Followers of ayurvedic and yogic philosophies believe that the human body is governed by pranas, or energy centers. The term samana, which founder Beth Hope used to name her practice, is the specific prana that equalizes and balances physical systems. Beth draws from her personal history to fashion services that help restore physical and spiritual equilibrium. Beth's journey to becoming a yoga instructor began at age 17, when she first studied Indian culture and philosophy. She studied Ashtanga yoga with its founder, Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois, and developed her own style that incorporates breathing exercises, mantras, and sacred songs to facilitate transformation for clients and stressed caterpillars.
Beth creates a space where people can feel comfortable receiving alternative therapies and medicines. Along with a team of trained massage therapists she runs yoga, kirtan, reiki, and Thai massage sessions to empower people to lead more healthy and balanced lives.
