Elizabeth is a Yoga Alliance certified 200 RYT and a graduate of the Sivananda Yoga Vedante Center. After beginning her personal yogic journey in 2014, Elizabeth began to realize the physical and spiritual healing power of yoga. Wanting to help spread this healing to others, Elizabeth decided to pursue her yoga teaching certification. In January 2019, she spent a month at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in Paradise Island, Bahamas where she studied Sivananda Hatha yoga, pranayama, Vedanta philosophy, mantra meditation, and Kirtan. Elizabeth believes that yoga is not just a physical practice or a profession, but a lifestyle which takes every opportunity to spread kindness, love, and healing to all living beings. Swami Chidananda states that yoga is “perfection in action…A perfect act is one that brings some benefit to someone and harm to no one.” Using this philosophy, Elizabeth strives to make every interaction, with her students and others, a yogic one. Her personal practice includes Japa Meditation, Sivananda Hatha Yoga, and Ashtanga Yoga with Larry Hobbs. Her teaching style aims to bring awareness to the breath to encourage a meditative state through mind/body/soul connection. Whatever style class she teaches, Elizabeth aims always to teach from her heart and serve her students with love and encouragement.
