Yoga is about so much more than the shapes we make on the mat and we cannot wait to dive into the depths of this incredible practice with you. This 6-month immersive is an exploration of yogic history, philosophy, and practice, inspired by the ancient wisdom of Patanjali's 8 Limbed Path.
Through live discussions, guest teacher workshops, pre-recorded lectures, practices, and additional thoughtfully chosen resources, inspire your studentship and bring more meaning to your practice, both on and off the mat. This virtual training is meant to meet you where you are and can be completed live or on-demand, as all live discussions and guest teacher workshops will be recorded and stored for you to access on your own time.
Whether a student looking to deepen your own studentship without the pressure of teaching or an existing teacher looking to honor Yoga's roots, this immersion is here for you. We cannot wait to explore all that this beautiful practice is with you. We cannot wait to inspire you to LIVE your yoga, on and off the mat.
We are so excited for you to join us and most of all, want this training to feel accessible embodying the essence of this practice. The sliding scale pricing model is based on trust, inclusivity, and reciprocity. Please take an honest inventory of your personal resources and choose a price that works for you. If you're in need of additional support, payment plans and BIPOC scholarships with savings up to $500 are here for you to meet you where you are.

Beth first began practicing yoga after college, learning quickly that its purpose was to guide her back to a feeling of home within herself each and every time she stepped onto her mat.
In 2017, Beth completed 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training, began teaching, and never looked back, completing a holistic wellness coaching certification program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in that same year. Since stepping into her soul’s work as a teacher and guide, she left corporate America, started Whole Beeing LLC, and has been teaching yoga and wellness coaching ever since.
At the start of 2020, Beth completed 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training through Indra Yoga Institute in India, where she immersed herself in the ancient teachings of the practice, trauma informed yoga, Ayurveda, and sacred Indian culture. Through teaching yoga and wellness coaching, Beth strives to facilitate self-study, or Svadhyaya in Sanskrit, as she holds space for her students and clients to inquire with themselves, live with greater intention and awareness, feel at home in their own skin, and incorporate lessons learned on the mat into their daily lives.
Each module focuses on either one or two of the Patanjali's 8 Limbs and includes a blend of pre-recorded and Live content. Pre-recorded content includes lectures introducing you to the limb, on-the-mat practices, additional resources such as podcasts and articles, and additional guest pre-recorded lectures. Live content includes one live discussion and one special guest live workshop per month to deepen understanding, explore, and connect.
Both! We created this training as an opportunity for students to deepen their practice without the pressure of teaching AND for teachers who are eager to honor Yoga's roots or invest in their own studentship. All we ask is that you come as you are — with an open mind, an interest in yoga, and eager to learn.
