Meet Bethany

Bethany Henderson Eanes is a yoga teacher, writer, and creator of The Yoga Harbor. Life has taken her from a small town outside of Pittsburgh to the beaches of Los Angeles by way of St. Louis, where she met her favorite debate partner and turned him into her husband. She is equally enthusiastic about breakfast burritos and sausage dogs as she is parallel sentence structure and external shoulder rotation.

She founded The Yoga Harbor as a community studio in Torrance, California, and now operates the business in partnership with local studios throughout the South Bay.

As a child, Bethany was always trying to fit in, but she regularly said or did the exact thing that made her stick out. People called her aggressive and opinionated, and they often asked her to just be nice. She chose yoga and meditation as a personal practice and career. It was a terrible match for such a prickly person. But, along the way, Bethany picked up some compassion, maturity, and awareness.

Bethany offers direct, functional instruction for the modern body. She is a former collegiate athlete who spent her life on the soccer pitch or in the training gym. With education including extensive yoga training, mindfulness-based stress reduction, the neuroscience of meditation, and a classical education in communication and writing, Bethany brings all of herself to every session.

Mostly, as the mother of two young kiddos, Bethany lives the talk of vibrant self-care, slow living, and a life rooted in sometimes-prickly-but-a-lot-less-so-thanks-to-yoga presence.
