Meet Your Host

Hi! I'm Liz!

My journey with yoga began over 20 years ago. Over the years my passion for sharing this practice has led me from teaching in gyms and private studios, to owning my own studio. Simply stated, my philosophy is that chronic pain is caused by an imbalance between strength and flexibility. Discovering and correcting my client's imbalances is my greatest joy.  Over the years I have helped hundreds of clients and taught thousands of hours. My teaching style has been described as, down to earth, caring, lighthearted, and dynamic.

Another one of my personal beliefs is that through sharing our experiences we heal ourselves and help others. This is a vital part of a strong community. I look forward to sharing all the juicy details of my story with you in Cali this Fall. I promise you this is a tale you will not want to miss! 

Love, Liz

If you have any questions I'm always here for you!
