Yoga first came into Beth Lipset's life from her then 2 year old daughter, who was enrolled in preschool and participated in yoga as an activity. She loved how flexible and focused her daughter was becoming and wanted to join in on the fun. She began practicing yoga at Om Sweet Om in 2003, the year the studio first opened. While yoga was initially a difficult thing to schedule into her calendar, it quickly became an element of her daily routine as her desire and need to practice increased.
In 2008, life events escalated her practice of yoga into Beth's "off the mat" life when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Yoga not only allowed her to regain her strength and flexibility after several surgeries, but allowed her to find the strength in her mind and focus on her outlook on life.
Wanting to share and give back all that yoga did for her, she enrolled in the yoga TT at OSO.
She became a Yoga Alliance RYT 200 teacher, and a YogaKids instructor, in the summer of 2011.
She loves to integrate many modern music styles within her classes and it is not uncommon to hear the Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Luther Vandross, Train or Little Feat in one session.
Beth's Mantra: "have peace in your thoughts, have peace in your words, have peace in your heart."
