About The Teacher
Brenda Stone has energetically embraced yoga since 1999 and continues to be a life long learner of yoga. She is a dreamer and an adventure seeker. Brenda began her journey into yoga with a spirit of exploration because of neck injuries and found that yoga significantly helped alleviate the pain and the need for medication. With this newfound awareness, she began to share her knowledge of yoga in 2008 when she started teaching at the local YMCA and began her yoga teacher training. Not knowing that her destiny would move her in the direction of becoming a studio owner, she continued her training and enhanced her yoga knowledge with 200 RYT certifications from both YogaFit Training Systems and the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga. Brenda’s personal focus and that of the studio is on alignment for optimum health and safety. Most recently, Brenda received certification in Ayurveda which infuses the knowledge of food with the Dosha body type. She freely shares this information and awareness with her students. It is her desire to increase understanding regarding the benefits of nutrition while cultivating healthy eating habits and life style changes. Her understanding of Chakra balancing complements her Ayurvedic message and is interwoven throughout her teaching practices. In 2011 she had the opportunity to buy an existing yoga studio in Bismarck, North Dakota. She immersed herself in the details of creating a sustainable yoga studio with offerings appropriate for all levels of students and renamed the studio, “Yoga for You.” Her inspiration for the studio name is intended to promote and market the single most important focus of yoga-a practice for Every-Body.
