Who We Are

Most of our instructors completed Yoga Teacher Training in the same class through Health Advantage Yoga Center, graduating in March of 2015. We are made up of a wide variety of experiences, both in life and yoga, but during our year of training, we formed a strong community guided by patient and caring teachers. As our training neared its end, I felt a strong desire to continue that community and pass along what our teachers had shared with us, not only in teacher training, but throughout the years of our varied yoga practices.

I chose the phrase "balance. strength. ease." because that is what yoga has come to represent for me, both on and off the mat. The physical benefits of a practice have provided me with increased balance and strength as well as increased flexibility which contributes to an ease of movement. As my practice has deepened over the years, and in large part thanks to the community I feel privileged to be a member of, those benefits have flowed into every area of my life. The concepts of turning our gaze inward through connected breath and movement, and finding contentment in the present moment have helped bring balance to the many competing areas of my life. Yoga has taught me to be much kinder to myself over the years, and that nurturing has helped me to see the inherent value in myself and others, affording me the strength to face challenges that I might otherwise have found too daunting if I were not able to rely on my practice. Yoga has moved me toward a more mindful life, affording me an ease as I learn to slow down and savor every moment rather than rushing through to get to the next thing, place, activity. I believe these are common needs and concerns in most people's lives and wanted to provide a space where everyone can feel welcome to begin or grow their practice, regardless of their level of ability.

These are some of the reasons I decided to open bedrock YOGA. I welcome you to join our community so we can share the benefits and grow our practice together.

Our Instructors

All of our instructors are certified through The Health Advantage Teacher Training Program. We limit our class sizes to provide personalized guidance for you as you grow in your practice. We believe that yoga can bring an enhanced quality of life to every practitioner and we are honored to assist you in your practice.

Elizabeth Richards BaileyElizabeth Richards Bailey (E-RYT 500)  Elizabeth committed more fully to her yoga practice in 2009 after a back injury. The physical benefits of yoga were immediately accessible, although not easy, but she was increasingly drawn to the less tangible benefits of stress relief, self-acceptance and mindfulness. She looks forward to sharing her ongoing growth with her students by providing accessible, informative classes that include a sense of fun! She continues to work toward a more mindful life where she can enjoy each moment as it happens. Elizabeth completed the Health Advantage Teacher Training in 2015 and completed her advanced teacher training at The Asheville Yoga Center where she deepened her studies in Meditation & Mindfulness, Yoga for Seniors, Yoga for Trauma, Yoga for Chronic Pain, Prenatal & Postpartum Yoga, Children's Yoga and Yin Yoga. Elizabeth is also a graduate of the Prison Yoga Project Training Program. Elizabeth holds a B.A. degree in Theatre and worked as a professional actor for 21 years.

Sheryl BassSheryl Bass (RYT 200)   Sheryl has been practicing yoga for almost 20 years and received her RYT-200 in 2012 from Health Advantage Yoga Center. Dance has been a large part of her life, so Sheryl considers her yoga style as a natural transition from alignment based ballet and modern dance, into alignment based Hatha yoga poses, breath work and mindfulness. She loves to share her mantra, "Live life, laugh often and dance like nobody is watching!" with students of all levels of yoga, young and young at heart.
