Brendon Abram

BrendonHi. My name is Brendon Abram and I am pleased to offer yoga classes in Brighton and Trenton. My primary goal as a yoga teacher is to help you establish and maintain your own personal yoga practice. While classes are a great way to learn yoga, with a little bit of knowledge and support you can have a meaningful and rewarding yoga experience anytime, anywhere.

This website is intended to provide you with the resources you need to support your personal practice.  It provides access to information you can use to help develop the physical part of your yoga. Recognizing that yoga is “Mind, Body and Spirit”, you will also find inspirational ideas and concepts for mental and spiritual growth. I would welcome, and will respond to, any comments you would like to make on any of the posts. You can also pose any questions you may have to me through the Contact page. By sharing our thoughts and ideas we can help each other grow through the study and practice of yoga. I very much look forward to hearing from you.


I have been practicing Yoga for over ten years. It has had such a profound effect on my life that I have decided to pursue teaching it as a second career. In February 2011, I completed a 200 hour registered yoga training program at Yandara Yoga Institute and have been teaching Yoga at various venues in the Trenton and Brighton region since then. I am Yoga Alliance Certified. I am also certified by the Trauma Centre in Boston to teach trauma informed yoga to survivors of PTSD and other emotional trauma. A veteran myself, I am privileged to teach Mindful Yoga in Trenton to veterans of Canadian Forces operations who are recovering from PTS. I am trained by the Veterans Yoga Project and have taught yoga to United States Military veterans with PTS. I am also a member of a joint Queens University/ Royal Military College of Canada study team which will undertake the first military sanctioned study (in Canada) on the effects that yoga may have on men and women recovering from exposure to operational trauma. I am certified to practice Thai Yoga Massage and have provided hundreds of massages to a regular client base in the Brighton and Trenton areas. Having recently completed the 8 week Jon Kabat-Zin Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program, I look forward to incorporating mindfulness into all of my endeavours.

Jenny Doucet

jenny -To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders. – Lieh Tzu

Jenny quickly realized the benefits of practicing yoga and was amazed at how she would go into a class tired and battling a headache and leave feeling energized. Her goal is to offer this same transformation to others by creating classes that are enriching for the mind, body and spirit.

Over the years she has focused primarily on practicing Hatha Yoga but has also practiced Kundalini Yoga, which gave her a deep appreciation for meditation and the use of sound to encourage healing and relaxation. In 2013 she completed her 200 hour Hatha Yoga Teaching Certification at PranaShanti Yoga Centre in Ottawa and continues to further her training through weekend workshops, master classes and self study.

A true believer that yoga is for everyone, she encourages beginners to try out a few classes and will create an inviting atmosphere for all who practice with her. Jenny has a strong desire to help her students, beginner to intermediate, achieve their personal wellness goals. She feels very fortunate to teach and share her passion for yoga and is thrilled to be part of this growing yoga community in Trenton.
