ABOUT YOUR LEADERS:

Bethany McCorkle, RYT-200, E-RYT 500

I have been a student of yoga circa 2004.  My 200-hr teacher training was completed with Jacqui Bonwell in 2011 and in June 2015, I completed an advanced 500-hr training with Ame Wren and Kevin Courtney through Boston Yoga School.    I continue to study yoga regularly with many gifted mentors along the Northeast Coast aiming to blend the best of the Vinyasa, Power Yoga, Ashtanga and Iyengar systems into an eclectic flow practice.    I am known to deliver a strong, balanced and accessible approach to the yoga practice enriched with specific but supportive functional alignment.  I’m most interested in expanding consciousness and encouraging students towards developing a devoted practice that enables perspective, insight, joy and well-being.

 Cathleen Wasielewski, RYT-200, E-RYT 500, YACEP

Formal yoga training began in early 2011 and through a magnificent evolution has brought me on a journey of gratitude.  I have been so blessed to study with such teachers as Shiva Rea, Roberto Lim, Seane Corn, Todd Norian, Anodea Judith, Josh Summers, Bernie Clark, Francesca McCartney and Johanna Bell as well as so many more.  Each has given me a light of perspective on the value of what it means to be a Spirit on this human journey. 

My teachings have evolved through a steady growth of both Vinyasa and Yin Yoga - first with a masculine and disciplined approach to the access of Self through body awareness and now to dancing with the Shakti feminine elements that so serve the wholeness of the new culture we are growing with.  The union of the two is Yoga and life in its fullest sense.  It is a guide and reflection of our evolution and for our evolution. 

I have been teaching in a variety of venues and yoga studios in the greater Portland area since 2011.  The summer of 2016 brought me to a beautiful location in Vancouver, BC Canada to host my first yoga retreat.  It is one of my favorite environments for teaching as the immersion into yoga for the student held in loving space is evolutionary.  The awareness that I might hold the space for the growing heart of another in practice has allowed me to know that the greatest purpose one can have in this incarnation is connection and oneness.  Love is the guiding principle.  

The sphere of yoga is immeasurably infinite.  It is my belief that each person penetrates the sphere with the practice that resonates most sweetly with their own experiences of who they are.  This entry point may be through asana practice, meditation, or the breath noticed in the daily challenges of living.  We find our yoga in daily conversations, the ability to ground ourselves in the midst of struggle amongst our human family and in the many moments of strengths that surprise us.  The recognition of the yoga as union (yoking) of all things is the practice of awakening that we are here for.
