Yoga with Betsy - Gita Yoga Learning - Yoga Teacher Training

Aloha, and thanks for visiting my website!

Yoga can be done by any one, any size, any shape, any age.  Yep, no more excuses!  If you have ever thought of bringing yoga into your life, then do something for you.  What better time to start than now?  Let me take you on that journey. Every pose can be modified to fit your body and your level of fitness.  If you are new to yoga, or haven't practiced in a while, then my gentle approach is just right for you. What are you waiting for, let's do this together.

A little about me:
After two years of training with my Guru, I acquired my first certification through the Sajni School of Yoga in Bangalore, India.  After several years of teaching, I expanded my education and earned my 500 hour certification through the Gita Yoga Learning Center in Duarte, CA/Eugene OR. where I am now a co-owner.

My passion is traditional Ashtanga/Hatha yoga which is more than a physical approach to yoga.  It is more a way of living your life.  I then acquired an interest in Yoga for people over 40 and those who need a more gentle and personal approach to their yoga experience.This brought me to Larry Payne a SAMATA Yoga Center/LMU where I studied Prime of Life Yoga. Keeping that gentle approach to my way of teaching, I decided to further my experience by including Yoga Nidra (aka Yoga Sleep) which is a guided meditation that has been clinically proven to reduce stress, anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia  and PTSD etc.  It allows you to bring yourself to the edge of consciousness which is where healing begins.  Although my first experience with Yoga Nidra was the Bihar, I acquired my certification through Dr. Marc Halpern of the California School of Ayurveda.

I have also been blessed to take classes and workshops with some amazing instructors.  I would not be where I am without the influence of Pat Collins, Rupa Dore, Gyl Elliott, Larry Payne, Marc Halpern, Mukunda and Cinnamasta Styles, Rod Stryker, Rodney Yee, Camilla Nair, Stephanie Snyder...and so, so many others. 
 
For me Yoga is a lifestyle and a tool to help you live a calm, happy and balanced life, by teaching Pranayama (breath work), Asanas (poses), Acu Yoga and Mudras (self healers), Meditation and Savasana (final relaxation) in each class.
