Britton has taught me the true meaning of what it means to be a yogi - leading by example. Always ready to share a warm smile, kind word and helping hand. She has reminded me that yoga is 1st and foremost a healing practice for the mind body and spirit, and I thank her each and every day for all that she has done, is doing and will do for my yoga practice and teaching for years to come.

Britton has been an instrumental pivotal step in my developing as a yoga teacher.She has this very acute intuitive understanding of who she is supporting and the most efficient way to communicate to that person which makes the growth inevitable fun and truly awesome. I adored being in her presence and learning from her. I called it "a blessing" to have crossed her path at the time I did between my yoga teacher training and my becoming the teacher I wanted to become.
