Meet Your HEAL Yoga Instructors: 

Bethany (500YT)


Bethany became an instructor in 2010 and has enjoyed sharing her yoga experience with the community. She teaches Beginner, Hatha, Vinyasa, Power and Yin yoga and Yoga Nidra, with a strong focus on getting to know the self through practice.  Bethany started practicing yoga in college as a way to get exercise without overdoing it as she struggled with severe asthma. What she found was much more than physical: her seasonal depression lessened through savasana and a regular meditation practice, and she felt a lot stronger both physically and spiritually. 

Bethany completed her 500 hour training through a Yoga Alliance program at the Lotus Wellness Spot in 2018, where she deepened her knowledge and practice of Ashtanga, Trauma Yoga, Ayurveda, Kids Yoga, advanced anatomy and asanas, Yoga Nidra, and Yoga for the Individual.  Bethany created the Yogis Of Ogden, and she owns HEAL Yoga Studio along with Hippie Skin and GloHo Photography with her husband, Taylor.

Heather JP (200YT)

Within yoga she found many things, but ultimately it was the perfect yin to her yang personality. She holds a 200 Hour E-RYT from Yoga Fit and has 10 years experience as a yoga instructor. Heather is a creative, fun and authentic instructor with a compassion-centered teaching style.

Kaylie (200RYT)  

Kaylie - HEAL Yoga - Ogden's Premiere Outdoor Yoga Studio

Yoga found Kaylie when she was a teenager when she was going through a really dark place in her life and it's been an amazing tool for her ever since. Yoga helps her connect with God, with herself and with others and she loves using it to serve in the community. She loves the healing power that comes through movement and the energy flow that Yoga has to offer. Yoga helps you remember to BE YOU!! She teaches a wide variety of styles including Vinyasa, Yin, meditation, and others!

 

Kristie (200RYT)  

Kristie Instructor - HEAL Yoga StudioKristie earned her 200RYT with emphasis on Astanga Vinyasa with asana, pranayama, and meditation practice in April 2019. She also holds a certificate in mindfulness-based stress reduction from McKay-Dee Behavorial Health. Kristie began practicing martial arts as a way to work through stress and anxiety. When she sustained an injury that limited regular workouts, she turned to yoga. She struggled at first watching others in class and comparing herself, and she pushed herself in a way that was incongruent with the purpose of yoga. It wasn't until she completed her RYT training that she realized yoga is not just a physical practice, but a mental practice as well. 

 Kristie is passionate about helping you find YOUR practice, YOUR breath, and YOUR mindfulness.  Her other interests include spending time with her 3 children, hiking, camping, golfing and paddleboarding.
