Betsy's Weekly Schedule
Betsy Delzer, RYT-200 (she/her)
Betsy has been in public education since 2001 and has been teaching yoga since 2013. Initially a teacher and more recently, a coach, Betsy serves schools in skill-training for mindfulness-based strategies for emotional intelligence, a facet of wellness services to support mental health and well-being.
She is trained in Integrative Yoga Therapy and a variety of mindfulness curricula including trauma-sensitive mindfulness and yoga. She brings a passion for “optimal functioning” with a spirit-filled class to explore dropping beneath thinking into feeling. Her love and core value is connection and together you will explore that as your practice unfolds in her guidance and care.
More from Betsy:
I am a passion-seeker and celebrator, artist, and yogi. I am a teacher, painter, and lover of the sacred ordinary. I am a writer, speaker, and educator. I practice the art of being alive and love knowing what that means for me.
I am in my twenty-first year in public education. For fifteen years I had the great honor and privilege of creating alongside children grades K-6, as an art teacher. During my tenure as a teacher, I began to pursue practices to build resilience, in hope that I could sustain passion in my roles as mother, partner, and teacher. Since 2016, after completing education in Integrative Yoga Therapy and a variety of mindfulness trainings and certifications, I have continued working in schools in a coaching role and run a consulting business. My experiences have ranged from coaching and skill-training in mindfulness-based strategies for emotional intelligence to writing and delivering professional development and thought-partnering for effective leading. Nationally and internationally, I have led professional learning and spoken on the following topics: Restorative Justice/Practices; foundations of mindful living; mindful movement in the classroom; mindful leadership; creating a culture of belonging; building the competencies of emotional intelligence; and on the intersection of mindfulness and racial/healing justice.
