Beth found yoga through Serendipity- the effect by which one accidentally stumbles upon something truly wonderful, especially while looking for something entirely unrelated.

It didn’t take long for Beth to be “hooked on yoga”.  She soon enrolled in a Yoga Teacher Training here in Harford County and completed her first certification  (RYT 200) and works diligently to improve her weekly practice and study. Beth continues her full time career as a Radiologic Technologist at Mercy Medical Center in downtown Baltimore. She enjoys hands on patient care, ministering to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those she meets.

“ I believe teaching is a humbling experience,  sharing yoga practice, “letting go” through breath  and meeting people where they  are on and off the mat. I want to share this blessing.”


  Scott Powers ,  200HR Certified Yoga Instructor

Scott Powers, 200HR Certified Yoga Instructor

"I started on my yoga path about 6 years ago when it was suggested by my chiropractor to give yoga a try to help with lower back problems.  I ventured to a local gym with a Baptiste Yoga teacher as my first introduction to yoga - I was hooked!  Started exploring other styles and studios in the Harford and York County areas, and soon found that I really enjoyed hot yoga.  This phase of hot yoga helped my through some very emotional and difficult times in my life.  The next step was a 200 hour teacher training offered by Meaghan Sanchez and Harford Yoga Institute in Bel Air.  I entered into the training just wanting to "go deeper" into yoga, never intending to teach.  After I completed the required practicum teaching sessions, I was once again hooked.  I was certified in April 2017.  My style and interests in yoga are more "slow flow" and strength building with a healthy dose of anatomy.  I like to lead a relaxed class, and joking is encouraged.  I'm not the most spiritual person, but I believe in honesty, love, and damn good yoga!"
