Here’s The Scoop!
My name is Brooke West. I am a certified Yoga Therapist and meditation teacher. I have been classically trained in Yoga, leading students of all ages and abilities toward inner peace and tranquility for thirteen years in San Luis Obispo County and beyond.
I am a master teacher, Yoga teacher trainer and an international lecturer, researcher and advocate for Yoga as integrative therapy, specializing in mental health and wellness.
I am committed to supporting your health and growth.
As Alyssa, the founder, steps away from Grateful Spirit for the birth of her child, I wish to honor her for creating and maintaining a warm atmosphere for people to blossom. I am honored to have the opportunity to share the Light and healing of Yoga with the community. I hope you will join us soon!
Grateful Spirit is faith-open studio. We will strive to provide accessible Yoga, movement, mindfulness and peace to all who pass through its doors.

Wednesday, April 4
6pm – 8pm The Goddess Project
Traveling through the diverse landscapes of America, The Goddess Project will explore the many ways in which women are realizing their potential, overcoming their fears, and propelling our world into a new state of consciousness. 8pm – 10pmYogawoman
Women have embraced yoga for easing health conditions like breast cancer, infertility, heart disease, and anxiety and depression. Yoga has transformed the lives of women in prison, cancer survivors, and those struggling with body image or eating disorders with candor. And beyond these circumstances, we witness how women have integrated yoga into their daily lives so they are happier, healthier, and more fulfilled — allowing them to give back to others with full hearts and creative minds.
Friday, April 6
6pm – 8pmCrazywise
Crazy…or wise? The traditional wisdom of shamans and indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis. Is it a ‘calling’ to grow or just a ‘broken brain’? The documentary CRAZYWISE explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience.
8pm – 10pm Healing Voices
A feature-length documentary examining experiences commonly labeled as ‘psychosis’ or ‘mental illness’ in society, a critical look at America’s broken mental health care system and how peer support systems enhance recovery.
Saturday, April 7
6pm – 8pm Neurons To Nirvana
A stylish, in depth look at the renaissance in psychedelic drug research in light of current scientific, medical and cultural knowledge.
8pm – 10pm Heal
We have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe. This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all.
Yin Yoga for Anxiety Workshop
with Gina Hobbs
Sunday, April 15
10am – 12noon
Anxiety, Anger and “Asshole” mindset all stem from the same root emotion. Join Gina for a morning of self exploration and heart work as we mindfully tap into triggers, surrender to WHAT IS and release our desire to control things we cannot.
Gina Hobbs has lived and practiced on the central coast for over 30 years and is a requested teacher at GSY. Yin Yoga and meditation are at the forefront of her service. She invites everyone to come and “chalk out” time and space to just BE with absolutely no expectation but the readiness to receive. It is her firm belief that we do not come to the mat to “do” Yoga, we come to the mat because we “are” Yoga.
