Meet The Members: Say Hi to Betsy!

To strengthen our yoga community, we’re featuring one of your fellow members. This month I talked with Betsy!

☀️ In a few words, tell me who you are:

I am a librarian, cat lady, art lover, and middling yoga practitioner.


☀️ Why did you join the membership?

I have been taking Stacey’s yoga classes since I moved back to Edwardsville in 2011.  First at the post office, then the ymca, and finally through her own SSY!  I joined the membership right away because I love Stacey’s classes and I knew the value of the live classes and library of recordings.


☀️ What do you love about the membership/being a member?

Stacey offers so many pose modifications, I know I can find the right pose for what I need at that moment. I can challenge myself or be gentle to myself and there is no judgement from Stacey either way!


☀️ How has your yoga practice helped you in your life off the mat?

These classes help me maintain strength and flexibility in my joints which helps relieve some of my RA pain.


☀️ What is your favorite SSY yoga class?

I try to regularly attend the Thursday evening class since it is the perfect way to start unwinding from the work week.  I also really enjoy Jill’s Yin classes.


☀️ How has your yoga practice evolved in the membership?

My practice is certainly peaks and valleys, but I do know I will feel better mentally and usually physically after time on the mat.


It has been so fun getting to know more about Betsy and I’m sure you can relate to some of the reasons she’s here. One of her favorite classes is coming up this Sunday morning. If you haven’t tried Yin Yoga with Jill yet (or feel inspired to practice with your new friend Betsy), sign up here and we’ll see you this weekend!


See you soon!


P.S. Sign up for your next Live class (including Betsy’s favorites: Thursday evening and Sunday’s Bonus Yin class) here or use this month’s suggested class calendar, which you can find here or inside the on-demand library.
