Bethany Rallis is a 200 RYT certified yoga instructor. She completed her Level I and Level II teacher training with Baron Baptiste in 2010 and 2011. Since completing her yoga teacher training, she has taught with and sought mentorship from Baptiste Certified teachers in Rhode Island and Northern Virginia. She completed Art of Assisting through the Baptiste Institute in 2016. She taught and led yoga assistant trainings at a Baptiste Affiliate Studio, Dancing Mind Yoga CrossFit and Cycle, for 4 years before moving to Blacksburg. She began teaching and found her new yoga home at In Balance Yoga soon after moving to Blacksburg last fall. Bethany sees yoga practice as an avenue for creating change in our bodies, minds, and in our lives. She was drawn to the Baptiste Practice for the empowerment and authenticity in the practice. Through her yoga practice, she has learned how to face challenges on her mat by modifying poses, when necessary, and accepting the support of her teachers and her community to challenge her to accomplish things she never thought she could. As a teacher, her intention is to encourage her students to work with their unique bodies as she supports them in challenging beliefs they hold about what they can do on their mat through a rigorous practice.
