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, that journey into yoga.  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, start with a gentle or beginning class. Find an instructor you feel comfortable and safe with.  Trust your gut.  Then once you get started, your instructor can help you find your next step.  Give it a try, give me a try. Together we can make this a wonderful experience for you.

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 Arcadia, CA. where I later became part of the Yoga Teacher Training staff.

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 own healing.  This brought me to Larry Payne a SAMATA Yoga Center/LMU where I studied Prime of Life Yoga. Keeping that gentle healing 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 through the Bihar method, I acquired my certification through Dr. Marc Halpern of the California School of Ayurveda.
 
For me Yoga is a lifestyle and a tool to help you live a calm, happy and healthy life.  Because of this outlook my classes are also well rounded by including Pranayama (breath work), Asanas (poses), Acu Yoga and Mudras (self healers), Meditation and Savasana (final relaxation)
