Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
My name is Elizabeth DeRaad and I have been teaching yoga for 15 years. Yoga is a passion as well as a personal obsession for me.
I received most of my yoga training at YogaWorks in Southern California in 2008. Over the years, I have specialized in Iyengar Yoga, Vinysasa Flow Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Kundilini Yoga, Restorative Yoga, as well as Yoga for injury management and Meditation.
The Yoga that I present in my online classes is considered "Gentle Yoga" and it is appropriate for anyone. I will teach you to connect with your breath, mind and body. We will move slowly and do a lot of deep stretching during practice. I have core movements that I use frequently in my classes, though I also vary practice quite a bit to keep my students on their toes and help them develop a more comprehensive Yoga practice.
Ultimately, I like to say that the classes I teach are "Gentle" but not easy. I look forward to having you join me in class.
