About The Couple…
Beth is a certified surf and flat water paddle board instructor as well as a Sivananda certified Yoga teacher who fell in love with the ocean and with Yoga several years ago and never looked back. Coming from a non-surfer family, Beth’s love for the ocean was ignited when she started surfing with Daniel and learning about the classic “old school” style, which is her favourite. Nowadays Beth is training hard in her surfing and is constantly teaching Hatha Yoga in several different Yoga studios at home, she also hits the gym as often as she can and is focused in developing her surfing.
