Brandi Howell started out as a SoCal girl from Dana Point, but turned out to be more of an international wanderer.

She completed her Bachelor’s Degree in French from the University of California at Santa Barbara, at which point she discovered her true francophile nature.   She lived in France during her year abroad.  Bitten by the travel bug, she continued to roam through Australia, Morocco, England, Spain, Italy, Corsica, Mexico…

Somewhere along her path, she found yoga.  No matter where she was in the world, she felt grounded on her yoga mat.  Being an athletic individual, she could challenge her body, pushing it to its edge, but she could also quiet her mind and find inner peace.

Guided by many wonderful teachers, she learned how to transmit her knowledge of yoga to others.  She obtained her 200 Hour Teacher Training certificate through the YogaWorks program, which pulls from the Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar and Viniyoga traditions, while focusing on intelligent sequencing and safe alignment.  She has her 200Hr RYT certification from Yoga Alliance.

Brandi is excited to share her passion and energy with others and looks forward to learning from everyone she meets along the way.

She currently teaches at various locations around Santa Monica and Los Angeles, organizes yoga/adventure vacations and continues to cultivate presence and strength through her daily Ashtanga practice.
