Student Spotlight : Beth Ryan

PYS: When did you complete the program?

Beth: summer 2016

PYS: Tell us about how you're now living your yoga practice.

Beth: I take class every chance I get and teach 5 classes a week, but I'm mostly living my yoga practice in my relationships-- with other people and with myself.  I'm working on being more compassionate and more calm, I find myself doing pranayama breathing several times a day if I feel overwhelmed or if I just need a moment to myself!

PYS: What was the biggest change you saw in your being after the experience?

Beth: My perspective and my emotional maturity has changed.  After Costa Rica, I feel like I've been born again and I'm seeing things more clearly.  It's only the beginning and I'm excited for my future.

Beth: I'm currently running an interview series on my Facebook page called "Purpose" talking to women in Omaha about issues that are important to women.  Meeting the extraordinary women in Costa Rica helped inspire me to keep my word, finish this project, and get it out into the world.  There is much work for us women to do in the world, no more time for holding back.
