Howdy, I'm Bree! I’m a registered yoga teacher (200RYT, PRYT) specializing in gentle, restorative, and prenatal yoga. I'm the founder of Good Yoga, a body positive virtual yoga studio obsessed with providing accessible yoga to everyone who walks through our digital doors, regardless of age, race, sexuality, gender identity, fitness level, or body size. I have had a personal practice for 10 years on and off, but I fell deeply in love with yoga while recovering from PTSD stemming from childhood sexual abuse and infertility. I am so grateful for the delight that I have learned to take in my body since devoting myself to my practice, and I can't wait to show other people how to take delight in their bodies as well.
I’m Milissa, my friends call me Mil. I am a mother, a wife, a baker, and a jam maker. When I have time I like to do yoga whenever I can fit it in. I’ve been “morbidly” obese my entire life, and I’ve learned to love myself while also being open to positive changes (like being able to touch my toes)!

My name is Becca and I'm here to help you feel freer in your body. Using my expertise in the body, math/science, teaching, and self-love, I help you lovingly meet and discover the learned beliefs of yourself that secretly want you to stay trapped. Together, we will use holistic and pragmatical practices to love on and shift your beliefs so you can fully free yourself and your body.
Through our work together, you will learn how to use your body as a tool and a mechanism for self-understanding, self-acceptance, and self-love. You will deeply connect to your body and self and learn to build self-trust, -communication, and -respect. Create and develop exactly the kind of relationship you want with your body and yourself because you both deserve it.
