just liz, please.
I believe in kindness, truth, and miracles.
Life humbly ushered me to a yoga class and one Friday evening 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. Fast forward to today and now my heartfelt intention is for all beings to feel at home in their body, on this earth, and in this life.
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, subtle body awareness and energetics, mantra, and mudra. I believe in our collective consciousness and 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 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
the practices of yoga.
May the efforts I make,
the words I speak,
and the actions I take -
bring forth more truth and kindness
to our world.

I am here to serve.
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.
$75/hour, $275/4 sessions.
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?
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). This may mean breaking down your foundation, exploring all the parts, and rebuilding.
I'm not a coach, nor do I claim to be. I'm here to support you moving in the direction of your dreams and become an aware and empowered teacher, human, friend, partner - full of grace and strength.
This offering includes yoga and meditation, mantra & mudra, book/podcast/reading recommendations, pranayama exercises, journaling prompts, and buckets of love.

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