Beverly has been a student of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga for over 20 years. In 1999, she received her Master of Public Health from Boston University School of Public Health where she specialized in Health Education and Public Health Program Planning. As a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES), she designed and evaluated state-wide wellness programs for the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association until just after the birth of her first son. Shortly thereafter, Beverly created and facilitated a one of a kind, family-based, faith formation program for her church and facilitated it for 10 years.
In 2012, Beverly felt called to merge her background in public health education and family ministry to promote holistic wellness and became the first certified Holy Yoga Instructor in Connecticut. Over the next three years, she brought Holy Yoga to several churches in CT and NY with the dream to someday open a Christian Holistic Wellness Yoga studio where people could come, free of judgment or denomination labels to connect with God while getting healthy and whole. That dream became a reality in October 2015.
While Beverly has practiced many different styles of yoga over the years, never has her soul been touched, healed and uplifted as when practicing Holy Yoga. Holy Yoga brings Mark 12:30 to life, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength“. There really is nothing like meeting Jesus on your mat! “The practice of Holy Yoga® has completely transformed my relationship with God and with others”.
Her certifications include: C-HYI Therapy, C-HYI 300, Yoga Alliance Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT-200), Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP), Thai Yoga Massage Levels 1 & 2, C-HYI 200, Holy Yoga Touch which incorporates massage and touch techniques into Holy Yoga classes; C-HYI Trauma-Sensitive, C-HYI Leadership, C-HYI Weights, C-HYI Yogalates, and C-HYI Yin Levels 1 and 2.
Beverly served as Holy Yoga Foundation’s Regional Director for the Northeast and currently serves as an Instructor Trainer for Holy Yoga Touch Certification and Holy Yoga 200 hr and 100 hr Instructor Training & Certification programs.
