Brandon Joe Rutten is a Registered Thai Therapist, national board certified Massage Therapist, 200 hr Yoga Teacher, and has been practicing yoga for nearly 20 years. It is his mission to welcome others to grow within their own practice toward a deeper sense of mindfulness that benefit the different states of being. Brandon has always been inspired by the movement of the body and the energies of the earth, and that love was rekindled after being introduced to Thai Massage in 2008. He loves the compassion, trust, support, communication, and connections that come along with its practice. His class techniques are fun and accessible for people of all ages and abilities. Brandon shows he is grateful to all of his teachers and students who remind him that he is and always will be both.
