Elevate, Inspire

“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. ... We need not wait to see what others do.”  - Gandhi

We commit to personal growth and self-awareness so that we may support and inspire. We are a hive of empowered, imperfect people committed to contributing to the overall well-being of others. As we rise to our full potential take our hands and share our journey.

Love More

May we learn to see the storms as opportunity for growth. May we learn to see with eyes of love. May we extend ourselves patience and kindness for our imperfections. May we speak freely from open hearts. May we stop severing ourselves with the duality of good and bad, and accepting our whole self so that we may accept others completely.

Elevate, Inspire
Holistic Health

Holistic Health

We base our methods on looking at the Koshic view of the human being. Treating health issues in all 5 layers of a person for a more holistic approach to optimal whole body, mind, spirit and emotional well-being. People are often intimidated by yoga phrases and terminology, but it is quite simple. The five Kosha are just one way of breaking down the layers of a person. Breaking the layers down in this way can be an effective tool in locating problems that need to be addressed to find optimal well-being. Bee You Yoga and Wellness seeks to help a person journey through the layers of the self in a safe and supportive environment so that people can follow their path to bringing these layers into balance.

Physical - Energetic - Thinking Mind - Intuitive Mind - Spirituality/Connection

Community

At Bee You Yoga & Wellness we believe that community is the foundation for a balanced life. Our hive is stronger when we come together to support each other. We have joined with our sister company Bee Happy Wellness Inc, a 501(3)c not for profit, to build hive memberships where those more fortunate can give fully tax deductible donations to provide yoga and holistic health services to those in need. Imagine a world where everyone can afford holistic health services!

Remove Barriers

Remove Barriers

We are not sheep or cattle. Fences and boundaries were not created for us but by us. We have created boundaries to separate us by religion, race, sex, country, age... if we can find a difference, we can find a barrier. Just as parents we find it upsetting when our children fight, so too should we find it disturbing when we as children of the earth fight. It is time for us to share love not hate. If the human race wishes to evolve, we must learn from our past mistakes.

Bee You Yoga and Wellness is pleased to host weekly Zumba classes with certified zumba instructor Christie Murillo.

“I’ve been a ZIN™ Member since Sep 2010 and I absolutely love teaching Zumba classes. The reason is simple: Every class feels like a party! “

Perfect For

Everybody and every body! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on.

How It Works

We take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.

Benefits

A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.

BARRE

A full-body workout combining strength training, cardio and mindfulness that will leave you feeling balanced in body and empowered from within.

Bee You Yoga and Wellness - Yoga Therapy, Yoga, Yoga for anxiety, Yoga for depression, Yoga for recovery, y12sr, donation based yoga & meditation for everyone, kids yoga, BARREBarre is for everyone. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to exercise. Instead, we empower each individual to modify postures and develop body awareness for lasting results.

Our signature approach to teaching gives clients a rewarding endorphin high and a deep muscle burn—without pain in areas of the body prone to injury.

Barre delivers a full body workout using only low-impact movements. With our team of experts—doctors, physical therapists, and anatomy specialists—we developed our signature 3-step sequence to produce a strong and balanced body.

THE BASICS

STEP 1 | HOLD Align the body, build mind-body connection, and engage your muscles.
STEP 2 | MOVE SMALL Work deep in the muscle without compromising your form to push through plateaus, and build strength.
STEP 3 | MOVE BIG Build functional strength for everyday activities, tone your muscles, and energize your entire body.

Buti Yoga

Buti Yoga

Buti yoga is a unique practice, known for it's cardio-intensive bursts of tribal dance, primal movement, and conditioning. Created by celebrity trainer Bizzie Gold, it's designed to offer a calorie-scorching, body-sculpting, and dynamic yoga practice.

The word ‘buti’ is a Marathi Indian term for “the cure to something that’s been hidden away or kept secret.” The movement involved in a Buti class is designed to help everyone develop body confidence. It will help you fall in love with your workout, break through emotional and physical barriers, and transform your body. 

Buti yoga is a physically-demanding sweat session. Yet, it’s approachable for all-levels. Just as in our regular yoga classes, you’ll begin where you are and grow at your own pace. 

In a Buti class, you can expect explosive movements, a quick pace, killer ab sequences, and lots of upbeat music - there’s nothing dainty about this practice! However, it will allow you to kick all that repetitive weight lifting, sit-ups, and elliptical work to the curb. The infectious group energy, filled with hoots, hollers, and lots of movement, will carry you through the experience. 

HOW IS BUTI UNIQUE?

In Bizzie Gold’s creation, the signature strengthening approach is called Spiral Structure Technique (SST). The major movements you’ll do in Buti are designed to activate all of the abdominal muscle groups. While most crunches and ab exercises only target the front part of the core, the reality is our abdomen is cylindrical. This method will build lean, strong muscles.

The movement involved in Buti yoga focuses on removing obstacles to our first and second chakras. The power that originates in these chakras often gets muted, resulting in tight hips and closed minds. Buti yoga follows the lead of many cultures - such as Native American and African tribes, that have dance rituals using hip and pelvic spiraling. So in Buti, you’ll sweat with intention, seeking both physical and emotional benefits.

Guide to your inner wisdom

I began practicing yoga in 2000, at a time when I felt very overwhelmed by the  responsibilities of my life. I felt I had lost myself, and I was searching. Yoga coaxed me from  feeling bound in my body to feeling an ease of movement and openness that I had not felt in  years, it guided me towards a sense of purpose and direction at a time when I was feeling lost,  and it led me from believing I was powerless to realizing my own strength and potential .     The practice of yoga continues to help me uncover the gentle wisdom of my body,  mind, and soul. I am a yoga teacher so that I can share the joys I have found. Through teaching,  I hope to help people advance along their own pathways of self-discovery, wonder and freedom.    Namaste

Nature Lover

I love nature! The variety of textures, colors and unlimited landscapes; the brilliance of a mountain sunrise greeting the new day, or luscious oranges, reds and yellows of a sunset, these experiences inspire my yoga practice. I feel restored that all is well in my world, I am connected to my inner voice and to my community. My passion for yoga began over 30 years ago, transforming my sense of confidence and well being. Yoga has been a stable in my life. I have learned to trust myself, explore opportunities and transform my body, mind and spiritual connection. Guiding individuals on their journey to accept and trust themselves is one reason I teach. As mindful coach, I use tools of meditation, Soul Language, Reiki, and card reading to explore broader aspects of daily life. Together, let’s build a community filled with joy and smiles! Bee you in all your glory and let your inner light shine! Namaste, Alissa

somebody who makes everyone feel like somebody

My love of fitness started when my mom popped in a Jane Fonda tape and said "Let's do this!" Since then, I have been hooked on keeping my body strong and able. However, after several marathons, muddy runs, fitness challenges and so on, my mind was never at ease. And then I met Yoga. It is through Yoga that I breathed for the first time! Nourishing my mind and spirit made me a better, happier person. It was because of this change in me that I sought out teaching or rather, sharing this practice with others. My classes integrate the ideas and asana of yoga to help my students feel great inside and out. I have trained with Diane Bondy (Yoga For ALL Shapes Sizes and Abilities), received a certification in Yin, Chair Vinyasa, and currently working toward my 500 hour training. I believe community is key and everyone should feel welcomed. Yoga is unique in that it brings people together but always honors the individual. Every life has a divine purpose and my wish is that you embrace yours! One of the mottos I live by..."Be somebody who makes everyone feel like somebody." Hope to see you in class!

Family Man

I classify myself as “an accidental yogi”. Any long term relationship has its ups and downs and in a particularly challenging part of my 20+ year marriage I started yoga simply as an activity to do with my wife; as something for us to do together and reconnect. Very quickly however I found deep personal meaning in my practice. I am most grateful for the fact that through yoga I have come back to a regular meditation practice. Much research has been done to suggest that regular meditation is one of the best tools which can be employed for long term happiness. I know this to be true with myself. Our lives are so busy now, so over subscribed, it is all too easy to get caught up in the stress or distraction of daily living. Through mediation I find a way to “pause my inner dialogue”. Through practice, more and more I am able to step back and observe my thoughts, feelings, and emotions rather than be ruled by them. More and more I can acknowledge that “I am not this thought” “I am not this body” “I am not this feeling”. I can observe rather than react. Through practice I am able to connect more and more with my true self, a quiet watcher behind it all. Another passenger on this journey of life. For me this is a life long study, a life long journey. One of progress, not perfection.

Positive Energy Guide

I stumbled upon yoga late in life. With a nudge from friends, I received my yoga teacher certificate from Sumadhi Sun in 2014. I am as surprised as you are. This piece of paper was just a green light on an infinite journey. Like you, I continue my search for compassion, strength and ultimate love. You and I may be on the same path for just a moment – yet, in a class we can create positive energy toward physical, mental and spiritual growth. We can listen to joyous bees together. Thank you, Catherine

Spiritual Counselor

I’ve combined my yoga practice with my skills as a Licensed Associate Counselor, and I strive to assist others in finding their own path toward healing and wellness. Yoga has taught me how to connect my spiritual, emotional, and physical self, and I am passionate about helping others find that connection. My yoga practice is based in a grounding, mindful approach, which has helped me to find that inner stillness that I bring from my mat into other aspects of my life; and I aim to help others do the same.

Firecracker Gym Rat

I have been a gym rat for most of my life and a firecracker by nature. I love athleticism and sharing that passion with others. Everyone has a different body and everyone has a different fitness level so you will not find any judgment in my class. What you will find is a very routine with modifications, if needed, and encouragement to learn and grow in strength. I teach a variety of classes which include power vinyasa yoga, Yoga Bootcamps, functional fitness and core workouts, HIIT and I am excited to bring Barre to BeeYou Yoga and Wellness. See you in the studio!!

Joel

Physical Scientist

Joel found yoga in 2015 as a way to help relieve pain from a long term back injury. "It made my body feel good and my mind even better." After developing a regular yoga practice, he became fascinated by the world of natural therapies such as lifestyle, movement, nutrition, stress/relaxation, and their effects on overall health. Joel completed his RYT-200 at Summus Body Mind in Morristown, NJ under Jessie Shapiro & Brittany Mesutti with a strong emphasis on both Vinyassa & the Ashtanga path. Off the mat, you can find Joel deepening his knowledge by studying the science of the body, playing music, or spending as much time as possible outside in nature exploring the universe.

Crazy Dog Lady

I grew up in New Zealand, the emerald paradise at the bottom of the planet. At 9 years old I had a school teacher that was wise enough to know that teaching hyper 9-year old’s yoga and meditation made her job easier. Since then I have tried every version of yoga I come across and loved them all for their differences. I have learned from so many beautiful people and love to pass on their combined wisdom. I have a full crazy life with 3 teenagers and 4 dogs (Yes, I am the crazy dog lady). I love photography, travel, SHOES, drones, throwing knives, hiking, dancing, music and most of all making people smile. I am also trained in Myofascial Release Technique and reiki and I am currently studying to become a certified yoga therapist. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my journey with you. “The journey is the destination!” Let go and believe! Bee happy!

Judgment Free Zone

It is important to remember that like so many things this information is based on information first studied many centuries ago. Since then it has undergone many translations. You may find one translation that works precisely for you and your unique personality and it may be very different from what someone else finds beneficial. Try to refrain from judging one another or enforcing “your truth” on others. We need to practice more love and compassion and spend less time judging what confuses or is different. There is a different fit for every person. Just as we all have different taste in shoes we can all have different taste in yoga. Fortunately there are so many options to choose from! There is no such thing as universal acceptance and if there was the world would be boring! Welcome peace and empathy into your life over judgement and fear! Namaste peeps! Bee Happy!!!

I am not your guru

There are no guru's, queen bees or otherwise superior beings at Bee You Yoga and Wellness. We are a gathering of people looking to share and learn from one another no matter where you are in life's journey.

Hi I'm Shelly, I'm a certified yoga teacher,  yoga therapist, Licensed Massage & Bodyworker, Y12SR leader... and the list continues for this eternal student and totally faulty human! I am not a guru or the boss. Yoga does not have hierarchy it is about people coming together to learn from each other on their journey. Everything we do at Bee You Yoga and Wellness is a suggestion for you to explore. 
Yoga philosophy is ancient, over 5000 years old. It has taken many translations & can be intimidating to start. It is important to remember that though the philosophy is ancient most of the poses were developed in the last 100 years. Yoga is not about the poses. Yoga literally means union. Union of body & mind, body & breath, to connect with your true self, with your higher power, or simply Union of all of our parts of ourselves including the parts of us that may still generate emotions of shame. The purpose of practicing yoga can be different for each individual & can change from day to day. It is important to remember the poses are simply one of the tools we use to explore and learn. We move and breath to focus on reconnecting with our physical body. This is just another tool we use to bring us into the present moment. Much of human suffering can be linked to a disconnection to present moment.
Please note that Y12SR or any of the therapies Bee You Yoga and Wellness offers are just tools, they are not a replacement for traditional therapies, medical advice or 12 step programs, however it is most effective when used together with other tools you are finding useful in your journey.
My yoga journey is a story of learning to accept the past as part of the building blocks that make me the person I am now. To find love and forgiveness for myself and my mistakes. To find gratitude in the everyday. To find time to take peaceful moments in the madness that is life with 3 kids & 4 crazy dogs. To share my journey and help others find peace, community, love and yoga.

Come share my yoga journey with me!

“Let go and believe!”

Come fly with us in aerial, slow down in restorative, party in rock flow or simply come for a coffee and some company.
