Tell us about yourself
Yoga Life was founded on March 27, 2021, over tacos, margaritas, and conversation shared among friends at a taco shop in the Art District of Los Angeles, California. Brittney, who spent over four years in supervisory/operative level management for the retail clothing and accessory industry before becoming an entertainment and employment law attorney, said the creation of a yoga lifestyle brand is in line with her broader goal of introducing yoga to the African American community. A former competitive gymnast and track and cheerleading star, Brittney has extensive athletic cross-training and experience teaching yoga and bringing that practice into her daily life. My love for yoga motivates me to do what I do each day.
