Brittny McCarthy is an Associate Marriage + Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA, incorporating more than 15 years of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices into her therapeutic work with clients, as well as in her own life.

She has taught yoga since 2007, owned a community yoga studio in West Los Angeles, and is certified through the Yoga Alliance, the accrediting body that recognizes certified yoga teachers, as a E-200 RYT/500 RYT. Yoga, mindfulness, and personal growth are pillars of her personal and professional life.

“Having traveled to India three times and benefiting personally from the life practice of yoga, I am proud to be a member of the YGB board. It feels like a small gesture to give back in this way to the birthplace of yoga and to the growing community that supports and sustains my own practice.”
