"Liz was an incredible teacher and mentor, she helped lay a strong foundation that has served me throughout my teaching career. She is very knowledgeable and her wealth of experience and passion for the work resonates through everything she presents.  Through her training I learned many techniques that I still use in my classes years later, I would not be the children's yoga teacher I am today without these fundamentals."

"I was amazed at how much I had learned in that course. There were so many ideas that Liz shared during that training that I have this huge amount of resources in my head. It gave me a lot more confidence working with kids and I can tell you as a parent how much it’s helped me out...The approach that Liz has, it helps bring kids to peace and calm. It’s really opened up my eyes and I’ve learned a lot about my daughter and how we can work together when we are home a lot. I really would recommend the course because it’s so informative and if anything it just opens up the door to learn more about the kids as well as teach them."

"Liz has a great ability to focus children with her teaching style of patience and gentleness.  Teaching with her I saw how much care she put into her teaching.  Her kind heart and joyful nature made it wonderful to work with her."
