Betty teaches with a holistic approach. She supports your life journey as you choose to create it. Her warm, enthusiastic and playful approach helps to put you at ease. She encourages you to explore your life, experience challenges as opportunities, and to see changes as blessings.
Her workshops are geared toward the beauty and practicality of practicing yoga regardless of your previous experience or background. They are appropriate for all ages, students and teachers alike. They are for people of varying skills and abilities so that each can do the postures according to their personal needs. The results are increased flexibility, better balance, a stronger body and more energy throughout the day. You can experience that “feeling good” is a natural state of being.
An important aspect of Betty’s teaching is the incorporation of breathing techniques. Breathing techniques and yoga postures are two of yoga's many gifts. The practitioner develops an increased awareness, reduced stress and an enhanced quality of life. These gifts may come suddenly, gradually, or simply move in stages from plateau to plateau.
