Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds' wings—Rumi

A school teacher at heart and profession since 2004, Liz began her personal yoga practice in 2001, which became a common thread through all her work with both children and adults alike, both in Canada and abroad. Recognizing the profound impact yoga has on kids, developing brains and bodies and communities, she then received her 200hour teacher training in 2014 to deepen her practice, not then knowing where her path would lead.

She is passionate about teaching Hatha, prenatal and kids classes, and about yoga as the altar of her daily life, where she is more balanced, spacious, and compassionate.  Her pregnancy, birth process, family and prenatal training (by teacher Teresa Campbell) has revealed that prenatal yoga is an incredible place of transformation, support and undeniable strength, and she is honoured to be with expectant parents and babies in their journey. Additionally Liz offers Kids Yoga workshops to teaching professionals and is working towards her 500HR Advanced yoga training.
