We recently started thinking about who had done more classes at Buddhi Yoga La Jolla since we opened in 2014. Thanks to our lovely manager, Chelsea, the polls have arrived. Over the years we have had many students coming and going, but at the core there is a special group of students who have become basics in all of our classes. We can’t say enough about how lucky we are to have so many wonderful people sharing this amazing practice with us year after year.
* Drum roll please *
Lea Brekke has taken a total of 1,483 classes.
We have known Lea for what seems like an eternity. He started taking our classes right when we opened Buddhi Yoga La Jolla. He always enters the studio with a big smile, brings us sweets and flowers from time to time, and his warmth is intoxicating. Leah talks to everyone about Buddhi and often takes her family to class or spend time in the studio. We love Leah, she’s the sweetest!
We asked Lea Brekke some questions, and we look forward to introducing her to you next time you see her in the studio.
Why do you like yoga?
Yoga brings me a lot of happiness, peace and joy! Yoga slows my busy mind and directs me to the here and now !! Mindfulness !!! Yoga at Buddhi Yoga is amazing as I have found such a wonderful, happy and loving community along with such wonderful classes and instructors!
What is your favorite style to practice?
I can’t say I have a preferred practice, as each style has different results. Some of my favorite styles are slow flow, kundalini, vinyasa and pranayama !!
What do you do for work and fun?
I love walking on the beach with family and friends, gardening, playing golf, being with my family, meditating, and just being thankful for the gift of life.
What is your favorite and least favorite pose and why?
My favorite posture is Warrior Two, as it reinforces the strength we have within ourselves and reminds me to stay focused on the direction I have chosen. My least preferred posture is hand standing. I need to work on my confidence in this area as well as muscle strength!
What is your hidden talent?
My hidden talent is a feeling of gratitude for all the gifts of life they have given us all daily !! I constantly reinforce that feeling of gratitude on waking and throughout the day! Take a break and be grateful for the smallest to the biggest things in my life.

“Buddhi Yoga takes me to my perfect mood. I always feel a calm happiness after every class, including FlowLIFT! I love the teachers and the whole environment, from the garden to the colors and the location. Really it’s my home away from home and I don’t know what I would do without it. “
Erika Kyte has taken 996 classes.
Erika is an original of Buddhi. Not only is she a wonderful student, but she also attended the training of Buddhi Yoga teachers. You can see it by replacing the restorative and prenatal classes. Bring friends to class and try out all our new teachers, making them feel more welcome in the studio. Thank you Erika for always supporting us and encouraging us to grow as a teacher and as a community.
“I love going to Buddhi for yoga because everyone is treated the same there, greeted with a warm smile. The space is bright and beautiful in a quiet way. I love the class menu and the teachers who they are varied and at the same time share a common thread: Buddhi (superior lordship).
Ladies, stop by the reception to claim your Buddhi award.
