Briana De Falco | Yoga Instructor | Barre Instructor | Hot 8 Yoga
Briana De Falco hails from New York City but currently resides in Santa Monica, California, where she teaches yoga barre and hot yoga at Hot 8 Yoga in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. Briana's fascination with the body and movement began at a young age, while training at the prestigious School of American Ballet. Feeling the pressure of such a competitive atmosphere, she turned to yoga to supplement her dance training and found an inner peace she wasn't expecting. She was hooked. Briana achieved her dream of becoming a professional ballerina, but after dancing with some of the best ballet and contemporary dance companies in the country, she found herself with multiple injuries. She moved to Los Angeles in 2012 and committed herself to learning everything she could about the body, injury prevention and yoga.
PRE WORKOUT RITUAL:
Briana completed 200 hours of hot yoga training along with 60 hours of yoga barre training, and she teaches both regularly at Hot 8 Yoga. She also continues to take ballet classes and enjoys traveling to new places and immersing herself in different cultures. She believes that living with passion can make you unstoppable and that there's nothing more powerful and thrilling than being in the moment and just going for it! She is honored and humbled by the power of yoga and is dedicated to sharing her passion with others.
Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated is so important.
Coffee! I love a good iced latte.
My style can best be described as simple swag. I love the simplicity of basics, but it's always fun to spice it up with a pop of color or a statement piece. My favorite style is mixing trends from the East and West Coast, because each style is so different. Most importantly, I always try to look put-together and clean because when you look good, you feel good!
IN MY PAST LIFE:
I was a DJ! Music is such an important part of my life, and I think being a DJ would be the coolest job in the world.
