Meet the instructor, Liz Durkin:
Liz came to yoga later in life, at first to deepen her understanding of Jyotish, the science of light, another limb of the ancient Vedas, but what she found was the greatest healing gift of her life. For 20 years, yoga has been a powerful tool to heal both her mind and body from chronic pain and severe asthma. She has an eclectic background influenced by many teachers including Auryel Van Gemert, Jodi Boone, Katerina Wen, MJ Daniels, Dawn Jansen, and Marjorie DeMuynck, all with a common Bhakti, or devotional style. Her teacher trainings have focused on Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra, which she uses to teach others to find their own inner and innate ability to heal by reconnecting with nature and its seasonal rhythms. Liz’s classes focus on calming meditative practices incorporating pranayama, vibrational sound, mudras, and mantras to restore the parasympathetic nervous system and bring deep healing. Main Influences/Styles/Traditions: Jyotish, Bhakti, Universal, and Vinyasa
