Her yoga classes encourage students to find their own practice by helping them understand the body’s potential and uncovering the unique rhythm of their own breaths. Her style is energetic and informal, warm and welcoming, and her goal is to bring yoga, nutrition, and wellness to everyone—even the skeptics. Liz has developed various health-related workshops, She believes that people of all ages and backgrounds can lead healthier and happier lives through movement and nutrition. Her twin mantras are, “Move like yourself” and “Become your own best teacher.”
