Hey, I’m Ciara, Founder + Chief Yoga Officer of Wicked Om Yoga. To say I LOVE learning and teaching about yoga, movement, and wellness is an understatement - I have more than 5,000 hours of teaching and more than 2,000 hours of training under my belt! I've studied under Katie Silcox, Ally Bogard, Abbie Galvin, Jillian Pransky, Sarah Duvall and many more incredible teachers. I love traveling and lead yoga, ayurveda and wellness retreats all over the world.

Figuratively balancing two girls under four, two dogs, a husband, and a yoga school. Literally balancing on a paddleboard.

Always learning more about: ayurveda, the divine feminine, restorative yoga, herbalism, plants, gardening, hormones, cycles, and so much more.

About your guides

Beth first began practicing yoga after college, learning quickly that its purpose was to guide her back to a feeling of home within herself each and every time she stepped onto her mat.

In 2017, Beth completed 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training, began teaching, and never looked back, completing a holistic wellness coaching certification program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in that same year. Since stepping into her soul’s work as a teacher and guide, she left corporate America, started Whole Beeing LLC, and has been teaching yoga and wellness coaching ever since.

At the start of 2020, Beth completed 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training through Indra Yoga Institute in India, where she immersed herself in the ancient teachings of the practice, trauma informed yoga, Ayurveda, and sacred Indian culture. Through teaching yoga and wellness coaching, Beth strives to facilitate self-study, or Svadhyaya in Sanskrit, as she holds space for her students and clients to inquire with themselves, live with greater intention and awareness, feel at home in their own skin, and incorporate lessons learned on the mat into their daily lives.
