Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist, Sound Healer, and Musician
Brooke Smokelin is an experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT), IKYTA certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist, Sound Healer, and Musician. For over 18 years she has studied with teachers in the Kundalini, Sivananda, Ashtanga, and Kriya Yoga traditions, as well as the American Sanskrit Institute. Through her various studies and an ever-blooming inspiration and fascination with the yogic chakra system, “Chakra Yoga” has become the cornerstone of her practice and her teachings. Chakra Yoga is a form of ‘Applied Yoga’, aka Yoga Therapy, in that we learn and apply specific therapeutic yogic tools of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), mantra (repetitive sounds), and meditations to specific issues and imbalances in our lives and, through regular practice, bring the body-mind-spirit into better health and harmonization. For years Brooke has developed and refined her Chakra Yoga as a creative and experiential medium to inform and ignite others with a knowledge of and techniques to embody their “full-spectrum” selves.
Brooke has worked with doctors and leaders in the Integrative Mental Health field to develop “The Embodiment Program”, a mind-body protocol specifically for anxiety, Pervasive Developmental Disorder Spectrum, ADHD, and PTSD.
Brooke offers classes and workshops, private and semi-private sessions, retreats, teacher and practitioner training programs (Yoga CEUs available) in yoga and chakra education, yoga therapy techniques, energy activation and chakra balancing, as well as various vibrational healing/sound therapy modalities.
Brooke is also a musician or “nada yogini”, and has been a practitioner of various forms of Sound Therapy for over 15 years. She works with the instruments of voice, percussion, guitar, tuning forks, and quartz crystal bowls and the aspects of rhythm, vibration, tone, and deep listening to activate a powerful and healing “music” from the harmonization of body, mind, and spirit. She offers private sound healing sessions as well as group sound healing experiences- sound baths and kirtans– and musical medicine making ceremonies.
