Learn more about Beth

What inspired you to become a yoga teacher/practitioner?

I love to teach and I love yoga, it seemed a natural thing to me to combine these two loves into a career that I also love.

What goals do you have for your future?

Continue to grow my business and perhaps teach yoga therapy at a collegiate level.

What's the funniest moment or most fun experience you've had as a teacher?

Teaching reclining big toe pose to high school girls. I said “take your left head to your knee” (should have said take your head to your left knee). Those girls looked at me like I had two heads!

What is your favorite thing about being a yoga instructor?

Seeing clients leave better than they arrive and over time being able to help people to live healthier, happier, more peaceful lives.

What advice would you give to someone just beginning to practice yoga?

Remember it is a practice not a performance, a journey not a destination, stay with it mindfully.

Tell us something most people don't know about you!

I sing just about anything rock to classical, and anything in-between…not just kirtan. Bonus answer here, I’m studying Tai Chi with my husband, this is a new endeavor.
