About my journey

Welcome to the world of Bethany Jewell Yoga! 

Bethany became a 200 Hour RYT Embodyoga Instructor November 2018. The Embodyoga intensive program taught a wide variety of subjects including the history of yoga, branching into Hatha yoga with a strong focus on injury free and whole body movement asana, as well as meditation, pranayama, and mantra practices. This opened doors of possibility and Bethany has since became certified in prenatal & postnatal yoga through Birthing Mama 90H Prenatal Yoga & Wellness Teacher Training Feb 2020. Additional certifications have weaved in Fertility Yoga, supporting IVF with Fertility Yoga, and Perinatal Nutrition & Ayurveda through Bliss Baby Yoga. Bethany's #1 goal is to support to women in any phase of their own journey. Bethany's pathway into woman & motherhood has led to her discovery of how much of a need there is to support and nurture all women and mothers.

In addition to yogahood, Bethany works full-time as a senior supervisor at an EHR medical software company, and is a certified wife and mother. Joking aside, don't we feel we have to provide our list of what we "do" that make us "who" we are. Having not completed a traditional college education, Bethany has been more aligned with alternative pathways of education to find her true passion. In the course of doing so, she also pursued a journey of health using alternative modalities alongside conventional medicine. Bethany believes a true picture of health uses a complementary and integrative approach to treat the "whole" person alongside healthy habits that begin at home. Yoga has provided some of these healthy tools to improve health, relationships and how to be in the world. Bethany strives to be the best version of herself, wife, and mother with daily yoga practice. Throughout her journey, she has changed and evolved several times, healing many wounds. Like many of us who come from trauma, Bethany comes from a background of grief and multiple losses at a young age that have motivated her to see the power of choosing different.

To nurture further healing this area of life, Bethany became a member of the The Institute for The Study of Birth, Breath, and Death -- A Home for All who Hold Space for the Sacred Thresholds of Birth, Breath, and Death. Facing her own experiences of grief and loss, Bethany is exploring how to support the very painful parts of life that we each have to face -- without getting stuck in our experiences of pain and trauma. Healing and living mindfully after pain and trauma is possible.

 

Through her home yoga practice and in sharing yoga through teaching, Bethany has been able to face pain in order to accept and love herself wholly to grow toward health. Bethany has experienced the power of self-healing and being well by realizing how strong and truly resilient we are and how important it is to embody a strong belief system. This is ongoing inner work and a way of life. It is Bethany's intention to share this realization and the endless possibilities it may bring for a deeper heartcentered mindbody connection to living.
