Calm Your Mind

Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself and get clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body.

Testimonials

Wynona of Simi Valley, CA

"Elizabeth is  a very inspiring, creative and versatile yoga teacher.  She is very knowledgeable  about alignment, but what makes her classes so wonderful is her gentle  manner and wisdom. She always changes things up and knows when to  challenge us as well as when to allow us to find ease in the practice.  She is someone who lives her yoga and easily integrates her knowledge  and philosophy into the class in a fun and inspiring way.”  

Veronica of Moorpark, CA

“Attending Elizabeth's classes is a necessity for my sense of overall emotional and physical well-being. I try never to  miss.”  

Sophia of Chatsworth, CA

“Every week I enjoy Elizabeth’s yoga classes.  I so look forward to experiencing her classes and especially her soothing voice, body healing style. I also appreciate her care when it comes to differentiating according to her students limitations and injuries. When I leave her classes, I am both energized and completely relaxed.  I have recommended her classes to many people and they come away with the same  experience.  I eagerly await her next class. ” 

Josephine of Simi Valley, CA

"I really enjoyed our Palm Springs retreat two years ago.  Elizabeth is one of the best teacher I've ever had when it comes to teaching  breathing techniques, stretching and relaxation. Elizabeth's retreats are always fun and enjoyable.  I can't wait for another retreat” 

Jan of Los Angeles, CA

 “Elizabeth’s class is so calming and up lifting. Without seeming  to have done any workout it relaxes, rejuvenates and energizes the whole  body and mind. I have been a yoga enthusiast for years and have  experienced several types of yoga and yoga teachers but Elizabeth’s is by  far the best. Her manner is very calm gentle and her class is an enriching experience.” 

Susan of Santa Barbara, CA

"My friends and I went to Elizabeth's Kauai Retreat early in 2018 and we truly loved it!!  Not only that Elizabeth has the most soothing voice, her poses are also just right for someone who is in the beginning  level then transitioning to Level 1 challenging poses.  The retreat itself is priceless!! Kauai is a beautiful garden island to have your retreat!  Daily yoga practice with spectacular view of the ocean, beautiful house retreat and fun with hiking and delicious dinner.  We can't wait for the enchanting New Mexico retreat!"

Workshop Intro to Chakras & Energetic Anatomy with Elizabeth

This is a workshop to anyone who is interested in learning the chakras and energetic anatomy.  

 

You’ve probably heard people talking about the 7 chakras. They are often referenced in the context of emotional healing or meditation practice. However, you may have found the concept of chakras confusing. Or, you  have not quite understood what place it might have in your life. As it  turns out, everyone can work with chakras, not just experts. Each of  these potent energy centers has a unique vibrational frequency. So, even  a basic understanding of the 7 chakras can enhance your life in  surprising ways.


Whether you’re trying to heal a specific wound, looking to improve  your manifestation work with the Law of Attraction, or just hoping to  boost your overall well-being, it pays to know more about the 7 chakras. 


In this beginner’s introduction to chakras, we’ll explore each chakra’s  meaning and colors.


Yoga practice is included.
