Bethany trained as a 200-hour yoga teacher with Avid Yogi in 2016 and in 2017-18 she travelled to London regularly to train in yoga therapy with the Minded Institute. Her experiences working in care and support services for vulnerable people over a seven year period have led her to deeply value the holistic benefits that yoga and mindfulness bring. As well as Meadowlark Yoga studio and the Minded Institute, she is very grateful to the Mindfulness Association, whose teachings have benefitted her and her teaching beyond expectation.
Bethany teaches Ashtanga-based classes, vinyasa flow, restorative and beginners’ yoga to a wide variety of people, including homeless and vulnerably housed people, in partnership with the Salvation Army. She particularly enjoys leading classes for people aged 60+.
She loves singing and incorporates yogic chanting into my classes. Her current passion is exploring the world of mindful compassion practices, as taught by the likes of psychologists Kristin Neff and Paul Gilbert.
