Meet the Owner & Creator of Historic Yoga.

 

Bethany newly opened the Historic Yoga Studio located in Central Massachusetts because there is nothing quite like this here. Historic Yoga is a unique studio offering traditional and modern yoga classes and holistic practices. Historic Yoga takes pride in being able to provide a space for the community to reconnect to ancient wisdom that focuses on respecting and living in harmony with nature.

It has taken years to allow room for this new space to become possible. Bethany believes wholeheartedly that she has been sent on this path to make a difference in the lives of others seeking. Using a gentle, heartcentered approach, Bethany has been privileged to share her years of formal and self education with those who can benefit from the powerful practices of Yoga and Ayurveda. With a strong belief of all things being possible and nothing is out of reach, Bethany aspires to instill hope into the depths of your soul. 

She describes how she hopes people feel upon opening the doors at Historic Yoga- a place to get away, breathe more deeply, and come back to life refreshed and more balanced- When we make time for this in our lives, we put our best feet forward and show up for our families, work, loved ones, and our life's purpose.

Saying goodbye to corporate america in 2021 allowed Bethany to focus on her health, home, and growing her family. The last 10 years have been gradual changes to make Historic Yoga possible. Bethany made sacrifices and created change to be clear on the kind of work she was meant to give her energy to, where Historic Yoga could grow from an idea to becoming a reality.

Bethany joyfully looks forward to working together in the studio or virtually and honoring the place where you are on your journey.

While viewing herself as "always a student", Bethany has been studying yoga for over 10+ years, and formally trained since 2018. Beginning her teaching journey in 2019 opened many doors for what was to come. When struggling to grow her family, Bethany incorporated Ayurveda (the sister science to yoga) into her life and became officially certified to help others in 2021. Holistic health consultations have been a supplement to her yoga teachings ever since. Read more on the About page.

Tanessa Celentano
Yoga Teacher
Flow with TLC

As a former kickboxing instructor, it became real to me one day that I would need to find a better way to help my body age safely. I had dabbled in yoga for decades, but it wasn't until I stumbled on Toby Schoeneberger's style of teaching that I fell in love. After training with her for 2 years, I began teaching in 2015... and have never looked back. 

 

Yoga brings us back to where it all began. When we start out in this life, we only know breath. It is our most primal need. 

 

Yoga = Breath. 

 

If you can breathe, you can do yoga. 

 

My goal is to help make yoga approachable for all. My teaching style is light-hearted and authentic, doing away with any fussiness or formalities and just getting to the heart of what you and your body truly need. 

 

Having been in and out of physical therapy for well over 20 years, I am a stickler for safe alignment within postures. I teach everything from gentle/beginner to power vinyasa, but you will always hear me encouraging props, modifications, and any other means of supporting your body with integrity and respect. 

 

We only get one beautiful vessel to journey through this life with... let's honor it and help it thrive. I look forward to meeting you on your mat! 

 

Come flow with TLC for her monthly Saturday pop-up classes!

Liv Lozano
Reiki 1 & 2 Practitioner
A Fairy's Touch

  • Instagram

Alivia Lozano, also known as Liv, is the creator of a small business called, A Fairy’s Purpose. She started off by selling original pieces of jewelry and candles, made from broken and vintage items. Her little shop is known as A Fairy’s Treasure. She created this shop to bring joy and help give items a new purpose.

Alivia is very spiritually open. She has been ever since she was young. After creating physical items, she wanted to do something more. She wanted to help, not only with physical treasures, but also help people who seek to feel less heavy; people who are looking for a purpose of their own. She ended up getting certified in Reiki level 1 and 2, so she can help others to relax, feel lighter, and release the heaviness they need
to. Reiki is a hands-on healing practice, using Universal energy to help balance the energy in the human body, and release the heaviness that is stuck. Alivia uses Reiki energy as a foundation in her energy practice. Her specific energy work can involve hands-on healing, hovering for those who prefer no touch, and crystals.
 Crystals are very powerful on moving energy in the body.

 

Liv's energy work entails connecting with each receiver who has a session with her, so each receiver has a different and unique experience. Her Energy practice is known as A Fairy’s Touch. You can book sessions with Liv right at Historic Yoga via her email afairyspurpose@gmail.com.

About Yoga Nidra:

 

Candlelight Yoga with Yoga Nidra
This class is designed to help reduce stress and calm the body and mind for deep relaxation. We will begin with gentle yoga postures, using props to passively stretch and open the body. Class will end with a 20 min. Yoga Nidra practice. Yoga Nidra is a method of withdrawing the senses to reach the deepest recesses of the subconscious mind, where you then plant an intention (sankalpa) for transformation and healing.

My name is Cosley and I am The Perky Pigeon! Certified in Hatha style yoga, kids, prenatal, and restorative yoga, I have been practicing for many years and teaching officially since 2019. As a practitioner I get so much joy out of watching Yogi's surprise themselves on the mat! We have an absolutely judgment free zone where all levels are welcome and encouraged to do their best work, whatever that looks like for them, at that moment, on that day. I am still so surprised at the amount of people afraid to get on a yoga mat. I feel like it is my duty as a practitioner to break the stigma! Bring your body, as it is, to yoga and let it do its thing. I promise to keep you safe on the mat while you explore all the possibilities that your body is ready to unfold!
