Brooke Hamblet, a senior-level Baptiste Yoga instructor, and yoga educator for more than 20 years, shares her inspirational teaching and impassioned love of community with students around the world. Brooke's instruction, while dynamic and physically challenging, also provides a relatable and educational focus on sustainability, biomechanics, meditation, communication, and leadership. Brooke's students benefit from a newfound appreciation of their own potential, and leave class inspired to create possibility elsewhere in their lives.
Many journeys and teachers have contributed to Brooke's evolution, but none as powerfully as her experiences with Baron Baptiste. After over a decade of study and training, Brooke now travels worldwide to facilitate programs and teacher trainings. Additionally, Brooke leads international workshops, programs and teacher trainings independently.
Indigo Yoga, founded as a solo enterprise in 2005, has grown from humble beginnings to support a staff of over 50 teachers and employees, and two locations, with more planned for the future. Brooke is also the Founder and Director of the Brooke Hamblet Teacher Training School, a Yoga Alliance-recognized 500-hour teacher certification program.
When not at home parenting and running businesses, Brooke presents at yoga conferences, including the Yoga Journal Conference in Estes Park, CO, the YogaGames, and the Nordic Yoga Conference in Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden. In addition to her on-hand work at Indigo Yoga, Brooke travels extensively to instruct, train, coach, and consult with teachers, students, and studio owners worldwide. She has become an impassioned business owner, and enjoys being an active participant of Entrepreneur's Organization as well.
Brooke holds multiple yoga certifications at the 500-hour level. She considers anatomy, alignment, cadaver dissection, and subtle body energetics as her specialty topics, with whole-health discipline (food, sleep, community, mindfulness) as her latest endeavor, and has trained extensively with Ray Long, MD, Tias and Surya Little. Through years of education and daily interaction with hundreds of teachers and students, integrated with her various other fields of expertise, Brooke is developing cutting-edge curriculum on how the nervous, immune, sympathetic, and endocrine systems can be influenced and healed through the empowering practice of Baptiste Yoga and whole health disciplines. This new methodology will emphasize the impact of communication and touch on stress, and encourage a reevaluation of the assumptions and beliefs about pain experience.
Brooke is 44 years old and lives with her two boys, Freddy and Gray, in Fort Worth, Texas.
