Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

Strong enough to hold my space, supportive and trustworthy. You never complains and do your job with excellence. You allow me to express myself fully. When my life gets crazy, you create the space for me to find peace within. When I am in a stressful situation, you create the space for me to release the tension. When I need to rejuvenate, you create the comfortable supportive space for me to fully rest and relax. Thank you Manduka, you are my best friend and best partner ever!

What started as a way to maintain peak physical condition for surfing, yoga soon became an integral part of his daily routine. Brett has since travelled around the world studying a variety of yoga styles including a 200 hour training under the guidance of Kevin Durkin. Brett also continues to be mentored by his good friend Oliver Reinsch.

Residing in Kochi Japan, Brett teaches physical vinyasa and classes for senior citizens. Brett is also responsible for a variety of community service activities through Tosa Yoga which include, tree planting, river and beach cleans, youth at risk education and miscellaneous fund raising.
