I promise you do not need to kill yourself to see results!
In fact, doing too much might actually be the problem! The mind-body connection is about listening to your body (yes, the body talks!), reducing or eliminating stress, and finding a practice that you ENJOY!
Did you know that high-intensity cardio workouts cause stress on your body?
Not only stress on your joints but stress to your metabolism - especially for those who are over 40 or people who are chronically stressed out!
When we are in our 20s, it's no big deal because our estrogen and testosterone offset the extra stress hormones. But, as we get older, our estrogen and testosterone decline, and our adrenal glands can't keep up with more stress!
Too much stress can cause your body to store fat instead of burning it!😳
The BYG Method is a blended approach to wellness using the foundations from Yoga, Pilates, and the mind-body connection. I will teach you simple techniques from ancient and modern wisdom in a fun & effective way!
My BYG Method solves this problem!🙌🏻
You will reduce stress, tone your muscles, sleep better, eat healthier, improve your immune system, and become more aware of your body's needs and wants.
Simple, fun, & effective at-home training!

Change can happen, and it can happen easier than you may think!
I know what it feels like to waste time (and money) trying to figure out what will finally be “the thing” that makes you feel better, love exercise, and, more importantly, love yourself.
Maybe you have tried it all …
Instagram yoga challenges, ebooks, classes at the gym, yoga studio memberships, and even a few online courses that you didn’t have time even to try, but nothing has stuck. I can 100% relate.
The key to success is all about the mind-body connection.
The BYG Method will teach you how to listen to the body, reduce stress, pick classes that are right for your needs, and will make you love stepping on your mat!
I am a teacher who understands, cares, and will help you along your journey!
I am a mother of 2 teenage boys, married to a wonderful man, Nick, for 19 years, and I live in South Florida. I have been teaching and personal training for 19 years.
I love helping people find the magic of the mind-body connection.
You might know me on Instagram as @beachyogagirl. 9 years ago, I began sharing my practice to inspire and motivate myself. Hosting Instagram Yoga challenges helped me stay accountable and inspired others to try yoga.
Today, I continue sharing my practice with over 1 million followers!
At 46 years old, over 15 training certifications, and almost 20 years of training and teaching,
I literally have tried it all!
For many years I thought I had to spend 60-90 minutes of exercise to experience results. I felt like it was a waste of time if I didn't feel exhausted afterward.
I would stretch and stretch and stretch but somehow could never unlock my hamstrings! WTH! 😣
Have you experienced this too? Trust me;
You don't need MORE stretching to unlock your hamstrings!
After I turned 40, I had experienced many chronic injuries and a worsening battle with fibromyalgia & back pain. I felt a bit defeated and overwhelmed. I quite literally could not keep up this high-intensity paced training.
High-intensity workouts create more stress on the body.
So, I did something that I should have done a long time ago. I began listening to my body. Then, I discovered something that has changed my life...
Doing less can actually be more.👏🏻
YES! It's true. Learning how to use the mind-body connection, listen to my body, and move in simple yet effective ways has changed my life!
My passion is to help others find what works for their bodies and feel amazing too!
That is why I created the BYG METHOD!
The best purchase I have made this year! You will not regret getting on these programs. Awesome workouts, and seriously, the classes are fun too!

"BYG Method has become my go-to workout. I look forward to them every day and can easily fit them into my schedule with a variety of options available. And even the short workouts can challenge you, so don't underestimate them. Kerri is great at showing how to increase or decrease the difficulty to meet your needs, and her positive attitude will help you smile through even the most difficult workouts."
Kerri's classes are always very well structured, inspiring, fun, challenging, but never boring! I like her holistic approach to everything. I love that there's always a (BYG) method to the madness - I really appreciate that Kerri explains why each exercise/movement/posture is important and why we are doing it.
Kerri Verna’s gentle guidance and wisdom really helped me break out of pre-menopausal funk. From Day 1, I was hooked because of her. Her knowledge and explanation of mechanics really have helped to use the correct breath and muscles. I could sing the praises for BYG Method and Kerri for days. Her commitment to her team has truly changed my life. I wish I had joined when she first announced instead of just admiring her on Instagram!

"Kerri has taught me how to rethink the way I approach practicing, as well as how to listen to what my body really needs. I’ve gained a ton of strength and no longer have back pain. Every day I look forward to getting on the mat."
I joined another 'big' platform a couple of months ago because I was so happy with your platform I thought I would give all those 'world-renowned' yoga teachers a try. After one month, I discontinued my membership. For me what you are doing alone is SO much better than a platform with hundreds of teachers!!! Anyone who is considering... this is my best investment of 2020

Exciting to see changes that core work is making. I have gained strength, flexibility, and mobility. BYG Method is all that and a bag of chips!🥳 I started BYGM in October; it's that good! All you have to do is show up—every day. Do something. If you're tired, get on your mat and do 1 thing even for 4 seconds, like breathing, meditation, or cry.
