Beth Siqueland- Gresch
I started practicing over a dozen years ago, initially, by many fits and starts, as life wound around in multiple directions, but the pull of the practice kept drawing me back again and again. At the beginning, this practice most of all just felt good in my body, but as I continued, my experience expanded well beyond just the physical. Yoga continues to teach me about the richness of moment by moment life experiences, and the full range of emotions that they ask me to embrace. I find this practices teaches more compassion and empathy for oneself, which in turn allows us to look at others through that same lens. I experience yoga not as a quest for perfection, but as a source of direct insights helping us to navigate our life in all its complexity.
I am so grateful for my primary teachers in expanding my teaching role, Alyssa Sullivan, my mentor, Coral Brown, through her 200 hour teacher certification, and Theresa Murphy in so many teaching workshops and intensives. There are so many additional teachers, Seane Corn, Erich Schiffmann, Shannah Green that have been dynamic and strong influences in my approach to teaching, including all the other teachers at Synergy that inspire my teaching every week.
