Beth Manos Brickey, Sun Sand & Ayurveda team leader

Beth Manos Brickey is the face and force behind Tasty Yummies, a top lifestyle destination for readers with a wide range of dietary challenges who want to feel good, take control of their health and eat well. Bringing personal experience, knowledge, empathy and humor to the goal of living and eating well with intolerances and allergies, Beth is a firm believer in the power of foods that heal. An adventurer, an artist and a yoga instructor, Beth is the best kind of teacher, one who inspires you, and then shows you how.

Beth teaches mindful, dynamic, flow-based vinyasa classes with a strong awareness on alignment. Her flow classes focus on technical precision with a lot of information to take your yoga practice to the next level. Though her classes contain a lot of movement and have a strong flow, you can expect to find the pace slowed down enough that you can comprehend the cues of precise alignment and breath awareness, to properly link the movement to your breath and reap the full benefits of your practice.

Beth received her advanced teaching credentials (500 hr RYT) through American Yoga School in Venice Beach, CA under James Brown’s instruction.
