    So, I am a RYT-500 whose personal practice hit a roadblock. I felt like I just couldn't find the right balance between my physical and spiritual practice (my spiritual practice is very solid). Quite by 'accident', I came across Yogi Brian's website (and I really don't believe in accidents!). I read all about his practice and I read the reviews. I sent an email and was responded to promptly with a good time to call. After speaking with Brian, I knew I needed to sign up for a private session. I signed up for two hours (I live 1.5 hours away). I just left my session and can I say, this was the BEST, most productive 2 hours EVER! Brian is extremely knowledgable, his instructions are crystal clear and he works with you at your own personal level. What really impressed me is that he had put together, ON PAPER, a specific 2 hour session for me after hearing from me what I needed that he gave to me when I left. My challenges were in arm balances and I had been struggling with some of the asanas for MONTHS. Although I know that asanas are a small part of YOGA, that was what I needed to work on. I not only landed the poses I was looking for, I landed a couple I had never done before. That definitely put the spark back into the physical part of the practice that has been missing for me. I have already signed up for my next session! If you are a seasoned practitioner or someone who is just starting, I can't recommend Brian enough...even if you live farther away, it is most definitely worth the ride. ~Namaste

    I have had the pleasure to meet Brian few years back when I was looking to start Yoga in Norwalk and had his classes and got to see the human side of this extraordinary man. It’s a rare opportunity in the area we live in to come into contact with someone like Brian. His great respect for yoga, for the people that attend classes and the actual yoga studio surrounding itself, is unmatched. Because of his knowledge of eastern philosophy, his presence alone is peaceful but yet disciplined. Brian is one of the most unique, genuine, loving and dedicated yoga practitioners I’ve met. He is one of those rare people you meet in life that you never forget and I know that people will be taken on an unforgettable yoga journey like none other. Thank you and Namaste! Mariella

    The life of Pre-Med student is vigorous. My tenacious dream has always and will be to become the first M.D. in my family no matter the cost. With school on the side, I work a part-time job to save for my further education. The stress relievers I have in my life are working out, music, and reading for fun. One of those is the hardest to accomplish. I used to like working out in a gym, having your body work for you is one of the greatest feelings. Unfortunately, the gym I have attended for years became hostile and a judgmental environment. Everyone was trying to outdo one another. I knew this is not what I wanted to do as a part of my relaxation to try and compete with men/women next to me. I grew sick of it every time I went. One day in my Therapy Counseling Class, my professor brought up the importance of yoga and meditation for clients and yourself. I was astonished. I have heard of yoga before, but never really knew its purpose and how deep it could affect somebody. This thought lingered with me for some time until this Summer. I decided enough was enough. I wanted a new workout routine and most importantly new journey to go on. What I found was Yogi Brian. Yogi Brian has taught me the value of adding peaceful meditation to each and every day. His relaxation sessions are incredible and after every one I feel the most refreshed I have felt in years. After a class of yoga and meditation I feel that I can take on the world! I still remember my first class with Yogi Brian. He introduced me to the class and we got started. We got to a section in the class involving a headstand and all I could think was "Man, this is tough. I don't know if I can do this." Yogi Brian then approached me during this exercise. What I learned was Yogi Brian is the most selfless, attentive trainer and teacher I have ever had. He helped me with every step in the first class and has not stopped in my tenth class. I can now say I can do a perfect headstand, and more thanks to him. Yogi Brian just doesn't look at me, but looks after all of his students like family and wants to make sure they are having a successful journey in Dharma Yoga. I still remember when Yogi Brian pulled me aside one day in a training session to discuss my history and what I want out of yoga. I told him my past and my dreams and he has done nothing but try to help me achieve them by helping me achieve a healthy conscious and subconscious through yoga. I try to attend classes twice a week. Yogi Brian's classes are what help me get through my week, because they are what I look most forward to. His classes have helped me build a stronger body that was unattainable with just lifting weights and using machines at the gym. His classes have also taught me valuable importance of balance and posture, things that are very important, but never really looked at. Yogi Brian has never stopped believing in me that I can do my best. I truly believe that all students should at least try yoga once in their college careers. It has done absolute wonders on my mind, body, and soul. I used to be very hard on myself, until I started doing yoga and found a deeper inner peace that I could not find anywhere else. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity Yogi Brain has granted me and I hope that more students will follow the path of yoga/meditation for healthier lives and careers. Namaste.

    Yogi Brian changed my life 2 yrs ago. He has helped me through menerie's disease with active vertigo. I was able to get off most of my medicines and I can do inversions with vertigo. He helped me figure out my triggers. I am able to do poses I never thought I could do. He has also helped me eat healthier and I was able to lose 20lbs. I don't know where I would be today without him.
