Bethany Seib is a self-taught hoop dancer with over eight years experience performing and teaching. Ten years ago she picked up a hoop at a festival and began traditional hula hooping for fun. Throughout the years she has taught herself new moves or “tricks” from watching others and began combining it with her love of dance. What started out as a fun hobby has grown into a form of art. Bethany enjoys exploring the possibilities of the hoop and believes the flow of the practice allows her to express herself with the benefit of physical and spiritual health. She believes that everyone can hoOp dance with the right hula hoop and attitude. As an instructor she strives to create a comfortable environment that encourages exploration of the mind and body.

Doug Hayward has was introduced to Yoga thru a Philosophy course at Millersville University as an undergraduate in the early 70’s. However, that exposure simply turned out to be a seed that didn’t blossom until the mid 90’s when he went to a Bikram class in West Reading Pennsylvania. Under the tutelage of Sarita Rocco, Doe Wails, Maryann Blefko, Joel Pier, JoAnn Morrell, Bikram, Jimmy Barkam, Eric Schiffman, Rama Berch and Bri Maya Tiwari he was introduced to the wonderful world of Asana and self discoverable meditation. His journey continued over a couple of years of practice till he became one of the first members of Yoga Alliance when their headquarters was in West Reading, PA. He went on from there on a trip to State College, PA to teach Yoga at a local Massage School and the Pennsylvania State University. Those opportunities continue to flourish to this day while at the same time he opened a small studio called Yoga in State College. Being an avid reader of antiquated Yoga Books, Doug helped to establish Yoga in State College as a portal of Yoga education for thousands of students thru the help of over 20 other teachers either living in the area or acquiring the knowledge of Yoga at the studio itself. He continues a tradition of Free Yoga Classes at Berks County’s Heritage Center ~ every Sunday at 11:00 am from May to September.
