Urban Lotus Project
Brittney Huttner -
Board Treasurer & ULP Teacher
I began doing yoga in high school. My best friend’s dad taught yoga in Midtown so we would go during lunch or after school sometimes. At first I did it because it significantly reduced my back pain but as I got older, I noticed I kept finding yoga when I was faced with emotional challenges.
After I completed by first 100 hours of YTT, I thought I would never teach, it just seemed too intimidating but I knew I would be a lifelong student because teacher trainings are some of the hardest, but most rewarding work I’ve ever done. Towards the end of my 200 hours, Hannah taught a weekend workshop on teaching trauma-informed yoga. As she spoke about the work she was doing with the local youth, a light bulb went off and I felt drawn to contribute to the work of ULP if I could.
When I'm not in service to organizations like ULP, hopefully I’m traveling, second to yoga it’s been the most fulfilling thing in my life. If I’m home, I hope I’m enjoying nature with friends and my Australian Shepherd, Gypsy.
