About Founder, Brandon Dawson-Jarvis

Brandon Dawson-Jarvis

Ater struggling with PTSD and depression for over a year, Brandon Dawson-Jarvis was at an all time low. With very few options to resort to, he tried yoga. He was reluctant at first because he did not identify with the practice but he decided to give it a try.

Yoga emerged as a practice that was eye-opening and counteracted his mental health issues. Brandon realized that yoga moves much deeper than our physical bodies and has the ability to transmute a wide variety of issues, including mental health.

Brandon felt the need to share this practice and its benefits with others, and created what he felt was lacking: a space for all. He began leading karma sessions and using the contributions to have an impact in the community, thus Grove Campus was born.
