PAMPERING, PLEASURE & PERSONAL WELLNESS, JULY 20TH, 2019
Brittany Russell, Elevated Yoga - CANNABIS YOGA
Certified Cannabis Yoga Instructor, Brittany, began her love of the movement, through her experience as a dancer. She was first drawn to Yoga for the physical benefits. She wanted to become stronger and more flexible, touch her head all the way to her toes-and all that. As time went on, Brittany’s connection to her practice changed. She started to feel the abundant mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of Yoga. This year Brittany trained with Dee Dussault, who is the author of Ganja Yoga and an overall brilliant goddess, at her Ganja Yoga Teacher Training. Brittany is eager to share her knowledge with everyone and guide students through a healing evening of plant and practice! Brittany will be demonstrating Yoga/Stretching & Healing Demonstrations + Technique Sharing + shoulder massage with tennis balls!

Tiffany Anne, Mozaic + Henna Tattoo Artist, @mozaic_sf
Traditionally a mosaic is known as small pieces of various colored material put together to fabricate a bigger piece of art as a whole. The explication behind Mozaic is the array of different services offered by Tiffany Anne to fashion one big piece: Mozaic Artistry. Originating with nail art, face painting, and accessory-making to now specializing in the most current services of henna art (and semi permanent makeup), art and creating has always made Tiffany happy since she was young. A self taught henna artist, she has been exploring her henna journey for the past 8 years, starting out adorning her middle school students for fun. Native to the beautiful City of San Francisco, Tiffany has since traveled up and down the Golden State expanding her knowledge and network at Henna Conferences while feeding her heart's passion. She knows that there is still so much to learn and is excited to blaze on the path of artistry and adventure that lies ahead!
