About the Facilitator(s)

I started my path in Yoga at 17 and I was drawn in a very deep way and somehow knew that this was “my way”. When I was in India I was called “an old soul” and India itself felt familiar. My path of Yoga led to self-discovery and for many years it was enough to practice Yoga.

Then in 2006, I had this realization that I needed to share the knowledge that I had learned and in fact “not to share” would be selfish. That this was part of my higher purpose. I then completed my teacher training at the Bryon Bay Yoga Centre in Australia under the supervision of John Ogilvie. I have also studied with other teachers such as Shiva Rea, Christine Selda, and Bernie Clark. I have been teaching ever since.

My intent is to bring joy and healing through the practice of Yoga – to guide people in the true connection of their inner being. I incorporate breath, sequencing and asana and mediation in my teachings. I teach a dynamic Vinyasa Flow Practice as well as Yin Yoga, Prenatal and Therapeutic Yoga. I live in Nelson, BC in the heart of amazing mountains.

About the Facilitator(s)


Christy Ceraso
Christy has been a healing arts practitioner and bodyworker for over 20 years. She has focused her studies on human development, somatic psychology, and spirituality, and is currently earning an MS in Counseling. She is the co-founder of Wild Women Awakening, a retreat program that incorporates eco-psychology and expressive art therapy. 

Christy cultivates relationships with the elements of nature, widening the scope of connections that can help us reclaim awareness, empowerment, and authentic self-expression. Her work facilitates personal insight into how our wise bodies express our deepest feelings and needs and are the foundation of our spiritual connection and renewal. Her specialties are healing past traumas that block our energy and inhibit us from fully living life, creating clarity out of confusion, and supporting the graceful navigation of challenging life transitions.

 

Beth White Mountain

Beth received her yoga teacher's training in the Sivananda Vendanta Yoga Tradition in 1997. She has also been a Massage Therapist for 20 years specializing in Ayurvedic Bodywork. She wild-crafts herbs in her area for both ceremonial and medicinal uses. Beth is a hand drummer and lover of sacred songs.

Beth’s yoga classes bring body, mind, and spirit into harmony through breath, asana and meditation. As a mother and healer Beth intimately understands how the stresses of daily life can interfere with our ability to contact the sacred that is always within our selves. Beth assists women to connect with and unfold their divine feminine selves by creating a space to go within.  It is here that we find that sacred place that always resides in ourselves but often is neglected due to external stress. 

Beth currently resides on the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota, where she teaches yoga at Sitting Bull College and has a private massage practice. She is also the co-founder of The Natural Law Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to reservation community projects that inspire relearning our connection to the natural world. She and her husband have been creating community gardens & orchards on the reservation and host gatherings for ceremony.
