Yogini. Changemaker. Lover of nature. Dancer. Artist. Activist. Out-of-the-box thinker. Heart-follower. Dreamer. Believer.
Bre grew up in Central Oregon, attended college and graduate school in San Diego, CA, and moved back to Bend in 2012 when her heart and her roots called her back to this wondrous, mountainous-high-desert-of-a-place. Unexpected miracles and serendipitous events welcomed her home and led to her founding and opening Sol Alchemy – a yoga studio and community-based healing and spiritual center on the Eastside of Bend – in March 2013.
In ways that are much more clear to her now than before, she can see that she has been a lifelong spiritual explorer and seeker. Her first spiritual teachers growing up was her mom and her uncanny ability to know unseen things about the seasons or the next day’s weather patterns based on what birds were at our backyard feeders and where they were migrating from; her great grandmother, “the gypsy”; and Mama Earth Herself.
Bre has also dedicated her heart and life to Shakti Rising because it is an organization committed not only to learning and talking about the kinds of change needed in the world, but actively practicing, doing it and birthing new paradigms to create change within. The world needs the Feminine. The world needs Shakti Rising.Watch the Interview
