Brittney Poppe

200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Therapist

Moving from the Midwest to California, Brittney discovered many new experiences which would transform her worldview, but one has stood out amount the rest: Yoga. She found Yoga in 2011 and became certified here in San Diego in 2013. Yoga is part of her daily life. Her mission is holistic: building a student’s connection between their mind, body and breath.

“I am beyond excited and honored to be a part of the Catalyst family, and to be able to bring my passion to life here with all of you.”

Brittney’s sessions vary based on each individual person. Students can look forward to enriching their breath, consciousness, alignment, and flexibility as well as improving their physical and mental strength. She’s passionate about moving authentically and promoting collective awareness. Her vision is to help guide clients to a compatible lifestyle by optimizing health and wellness.

Together, as a team, we strive to set goals for your body to expand movement safely by integrating awareness into mobility exercises and dynamic breathing. The breath is the start of it all. Discovering mobility and breath potential keeps our body running optimally while staying injury free. We’ll explore various styles of movement including Yin, Restorative, Hatha, Vinyasa and backgrounds of active flexibility. Active flexibility is the perfect marriage between strength and flexibility and requires you to express control throughout a full range of motion.

“I dedicate my teachings to help improve your quality of a well-balanced life through awakening the body’s mobility and stream of consciousness.”

Brittney found a home in California when she found yoga, and she hopes you find your home here at Catalyst, creating a space where your body’s inner energy can shine outwards.

When Brittney is not seeing students, you can either find her upside down at San Diego Circus Center where she focuses on Hand Balancing, Trapeze, and Dance Movement, or wherever there’s a yoga mat. You may even find her outside doing Acro Yoga and acrobatics. In April of 2019, she’ll be traveling Costa Rica for a month to complete her 500 hour yoga teacher training. She can’t wait to learn more, and to share it with the Catalyst family.
