Retreat Speaker

Rev. Bethel Lee earned her Bachelor of Arts in Industrial-Organizational Psychology from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California and her Master of Divinity from Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina.

She founded Yoga Chapel in 2012 to bridge the divide she felt between mind and body within Christian spirituality. You can also hear some of her reflections at Mini Chapel Podcast.

She is an ordained minister and regularly guest preaches in Canada and the United States. She also serves as a Campus Chaplain at the University of British Columbia.

Bethel has attained her 200-Hour Hatha Teacher Certification through Open Source Yoga in Vancouver, BC, and has continued advanced training for her 500-Hour Certification through Semperviva Yoga College, specializing in Yin, Vinyasa, Prenatal and Kundalini yoga.

Bethel lives in Vancouver with her soul-life-mate David, their mini-guru/son Moses and his furry sibling Chance.
