Betsy Shilling

Yoga Instructor


Betsy first hit the gym at two years old and grew up practicing gymnastics, dance, and martial arts. While still a child, she began leading Tae Kwon Do classes, unlocking her love for empowering others through teaching. As a young adult, she experienced and witnessed great benefits from Yoga while she worked as the manager of a meditation for stress reduction research lab where she studied neurology and taught meditation. Her gifts and passions finally merged when she became a Yoga Teacher.

Betsy is a certified Yoga Tune Up® Instructor and RYT 500 HR and E-RYT 200 HR through Yoga Alliance. She also practices Vedic Thai Yoga Therapy through the Conservatory for Vedic Thai Yoga Massage and Bodywork and has a BA in Psychology.

When not teaching Yoga publicly, she pours herself into her private practice, working one-on-one with individuals of all ages and abilities. Through her unique integration of multiple yogic practices that she custom tailors to address the mind-body-spirit needs and goals of each client, she enables her clients to transform. She offers Vedic Thai Yoga Therapy sessions (benefits include releasing myofascial, muscular, and energetic blockages and improving circulation, digestion, immunity, and energy). She also teaches Private Yoga Lessons that may include asana alignment instruction, discussion of yogic philosophy, meditation, mantra, restorative yoga, breath work, suggested lifestyle modifications, and muscular and myofascial release (with Vedic Thai Yoga Assists and Yoga Tune Up® Therapy).

Deep gratitude to her most loved and inspiring teachers: Master Bong Yom, Cosetta Romani, Shiva Rea, Jill Miller, Amber Tande, Liz Doyle, Mukti Michael Buck, and of course, Sat Guru.
