After graduating from college with her BFA in photography, Brenna Geehan moved to Chicago and worked in the commercial photography industry. In 1998, she began studying with several Yoga Masters and in 2002 she met her teacher, Yogarupa Rod Stryker of ParaYoga. Since then Brenna has become one of only a few Senior ParaYoga Level 2 Certified ERYTs.

Brenna loves to get real with people because she insists on getting real with herself everyday. Brenna believes that we are all here to not only get through life but also to find out how to thrive. Every person's thriving will look different and Brenna encourages students of Yoga and Meditation to go deeper and deeper, and deeper still ~ until they are satisfied.

In every class, workshop, training, or retreat, one walks away with richer tools to help themselves experience more joy and spaciousness, less fear and tension, and to get intimate with their life purpose. Her classes are a masterful alchemy of clear alignment cues for the body and breath that draws each student to a remembrance of their Sri ­their brightest, fiery heart and soul.

Moving to San Francisco, CA in 2009, Brenna was invited by master and luminary teacher, Jean Mazzei, to co-direct their own teacher training program, Sri Yoga. Brenna and Jean of Sri Yoga have trained hundreds of teachers since then and continue to offer these transformational trainings and retreats in California and around the US.

Currently, Brenna teaches weekly and monthly classes in San Francisco, as well as Sri Yoga retreats in trainings.

Practice with Brenna in person at Yoga Tree in San Francisco and online at Yoga Vibes.


Influences

Rod Stryker/ parayoga.com

When I was just 25 years old in 2002, I decided to take Rod Stryker’s ParaYoga teacher training with no idea of who he was. It is with deep reverence that I get to call him my teacher. Since meeting him, I have awakened to the path of yoga and meditation that has only brought me more energy and awareness, less fear and a deeper connection to my authentic self. Rod, you Rule!

At a pivotal moment, Jean Mazzei, Director of Sri Yoga, Mold Breaker, shined light on my ability to be more than just a yoga teacher. I had the capacity to be a teacher of life by being willing to share my own experiences as a way to connect and encourage others to break out of their own molds and grow from life challenges. I am forever honored to be able to share the seat of the teacher with such a master of life!  Jean, I love you Big Time!
