About

OUR WHY

to empower women to reclaim their bodies, their voices, their lives.


My name is Beck.

Since I was a small human, I was devoted to helping the underdog. I don’t know how that desire started in my little heart. Perhaps it was a natural instinct as the oldest of three girls: I wanted my younger sisters to know they weren’t alone. I wanted to ensure they were supported, safe, successful. In fact, that same desire nearly led me into law school as fresh graduate with a Bachelors Degree in Sociology: to fight for the victims. Though life led me in a direction away from law school, I’ve found myself involved in courtroom battles for the rights of various victims.

I served my purpose in my 20s when I started The Yoga Place and worked with yoga students and life coaching clients to help people overcome physical and mental limitations. I volunteered to work with school-aged girls, women in prison, and at the domestic abuse house. I served my purpose, too, when I bought my first house: an uninsurable, unlivable foreclosure that we renovated and now is full of awe and joy.

Today I’m serving my purpose as an intern in my school’s chiropractic clinic. Though life looks different now as compared to 10 years ago, my desire to inspire people to be the best version of themselves is still the same.

I empower women to reclaim their bodies, their voices, their lives.
