A Greenville native, Pace learned to cultivate health in all areas of his life through his late parents, Sam and Catherine, who were dedicated to healthy living. Pace discovered a passion for hot yoga while trying to neutralize the stress of his job at the Chicago Board of Trade and increase inner strength and peace. In 2009, Pace decided to pursue his dream to open a hot yoga studio in his hometown of Greenville and Southern Om Hot Yoga opened its doors in June 2010. Pace has completed Levels 1, 2 and 3 with the Baptiste Yoga Institute. With decades of experience in meditation and alternative health, Pace inspires students with his courage and creativity. Pace is married to Sarah Beattie, a fellow yoga teacher and integrative health coach. He serves on the board of directors for the Fullerton Foundation, a family foundation dedicated to funding healthcare and education initiatives in North and South Carolina.
Pace Beattie instructs the following:
Southern Flow is a flowing series of sun salutations, lunges, twists, balance postures, backbends, core strengthening, hip openers and inversions often referred to as Power Yoga. Designed to build core strength and flexibility while still maintaining focus on a meditative practice.
Southern 26 is a classic series of 26 postures held for 20, 30 or 60 seconds and repeated on the other side, known worldwide as ‘hot yoga’ and based on the work of Bikram Choudhury.

Southern Stretch is a restorative practice that targets tightness in your body and tension in your mind. It is a refreshing way to enhance your flexibility and create a well-rounded daily practice. You will use props such as blocks, bolsters and blankets to support your practice and access the nooks and crannies of your body. The effect is that you leave class feeling more open, more content, and more possibility in your whole being.
