Grace Yoga has been Beth’s personal oasis for many years. As a pharmacist who assists people after they need medication, she has always been on the lookout for ways to help them feel good in the midst of change. Experiencing the healing powers of yoga and Pilates has revealed how it can dramatically improve your life. As a compassionate nurturer, Beth sees the members and instructors of the studio as an extension of her own family, one that she felt so passionate about that she had to make sure this oasis would continue on. “When I found out that my friend was selling the best yoga studio in town I was like ‘Oh no! I can’t lose this amazing place.’ So I put an offer on it and became a studio owner in a very short amount of time. I’m blessed to have the best team in the valley working with me, and excited for what’s ahead!”

Lucky for me, I have a passion for making people feel good.” Gaby finds great satisfaction in helping her students reach their goals and accomplishments as well as obtaining long term meaningful life changes.
