Who am I?
I am a singer, actor, yogi, and reiki healer originally from AZ with an artistic spirit that not only helps me to create on the stage, but on the mat as well. In 2006, I started my journey with yoga to achieve balance in my life and quickly saw the amazing benefits of a regular practice. Four years later, I wanted to give back the gift that yoga had given to me…a new grounded outlook and appreciation on life as well as some fun party tricks. 🙂 I completed my 200 hour Vinyasa training at Sonic Yoga, in the heart of midtown Manhattan in 2010, and have been teaching professionally in NYC studios and privately ever since. The guiding principle of Uncle Brian Wellness, and my personal philosophy in life is “Leap. Play. Love.” Every day I decide to take a risk, have fun, and love like there is no tomorrow! This outlook on life has helped me both personally, on stage, and in my healing work. I am beyond excited to share this work with the world.
Why Uncle Brian Wellness?
Through a reiki (energy healing) session I had while in Africa, I was introduced to the power of this healing technique and fell in love with its unique benefits. Again, I decided I wanted to share this gift with others, earning my reiki attunement and starting practice on anyone needing some healing love and light. During this time, my best friend’s daughter Zoe was born with half a heart (a condition known as HLHS). I knew that reiki could help her both in and out surgeries, so my friend Stacey and I received our Master attunements and went to work on Zoe, at the hospital. The nurses were so supportive and were wowed by the quickness of Zoe’s recovery. They even joined Zoe in calling me “Uncle Brian” as they came in and out to check on her. The nickname grew on social media as Stacey’s friends in her circle of “heart moms” continued to post pictures of me and Zoe saying, “Everyone needs an Uncle Brian!” Hence, the inspiration behind the name Uncle Brian Wellness!
Yes, that too! I love this kind of work. I have found that combining familiar deep tissue work techniques, gentle passive stretching, along side breath work and energy healing, I can help guide your body to a more relaxed, stress and tension free place! I am very intuitive and love helping you! Also…people tell me I have magical hands…so come find out if they are right!
