Yoga 101


This class is taught by:

Beth Lazarus

Beth discovered her passion for yoga, wellness and fitness after raising her children and finding time to take care of herself. Beth began her fitness career in 2009 after completing a cardio dance instructor certification. The combination of cardio dance exercise and strength training helped her achieve her highest level of health and fitness. Beth realized that something was lacking in her routine and found the missing piece of the puzzle by adding the practice of yoga, achieving the perfect balance of emotional, physical and spiritual health. Beth completed her 200 hour YTT in 2014 and is currently working toward her prenatal certification. Beth is co-owner and class manager of Touchstone Yoga and Massage and general manager of Anytime Fitness, Bloomington and Evansville, IN. Beth dedicates her practice to her father, Ken Lazarus, having lived the last 11 years of his life as a quadriplegic with faith, acceptance and grace.

Nicole started integrating yoga & pilates into her fitness plan by home DVDs in high school. It wasn’t until 2012 that she took it to the level of instructor guided classes. It escalated quickly after noticing physical & mental benefits. She began taking workshops to deepen her practice and ultimately completed the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 and became Broga Yoga licensed in 2015.

Nicole has enjoyed teaching and has a drive to bring yoga to others who wouldn’t necessarily think of it as an option for cross training. She has spent the majority of her teaching hours thus far with athletes. However, is open to all classes because of Yoga’s versatility. “We could fill a room with practitioners of various ages, athletic ability, and knowledge of yoga. Queue them all in the same way, and have many, many versions flowing simultaneously. That is why Yoga is beautiful to me,” says Nicole.

Nicole resides on the south side of Bloomington with her husband, Pat, mini-yogi daughters, Noel & Lila. And a few… others- dogs, guineas, chickens, pigs and Donkey.
