Brianna Wieser RDN, LD, RYT-500
Brianna began practicing yoga in 2002 after 12 years of performing ballet, jazz, tap, pointe, and
contemporary dance around the country. Yoga immediately made her feel as though she had a
peaceful and therapeutic environment in which to practice self-care, self-love, and self-
In 2005, after a year long dance contract in Japan, Brianna completed the Yoga Works- Los
Angeles 500 hr Teacher Training and Professional Program. Her mentor was Intermediate
Senior Iyengar teacher, Lisa Walford. Since then, Brianna has taught yoga in California, New
York, and Minnesota and is happy to have The Yoga Center of Minneapolis as her home studio.
Brianna’s classes emphasize the intimate connection between the body, breath, and brain
through slow and mindful movement. She focuses on safety through proper alignment, works
dynamically to support the joints, and avoids postures that are contraindicated for the majority.
Brianna aims to empower each practitioner to personalize their experience in the room and
learn how yoga can come to support their physical, mental, and emotional/spiritual needs.
In addition to her background in yoga, Brianna is a Mayo Clinic trained Registered
Dietitian/Nutritionist with a B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics from New York University. She lives in
the the East Calhoun neighborhood of Uptown with her husband, Michael who is a professional
actor and ice cream aficionado.
