Elizabeth Hurley known as Betsy Elizabeth (BE) to many at the Yoga Center of Cape Cod is a 200 hrs. RYT with Yoga Alliance. In 2007, she embarked on her yogic path. Under the guidance of Zack Dixon of Quiet Mind Yoga, BE received her 200 hrs. Yoga certification in May of 2012. Today, she continues on her journey of self-study; as well as, continuing her education by attending numerous trainings and workshops.
She considers herself a guide more than a teacher encouraging her participants to honor their practice – to listen, to love and to be. A meditative theme is woven through each of her sessions beginning with the breath and finding a sense of stillness, slowly building to the physical asana and gently returning to a calm state in savasana. BE actively encourages her fellow practitioners to follow their own paths and to be kind with themselves; as well as, others on and off their mats.
Abby Rhoads teaches Vinyasa yoga with an emphasis on strengthening the
core and focusing on the connection of breath to movement. She has
been teaching and practicing for over 12 years. Abby’s yoga is
inspired only by her studies with yoga masters, including Sivananda,
Sadie Nardini, Coral Brown, Tao Porchon-Lynch, and others, but also
through her long time background in classical and modern dance. As a
result of the combination of her influences, her classes bring
movement and flow into each of the postures with an emphasis on
becoming more connected with the body through practice. Abby also
teaches yoga and mindfulness to high school students where she strives
to help guide her students to cultivate an openness of mind and
presence in the moment. RYT 200 certified with Yoga Alliance.
Colleen’s passion for yoga lies in the versatility of the practice. Its ability to cultivate strength, grace, meditation, and playfulness has had her hooked since the first time she stepped on her mat. She completed her 200-hr certification at South Boston Yoga in 2013 with Ame Wren and David Vendetti. Her classes provide a space for welcoming mental and physical clarity, and offer thoughtful sequencing and alignment of the body.
