Amazing teacher!

Brigitte is so amazing that I haven't forgotten her even though I haven't studied with her in over 10 years. I went to Oaxaca years ago for a yoga retreat at Solstice with Brigitte. The experience was magical and stayed with me. Lately I've been debating going through teacher training and Brigitte keeps popping into my head as a possible instructor even though I've been studying in New York for 18 years and have had many wonderful teachers. I have 3 all time favorite teachers and she is one of them. She's caring, conscientious, kind, gracious, and extremely knowledgable. She also has a great sense of humor. Her classes were challenging, but always felt healing. Take a class from her if you can!

My first, and so far the best, Yoga Teacher

I was lucky enough to experience Yoga for the first time and start my practice in the hands of Brigitte, a knowledgable, strong but gentle teacher who surrounds her teachings with a magnificent enviroment in which to practice it and with other teachers who complement and enhance her practice and those of her students.

There is a warmth and strength coming from Brigitte which made me feel very special in her presence. She has that no nonsense approach to life which empowered me to feel into my own depth and to do and be more than I could have imagined. There is nothing else like the experience offered at her retreats.

I first came to Solstice and Brigitte by chance many years ago.
My good friend Danny Spethmann, of Champagne Resources, had invited me to join her at the incredible Playa Zipolite. Danny had discovered the magic of La Costa Chica in the 80's while travelling with her Portuguese lover.


The night I arrived was like any night in Paradise and as we journeyed from the airport Danny asked me if I had any interest in yoga. "Yes!" I said, having only weeks before picked-up the Eric Schiffmann / Ali McGraw videotape. "Great!" she said, "because we're staying at a yoga retreat."
I awoke the next morning to the first of many "pinch me I'm dreaming" moments and then I met Brigitte. Strong, soft, Dutch. 7 or 8 languages and a great sense of humour. Brigitte. Who is this force?
Her class was full of innovative props and fellow yoginis absorbing everything they could glean from their beloved Brigitteji.
The workout was intense yet we were hardly moving! As Brigitte gently guided my body into proper alignment I came to know the depth of asana. The ideas of awareness and non-attachment rooted in me in that very first class. The pathway to self-knowledge illuminated, I traverse it still.
See you, guruji, in San Agustinillo!

Brigitte knows what she wants and knows how to get it.

She helped me to open my wings

Deciding to do the teacher training with Brigitte was one of the best decisions I made. It was such a wonderful experience all in all and I learned so much of alignment yoga and I got to know the BackMitra that saved my and many others backs. If you are into alignment, doing correct and safe yoga for the body than she is your best bet!

Love Solstice Yoga!

I've been to Brigitte's classes and workshops many times over a long period, I find her very experienced and thorough and includes asana, meditation and prana yama. Love coming down to the Oaxaca coast!

Real peace

In 2010 I was lucky enough to have Brigitte for a six week teacher training course in Zipolite. Aside from the daily yoga every morning we meditated for an hour. We also did pranayama. I had never imagined that one could actually find peace but I after the forth week I started to become pleasantly detached. By the time I got back to Toronto I was, as the saying goes, floating on a cloud. The combination of meditation, pranayama, and yoga is miraculous and Brigitte is adept at all three. There is more too as these techniques open a door to a truly spiritual dimension that we don't experience in our modern society. Anyway, thanks Brigitte and the various teachers who helped me experience this.
