Brittany Payne, a West Virginia native, stumbled into her first yoga class completely unplanned.  On a sheer whim, she decided to walk into a community yoga class that was being offered in her hometown.  After her first encounter with yoga, Brittany was instantly hooked and yoga has played a major part of her life every since. 

Brittany received her 200 hour Yoga Teacher training from Vinyasa Yoga School in Rishikesh, India.
