Brianna Goodman is a dancer, yoga instructor, and lover of learning. Born and raised in Annapolis, Maryland, she began her dance training with Ballet Theatre of Maryland. In 2011, she moved to New York City to attend the Joffrey Ballet School, where she trained under the direction of Michael Blake and Robert Ray. She has performed the works of choreographers such as Christopher Huggins, Dwight Rhoden, Guillermo Blinker, Marijke Eliasberg, and Jana Hicks. At the Perri Institute for Mind and Body, Brianna was certified as a yoga instructor through the Mind Body Dancer® 300 Yoga Pedagogy Course. As a teacher and practitioner of yoga, Brianna is endlessly fascinated by the connections that we make between our practice on the mat, and the manner in which we live our lives outside of the studio. In addition to her dancing and teaching careers, Brianna is currently enrolled as a student at Fordham University, where she studies English and Creative Writing.
All yoga classes taught by TaraMarie Perri and Mind Body Dancer® teachers are rooted in a safe, alignment-based, breath-focused, mindful-flow style and are appropriate for anybody interested in cultivating sustainable pathways of the body and mind. Classes are thoughtful and detailed, educational and expressive, as they flowingly pair energetic imagery and anatomical themes. New practitioners create stable foundations, experienced yogis refine and re-connect, and those in between explore and experiment within the range of your body and mind's remarkable capacity.
