Eliza began her yoga journey when she lived in North Lake Tahoe in 2010, in an effort to heal from her depression and anxiety. As she practiced more, she could feel an inner healing taking place. She’s always been drawn to the mental and spiritual benefits of the practice because it is the one place she can return to complete presence; in an attempt to connect to her most loving, true self. Through creating an intelligent sequence, she aims to create a state in which students develop a deeper sense of self-awareness. She does this by moving slowly and intentionally to be able to unify the actions of the breath, the mind and the body. Rooted in Integrated Hatha Vinyasa yoga, she emphasizes the union of opposites –strength and flexibility- in each posture to support balance in her student’s lives. Her sequences are shaped like a wave – with a beginning, a peak and an ending; from simple to more complex asanas that have krama and alternatives for all levels of practice. This progression will invite students to feel congruent with how their lives are off the mat; in their natural vinyasa of life.
