Meet Beth

I’m Beth Bierko.  Since 1999, I have been fortunate to practice and teach Kripalu yoga. This gentle and permissive form of yoga has become foundational in my life and I enjoy sharing it as much as doing it!

Although I teach traditional hatha yoga, my classes are unique. I weave together elements of dance, songs and chants, humor, and inspirational readings to help my students find joy and create an energetic connection to themselves and others. 

As I grow older, I find my body and mind need yoga more. Physically, yoga keeps me fit, flexible and strong. Mentally and emotionally, it  helps me evolve as a person and ignites transformation in my life. Join me and see what it can do for you.

What Makes My Classes Memorable?

 Well, here is what my students tell me…

“Classes are warm & welcoming.”

“Very accessible to beginners, and yet offers challenges to experienced practitioners.”

“Such a wonderful variety of poses and practices…”

“I feel safe because Beth offers options for all bodies and chronic issues.”

“It brings me back to my center.”

Why Kripalu Yoga?

This gentle hatha yoga practice is a permissible style of physical practice, encouraging the use of props and modifications to make the poses appropriate to every body. The emphasis is not on physical feats, as much as meditation in motion that leads to mental and physical healing and spiritual awakening.
