Brantley was raised in Central Virginia and graduated from James Madison University with a B.A. in Sociology. In 2006, she moved to Jackson and embarked on a decade-long career in office management. In 2017, Brantley spent three months in Central America where she earned her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training certification from It’s Yoga Nicaragua.
Inspired to share her experience of incorporating yoga into her addiction recovery program, Brantley developed a 12 step yoga flow called “Zenity Now”. She finds that a holistic approach to recovery, nurturing the mind, body and spirit, greatly aids in relapse prevention. Her aim is to create a welcoming space for students to explore the complementary spiritual practices of yoga and the 12 steps of recovery.
About her Zenity Now Class
The meditative yoga practice called “Zenity Now” blends yoga and the 12 steps of recovery. Yoga experience and/or recovery are not requirements. Everyone is welcome! We invite students to explore a holistic approach to addiction recovery through breath, movement and reflection on the 12 steps of recovery.
