Winter Brown, Ph.D., C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, RPYT

I found yoga in 2002 and have been addicted since. It keeps me strong, helps me stay mindful, and encourages me to stay supple physically, mentally, and emotionally. After a move to Durham, NC for graduate school my yoga practice flourished in its newfound home, Blue Point Yoga, and I was encouraged to move into teaching. I took the plunge and haven’t regretted the decision since. My practice deepened, meditation became an ongoing pursuit, and I regularly interact with caring, vibrant, and dynamic individuals who grow on their yoga mats. I feel fortunate to have strong yogi mentors and friends across the country, and I regularly draw on them for inspiration and support.

I hold a Ph.D. in political theory from Duke University. I find that motherhood provides its own practice for staying centered and present, especially when home practice occurs among the legs and limbs of young dogs and children. I enjoy impromptu dance sessions with my kiddos, singing silly songs, laughing with my husband, wrestling with texts, and generally exploring the notion of moderation in life’s charming excesses.
