As a former collegiate athlete and marathon runner, Liza was first attracted to yoga for the physical intensity and opening. As her life circumstances changed, her practice moved beyond the physical asana, offering an exploration of authenticity and presence. Ultimately, through her practice, she developed a more peaceful relationship with herself on and off the mat. Now, coming to her yoga mat is an experience of being present in her body and of knowing that she is enough- physically, mentally, and spiritually. Yoga continues to be a vehicle for transformation and healing in different ways in her life, and it is this process of transformation that she loves to share with others.
Liza invites her students to come as they are to her classes to experience a powerful, playful, and challenging vinyasa that also offers space for connection to breath, self, and community. In Liza's classes, students can expect an integration of invigorating power yoga with a restorative sequence designed to cultivate inner growth, self-compassion, and greater self-awareness.
The practice of yoga can be such a beautiful metaphor for what's going on in our lives, and what we need or crave in our classes changes on a day-to-day basis. Liza's students are always invited to check in with themselves throughout their practice and to take what they need (and leave what they don't), creating space for an empowered and embodied experience.
