Bess O’Keeffe’s first encounter with yoga was coming across lion pose in a yoga book on her mom’s bookshelf as a child and thinking yoga must be very strange. She learned it wasn’t just about funny faces when she took a class to accompany her dance training in high school. Her love for it was born in 2014 when she started taking classes regularly. She discovered that while it made her body feel good, she was surprised by the mental and emotional effects and it was the practice of yoga that gave her the peace and direction to follow some of her other career pursuits. Bess did her 200hr yoga teacher training in 2015 and started teaching in the same year. She completed her prenatal yoga teacher training through Beloved in 2019.
Bess is married to a redhead, and they have two “ginglets” (redheaded boys) together.
