Elizabeth found yoga at a young age when a doctor recommended it to help with managing childhood arthritis. She later realized the positive effects that not only the physical practice but the spiritual practice had on helping her cope with a severe anxiety disorder and panic attacks. Deciding to take her first 200hr teacher training in 2017.
She believes the goal of yoga is not who is the most flexible or who can stand on their head the longest. Yoga is the union built between the body, the mind, and the breath. Coming completely into the present moment. Taking the time to honor and care for yourself. Yoga goes so much deeper then the asanas (postures). Elizabeth wants to help to spread the joy and teachings of yoga to help others become comfortable in their mind, body, and soul throughout life.
Elizabeth completed her 200 hour teacher training from ShivaShakti School of Yoga in 2017 and is currently working on her 300 Advanced training now. Including a certification in Thai Yoga Bodywork. Nuad Bo-Rarn, or Thai Yoga Bodywork, is an ancient form of hands-on bodywork drawing its roots from the Buddhist temples of Thailand. Also having completed training in Yoga Support for Addiction Recovery, and considerers herself a recovery ally for all of those looking for support.
Elizabeth is also a trained inferno hot pilates instructor, being trained by Gabriella Walters in March of 2019. Using Pilates principles, Hot Pilates class is a challenging, full body, low impact, high intensity workout. It is performed on a yoga mat in a room heated to 95 degrees and 40% humidity. Hot Pilates strengthens muscles and burns fat — all without the pounding of a high impact workout. It is designed for all fitness levels.
Elizabeth hopes to bring the teachings of yoga to everybody and every body. She brings a big heart and a lot of soul to her practice and classes, with a lot of love for yoga and its community.
Inhale the future, exhale the past, be in the present.
Om Shanti (peace)
