Choosing Courage Over Comfort
Brash Yoga is an online gathering space that offers a wide range of opportunities for people to connect, learn, and have fun. From yoga classes to book clubs, clothing swaps, cocktail hours and dance parties, we're committed to building strong cross-communities by fostering friendships.
Our styles of yoga are not primarily focused toward physical fitness and exercise, although you will get that wonderful "side-effect". We promote physical and mental health by leaning on asana practices that center "innercise" to build nervous system resilience.
Teachers who offer their classes through Brash specialize in gentle, slow, subtle, breath-centric yoga asana that prepares the body for meditation and pranayama.
We strive to help ourselves and others regulate our nervous system so we are better equipped to deal with life's complexities, like when we need to say what needs to be said, and do the hard and courageous things. In other words, this way of using yoga to tend to our nervous system keeps us centered so we can be brash when we need to be.
Our goal is to create brave spaces where folks feel welcomed, safe and heard. We are advocates of voice and choice and feel it's our responsibility to speak up as we continue to study and examine the practices of yoga to ensure inclusivity, accessibility and justice.

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 our bodies wanted — from each other — so we could hang out more. Cuz really, as grown-ass adults, don't YOU want more ways to hang out 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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
