As founder and director of Yoga Everyone, Samantha is grateful to be able to work in her community in public and private settings. As a therapeutic yoga and meditation teacher, Samantha is committed to supporting clients in their healing process and their personal growth and development. She has had the privilege to serve groups and individuals – children through clients at the end-of-life – with diverse challenges including insomnia, autism, anxiety, anger, depression, post-traumatic stress, chronic pain, and disease, as well as support during major life events. Samantha is interested in wisdom and compassion practices being a more sustainable part of our culture. With her work and writing, she actively seek ways to raise awareness on the benefits of these practices – at home, in schools, in business.
Samantha also works closely with Richard Miller, PhD and the Integrative Restoration Institute. Additionally, Samantha is dedicated to the study and service of those with autism and their families. She has completed post-graduate studies with UC Davis in their Professional Concentration in Autism Spectrum Disorders. She continues to work with professionals in this field, as well as teachers and parents. Samantha designed both the Yoga Care Therapeutics and Social Flexibility Yoga programs that are offered at the studio and in private settings.
She lives in Oak Park with her family where they enjoy hiking, swimming and playing in the park.

So inspired by her yoga practice and the immense impact that yoga has had on her life, Beth felt a calling to pass those benefits on to others and enrolled and successfully completed the YogaWorks 200-Hour Teacher Training under the direction of Nona Chiang, David Kim and Lainie Devina. Beth embraces all styles of yoga and believes, because of the fast paced, exciting times we are living in, that it’s important to take the time to slow down and tune in so we can bring peace, calm and clarity to our hectic lives and the world around us. Her practice employs a balance of strength, flexibility and alignment for a physical workout which calms the body and the mind.
Honoring the immense value that yoga has brought to her own life, Beth’s dream is to make yoga accessible to all by removing any barriers that may prevent people from experiencing the many benefits it has to offer.
Outside of the yoga studio, Beth finds happiness and joy spending time with her husband and 3 daughters. Beth also enjoys, the beach, live music, reading, learning, the company of her friends and family and any adventure that may take her to new and exciting places.
