About Liz

I first began practicing yoga in roughly 2003, but my journey into the practice was far from straightforward. My first several classes left me feeling like yoga wasn’t for me … I didn’t look like anyone else in the class, and I was left to struggle into poses with little guidance or support. In retrospect, it’s amazing I ever came back to the practice.

But I did.

I’ve found a stronger connection to myself — and, by extension, the broader world — by coming back to my yoga practice on a regular basis. It nourishes my soul, calms my system, and breeds gratitude for all that is good in this world.Curvy Yoga

I became a yoga teacher to share these gifts with others in my communities — particularly those who don’t see themselves in the popularized images of yoga practitioners. I believe yoga can work in any body, and I’m here to help you find your yoga.

Here is my favorite blog post about yoga: I love dogs … just not in my yoga practice.

I hope to meet you on the mat (or the pool) soon!
