RYT 200, owner of Greentree Yoga & Wellness
My name is Tiffany Bell and I am a resident of Brockton, MA. I’ve been personally practicing yoga asanas for about 2.5years and graduated from my Yoga teacher training, with Down Under Yoga Studio, on July 10, 2020.
Outside of GreenTree Yoga, I am a legal assistant/paralegal at a law firm in Boston, which has basically been my career for the past 15 years. I play Dungeon & Dragons with my husband, I love puzzles (currently going through a Thomas Kincade DC phase) and have a 7year old daughter and a 1 year old mini-poodle, Benny.
I wanted to start a company because I remember what it was like the first time I wanted to go to a yoga studio and attempt to practice – no one looked like me, it wasn’t particularly welcoming (though not hostile), and I didn’t understand what these words the teacher was yelling out. Obviously I stuck it out, but I know those initial interactions are usually harder to move past.
I’m hoping to create an environment where EVERYONE feels like they have the right to take up space with their yoga mat and you feel empowered to come as you are.
Practicing yoga the past few years has really helped me see the areas of myself I need to work on mentally and has kept me strong physically, especially when my knees started to tell me to stop jogging. I can’t tell you what specifically it would do for you, every body and mind is different, but I do know practicing would not be detrimental to you.
Since I hope to grow with my community, if there are any workshops, specialty classes or new spaces you think would be fun to practice, please feel free to reach out to me – what’s the point of community-focus, If I don’t ask my community.
Peace and Power
