Zoe Benjamin

Heart Space Holder & Community Experience Curator

Zoe supports beings to feel kind within their bodies. That is her mission. She has spent the last decade + working with and studying human bodies.

 

In that process she has come to believe that our voice, our sound-acts as an inner tuning fork. That when we allow the dissonant (seemingly “ugly”) sounds and exhales to be expressed, healing and softening takes place. Inner freedom becomes illuminated. 

 

She is a Massage Therapist, Pain & Injury Specialist, Sound Practitioner, Meditation & Somatic Facilitator.  She works with individuals and groups holding space for people to be with themselves. To create a deepening sense of the body being home, with more awareness, embrace and gratitude.

BRANDI SADLER

Heart Space Holder

Born and raised in north Florida, Brandi grew up the second oldest of six children. When not practicing or teaching yoga, you can find her outside in the garden, surfing, biking, enjoying one of North Florida’s natural springs, playing music, or enjoying her love and connection with the natural world with her dog, Dante. Brandi has been a practicing licensed massage therapist for 20 years, she holds a degree in Horticulture Science (Organic Crop production), is a birth doula, a Prema Breathwork facilitator, a teacher of cacao medicine, earth keeper, and space holder. 

 

As a lifelong yoga student, Brandi started her spiritual journey with yoga over 22 years ago, studing Ashtanga Yoga and Iyengar Yoga lineages, Shamanic Medicine Wheel Teachings, and Plant Medicines. 

 

Brandi is a musician who has re-found her skill, passion and her voice through playing sacred mantra on the harmonium. It is though this creativity that she has been able to connect more deeply to her own inner teachings, and re-connect to her spiritual practices, which has solidified her connection more deeply to God. 

 

For the past 14 years Brandi has been teaching and sharing this yoga practice through weekly yoga classes, workshops, international and local yoga teachers trainings (200 & 300 hr level). In 2019, through a desire to expand the offerings of yoga with her community, she opened Wildflowers Yoga studio in Gainesville, FL. When not traveling internationally, it is at Wildflowers Yoga that Brandi facilitates breathwork, cacao ceremonies, alignment-based classes and workshops, yoga trainings, practices somatic-integrative massage therapy, and holds a safe space for healing. 

 

In more recent years her life has taken her to incorporate more 1:1 offerings that combine breathwork, bodywork, cacao and mentorship, in addition to an annual journey to Peru for a Yoga & Plant Medicine Retreat. 

 

Brandi’s Gainesville studio is the honorary brick and mortar home for the Heart Space. Please keep an eye out for different offerings that Wildflowers Yoga shares with the Heart Space.

Alexandra Moga

Heart Space Holder

I have dedicated my life to helping others on their healing journeys. Through the art and science of yoga, I seek to serve as a reminder of full-spectrum harmony and well being, drawing from the Vedas' vast teachings, which include healing movement, breathing, mantra, meditation, astrology and heart-fulness, or devotion. Through my 20+ year journey of yoga, I remain a dedicated student and practitioner, seeking the heart of truth in the mystical devotional practices of all traditions. I strive to combine classic techniques with of-the-moment themes with the intention to speak to the needs of the modern practitioner. I am deeply grateful and excited to be a Heartspace holder and look forward to connecting on this journey to wholeness, wisdom and joy together!
