Hi, I am Liz. I am so thankful you have stopped by to check out my site and see what I am offering. It's always nice to know a little bit about the person behind the offerings so here is it a bit about me.
Movement has always been a big part of my life as the body is such a beautiful and all encompassing way of expressing ones' self but it wasn’t until my last year of university that I discovered yoga. I quickly learned it was so much more than just movement. It became a way to heal, open up and be more grounded in myself. After practicing yoga for a few years I decided to take my 200 hour yoga teacher training. I was lucky to have a teacher who taught me the true roots of yoga which allowed me to transform my practice, myself and offer classes that are heartfelt and authentic.
With a Bachelor of Science in Biology I understand the importance of offering safe, alignment based classes with modifications to suit all levels of practitioners. When your body is opened in an intelligent, anatomical way through alignment ques, appropriate modifications and gradual sequencing -- the physical benefits of your practice are maximized as well as the energetic benefits. This is in part because your breath and energy are able to move more freely within you when your body is proper aligned.
My practice has evolved so much since I first started practicing yoga and since I took my first teacher training. Yoga was the gateway for me to feel the energy in my body, to feel the energy of the earth and connect deeper to my Spirit and feel the integration of my Spirit into the earth and everything around me. This has led me to dive into the study of Shamanism, ancestral history, dream work, connecting the rhythm of my body to the earth, astrology, nourish a deep connection to nature and develop knowledge in herbal medicine. You will find me melding different aspects of the above in an intuitive way in my classes, workshops and retreats.
