She:kon! Hello! My name is Ciara Jean Beaton; I am a Kanien'kehá:ka woman and member of Lower Mohawk First Nation. I have been teaching yoga since 2011 and practicing avidly for two decades. Beyond my first 200 hour Power Yoga Teacher Training in 2011, I have also completed certifications for Yin Yoga, Level 1 Prenatal, Advanced Vinyasa, Level 1 Thai Massage and Acro Yoga {plus countless hours of non-YTT continuing education}.

 

With a deep love for self nourishment, mindfulness and movement, I am dedicated to offering a lighthearted, creative and empowering practice for you to fall in love with...a practice that is deliberately designed to encourage you to heal, connect with yourSelf and awaken to exactly how amazing your body, mind and spirit are meant to feel. Weaving sweet pieces of my indigenous culture together with the  traditional teachings of yoga and the importance of functional range conditioning, I strive to provide a warm, safe and nurturing space to all ~ from the beginner yogi to the avid practitioner, young or aging like fine wine, wispy or curvy ~ no matter your age, identity or size...you belong here. 

When I'm is not on my mat, I love every opportunity to spend quality time with my loved ones, crafting walking barefoot surrounded by the beauty of Mother Earth, getting creative in the kitchen, snuggling with my fur babes {calico and two buns}, sipping coffee, splashing in puddles and {especially nowadays} enjoying a really sweet Netflix binge here and there.
