History

The intention of our practice has always been to find ease and comfort in the body in the most holistic form possible. Our practice has been evolving for over a decade growing new branches of knowledge and roots of experience. The name, Jivitaya, ‘Life’ in Singalese, expressed itself during the creation of a new life, Brook’s daughter Jaia. Jivitaya started individually with Brook providing physiotherapy, yoga therapy, and pilates rehabilitation globally. Today Jivitaya is a strong collective of therapists, teachers, and healers that each have a unique gift to share and the power to guide you towards a place of freedom from pain, imbalances and a busy mind.

Bethany Keyser

Originally from the East Cost from a small rural town in Pennsylvania, Bethany now considers herself a Montana lover. She has lived here now with her husband and two children for 6 years. 

She had heard of the many benefits of yoga and only stretched for high intensity fad workouts that never stuck.  She now believes yoga translates to life in every aspect.  "I went to one of Brook' s first classes and have been hooked ever since!" Bethany studied Yoga intensively for one year and is now a 200 hour certified yoga teacher.

Bethany loves art, reading, hiking and fishing. Her family and friends are very dear to Bethany being so far from family, she's happy to raise her children in a small community. She loves working with children as she sees that they are our future and can change the world.  "I love working with children and enjoy my job as a teacher assistant at the Head Start here in Shelby.  Children, just like yoga, help me slow down from the fast pace hectic world and enjoy and truly learn about life." 

"Yoga makes me so happy and if I can make that happen for someone else that would just be amazing. The benefits are endless."

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. With a background in dance, primarily ballet, she grew up loving movement and connecting with the body. She found yoga after having two children and realizing that she wanted to get moving again. Christal fell in love with yoga instantly. She recognized that yoga was about self improvement, patience, and loving your body for what it can do. She decided that she wanted to share this message and practice it with everyone.
