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.
