I am now officially a 500 Hr RYT with Yoga Alliance, after completing both my 200 Hr and 300 Hr certifications. Huge thanks to Yoga and Ayurvedic Center.
I have also been invited to participate in a Wellness Immersion through Down Under School of Yoga and life Alive Cafe in April. Stay tuned for more.
Currently teaching Voice & Movement at Dean College, Intro to Acting at Heidelberg University, and yoga at Thoreau Club. I'm also in rehearsals for a production of Chicago at Stonehill College as the choreographer.
This last semester I was privileged and thrilled to teach two individual sections of Voice and Speech at Dean College. I have been asked to teach two sections next semester of Voice and Movement. Can't wait to support these young adults and help them realize their potential. :)
In addition, I will also be choreographing a production of Chicago for Stonehill College in Easton, MA this spring. Stay tuned for updates...

In the yoga world, I'm now teaching 3 classes a week at Xhale Massage. Two Candlelight Restorative classes, and a brand new class I collaborated/designed with the studio called Yoga Foundations! In this class, I blend yoga and several somatic techniques (Alexander, Erika Batdorf, Linklater, Rodenburg, FitzMaurice) to help students become more self-aware physically, and create an anatomically safe foundation for yoga (and for day to day living).
It was quite a busy 2020!
I am now officially teaching Yoga. I am pleased and excited to announce that I have joined Xhale Massage in Stow, MA. Specializing in Restorative, Vinyasa, and Yoga for Artists/Dancers (what I have dubbed Artist's Asana). My debut class last night, Candelight Restorative, was completely full! Socially distanced/safe completely full, that is. ; )
I have also completed my certifications in Ayurvedic Living, Chair Yoga, and soon to begin Certification in Yin!
In other performance news, I now have 25 books selling on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes, with 6 more in production.
I am looking forward to seeing where this crazy pandemic journey takes me. Wishing everyone a much happier, safer, full of joy and good things 2021!

"Announcing Monday's reading-THE NOTHING THAT IS SOMETHING BY J. JOSEPH COX
July 27 at 7:00PM
At St. Anne’s Hospital, patients dangle from metal hooks in a purgatorial meat locker somewhere between the living and the dead since one brain-dead patient miraculously recovered, and Dr. Adilene Reynolds finds her life crumbling around her. The brain and the heart collide in this quest to discover what it means to be alive and the communal soul that links us together.
Free tickets can be reserved at www.palmbeachdramaworks.org or by calling (561) 514-4042 ext. 2."

House of Bears 6: Besieged (just finished working on House of Bears 5: Lovers and Friends), and teaming up again with Lana Sky (author of The Ellie Gray Chronicles, a series that I narrated and we have received rave reviews on) for a new series called Beautiful Monsters! Not only that, but I get to do dual narration with my good friend and former castmate Nathan Morgan! So now we begin work on the audiobooks, Crescendo and Refrain. Don't forget to check out the Ellie Gray Chronicles, as well as House of Bears Books 1-4. Also some new projects in the pipeline to be announced soon...

“The narrator was spectacular. Amazing voice for these characters.”
“Bree Elaine did an excellent job as narrator. Her performance of male and female characters was well done.”
“I loved the narration by Bree she really makes the book come to to life.”
“Elaine was able to bring Ellie to life and did a great job on the narration.”
“Narrator: the narrator was easy to listen to. She did an amazing job going from one person to another and this helped make the book so good.”
“This was one of my first Lana Sky reads, and I loved listening to it in Audio! I can’t wait for the next one.”
“The narration done by Bree Elaine was done really well, and brought the character to life so it was really enjoyable.”
“Well written and a great narrator.”
“The narrator's voice was pleasant and they did a good job in helping to bring the book to life.”

“This story is a very sweet, fun, engaging, quick listen and I really enjoyed the flirty banter in their conversations.”
