Choosing Courage Over Comfort
Brash, based in John Day, Oregon, offers a wide range of opportunities for people to connect, learn, and have fun. From in-studio, outdoor, and online classes, to book clubs, potlucks, cocktail hours, clothing swaps, and dance parties, we're committed to fostering friendship and building a strong community.
Our goal is to create a space where everyone feels welcomed and safe. We're not shy about speaking up against injustice and critically examining the practices of yoga and wellness to ensure inclusivity.
At Brash, we believe that yoga is not just about physical exercise, but also about building mental and emotional resilience. That's why we specialize in subtle, "chill" styles that help individuals regulate and balance their bodies, minds, and emotions. This makes them better equipped to handle life's hard things and find meaning in them.
Out & About
The Brash Bunch
We are fierce friends — like the Super Friends from the Hall of Justice — badass buddies who stay by your side when situations get sticky. We selfishly-unselfishly wanted a place where we could take the kind of classes we wanted to take — from each other — so we could hang out more. Cuz really, as grown-ass adults, don't YOU just wanna hang out more with your friends?
I love Brandy's Yin classes. She leads us deeply into all our little nooks and crannies. I love the positive energy you bring to the class and your authentic down to earth personality. Your passion for yin and yoga in general comes shinning through and is infectious. Your calming voice is very relaxing and meditative plus your funny side makes it real. I slept so well after Yin. My hip joints and my mind felt so good. Thank you!
Quite literally the best class I've ever taken. After class I felt relaxed and exhilarated; this too shall pass was incredibly resonating, and I feel ready to take on some stuff that I've been really pushing away. I genuinely can't thank Brandy enough for releasing some underlying anxiety and providing some much-needed healing and courage.
I took Ashley's recorded Vin/Yin this morning and I was super impressed with her teaching. Very relatable, natural, fun, specific and clear queuing, and very accessible. I love it! Thank you!
Justina provides clear instruction and options for modifications along with the perfect mix of encouragement and quiet. She creates a great atmosphere --perfect for the hump day evening. I love the interesting mix of stretching, meditation, strength, ease and ease. I'm consistently amazed at just how great I feel after her class. Highly recommend.
Justina’s yin class was SOOOO GOOD. I had pretty rough cramps by class time, and everything we did felt incredible. A deep and throaty “YESSSSS” escaped my mouth when she called dragonfly and frog, and as class ended I was thinking, “Why don’t I do yin ALL THE TIME??” It was truly wonderful. Thank you!
Ashley is a very welcoming yoga teacher! She takes the time to teach you and explain how each position helps you. I feel very comfortable starting yoga with Ashley! I am very new to it; she never makes me feel inadequate or like a failure. Thanks Ashley for everything you do for me!
