Nov 13, 2019

In this episode we chat with Betsy about her history and background, meditation and how about how everything you need is actually right within you. Betsy is an inspiring teacher, guide and leader and we so enjoyed having her on the show. 

Background: Betsy began practicing yoga regularly in 1991 and has been teaching yoga, meditation, and yoga nidra since 2001; leading classes and workshops in multiple yogic disciplines. Betsy holds thousands of hours of training as well as being a Certified 500 HR E-RYT teacher through the Yoga Alliance. She has facilitated and mentored teacher trainees at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis for over 17 years, as well as still co-facilitating teacher training at the Yoga Center Retreat in St Louis Park, MN, and M. Power Yoga in Baltimore, MD. Betsy met her teacher, Yogarupa Rod Stryker in 2005 and is one of only 5 ParaYoga Teachers in the state of Minnesota; currently a Level II Certified ParaYoga teacher; one of just 27 in the world. She holds a certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in Health and Wellness Coaching. Betsy is also a Four Desires coach (Dharma or Soul Coach), which is a systematic approach to uncover the clients' deepest purpose, what their limiting beliefs are, and how to create a life of fulfillment and meaning. She leads numerous workshops as well as working one on one with clients in the practices of meditation, mindfulness, stress reduction, and building a life of intuition and intention. Betsy founded Amrita Health and Wellness as the culmination of her years of teaching and mentoring and uses the modalities of yoga, integrative and intuitive nutrition, as well as mindfulness practices, to guide her clients towards their highest purpose and their best life.
