Beccah BartlettCo-Founder

Based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Beccah oversees Yogamour Global. Beccah discovered yoga at a young age from her aunt who was a yoga teacher. She didn't embrace yoga until she was 22 however, when she began to take classes at a local studio. The gates opened and yoga became a complete healing process, both physically and mentally. Deciding to explore the world and her love for yoga, she ended up volunteering at a school in a “slum” of India. The children were restless so Beccah involved the entire school in a morning practice of yoga before each day began, which did wonders for the kids’ attention spans. It seemed to Beccah that she had found her place. Upon returning to the U.S., she decided the next chapter of her life would be yoga teacher training. The training (RYT 200-hour) only confirmed that she made the right choice.

Her study of yoga has been influenced  by teachers such as Seane Corn, Shiva Rae, Sarah Ivanhoe, Faith Hunter, Kathryn Budig, Coby Kozlowski and Rosey Mann as she's developed a unique style of playful vinyasa to open both heart and mind. 

Beccah continues to deepen her practice and has been amazed by the doors it has opened. Her ultimate passion is to intertwine her yoga community with volunteerism.

Maggie Lile

Yoga Teacher
Maggie is a certified Vinyasa Yoga teacher. Looking at the asana practice as a continuous exploration of breath, body, mind and spirit, Maggie’s mission is to give practitioners the opportunity to think and move in harmony with their surroundings. It wasn’t until a car accident in 2011, when feeling broken and bruised, that yoga became an integral part of her life. It was a combination of Iyengar Yoga and the Sivananda Ashram that initially gave her tools to heal her physical body and reconnect to her spirit. She has since then grown to enjoy a more vigorous Vinyasa flow and creates flows that balance effort and ease, which are challenging and grounding, focused and fun!

Influenced by teachers on both the east and the west coast, Ana pursued her 200-hour yoga teacher certification at Kripalu School of Yoga in the Berkshires, Massachusetts in 2013. Landmark education, igloo life coaching trainings, libraries of personal development books and company goal coaching exercises allowed Ana to begin goal coaching co-workers, friends, corporate teams and international leadership groups.

Shelley S. Johnson

 

Shelley has been supporting us for the past four years as a return volunteer.

"Off the mat or on the mat, Yogamour Global’s offerings are memorable and life changing. Experiencing other cultures directly with the people of a local village or community provides a deeper understanding that the gifts we share are treasures. Those gifts might be fleeting like a smile, or more lasting like a pair of new glasses. Either way, they bring meaning to the concept that we are all an integral part of the world we call home."
