Still daydreaming of this sunset and magical practice at @bhavbrigade's pop_up on Thursday. Thanks for capturing my blurry fingers, George Vu. #bhavonboard #seaofyogis

Thank you so much to @jess.g.johnson, @bhavbrigade and @nauticusnorfolk for an amazing night!! Who would've that that 500 people would do yoga on a battleship, raise over $3000 for the Elizabeth River Project, and have a blast doing it?! Awesome experience, and thank you again! #bhavonboard #thefiancewhorefusestogetaninstagram #bringthebhav

Sunset yoga on the Battleship #bhavbrigade #bhavonboard #yoga

Thanks to @empresslo for capturing this moment during #bhavonboard last night. In this setting and overlooking the quiet last moments of sunset over the waterways of Norfolk, I found a moment to just be. Something I hadn't found in a while. Thank you for letting that show. #bhavbrigade #vanasanayoga #meditate #findingmomentsofpeace

Tonight we gathered on the deck of a ship to move and breathe together. This. Is. Norfolk. ๐Ÿ“ท Drew Richard and his awesome drone. ..

This was the scene about an hour before our class began tonight. The sea of yogis flowed in until we were at nearly 500 beautiful souls on board! More than $3000 raised for @elizabethriverproject and many more photos to come! #bringthebhav #bhavonboard #yogaiseverywhere @jess.g.johnson

Tonight with 500 other beings, I practiced yoga on a battleship. Tonight's intention was simple: shed. Shed the resistance that is holding me back. Shed the energy that is no longer serving me. Tonight was a celebration of beginnings and ending. It was a reminder to welcome and let go. Life is continual. Endings are beginnings. Beginnings are endings. In the flow of it all, we exist. โ€ข

It was only fitting that the final (East Coast) Bhav class by Jess was taught using her voice and her laughter instead of a microphone. This community is going to miss you...I think the nearly 500 people who showed up tonight proved that point ๐Ÿ’• #bhavonboard #bhavbrigade #thisisyoga

I am OVER the ๐ŸŒ™ to announce that @lululemon is officially joining the @BhavBrigade TT family!! Our friends at lulu๐Ÿ‹ Virginia Beach are so passionate about the Bhav community we've built (you might remember them as one of our sponsors of #BhavOnBoard - Pop-up Yoga on the USS Wisconsin for the Elizabeth River Project ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐ŸŒ…โœจโค๏ธ) that they've decided to fund a Bhav Scholarship Fund for our upcoming teacher training in the spirit of community engagement and yoga as a tool for social change! Isn't that AWESOME?!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜ŠLike us, they believe in accessibility and I am SO happy to have them on board (look out for more collaborations coming your way in the future!). What this means for those ready to embark on the transformative journey of yoga teacher training is that, after completing your application with us, each of you will have the opportunity to apply for funds to help offset the cost of becoming a yoga alliance-certified teacher! My own journey to becoming a yoga teacher completely changed my life, taught me to reach far beyond ceilings I thought were real (but it turns out aren't), gave me the tools to more fully bring my light out into the world (which ultimately became our beloved @BhavBrigade) & completely saved my life in medical school--I'm a better person, friend and doctor because of it. The scholarship application will be up on our website in the next couple of days, but in the meantime feel free to email us at bhavbrigade@gmail.com with any questions (or reach out to me personally) and make sure to submit your TT app if you haven't already by Sept 1st!

I can't wait to share my love for the process with you!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿ“ธby @efoozephoto

We've dropped a lot of love bombs on this community over the last month starting with the announcement of #BhavOnBoard & our bi-coastal expansion to the SF Bay Area, followed by our 2 new teachers @sacredlifepractices & @dianekassir heading up new branches here in Portsmouth & Virginia Beach & finally the launch of our new website over the weekend!
We're still blissed out from all the magic that's been happening these past few weeks, but we have ONE last trick up our sleeve and boy are we excited about this one... What do you get when you put together a physician, a psychologist with a masters in education, a handful of career yoga teachers, a PhD in communication with a specialty in gender studies, & a marketing executive with 3 decades of teaching experience, thousands of hours of training & a thriving non-profit yoga platform between them?

THE MOST BADASS YOGA TEACHER TRAINING EVER, THAT'S WHAT! Coming Fall 2017!
One that's comprehensive and holistic and flexible and is driven by the Bhav Brigade values of creativity, collaboration and community. We're offering this for you all--our movers & shakers, our visionaries & advocates, this Brigade of people who want to make their communities a better place and believe in the power of yoga to do so. This will be a Yoga Alliance-certified training built from the framework of senior teacher Diane Malaspina's Sadhana Yoga School training program infused with the soul & flair of Bhav Brigade and co-led by the Bhav teachers.
We believe in accessibility. This training will be affordable with payment plans available to fit YOUR lifestyle, full military scholarships available for dependents of those serving our country, and the creation of our very own Bhav Brigade scholarship fund to help offset costs for those who need it most.
We also realize that 200 hours is a HUGE commitment and is not to be taken lightly, so we've broken down our training into 10 weekend modules allowing you to pick and choose the ones you're interested in OR to complete the training for the full Yoga Alliance certification!

Interested?
Registration opens this summer, email bhavbrigade@gmail.com to be the first to know!

Our deepest, most heartfelt profound thank you to each and every one of the nearly 500 yogis who came out from across Hampton Roads, all over Virginia & all over the COUNTRY (Wisconsin, Indiana, NC - and even Puerto Rico!! ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ท) on Thursday for #BhavOnBoard, to our sponsors @lululemon & @nauticusnorfolk for manifesting our dream into the most badass magical, bhav-y reality, to our talented photographers @efoozephoto, @vudaloo, @streeterpeter & @drewricharddrone, to the hands and feet and hearts on the ground at the @elizabethriverproject and the important work they do in environmental conservation that makes this city home, to all of the @BhavBrigade teachers & extended family @thesterndanielle, @megankresse, @razyreah, @empresslo, @van_asana & @jeyzelyoga for assisting the class (& for saving our ass when the mic malfunctioned ๐Ÿ™ˆ), and above all else to this Bhav Brigade community for coming together like you always do, raising THREE THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED AND TWO DOLLARS (omg) for the Elizabeth River Project and sending @jess.g.johnson off to California with a farewell like NONE OTHER.

We will hold this in our hearts forever.

Ready for my closeup! Thank you to @bhavbrigade and these amazing photographers for capturing me at my most pure, smiling, laughing, and making a general fool of myself!

Hundreds of yogis at peace on the warship โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ฟ๐Ÿ•‰โš“๏ธ another shot from the amazing photographers at thursday's #bhavonboard #bhavbrigade #battleshipyoga #thisisyoga @bhavbrigade

A few things give me anxiety about going to yoga classes. My brain says "You are too fat, you don't have the right clothes, and you can't do all the poses" or "I don't want to go alone, be in the front of the class, or have my picture taken". When I started going to classes through @bhavbrigade I was attempting to add something to my workouts at the gym I was missing. I thought I just needed some stretching to help with the soreness I felt after lifting heavy stuff. I had no idea all this fear and anxiety would come up. For real, it felt like middle school gym class all over again. But I have found this open and loving community that helps me keep my fears at bay. I still have those thoughts and I did on Thursday surrounded by 500 people, but I remembered what I've heard in class. "This is my yoga practice. I'm here to work on myself and not worry about anyone else. Bc that's what they are doing as well." This is good for me. I wish I could talk more friends and family into going with me, but I'm ok going by myself once I'm there, on my mat, and focused. Thanks to George Vu for this amazing photo and thanks to Bhav for being exactly what I needed. That's me in the black, by the way! โคโ˜ฎ๏ธ #bhavbrigade #bhavonboard #757yoga #justbreathe #namaste @vudaloo Nice work, thanks again!! #yog #yogaforeveryone #puppypose #motivation #inspiration #workinprogress #keeponkeepinon #getthefatoutgethealthy #weightloss #weightlossjourney #positivevibes #positivemind #positivity #iamenough #practicemakesperfect
