Bhavana Yoga Studio was founded by Soraya and Nate Preseault in 2017 and has become a space for healing in Sarasota, Florida. Bhavana, meaning to cultivate, is more than just a place to grow your practice through your physical body, but also to nurture healing through the connection of community, meditation, and more.
In September 2021, Brittany Coblentz became the owner of Bhavana Yoga Studio. She has been with the studio since its inception in 2017 with roles spanning from teaching to lending a hand when needed. Brittany's Chinese Medicine background brings a unique vision to the future of the studio as Bhavana continues to be a sacred space for our community and a place for exploring new paths of healing, finding balance, connecting to breath, and deepening self-awareness.
We aim to keep our class sizes smaller (under 14 students) so we may provide a more personal and boutique experience. This enables our teachers to cultivate a deeper focus with each student without the overwhelm of a high capacity space. Our intention is for you to know that you are seen, heard, and able to explore your yoga in a space of support at Bhavana.

Brittany is a Sarasota native, mama to 3-year-old Harper and baby Piper, and natural healing facilitator. She discovered the restorative benefits of yoga in 2016 while experiencing a major life transition. It was not in her original plans to teach yoga, but rather explore a deeper understanding of the practice and herself. What she found was community and an energetic pull to share what she was experiencing. This continues to inspire Brittany to approach yoga gently by honoring the whole person through mindful movements, breath-work, and meditation.
Brittany is also the founder and owner of Dragonfly Integrative Wellness, where she is a Restorative Health and Wellness Practitioner creating individually sculpted treatment sessions to support your body's unique healing process. When she’s not in the studio, she’s enjoying time with her family and preparing to take her medical boards to become an Acupuncture Physician and Doctor of Eastern Medicine.
