Bri Hamlet, MPH, CHES, RYT-200 (affectionately nicknamed Bri) is a Certified Health Educator and 200-hour Registered Yoga Instructor. Her business, JustBriFree Yoga & Wellness, aims to teach yoga to all with an emphasis on communities of color and LGBTQIA+ persons.

Unfortunately she still struggled to find yoga studios that felt like home to black and brown people.
After years of practicing and self-healing, Bri decided to become a yoga instructor and bring yoga to her community. In April 2019 she launched debuted her signature Soul Flow Sunday vinyasa yoga classes. In just one year of operation, JustBriFree has taught over 150 students – most of whom are new to yoga. Her work has been featured in The San Diego Voyager and The San Diego Voice and Viewpoint magazines.
