Beatrice has been practicing yoga for more than ten years. She received her 200 RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) certification from Yoga Alliance, under the tutelage of her yoga mentor, Bonnie Flower, at Fit To Be Tied. Beatrice has her Reiki I certification and brings energy work, an open mind, and a full heart to every class she teaches. Currently she offers yin, restorative, and gentle flow classes at the Cooperstown studio. Her aerial teacher certification is in process. She loves yoga, her students, and believes the strongest trees grow the slowest.
For many years, I have enjoyed receiving Thai massage from Bonnie. She is skilled, intuitive, and inventive in offering the most healing practices available. Bonnie brings the same qualities of care, inquiry, and curiosity into her yoga teaching. I highly recommend her.

"I have been taking yoga classes from Bonnie for close to 20 years and have learned so much from her. She leads a wonderful practice and there is no one better than her who knows the postures and can make the necessary adjustments to your poses . I have taken classes at Kripalu and studios in many places and no one is a better yoga teacher than Bonnie.
I have also had numerous Thai massages from Bonnie and she is able to help you where you need it the most."
