Your instructor, Brigitte Brown
Brigitte was born and grew up in Germany. She later immigrated to Canada and first lived and studied in Fredericton, NB where she received her Bachelor of Arts, in Psychology from St. Thomas University.
After university, she moved to Moncton, NB, working mostly in administrative positions. It was during this time that Brigitte first started to practice and study the art and discipline of yoga and meditation. Her vision, early on, was to inspire and motivate others to embrace a healthy life style.
In 2000, she decided to follow her dream and become a Fitness Instructor.
She received her certification from the local YMCA, Moncton, NB in 2002.
In 2003, she completed the requirements to become a certified Hatha Yoga Teacher, through the Toronto based ‘Frameworks Yoga Teacher Training’.
During 2004, Brigitte focused her attention on Pilates and received her Pilates Instructor’s Certificate, teaching “Method Pilates”, from the renowned ‘Physical Mind Institute’ – Body Harmonics, Toronto, ON.
In 2007, she received the “Woman of Distinction” Award for her outstanding contribution to the well-being of women in the community, from the YWCA Moncton.
In 2013, she continued her education with a dynamic Naturopathic Therapy called "Bowen", this Neuromuscular-Myofascial Tissue Therapy can be used to address a wide range of health conditions. Bowen Therapy is a very gentle yet highly effective way to relief pain, by assisting and speeding up the body's natural, innate healing process. The treatment consists of small but purposeful moves on the body, which in turn elicit profound and often immediate results.
In 2016, Brigitte received her diploma from the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia to practice as a registered, certified Bowen Therapist.
