yogaBeverly is a World Golf Village resident who loves yoga. She is a registered and certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Phoenix Rising Yoga Teacher, Personal Trainer, Pilates Instructor, as well as a Reiki Practitioner. She is currently studying to complete her 500 hour Yoga certification (Spring 2013) and is on the Yoga Teacher Training staff at Discovery Yoga in St. Augustine. Beverly’s classes and personal instruction emphasize breath/body awareness, core control, and a mind/body connection. She feels that each student is their own most wise teacher and self-acceptance is an integral part of optimal health, well being, and happiness. Incorporating the “Yang” of postures and movement with the “Yin” of stillness in mind and body can bring balance, restoration, and stress relief.
