“When I was diagnosed with my first relapse of multiple sclerosis in October 2015, I lost my balance and some of my strength in both physical and emotional terms. Having read about the scientifically proven benefits of meditation and yoga for overcoming the physical and psychological elements of multiple sclerosis, I was looking for a yoga and meditation teacher who had personal experience with chronic health conditions. I was so happy to find Brandee to begin this important new stage in my life and to work with her as part of a holistic approach to treating multiple sclerosis (that included medication, physiotherapy, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy). We began with a few private classes to get me started and I was eventually able to participate in a weekly group gentle yoga class that she leads at L’Esprit Réhabilitation.

Working with Brandee has been an integral component of my approach to fighting multiple sclerosis and achieving well-being over the last year. With her help, guidance, positive energy, and warmth, I have built a daily yoga and meditation practice. I now have stronger balance, core strength, and better flexibility than I did before the on-set of my disease. I have also sought to integrate mindfulness in my personal life and work and have developed a greater sense of compassion for myself and others. In many ways, I would say that I am healthier, physically and mentally, than I was before my diagnosis. Anyone who may feel “broken” in one way or another should consider working with Brandee. She will provide you with the support, tools, and practices that you need to put yourself back together. For my part, I hope to continue practicing with her for many years to come.”

I have been doing yoga with Brandee for many years. Of all the yoga teachers I have had I always feel the best after a session with Brandee. She always takes the time to know every person in her class, their issues or pains and gears classes to help their particular needs. I often walk into one of Brandee’s classes feeling overwhelmed, achy or simply annoyed but I inevitably walk out with an incredible calmness, determination to face any challenge and a serene feeling.

She shares inspiring words of wisdom before class, focuses on well being, has a terrific mix of challenging yoga poses, stretches and sequences that will make a body feel whole. And above all that watching her demonstrate poses is a feast for our eyes. It is a terrific motivator to see what a body could achieve with regular practice! Thank you Brandee!
