Brier stumbled into yoga at a corporate class offered while working in the commercial insurance industry, and it stopped him in his tracks. He quickly began practicing daily in group classes, and a whole new way of living opened up for him. From the beginning, Brier has been eager to share the gifts of yoga with family, friends, and anyone wanting to learn because of the profound impact it’s had on his own life. He completed both his 200-hour and 300-hour teacher training qualifications with Glenmore Yoga and Wellness Center in Richmond, VA. Aside from practicing and teaching yoga, Brier enjoys surfing, training jiujitsu, cycling, reading, and being with family.

Your favorite asana and Why?
Revolved Side Angle Posture / Parivritta Parsvakonasana. This deep standing twist challenges balance, breath and self-control which requires extreme concentration. The progression is rewarding, it feels amazing, and it’s sure to turn heads. You are as youthful as your spine is flexible. Do the twist.
