Beth Vanderwerken

Yoga has been a consistent part of Beth’s life since 2006. She remembers begrudgingly entering her first yoga class as a result of constant persistence from a friend to try it. Yet, it was evident after her first class that this practice would be a life-changing one, shaping her as a person, on and off the mat. 

In 2009, Beth decided to take her yoga “game” up a notch and got her 200RYT certification to instruct the Hatha practice she adores. In 2020, she continued her education to become a 500 RYT, specializing in Restorative and Yin Yoga. She constantly is educating herself on different modalities, as well as the philosophy that roots Yoga. Through this, she hopes to make yoga appealing to those with limited mobility and to enhance the traditional Western “physical” practice to one that is deeper set and healing. 

Through yoga, she has enjoyed the exploration of unity between mind, body and spirit, as well as how all energies play a connective role in the universe. To her, yoga is more than a workout, but also a work within. This is something she conveys within her classes, through the use of yoga philosophies, pranayama, and mantra work. 

When Beth isn’t in the studio, you will most likely find her volunteering with her work group, Burners Without Border or in the kitchen, cooking up plant-based, nutritionally dense foods to her favorite bluegrass tunes. And whether it be camping or hiking, she also finds her joy is within the greater expanses of nature, particularly the desert. Finally, a little known fact: she also dances salsa and attends the Burning Man festival regularly as her creative outlet.
