Lizabeth began practicing hatha yoga and mindfulness meditation in 2000 when she was introduced to the work of Jon Kabat Zinn who founded the pioneering program Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. She discovered these practices helped to still her active mind and recover from health challenges. One of her first yoga teachers is Rick Bernstein, and Lizabeth continues to learn healing traditions of yoga from him. Lizabeth completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training at Open Space Yoga in Honolulu in 2009 and has been teaching ever since. Lizabeth has also been working in the field of conservation in Hawaii since 1994 and completed a MA in Ecopsychology in 2012 at Naropa University. She often incorporates awareness of the natural world in her classes. Her classes also focus on cultivating mindfulness, compassion, and deep relaxation. She has a strong interest in yoga therapy, particularly yoga for anxiety and depression, and has studied with Amy Weintraub and Mirka Kraftsow among other teachers. She is also certified as an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist with the Himalayan Institute.
