetry to offer a glimpse into expanded states and inner experiences otherwise indescribable.
She 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 state of connection to self and life.
Before her life in Yoga, Brooke practiced as a lawyer for 4.5 years. Whilst her brain loved the daily dunking in details, and her heart palpated at the thrill of a high paced environment ~ yoga quickly became her antidote to high levels of stress and strong signals from her body to slowww down.
As her practice deepened, yoga opened the doorway to a new form of intelligence ~ the language of the body. For Brooke, the ability to truly listen and be guided less by the details of the mind and more from a place of attunement and listening to hum of the heart, was life changing.
She calls this life compass, the Full Body Yes.
This life path has increasingly demanded that she bring to light the unseen aspects of herself, embracing the challenges with as much grace as the sweeter moments. It has taught her that the more she feels a sense of peace on the inside, the more her reality shifts around her to reflect the miraculous gift of living, breathing, and being.
Brooke is deeply honoured to share the teachings of yoga across the globe leading workshops, international festival classes and facilitating retreats. She is co-founder of Back2Roots Retreats - hosting transformative retreats in locations such as Indonesia, Hawaii, France, London and Turkey. When she's not teaching abroad, she teaches studio classes at BodyMindLife in Sydney, and is an ambassador of Lululemon Athletica, Nakula Organic Coconut Products and Food Matters TV.
I believe in
wild and messy, not waiting until it's all figured out
simmering in the awkward moments
creating with love and presence
one. thing. at. a. time.
