Elizabeth completed her 200-hr yoga teacher training with Tula Yoga in Chicago, holds an MFA in poetry, and is a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who is endlessly fascinated by the many modes our bodies interact with the world through food, the environment, and with one another.
After being diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2011, her body could no longer keep up with the demands of dance training. Real food became a way to regain autonomy in an unpredictable new reality. Through trial and error, she regained strength and a new understanding of her body by learning to respect and integrate with its needs through nutrition. Elizabeth is passionate about helping people reconnect with the basic principles we've lost regarding food and nourishment by dismantling 'diet' stigmas, and supporting all bodies through compassion and empowerment.
Her yoga teaching philosophy aims to cultivate attention, intelligent alignment, and self-compassion. Using her dance background, one can expect dynamic movement with a focus on the subtle and consistent energy occurring even while in stillness. Elizabeth hopes to create a supportive space for reuniting the body and mind in balance, without judgement.
