About Yoga

Traditionally the goal of yoga is to be able to sit with stillness, to contain the thoughts of the mind to a point of focus, rather than the usual merry dance the distracted mind plays.

During yoga workshops and retreats, as well as practicing poses, we explore some of the yoga teachings around managing thoughts and habits.

Yoga gives us some many tools to help both our body and our mind.


Beth uses traditional teachings as a foundation to her approach, they inspire all of the themes we explore in more depth.

“Yoga is the process of replacing old patterns with new and more appropriate ones.”

Sri Krishnamacharya
