Your Instructors:

Madhavi Gershenfeld Instructor

Madhavi joins Mindfulness First with a commitment to improving the lives of children through the power of mindfulness training. She is a long-term practitioner of mindfulness. She has enjoyed working in her sons’ elementary school as a writing coach and in the PTA doing community outreach. Her deep interest in teaching mindfulness to children led her to complete the Mindfulness Curriculum Training from Mindful Schools.

Madhavi earned an MFA in Film Production from Temple University, in Philadelphia, where she taught classes in the basics of video production. Her video, (Un)Named, was featured at the Whitney Museum. She was also a curator at film festivals in Philadelphia and Los Angeles before deciding to stay at home to raise her two sons, both now in high school. She lives with her husband, sons and two rabbits in North Scottsdale.

Brittany Shulla, Instructor

Brittany’s healing journey started in 2009 when she was admitted as an outpatient to the Eating Recovery Center in Denver Colorado. She was there to treat her ongoing Bulimia Nervosa. Soon realizing it stemmed from many things, the main factor being a severe anxiety disorder. Once she got down to the core of her issues she realized that no matter what the circumstances looked like in her life, how she reacted to them was what dictated happiness verses suffering. As she started to learn the tools to better her life, she found that mindfulness, being in the present moment, was an underlying common denominator.

Last year she reached the point in which she was ready to start sharing these tools with others. She became a certified yoga teacher in 2014 and at the end of the year, attended a mindfulness first fundraiser that immediately sparked an interest.

What Brittany adds to the mix is her way of teaching these things while still making it fun. “The relief can be there even without having to try".
