Yoga Classes

Classes are 1.5 hours in length, with a 10 week quarter, one for each season of the year. There is also a rhythm of shorter workshops, in philosophy and various yoga texts, more concentrated focus into an area of the body such as hips, shoulders or back, pranayama or yogic breathing, as well as various other subjects. These workshops are generally 3 to 5 hours long. Elizabeth also teaches in joint yoga and meditation workshops and retreats occasionally. See the Class and Workshop schedule for current offerings
Elizabeth prefers to enroll students for a full quarter of weekly class with as consistent participation as possible. This fosters a sense of sangha, or community that greatly enriches our practice with one another and the support and fellowship we develop in collective practice. Regularity of attendance also encourages rooted, well informed and diligent practice that may be lost in a more haphazard schedule. However, drop-in arrangements are possible. Please inquire.
All props are supplied at each studio, though students may prefer to bring their own mats. Elizabeth currently teaches at her home studio, 19 miles from Bellingham in the foothills of the Cascades. Her studio with radiant heat flooring, a view of the Nooksack River and the Twin Sisters mountains offers a peaceful sanctuary for yoga practice. 8 Petals Studio is her Bellingham location at 1317 Commercial Street, where she teaches in a lovely studio in the heart of downtown Bellingham. Elizabeth also teaches Individual Classes.
