Introduction: We’re providing training & resources for physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. We use meditative and yogic techniques to develop mindfulness, focus, awareness, and optimal health in all levels of the body. Classes are taught in our private studio, your home or business, or at your special event. My wife and I feel called to help those who are ready to start walking the path of personal transformation. With the birth of our first child we’re regularly reminded about how valuable these practices are for our personal life, and know they can benefit others too. Healing and evolution are what we do, and we'd love to help you out! ~ Experienced teachers with over 750 hours of yoga & meditation training, degrees in psychology, and numerous years of teaching hundreds of students in classes, workshops, and private sessions all around the world. ~ A lifetime of studying with embodied teachers and leading scientists, including the Dalai Lama, Richard Davidson, Matthieu Ricard, Jon Kabat Zinn, Mingyur Rinpoche, Daniel Goleman, Desmond Tutu, and more. If you're interested in working with us then please schedule a free 15 minute consultation through InnovativeYogis.com to get the process started. We'll get to know each other, ensure that it's a good match, and create a lesson plan for your first session, based on your needs. You can learn more about pricing, sessions, and what we do as Innovative Yogis by checking out our website. We hope we’ll talk soon. Until then, may the force be with you!

Private Yoga Instruction

Brett of Innovative Yogi is a joy to work with. I engaged him for corporates event and my interactions with him were excellent from start to finish! Not only was he extremely professional and responsive in the pre-planning, his instruction was very well received by the attendees of the class. We received great feedback from all who interacted with him and we look forward to partnering with him on many future group classes for our corporate clients.

Meditation Instruction

Brett was incredibly responsive to my messages and flexible when it came to scheduling. I was in search of someone to lead a [virtual] corporate wellness session, with specific attention to mindfulness and meditation. Brett was the perfect fit! He helped our group (of mixed experience levels) get acquainted with the concepts. Brett shared about his personal history with meditation which encouraged others to share and ask questions. His open and candid responses made our group feel comfortable. Would highly recommend working with Brett and already look forward to our next session with Innovative Yogis!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    All sessions with us are offered in the spirit of dana, a Sanskrit/Pali word meaning giving or gift. The practice of generosity takes us beyond separate selfhood and constitutes a basic ethos at the heart of community. So, a dana economy is a gift economy, or an economy rooted in generosity, which means we ask you to receive the gift of our talents and reciprocate with whatever gift feels right in your heart. Not sure what to give? May we suggest $75 – $125 for a private session. We don’t want to enter into relationship with you as the providers of a service for a consumer. We want to enter into a wholehearted human relationship with you, as co-producers and collaborators in the transformation of ourselves and our world. To support this intention, rather than offering our work as a service to be bought, we ask for contributions to make this work possible. While we wish we could give everything for free, please know that this work as Innovative Yogis is our livelihood. The basic principle of the Gift Economy is, “give what you can, take what you need”.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We see you as a whole person and work together from that perspective. We'll help you develop physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. Each level of our being is interconnected and influence the others. We aim to teach you how to be healthy on all levels, which means we'll take time to get to know you and teach you practices and exercises to address each level.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    We've spent a lifetime developing the skills we use to cultivate health, employing a holistic approach that recognizes the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels of the body. Here is Brett's resume so you can get a sense of the education we've been through: Shambhava Yoga Teacher Training 2013 – 2014 • Holistic 200 hour teacher training in an ashram environment covering asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, philosophy, satsang and kirtan. • Extra focus on teaching beginners, and developing classes from scratch to meet the needs of the students. Allard Method Training Boulder, Colorado 2015 – Present • Advanced training on Neuro Coordinated Bridging, breathing, anatomy, movement, promoting longevity, enhancing function, and eliminating pain; operating on the philosophy that “What we can sense we can change.

This is a unique system combining yoga, martial arts, chiropractic, breathe work, Feldenkrais, comprehensive anatomy, and Vipassana meditation. • Completed over 450 hours of personal study and practice with the creator of the training, Norman Allard. University of Colorado Denver BA 2010 – 2014 • Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a focus on neuroscience, body language, and consciousness. • Achievements: Dean’s list, Psi Chi Honors, and received the most prestigious scholarship in the Psychology department, the Samuel Priest Rose award. Mind and Life Institute 1998 – Present • MLI bridges science and contemplative traditions through dialogues between top scientists and the Dalai Lama, resulting in new research, publications, and practical applications. • Attended a dozen conferences with presentations by the Dalai Lama and Nobel prize winning scientists on topics like: Destructive Emotions; Transformations of Mind, Brain and Emotion; Craving, Desire and Addiction; and The Nature of Matter, The Nature of Life. • Attended the MLI Summer Research Institute multiple times, where we sat in meditation several hours a day, participated in workshops, and listened to presentations by pioneering scientists and master meditation teachers. Study of Buddhism & Meditation 1989 – Present • Thanks to my family’s privilege, I have been visiting monasteries, meeting Rinpoches, attending meditation retreats, sharing living space with monks, developing relationships with yogis, and hearing teachings from masters all of my life. • These exposures included teachings and retreats with the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Mingyur Rinpoche, Roshi Joan Halifax, Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Khandro Rinpoche, Tim Olmstead, Sharon Salzberg, Mattieu Ricard, Thupten Jinpa, Daniel Goleman, Richie Davidson, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Alan Wallace, and Nawang Khechog, amongst others.
