Welcome to Mission Beach Yoga! We invite you for an Unlimited All Day Drop In yoga.
My own yoga journey began 15 years ago, by chance on a surf trip in Costa Rica, I tried a class on the beach. Having an athletic competitive background in boxing & dancing I went in full force. I was hooked. I was amazed at how yoga changed my mind & spirit as much as it did my body! My whole life I had been looking for something, growing up on a sailboat in Central America with my free spirited parents we where always in search of something , different culture, new place, an adventure. Yoga was exactly what I had been looking for. It has taught me to slow down & taste the moment. Thru our practice we develop an intimate relationship with body, mind , & spirit. It can be whatever you want or need it to be at that moment. My goal is to encourage & guide my students to find their own connection with their practice on & off their mat. By nurturing ourselves with breath movement & meditation we are better equipped to have patience in our daily lives.
My yoga career began back in 2014 while I was in college and searching for a workout routine that I wouldn't get bored of. It started with Bikram but as soon as I moved to San Diego and discovered vinyasa in 2015 I was hooked. It started strictly as a physical practice but turned into so much more when I saw how going to class helped change my perspective and deal with situations in my daily life. To this day I love how the practice challenges you both physically and mentally and I love being able to watch myself grow as a student and now a teacher. I'm so happy that I have found something I'm so passionate about and I hope to share that passion with everyone who chooses to join me on their mat!
San Diego native Brittany Griffiths first encountered yoga while in college. It was specifically during a life changing study abroad experience in India back in 2011, when her yoga journey truly began. It was in India where she realized that her relationship with yoga extended far beyond Asana, the physical practice. Brittany began to recognize a total shift in her thinking, completely changing her way of life. In 2014 Brittany traveled back to India and completed a 200 hour residential teacher training course at Rishikesh Yog Peeth Ashram, located in the foothills of the Himalaya. Following her graduation, Brittany continued backpacking throughout South East Asia, learning, teaching and cultivating her practice along the way. Since returning to the states in 2015, she has continued to teach a variety of classes including Hatha, Vinyasa and Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga. Her classes are designed not only to strengthen, but to open, expand and relax both the body/mind.
