As a first time yoga student at 50 years old and dealing with back problems, I had mixed expectations for my sessions. But then I met Betsy. She is a patient, dedicated yoga teacher with a spirited personality and a will to give her students all she has. Week after week she nudged me to develop and then safely extend the reach of my yoga practice. Not only did her teachings dramatically reduce my chronic back pain, but as a coach, she inspired me to keep going week after week. I feel lucky that I was able to develop my yoga practice with Betsy Kimmel.
