Meet Our Teachers
Beth Marek is the owner and Director of Teacher Training at Blue Lizard Yoga. Beth is an ERYT-500 (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500 hour level) through Yoga Alliance. She completed her first 200 hour Hatha yoga teacher training from Yoga Yoga in Austin, TX in 2010. She then went on to complete a second 200 hour Anusara yoga teacher training in 2012 with Mandy Eubanks and Charly Pivert and a 300 hour Alignment and Vinyasa based teacher training with Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker in 2014.
She is passionate about teaching her students to care for their bodies so that they become stronger and more vibrant as they age. Therefore, in her classes, you can expect challenging and intelligent sequences that will expand your limits so that you find yourself in poses that you never thought were possible. You will breathe, work hard, learn a lot, rest fully, and, of course, have fun. She believes that a regular yoga practice can empower each of us to discover our own inner strength, light, and beauty.
Yoga has always been a passion of Monica's. She started teaching April 1, 2001 after joining, and attending classes at Golds gym. She has held certifications with Safax, IFTA, USA Gymnastics, and currently has her RYT-500 with Yoga Alliance.
Monica's philosophy is that yoga is for everyone, and that yoga can improve the quality of your well-being through the practice of asana and meditation. Her approach is an alignment based yoga with a focus on breath and motion. She believes yoga should be fun, and enjoys teaching multilevel classes!
