About

My name is Beck Forsland.

I am a runner, meditator, yogi, weight lifter, rollerblader, snowboarder, cross-country skier, biker, hiker, backpacker, canoeist, pianist, bass player, artist, cross-stitcher, organic food enthusiast, grass-fed/pasture-raised carnivore, composter, decaf coffee consumer, book reader and military wife doing my best to live lightly on Earth. I am a Yoga Therapist (certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapist, C-IAYT). I am also an author at TwigandTrail.com where my husband and I share our adventure experiences.

In my 20s I started The Yoga Place (AKA. Wellinspire Wellness Center). I also bought my first house: an uninsurable, unlivable foreclosure that I renovated (and have since sold).

In my 30s I began my doctorate degree from University of Western states to become a Chiropractic Physician.

I continue to advocate for: girls’ education, healthy children, domestic violence victims, and strong military families.
