• just liz, please.

    I believe in kindness, truth, and miracles.

    Life humbly ushered me to a yoga class and one Friday evening in San Francisco my life forever changed.

     

    In a room with 200 strangers I moved, breathed, sweat, and surrendered. I had no idea what I was doing, yet walked home that evening and thought, "Whatever THAT was, thank you." For the first time in a long time I felt at home. Since that moment I have practiced, studied, lived, and taught the path and practices of yoga to the best of my ability and from my whole heart.

     

    I believe teaching is a conversation, not a monologue. I am here to see you and be with you with an open heart, open eyes, and open palms. I teach from a relevant and practical foundation while weaving in wisdom teachings that have been handed down to me from my teachers. I believe in collective consciousness and our universal heart - and tap into both to teach and guide. Caveat: I am also drawn to levity and absurdity, as laughter is real good medicine.

     

    In January of 2020, my partner Greg and I opened Love Bird Yoga in downtown Redmond, Oregon and bring yoga and meditation - in many forms and styles - to our sweet and thriving town. We are the little yoga studio that could in the little town that can!

     

    Everyone has unique gifts to share and we strive to celebrate every person who walks through our door. Our mission at Love Bird Yoga is for all beings to be happy, healthy, and free from suffering. And for all beings to be seen, valued, respected, and to know love.

     

    My daily intention

    I bow to the path and

    practices of yoga.

    May the efforts I make,

    the words I speak,

    and the actions I take -

    change, heal, and restore our world.

    Private Classes

    Private classes give us an opportunity to understand and see ALL of you. Are you looking for ease in your body and mind? Strength in your physical being? A deeper understanding of postures? Private classes can be individual or small groups up to 4 people. Classes are held at our studio (in a physically distanced set-up), or online via Zoom.

    $65/hour, $225/4 sessions.

    Mentorship

    Are you a student or teacher of yoga (i.e LIFE) ready to move forward on your path, yet not sure what step to take? I am here to light the way, my friend!

    Through a series of four meet-ups or Zoom calls, we'll explore your foundation (where you are right now) and your freedom (where you want, dream, desire to be). Sometimes it's about breaking down your foundation, exploring all the parts, and rebuilding.

    I'm not a coach, nor do I claim to be. I'm simply here to help you move in the direction of your dreams and become an aware and empowered teacher, human, friend, partner - full of grace and strength.

    My guidance includes yoga and meditation offerings, mantra & mudra suggestions, book/podcast/reading recommendations, pranayama exercises, journaling prompts, and huge servings of love.

    200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training: Living and Leading from your Heart

    January - June 2022

    Yoga is a mindful practice of living and being and after 3,000+ years is still potent, relevant, and needed now more than ever. At its core, studying yoga is the study of life and self. Throughout our time together, you'll peal away layers, discover your authentic self, and learn how to offer your gifts and light to the world. This training is offered by myself and Heather Kulikowsky - a fellow yoga teacher, friend, and Yoga therapist.

  • commitments

    Intentions in action.

    I am committed to making yoga accessible for all and every. I offer discounts on my classes, retreats, and trainings for anyone whom finances are a roadblock.

     

    I am committed to collaboration, not competition. I have intentionally chosen to collaborate with woman-owned businesses and non-profits, and local non-profits. Let's meet for tea or coffee and talk about how we can work with and support one another.
