About Liz: Liz first began doing yoga during graduate school in 2009 and immediately found it to be a refreshing way to engage the body and mind. Through the years, Liz’s appreciation for yoga’s ability to connect the mind and body grew, as did her desire to learn more about the practice. As Liz continued to develop her career in social work, she saw the profound affect, as well as growing research, that supports the engagement of the body in emotional well-being. While working as aLicensed Clinical Social Work, Liz decided to pursue a yoga teacher training program. In 2017, Liz completed a nine-month RYT-200 training course at Bloom Yoga Studio in Chicago. In this Liz continued to foster her appreciation for both rigorous classes as well as the balance with a more gentle approach. Liz is exploring how she can utilize yoga in her clinical work and also teaches in traditional studio settings.
Liz teaches a Hatha style class incorporating a Vinyasa flow, coordinating breath with movement. Liz’s classes are usually set to contemporary music and include a restorative rest at the end of each practice.
