Hi there! My name is Bairet (she/her) and I am overjoyed to be a part of the Being Human Wellness Life team.
I have always had a love and appreciation for animals, nature and helping others since I was young. With this comes a deep sense of connection and observation to find understanding in all things. On my journey to find healing for my mental health, I turned to yoga, practicing for many years before completing my yoga teacher training. I have completed 235hr Yoga Teacher Training Certification from Devanadi School of Yoga and Wellness and a certification in Chair Yoga through The Adventures of Super Stretch. I have taught yoga for over a year in the Menomonie area, focusing on gentle flow and restorative yoga. I incorporate breathwork, movement and meditation and create an inclusive space for all bodies.
My background is mainly in sustainable and regenerative agriculture, working on an educational farm with all ages, as an organic agronomist and at a nonprofit focused around stewardship of the land. I graduated from UW-River Falls with a B.S. Crop and Soil Science with an emphasis in Sustainable Agriculture.
Healing is not linear, and it takes all the time it needs. I am optimistic, patient, and empathetic and come into this work with a deep sense of compassion and understanding without judgment to be your authentic self. I draw on my experiences as a yoga teacher, teaching through a philosophical lens touching on all eight limbs of yoga. I also lean into my personal experience with anxiety, grief, body image, trauma and learning how to set personal boundaries to create a sense of safety. I take an individualized approach, allowing clients' bodies to guide themselves toward healing. Whether that’s through yoga movement (asana), finding stillness, games and reading, or creative avenues like art. Other practices we may incorporate are grounding exercises, breathwork (pranayama), connecting to nature and animals through gardening or observational hiking.
As an animal and nature lover I enjoy cooking, hiking, camping, reading a good book, and hanging out with my animals which all bring me a sense of joy. In addition to my time here at Being Human Wellness Life Services, I farm certified naturally grown vegetables, flowers, and herbs with my partner in Menomonie. I married my high school sweetheart whom I have been with for nearly 12 years, we currently have two cats, 5 goats, several ducks, and chickens. I have one nephew that I enjoy seeing any chance I can.
