In an effort to support both yoga teachers, and yoga students alike, we’ve rushed to create a system that would allow teachers to keep working, and students to continue getting their practice, that is needed now more than ever!
Because we know that teachers aren’t the only ones who’s financial situation has been massively impacted at this time, we’re offering all our online classes on a “Pay-What-You-Can” basis. We invite you to join even if all you can pay is $0 and a little karma at the moment, and we deeply appreciate the support of those who can give a little!
In these crazy times, we need to pull together, be as grounded as possible for ourselves and our loved ones, and be part of the healing this world needs, by becoming as healthy and healed as we ourselves can possibly be!
We thank you for your support, and we are doing our very best to support your physical, mental, & emotional health needs in return.
See you in class, and Namaste!
Because we actually lose money in fees, from donations under $2.00, if you are unable to pay more than $2.00 for this class, please skip this step and check your email for your class access at this time. Thank you!
I thought that Brandy’s online class (The 108) was awesome. She is very descriptive in explaining each posture and honestly, I felt that I could hear much better in the comfort of my own home, than I’ve ever been able to hear on the PA system in crowded studio.
I have always been impressed with Brandy’s ability to notice the smallest details from each student, and wondered if she would be as aware online, and to be honest, I felt she was! I don’t know how she does it in the studio or online, but she has an incredible ability notice and give her students exactly what they need in either situation.

Continuing a yoga practice in the midst of covid19 is no easy task. Stay home stay safe to me is stay home do lots of yoga . Brandy is very precise with her guidance and obviously loves what she does. In the studio and online she is a very knowledgeable instructor and her cues are easy to follow for all, whether a beginner or advanced practitioner. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for holding space for us during this trying time. I highly recommend given the opportunity to practice with her as often as you can. She has amazing gifts and a beautiful way of sharing them.
We are so blessed to have this site! Every single teacher on here is professional and amazingly great at helping us. Thank you thank you- vital during these crazy times.
First Class instruction and her commitment to Excellence will inspire you to be your Best.
I have been practicing yoga for 9 years, and Brandy has been my main teacher for nearly 5 years. Brandy’s clear instruction, knowledge, and passion for yoga has helped my practice and teaching grow in ways I never knew were possible. If you want to change your life, she is the teacher for you. I’m happy to be a part of the Ivy Standard Yoga team, each teacher on board has their own unique effectiveness, and we all are constantly learning more about yoga so that we can teach more effectively, and Brandy leads the way with her passion. If you have been practicing Bikram Yoga but want to try something new, I highly recommend the Integrated Hatha yoga class and the 108 class, both have helped me heal my body and I learn something new each time I practice.

Brandy’s advanced class is phenomenal! She not only is very good in leading her students to practice safely she also believes that all of her students are special and that with patience and dedication to practice one can get into those unfamiliar and uncomfortable poses. She is an amazing teacher and she pays attention to her every student and encourages us to try. Today’s class marked my 3rd advanced class with Brandy, and I can say that I’m learning a lot about my body and learning a lot from her. She is so compassionate and gentle! Love her!!
The Quintessential Maestra of yoga. Her teaching is as elegant and effortless as she makes the most advanced poses look! It’s an experience I just cannot get enough of. I work hard, I learn to work with more focus, I find there are things she can get me to do I never dreamed of doing and she always celebrates every milestone made, no matter how small, she notices everything and my practice just gets better under her expert tutelage. So grateful for every class I get with this world class instructor. Thank you!
Brandy is an amazing teacher! She really knows what she’s talking about and she really cares about each student’s individual progress. She pushes you in exactly the right ways to help you advance your own practice. I love her integrated class; it’s helped me a lot with my own practice and flexibility.

First of all, I am beyond grateful that Brandy has established this website and provided those of us that practice yoga an opportunity for live instruction. Being isolated has been hard (as it is for everyone) but I have found that being able to participate in these zoom classes is like I am right there in the same room. I have taken 26/2 with Brandy, her integrated class, and also advanced. Her integrated class offers a more postures than the standard 26/2 series and instruction is clear and concise. After a few classes, I could feel the difference. I love this class. I’ve also taken her advanced class once a week consistently for the past 3 months. Again, steadily I am progressing. I believe that I am improving in this class and see the same improvement I would in 2 months of regular 26/2 instruction. Finally, I admit I have purchased some online “instruction classes” like “headstands guaranteed”, etc. but there is nothing in those videos that compares to Brandys instruction. The tips and “tricks” she gives us have benefited me tremendously. Again, she is right there with us students the instruction is priceless! Love this wonderful soul and her passion for what she does so well!
Brandy is one of the most present and engaging teachers that I’ve been blessed to take classes from. Her knowledge is incredible and she is willing to share it generously so you can improve your practice and strengthen your mindset. I walk away a better yogi and more resilient human after every single class. Thanks Brandy!
I love Brandy’s classes! Her dedication to the practice is profound and she shares her love and knowledge with all her students. She pushes me in just the right way to keep me feeling successful but also humble.
I am thrilled to be able to take her classes online! Sign up for Brandy’s next class…you won’t regret it. 🙂

Brandy is the best. Pre-COVID I took her 26/2 classes and loved them. She has a gift of being able to push people specifically to *their* limits. She gives subjective directions to each individual student as well as the objective directions that come with a 26/2 practice. She is also very good at being able to notice tiny places where her students can improve and encourages to make small (or big) changes that impact our practice greatly. If you need to be pushed, take a class from Brandy. You will not regret it.

Incredibly great full to get work with such a renowned a credited person in the Yoga world. Brandy does an great job to make sure you are noticed and corrections are given to your specific needs and level. You will never feel lost or out of place taking one of her classes.
I took a 26/2 class with Brandy and it was AMAZING. I hadn’t had her class in years, and even via the web I felt like she literally saw everything. She gave me incredible corrections (which I am always grateful for and don’t always get these days as a studio owner), and my body felt just as good after a room temperature class in my living room as it would have after a sweaty class in a hot studio. I am so grateful that she is making herself available online! What a treat to take class with this talented teacher. Thanks, Brandy!!!
First time I took Brandy’s class, I was blown away by how amazing she is and also the clear and precise instructions she provided. I felt the encouragement and corrections which made me work hard and try again. Thank you for your classes. I learned so much in just one session.
Out of every teacher I have had, Brandy keeps me the most accountable in my practise, and gives me feedback which is the most intuitive for my body to interpret. She finds the perfect balance between inspiring me, and challenging me to evolve my practise which is exactly what I need. One of the true gifts of isolation is being able to take her class all the way from Australia. I can’t wait for the next one!
Big love xx

Brandy is an incredible instructor! She has the observation skills of a Hawk. Brandy sees every little detail. Brandy’s corrections are tailored to each students unique body.
Thank you for class❤️
Brandy is the kind of teacher that I adore! Her precision is as impressive as her practice and her method is complete like anything else I’ve seen so far. I had 2 major breakthroughs today (the kind that took 5 me years) and it was only my 2nd class with her. I’m definitely in awe! Beyond a yoga teacher, she’s a true leader who will push you safely beyond your boundaries. I still can’t believe what happened today. Thank you Brandy <3

Brandy is one of the few teachers I’ve never taken a “bad” or “off” class from. Sure, I’ve cried and wanted to scream at her in class before…But I love how she embodies, as she teachers other instructors, to not be the teacher students like, but be the teacher students need. I know when I come to Brandy’s class, I will never be lazy or make excuses. She doesn’t allow room for that. Even through online streaming, her presence, connection and nurturing tough love pierce through the screen. Not only an expert at seeing bodies, she feels them. Knowing I can fully trust Brandy and let go of my own thoughts, doubts, or need for control is a uniquely magical experience on the my mat. Brandy’s dedication, intuition and experience make her classes a treat and opportunity for profound self observation, reflection, and growth. Thank you thank you thank you for setting up this online studio and teaching at this time when we all need it most . So much love and gratitude to you <3 See you soon!
3rd class with Brandy and I’m addicted ! My firts review is still to be approved so here it is again : Brandy is the kind of teacher that I adore! Her precision is as impressive as her practice and her method is complete like anything else I’ve seen so far. I had 2 major breakthroughs today (the kind that took 5 me years) and it was only my 2nd class with her. I’m definitely in awe! Beyond a yoga teacher, she’s a true leader who will push you safely beyond your boundaries. I still can’t believe what happened today. Thank you Brandy <3
I love Brandy’s classes ! Especially the Integrated Hatha, which is my 5.30 am Sydney Australia time.
If I could, I wouldn’t want to miss it.
She makes me work hard in every class and always encourages me to go beyond what I think I could do, especially at that hour in the morning. I let my body explore itself under her guidance and there have so many breakthroughs which are great and surprising to me. I really enjoy her class. High recommended. Thank you so much !
One silver lining of the pandemic is the opportunity to take a zoom class with Brandy. I’m so grateful to be able to take her integrated hatha class, which would have required taking a plane, train, or automobile prior to the the lockdown as she’s in Utah and I’m in California. Brandy is precise, detail-oriented and absolutely perfect. She makes you work harder and even looking at the tiny computer screen she can see if you need to move your shoulder forward or kick your leg up. Thank you for offering these classes. Will keep on taking them as long as they’re offered online 🙏🏻💛.

I’m a yoga instructor and have been practicing for a long time. Just one online class with Brandy improved my practice measurably. I highly recommend.
Paulette Bonetti –
If you know, you know ; )
Wow, as always, such clear instruction. Truly offers yoga as a practice you do with your body, not as a goal to achieve with your body. Alternatives for less flexible bodies like mine were encouraging. I love Brandy’s calm, direct, no big deal style of instruction. And her demonstrations are helpful as well as inspiring. Xoxo
Jordan Dorn –
I just took my first 108 class with Brandy and thoroughly enjoyed it! She makes advanced FUN! I don’t know how she is able to keep keen online, in person and also demonstrate, but she makes it look effortless. She was quite warm and welcoming, gave instruction and correction with conviction and encouragement. She somehow notices tiny subtleties through my webcam, which that made me laugh – how does she do that?!. I will certainly be joining in again and again!
Sue Nguyen –
Never have enough of Brandy, that’s why I am here again and again and again…
We never met in person but in just one class, I felt like she knew me from inside out for my whole life. Her intuition and cues are uniquely designed for me. She remembers the corrections she gave me in the previous class and follows up with my progress with encouragement and further corrections. She presses the right buttons that wakes me up and pushes me out of my comfort zone safely then cheers me up and keeps me humbled. She never fails to awe me for her incredibly precise corrections even on the parts that are hidden on the camera view.
With her 100% present and skillful observation, you are constantly framed.
I wonder how she can manage giving corrections for everybody that needs correction or delivering words of acknowledgment and encouragement in every pose and finishes the class in a timely manner.
I highly recommend you to take Brandy’s class. You immediately get her special care and guidance right where you are.
I love you and appreciate you Brandy❤️🙏
Sarah W. –
Brandy is incredible. I took the advanced class for the first time and was very challenged. Learned immensely and will continue to incorporate her routines with my practice. She pays attention to details and makes it really fun. Definitely no lazy moments. Thank you for the opportunity. See you again. Namaste!
Dominique Well –
First off, Thank you Brandy for the personal attention. Even through Zoom you are able to tune into my individual needs. Thank you for helping correct Chronic alignment issues and pushing me in my strengths. For those who have not taken Brandys 108+, This is a strength class. It’s an interesting hybrid of the Gosh 84 and Ashtanga. I haven’t Studied Ashtanga, so it’s taken me a few classes to even understand the asanas. Be patient and prepared to work hard.
Bynay Blasberg –
I have trained with all the best, champions, “senior teachers”, and those that have been engaged with yoga practice for more than half their lives. In my 20 years experience, I have never had as much fun, fine tune attention to detail, and wonderful motivating attitude the entire class. I am thoroughly impressed with this woman, her teaching, and her practice. If you haven’t had a chance to practice with her or take her class, DO IT. YOU will NOT regret it. 💎❤️❤️❤️💎
Tara Johnson –
Brandy’s 108 class is dope. She’s quick and specific. She somehow notices everyone in the room and online with on point help. Each time I’ve taken the class she has gotten me into a posture I’ve never done and I’m online! Pretty cool. Plus she’s got a down to earth sense of humor which provides for a good time while you trying to get into things that are physically demanding. It’s got a good balance while all the 84 and then some added Ashtanga to help build more strength and add a lot of fun if that’s the kinda fun you like to have 😉
Sue Nguyen –
Just took Bandy Integrated Hatha this morning and I knew how much I missed her classes, her guidances, corrections and loving care.
Will definitely come back again and again.
Love you and admire you Brandy.
Shawna Parker –
I love that I can join in for live instruction, even though I am miles away. Brandy gives solid instructions that are easy to follow. Her wisdom and words are just what my mind (and heart) need to hear. Magical and healing. I
am grateful. I am hoping that eventually on demand will be available.
