About Liz’s approach to yoga

Liz has practiced yoga for 25 years, and is a Certified RainbowKidsYoga Instructor and Mini Me Yoga Ambassador. She also draws inspiration from the work of Sydney Solis, creator of Storytime(TM) Yoga.

Liz uses her elementary school teaching experience and storytelling skills to connect with kids, so they are busy having fun, while they build strength, body awareness and self-confidence. Each session is sure to include time for learning new ways to move our bodies and our breath, working together in partner or group poses, and practicing relaxation and visualization to help us stay calm and focused.

Classes for younger children include upbeat yoga songs, and a book, story or adventure to act out using yoga poses and other movement. Older children enjoy mastering poses, and challenging themselves through fun games and partner work. Liz can incorporate curriculum themes and topics, from science to literature to character education. Just as important, there is room for the students to contribute their own ideas and energy within a safe, structured setting. This emphasis on co-creation is a great way to engage children, and they will want to share what they’ve discovered with their family, too.
