Brett Land began practicing yoga soon after he enrolled in a PhD
program in Religious Studies at UCSB because he found the calming and
focusing benefits of the postures a powerful antidote to the mental
rigors of graduate school. He is especially drawn to the strength and
poise that a strong posture practice offers. In 2009 he began teaching
classes at Yoga Soup. He also teaches composition and literature at
the Santa Barbara City College. He enjoys writing and stretching.
