Betsy Kimmel, E-RYT 200, is the founder of Laugh & Breathe Yoga. Betsy, a lifelong athlete, came to yoga after a tennis injury and fell in love with the practice of yoga. While she initially took yoga for the physical aspect, she soon realized the myriad of other benefits – from stress release to relaxation.

Betsy wants to share her experiences on the mat with others through teaching and hopes they can receive the same benefits on and off the mat.

She completed her 220 Hour Yoga Training from the Wilmington Yoga Center in Wilmington, North Carolina. Betsy has continued her yoga education by attending the Integrative Yoga for Seniors program at Duke University Integrative Medicine, Karma Kids Yoga Training and SUP Yoga Teaching Training through Longwave Yoga and Wrightsville SUP. She is also a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader. Betsy recently completed the Mindfulness Stress Reduction Program at Duke University Integrative Medicine.

Laugh & Breathe Yoga is a proud member of The Southport Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Southport, Inc. even while traveling the globe and spending time abroad in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
