Liz completed her Yoga teacher training in 2003 and since this time has been teaching yoga in her studio at Pymble, on the North Shore of Sydney.

Yoga classes became a method of finding “the quiet” that Liz needed to re-energise and find clarity while she was working in the hectic and fast moving hospitality industry in her twenties.

During the last 13 years since graduating from the IYTA Teacher Training Course Liz has followed the teachings of Judith Hanson Laster, TVK Desikachar, Kausthube Desikachar, Donna Farhi, Dr Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani and she acknowledges her colleagues and peers in the IYTA (including her teacher Margaret North who encouraged her to participate in further yoga studies) of which she believes provide such a great source of knowledge and wisdom.

Liz spent 4 years teaching Asana and class planning as part of the YTA Teacher Training course and believes very much in sharing knowledge, providing honest and loving encouragement to students by mentoring and helping them to grow and develop their own yoga journey.

In 2014 Liz completed the IYTA Advanced graduate diploma Yoga, which has further enriched her Yoga training.

Liz is a member of the IYTA and a Committee of Management Member and also a member of YA (Yoga Australia) and is absolutely convinced that yoga is the path to happiness, contentment and a healthy mind, body and soul.

In this podcast, Liz discusses how she moved from the world of hectic kitchens and hospitality to the calmer realm of yoga and the realisation that yoga is much more than just a physical practice.  She shares her love for teaching yoga and the multiple benefits of a regular practice for the body, the breath, the mind and the soul.
