Mission Statement

Helping individuals on their journey to find resiliency through the practice of trauma informed yoga.

Founder History

Namaste Rx was founded on the ideals of the “Me Too” movement and are allies for those healing from past trauma. We understand that trauma extends past the physical nature and leaves a lasting impression on an individual’s mental wellbeing. Namaste Rx will use yoga as a tool, and nature as the venue for personal grounding and self-discovery. Established and actively expanding across Oregon since September 2020 by owners and co-founders Britny Chandler and Haripriya Prakash.


Britny Chandler

Britny Chandler began her journey toward healing in 2020 after her diagnosis of PTSD, anxiety, and depression in the traditional mental health setting. By combining traditional therapy, short term medication management, yoga, and meditation she uncovered a path toward resiliency. Therapy helped her understand the effects that trauma has on the brain. Medication helped mitigate her symptoms of the trauma induced mental illness. Yoga and meditation helped her live in the present, regulate her emotions, and let go of the uncontrollable. Over time, Britny worked to manage her symptoms through yoga and meditation practice without additional therapy or medication.

Britny is enthusiastic about helping others heal from past trauma and find their path to live a happier, healthier, more resilient, and peaceful life. Her expertise entails contracting, program management, regulatory auditing, and vendor management.


Haripriya Prakash

Haripriya (Priya) Prakash began her yoga journey in 2012. Though never diagnosed with a mental health condition, Priya recognized she was not in alignment with herself after the loss of her father in 2009. As she navigated through her undergraduate studies, it became apparent she needed support for processing loss in a healthy way while staying grounded and focused. Yoga became her first step toward healing as well as establishing her core values, discovering her purpose, and finding her true self. In 2016, she incorporated meditation into her practice, which ultimately shaped her perspective on the meaning of life, living in the present, and spreading love abundantly. As her practice deepened, so did her commitment to leading a life of service to her community and to those in need of help.

Priya provides expertise in healthcare transformation, relationship management, and data analytics along with a solutions-driven mindset. She graduated with honors from Oregon State University with a dual degree in Biology and Public Health – Health Promotion and Health Behavior and earned her MSB in Financial Analytics from Oregon State.

Cisgender: Refers to an individual whose gender identity aligns with the one typically associated with the sex assigned to them at birth.

Gender-fluid: According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a person who does not identify with a single fixed gender; of or relating to a person having or expressing a fluid or unfixed gender identity.

Genderqueer: Genderqueer people typically reject notions of static categories of gender and embrace a fluidity of gender identity and often, though not always, sexual orientation. People who identify as “genderqueer” may see themselves as being both male and female, neither male nor female or as falling completely outside these categories.

Non-binary: An adjective describing a person who does not identify exclusively as a man or a woman. Non-binary people may identify as being both a man and a woman, somewhere in between, or as falling completely outside these categories. While many also identify as transgender, not all non-binary people do.

Transgender: Often shortened to trans. A term describing a person’s gender identity that does not necessarily match their assigned sex at birth. Other terms commonly used are female to male (or FTM), male to female (or MTF), assigned male at birth (or AMAB), assigned female at birth (or AFAB), genderqueer, and gender expansive. Transgender people may or may not decide to alter their bodies hormonally and/or surgically to match their gender identity. This word is also used as a broad umbrella term to describe those who transcend conventional expectations of gender identity or expression. Like any umbrella term, many different groups of people with different histories and experiences are often included within the greater transgender community – such groups include, but are certainly not limited to, people who identify as transsexual, genderqueer, gender variant, gender diverse, and androgynous.

Two-Spirit (also two spirit or, occasionally, twospirited): A modern, pan-Indian, umbrella term used by some indigenous North Americans to describe certain people in their communities who fulfill a traditional third-gender (or other gender-variant) ceremonial role in their cultures.
