Beasley spends her free time outdoors in the woods running with her dog or flying one of her many hawks or Falcons as a federally licensed falconer.
"You cannot stay on the summit forever, you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw a higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know."

I found yoga in 2010 in Miami, FL while perusing my career as a professional marine mammal trainer. I received my degree in zoology from Michigan State University, Go State! Back when I started yoga, it was only a form of fitness, but now yoga is a way of life. Since finding my second passion, I love teaching new yogis how to open up their bodies, leaving them feeling physically and mentally rejuvenated after practice. Today, the time I spend off the mat is filled with training birds of prey as a falconer and running with her furry, daughter-dog. I was certified in my 200-hour yoga teacher training through the Asheville Yoga Center as well as through Yoga Alliance.
