If you don’t already know her, I am so excited to introduce you to my friend Brea Johnson from Heart + Bones Yoga. Brea has been a yoga teacher for over 15 years and is also a certified Restorative Exercise teacher. She has the wisdom of someone who has been teaching for many many years and a friendliness that makes her teachings super accessible. 🙂

Brea feels that integrating functional movement is essential for a life long yoga practice for both you and your students and in this episode we’ll give you lots of ways to make your movement practice sustainable for the long term.

  • CrossFit and yoga? Can they coexist?

    Aahh… I love this woman. I am so glad I found you Brea, you speak all that I have been believing and never really had a foundation for. Other than my experience. 😉

    I really hope to one day be able to meet you and learn from you one on one.

    Thanks for that Podcast Interview!
