President and Founder
Rachel has been practicing yoga since the age of 14. She received her 200-hour teacher training certification from Lyn Kehoe Power Yoga in Ridgefield, CT in the summer of 2019. She founded BRY after completing her training and wanting a community for yogis on Cornell’s campus. She is a senior in the Dyson school of Applied Economics and Management and an active member of the Cornell figure skating community. Her favorite thing about Ithaca is hiking the gorges as the leaves are changing color in the fall.

She continues to practices at Cornell as a way to feel more relaxed and gain mental control over stressful situations. She is a senior majoring in history at the College of Arts and Sciences and works as research assistant at the Children’s Witness and Cognition Lab, she is also a member of Art Beyond Cornell and an opinion columnist for the Cornell Daily Sun. Her favorite thing to do in Ithaca on a nice day is to jog around Beebe then head to CTB for dessert and a smoothie.

Karen is a senior majoring in Environment and Sustainability and minoring in English and Law. Karen’s yoga practice began in the summer of 2015 in London, England. Living abroad and working in a lab, Karen needed a safe place to spiritually connect with herself. She began attending a studio four to five times a week, where she gained a solid foundation in vinyasa practice. Since then, Karen maintains her own self-practice, consulting her instructors when she trades her home mat for a studio one. To date, she has informal teaching experience, instructing colleagues, friends, and family. She is currently raising money to become a certified instructor, and until then, is happily using yoga as a way to connect to herself and the people she loves. When Karen is not doing yoga, you can find her reading, hiking, or doing absolutely nothing while lying in the sun.

Social Media Chair
Victoria has practiced yoga on and off for a long time, but this year she developed a passion for it. Practicing brings her a sense of calm and a space for reflection during times of stress. She hopes to portray the clubs caring community through social media to create a welcoming atmosphere for anyone looking to get involved. Victoria is studying Earth and Atmospheric Science and plans to concentrate in Environmental Studies. One of her favorite things about Ithaca is all the fresh produce that she and her friends use to try new recipes.
