Hi, I’m Bethany! As a 200 YTT registered teacher with specialized trainings in prenatal, postnatal, yin, and aerial yoga, I’ve dedicated years to empowering mothers on their journey. From founding my own yoga studio in 2016 to guiding hundreds through my digital programs, my path has been diverse, previously working as a corporate consultant in the US and Denmark. The most cherished role I hold is being ‘mamma’ to my two beautiful children, Elias and Emilia. It’s this profound experience of motherhood that fuels my passion for supporting women through pregnancy, birth, and beyond.
In the midst of my corporate consulting days, I found my calm in the practice of yoga. It wasn’t long before this personal practiced transformed into my life’s passion, leading me to open my own yoga studio and dive deeper into specialized trainings. However, it was becoming a mother to my two children that truly reshaped my perspective. I understood, firsthand, the overwhelming blend of joy, anticipation, uncertainty, and overwhelming love that courses through a woman during pregnancy and motherhood.
After my oldest was born, the pandemic hit and brought me back to work full time much earlier than I anticipated. Fast forward three years, and a few months after my daughter was born, I had to make the tough decision between family and my studio – and this time I chose my family. I realised my kids needed a lot of mindful attention on my part – and I wanted to be present and give this to them.
It was during this time, home with my kids and processing the changes of becoming a mother of two while simultaneously closing my studio of six years, that “Mindful Through Motherhood” took root. I realized the invaluable support that mindfulness and yoga offer during this pivotal phase of life. Drawing from my own experiences and expertise, I tailored programs specifically for mothers-to-be and new mothers, with the intention to help women find calm, strength, and connection during this beautiful, yet challenging time. I believe that by cultivating mindfulness, we not only enhance our own well-being but also create a nurturing environment for our little ones, setting the stage for a harmonious bond from the very beginning.
Join me on this journey. Together, we’ll navigate the ebbs and flows of motherhood, empowering you to embrace each moment with grace, love, and mindfulness.
At the heart of my programs is the community of women; a supportive space where shared experiences, knowledge, and bonds are nurtured, creating lifelong connections.
Through purposeful movements, I blend both safe strengthening and stretching exercises. These are tailored to support the pregnant and postpartum body.
Equally important is nurturing the mind. Our classes always begin and end with meditation and mindfulness practices, intended to cultivate calm, resilience, and support a deeper connection to yourself and your baby.
One word: Empowerment. My wish for you is to feel empowered with knowledge, resources, tips and tools to create a well-informed journey through pregnancy, birth, and motherhood.
One-size-fits-all solutions. I recognize that every pregnancy, birth, and motherhood journey is unique and we need to adapt your practice to respect this.
As a young teenager I competed in professional watersports as a wakeskater, and started cross training with yoga for mobility. I’ve been practicing yoga ever since!
Pregnancy and early motherhood can be a beautiful and transformative time in your life. It can also be a time of change and uncertainty, where a little extra support is welcomed. In my six week digital program, I have compiled all of my best tips, tools and of course yoga practices so that you feel empowered and ready for the changes to come.
