Brette took her first yoga class over fifteen years ago and her transformation began. Through her daily practice of yoga and meditation she developed a deep appreciation for how movement, combined with mindfulness, can create distinct changes in physical, emotional, and behavioral patterns. Her leadership on the Lineage Project board reflects her desire to promote peace, understanding, and non-violence in New York City. As Board Chair, she brings decades of business experience, deep connections in the yoga community, and an infectious laugh.
