|BIKRAM HOT YOGA 26&2 WITH BEA|
|Monday, 11/16, 6:00 - 7:30 pm |
|My name is Beatriz Gutierrez and I originally come from the Canary Islands of Spain. I have been practicing yoga for over fifteen years.|
After finishing my degree in agricultural engineering and working in that field for a couple of years I traveled to the northeast of Scotland and lived for five years in an Ecovillage and Spiritual Community called Findhorn where I apprenticed as a potter. I found meaning, vocation and learned about sustainable living and meditation.
Being a potter requires many hours sitting and that's why I maintain the discipline of my yoga practice, also it helps me to deepen in my creativity.
I intend to teach and practice my yoga with the same devotion and dedication that I put into my ceramic craft. My pots and my yoga teachings intend the same thing: I want to inspire those around me in a positive way. To help raise consciousness, awareness, love and compassion.

|Welcome Janet to In Balance Yoga and Blacksburg!|
|New Teacher Bio and Introduction|
|Welcome Janet Krones to In Balance Yoga and Blacksburg! Janet will be teaching a few Saturday classes for Maureen, a Gentle Flow call for Erin, Flow & Restore for Ivi and this Sunday's vinyasa class for Thea. Janet has been teaching at Sol Yoga in Frederick, MD since 2010 and completed her 500 hour YTT at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA. We hope Janet will be on the regular schedule asap. |
Janet (RYT-500) started her yoga journey years ago on a whim. She has since learned that yoga, like all things in life, is a process, one that requires patience, persistence, and commitment, to the breath and the way we lead our lives. She now takes her yoga with her on all of her journeys in life, from the safe confines of the yoga studio to the amazing expance of the mountains, the desert, and the sea. She enjoys sharing her joyful experiences, encouragement and humble gratitude as she invites her students to embrace the human experience.
