Bridget began practicing yoga regularly in 2009 as a path to greater strength, balance, flexibility, and serenity. She tried many styles of yoga but found a deep connection to Iyengar instruction with its emphasis on awareness, proper alignment, and breath.Bridget completed her 500-hour RYT at Downtown Yoga in Pleasanton in 2016, received her Ropes Teacher Training certification from Yoga Garden in San Francisco in 2017, and became a certified Yoga for Healthy Aging teacher in 2018. She is an E-RYT 200 and RYT 500 through Yoga Alliance. Bridget credits the transformative power of yoga and meditation for deepening and enriching her pursuit of balance emotionally, physically, and spiritually. She brings all of this into her experience on and off the mat as a seeker, student, teacher, wife, and mother of four sons. She hopes to share the light and joy of yoga in a welcoming and supportive environment in her classes. Bridget is co-owner of Castro Valley Yoga.
