Lizzie was first drawn to yoga as a philosophy student over 15 years ago as a way of deepening her understanding of the relationship between the body and mind.
As she increasingly integrated the practices of yoga into her daily life, the healing benefits transpired and yoga eventually took over as her full time occupation. She has intently studied with a variety of schools including Sivananda, Ashtanga and Iyengar, and has been lovingly teaching the Jivamukti method since 2007. She is also certified as a children's yoga teacher, a thai yoga masseur and a craniosacral therapist. Her vinyasa-based classes are infused with a passion for music, attention to alignment and awareness of the breath. Hands-on, intelligent adjustments are Lizzie's specialty, enabling the practitioner to open blocked areas of the body and deepen into the practice beyond what was thought possible.
Above all else, Lizzie believes that the only way to practice and to teach yoga is with a compassionate heart. When Lizzie’s not practicing or teaching yoga, she’s most likely to be found on the jungle gym with her one-year-old son.
Water, Wind, Fire, Earth, Sky. I’ve found these elements present in every place I’ve felt home, and perhaps why I feel most home in my yoga practice, which is comprised of the elements.
