Liz discovered Iyengar yoga in 1996 and regularly practiced this in her native country, New Zealand. In 2001 she travelled and lived in France and the Galapagos Islands where she kept a regular practice and visited other studios. In Guatemala she found Rae Ishee and began to practice asana with her, Rae was instrumental in opening the door to the 8 Limbs of Yoga and the start of her seeking a spiritual life. Liz gained her  RYT 200 with Paula Tursi of Reflections Yoga (New York) and she has been teaching since then. She has since studied with Paula to deepen her spiritual practice. Liz regularly travels to study. Among the teachers she has studied with is Gert van Leeuwen (Holland) in the Critical Alignment Method (Yoga for Backs) and she has attained Level 4 in this certification. Liz teaches personalized classes in this therapeutic approach to yoga. She also teaches an alignment based style of yoga and combines this with a restorative movement approach. Liz is guided by the 8 Limbs and shares her knowledge of yoga as a healing tool and as a way to connect to personal strength, self acceptance, compassion and love, so that we can improve our lives and those of others both on and off the mat.
