2011 LYD AWARD
Bethaney began practicing yoga as a way to stay centered, balanced, and active while working as an elementary school teacher. Her natural affinity toward teaching and sharing the things she is passionate about lead her easily into her first certifications in both yoga and Pilates. She earned her 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher certification in the Samatva Yoga Teacher Training Program with Karen Prior. Her teaching style has since been inspired by teachers such as Seane Corn, Kathryn Budig, Tiffany Cruikshank, Dice Iida-Klein & Briohny Smyth as well as countless fellow yogis who have inspired her own practice along the way. “I enjoy being a student just as much as being a teacher. Life is about giving and receiving in the same breath.” Bethaney, her husband, and two sons enjoy living and owning a small business here in the community they love. Since opening the first doors to Inspire Yoga in 2010, a thriving community has grown where everyone is welcomed, guided, and connected.
