FALL CLASSES start September 12 & 13, 2023
One of the definitions I use for the word Yoga is 'the process of becoming more aware'. This is the basis for my teaching philosophy. It becomes the measurement I offer students to know if the yoga they are practicing is serving them.
Each class I teach offers opportunity to explore this subject through breath, alignment and movement of your body as well as stillness.
Classes are offered in 6-10 week sessions
Participate in person and/or online (depending on interest)
If you are coming in-person, please bring your own yoga mat and towel to lay over props
Drop-ins only if there is space ($25 tax in)
10 week session fee is $210 (tax in)

9:00-10:15 am - All Levels Exploratory Hatha Yoga
Starts Tuesday, September 12, 2023
This is intended to be an in-person class this time around, however, if there is enough interest for online participation, I will revisit.
The emphasis in this all levels class is on exploring movement and learning about how the human body is meant to work and more importantly how your own body moves or doesn’t move. This is not a class about ‘getting a workout’.
I often say my favourite definition of yoga is the ‘process of becoming more aware’. I can’t teach awareness, but I can invite you to move towards it by creating an environment that asks for presence - connecting mind to body. Noticing, sensing and feeling are tools to unlock areas of the mind and body and bring them closer to being one.
We may use props such as the wall, chairs, belts, blocks, tennis balls, dowels and blankets. Whether you have had a little or a lot of yoga experience, this class is for you as I offer many variations and modifications.
Workshops are a great way to expand your knowledge base and experience. They are an opportunity to delve into a topic with Beth that you might not be able to get in a typical yoga class.
"Beth is a wise yoga educator, her class is always refreshing to anyone wanting to find some inspiration, movement, and mind body connection. If you are a beginner or an advanced practitioner, and you are open to receive, you will enjoy her teachings. Thanks Beth for hosting online yoga, as a Mom of 2 under the age"
"I have had the privilege of practicing Restorative and Gentle Yoga with Beth, in studio, and, more recently, virtually. She immediately draws people into her aura by virtue of her intuition, depth of knowledge and inner wisdom. Beth’s caring, virtual presence is felt as if you were physically in the room with her! Her teachings and invitations are transformative physically, spiritually and mindfully~ she speaks to the heart. Beth is masterful in offering precise descriptions of body alignment and postures, and provides entry points for all of us, wherever we are, on our yoga journeys. I am always inspired by her… and benefit from reflecting on her teachings for my own personal growth and insight."
"In challenging times like these we need to keep moving! Beth’s Gentle Yoga certainly provides that and I can assure you all that I feel very good at the end of it!
I am balance challenged and this is on the mat (for the most part) and I have never felt over my head! (Love it!! Should have started it sooner!)"
9:00-10:00 am - Gentle & Therapeutic Hatha Yoga
Starts Wednesday, September 13, 2023
In-person and online combination class.
Yoga as a healing tool and therapy is an incredible gift. In this class, every week you'll be offered combinations of gentle movement with focused alignment cues that can release as well as strengthen the body; mindful breathing techniques, visualizations and meditation that can serve to bring you into your body and away from mental chatter; and restorative yoga, a yoga prop supported practice that invites you to rest and restore into the calming and healing side of your nervous system.
This class is geared towards those in need of a slower paced, gentle and healing practice. Also suitable for anyone living with injuries, persistent physical challenges, cancer, anxiety and depression.
This class requires that you are able to come down onto the floor, stand and sit on a chair. We will practice modified 'traditional' yoga standing poses as well as poses and positions laying on the floor and sitting in a chair.
