About Briana
My teaching style is student-centric and organic. I draw from a wide-ranging toolbox of techniques to find the approach that will work for you. What is most enjoyable and interesting for you usually points to the most efficient and effective path for learning, because your nervous system thrives and builds best when you feel open and engaged.

As a teacher, I draw on my professional experience as an actor and singer, my teaching background in myriad subjects (Feldenkrais, Music Together, general music, theatre, yoga, fitness, literature, etc.), and my eclectic training in acting, classical voice, musical theatre, various methods of body work, and healing.

I strive to create a working environment where students feel safe to take risks, learn to challenge themselves, and find increased joy and freedom in expression. Self-awareness/body
-awareness, relaxation, and nurturing of individuality are emphasized above all.

Though I have a long background in performing arts and performing arts education, my teaching philosophies and techniques draw primarily from my study of movement and mindfulness through disciplines such as yoga, and especially the Feldenkrais Method, "a remarkable approach to human movement, learning and change... based on sound principles of physics, neurology and physiology, and the conditions under which the nervous system learns best." (The Feldenkrais Institute, NY, NY, 2013).

Training/experience:

- Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement Teacher
- Feldenkrais Practitioner Training Program certification in process
- Bachelor of Music, Highest Honors, SUNY Binghamton
- Professional singing in the US and Europe
- Professional acting throughout the US, theater and film (member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA)
- 100+ hours of YA approved yoga teacher training
- Eclectic studies in voice and body work (Linklater, Sound Healing, various dance styles, Kinetic Awareness, Tai Chi, Beijing Opera techniques)
- Kids/family music teacher certified by Music Together (an amazing, international, research-based program)
- Teaching artist (opera, chorus, musical theater, acting/improv, mindfulness) at schools around NYC - Bronx High School for Law and Finanace, PS 129, Yorkville East MS, Baruch MS, Anderson MS, PS 3
- Former fitness instructor

Finding mastery in practices of music, acting, and mindfulness have core similarities - when you find your flow, it feels like flying. But we have to start from the ground up. The stronger the foundation, the higher you fly. Let's get started!

Notes on teaching locations:

- HOME STUDIO: For a number of reasons, I prefer to teach at my home studio whenever possible. I have two friendly cats - hope you aren't allergic!

- ONLINE: For some students, online lessons are very effective, but for others, it is imperative to meet in person. So if you would like to try online lessons, please message me first to discuss,

Peace,
Briana

She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

As an older person who never had ballet lesson, this could have been a very intimidating experience but Teresa was very patient and thoughtful about her instruction. She really wanted to be certain I understood the terms, technique and overall format of ballet. A great experience! I look forward to my next lesson!

About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

I have been working with Jess for almost a year now and I cannot recommend her enough. It's like having a therapist, a spiritual guide, a travel hacker, a personal organizer, financial planner and childhood friend all wrapped into one. She helped me negotiate a 20% raise at my company, helped me lower the cost of my credit card debt, I was able to travel internationally for so much less than I thought possible AND I am finally ACTIVELY following dream of becoming a singer-songwriter. If you want a lot out of your life but you just seem to not be doing anything different, or you don't know what to do to make it different then working with Jess is the best investment you can make. She is life changing.

About Ashlee
I'm a performer, choreographer, journalist, and certified yoga instructor. I hold a BFA in Dance and a Minor in Journalism from California State University, Long Beach where I graduated Cum Laude. In addition, I am a 200-RYT with Yoga Alliance after receiving my training through Long Beach School of Yoga under the direction of Ram Bhakt.

With dance, I have received training from professional artists Bernadette Alverio, Rebecca Lemme, Gracie Whyte, Laurel Jenkins, Keith Johnson, Lorin Johnson, Sophie Monat, John Pennington, Lisa Johnson, Alicia Head, and Rebecca Bryant.

Currently, I am a company member of Authentic: Grooves, and was formerly a company member of SURGE Dance Company. During my time at CSULB, I have performed in faculty works by Lorin Johnson, Rebecca Lemme, Rebecca Bryant, and student works by Jasmine Mosher and Tayl
or Worden.

I have attended the River North Dance Chicago 2016 Summer Intensive and BODYTRAFFIC's 2017 Concurrent Winter Workshop where I trained by and alongside company members under the workshop direction of Sara Bibik (RNDC) and Tina Finkelman-Berkett (BT). In 2016, I had the privilege of performing Rebecca Bryant’s ASKQUESTIONSLATER at the John F. Kennedy Center of Performing Arts for the American College Dance Association’s National Gala in Washington D.C.

For yoga, I teach a wide-range of yoga styles, with an emphasis on healing, somatic techniques, and Integral yoga principles. I have been practicing yoga for several years and teaching since 2017. Most of my classes consist of Gentle Flow practices to focus on finding space and stillness, providing the body an opportunity to unwind, heal, and restore. However, I am trained to teach Vinyasa Flow, Integral Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Iyengar Yoga. Currently I teach for Free Yoga on the Beach in Long Beach, CA.

My mission is to inspire students to find the stillness and breath in life, starting on the mat. Through a balance of flow and somatic technique, my classes will take you deeper in your practice. As a dancer and athlete, I understand the demands the body goes through daily, and firmly believe that yoga should reflect the opposite of your lifestyle. Implementing tactile adjustments and healing intentions, my classes will help you unwind, restore, and open up. I believe that through the steady practice of yoga, we can restore ourselves and bring zen to our lives in an already hectic world.

I have experience writing for the performance arts—specifically dance—entertainment stories, and media design. During my education, I was published in CSULB's Daily 49er university newspaper several times for the CSULB Department of Dance concerts. I actively write for the dance blog Spot LA run by Monica Reid where I report on the thriving LA dance scene.

I aspire to continue working in a performance company, write about dance, teach dance and yoga, travel, and continue my education to attain a M.F.A. in Dance.
