Liz (Raven) has been practicing yoga for nearly 20 years and teaching for over a decade. She received her teaching certification from Integral Yoga in 2003. Over the years Liz has been honing her skills through studies with numerous senior teachers around the US and internationally, with her greatest teachers being her own students.
Through this ongoing relationship Liz has developed a keen awareness of the unique experience of each student on both a functional and energetic level, allowing her to customize the practice to each student’s unique needs.
RavenYoga with Elizabeth Raven is her own unique form of Hatha yoga that focuses on building strength and flexibility by slowing down and cultivating mindfulness. In Liz’s classes you will learn how to ~ align the body to achieve a sense of freedom and stability in the asanas; free the breath to soothe the nervous system; and settle the mind for an improved sense of focus and overall well-being. Each session will include gentle/subtle movements, more challenging strength-based postures, seated meditation, and deep relaxation. Liz’s teaching style does away with a cookie-cutter approach and rather guides each student to find their own center. This subtle approach takes the more advanced student to a deeper level, while being accessible to those just starting out.
When not teaching Liz loves to sing and dance, ride her bike, take her pooch for hikes in the hills, and peruse the abundant local farmers’ markets.
