Founder Yoga Palm Beach
After more than 25 years of training my body to its physical limits, I learned I needed yoga in my life. I am an athletic person by nature and love the physical practice of yoga: the idea of touching each muscle and opening up all the energy channels in the body is exciting to me. My style of Vinyasa keeps me grounded, vital, healthy and present in my body. I have personally witnessed the power of the practice of Vinyasa yoga in my active lifestyle and in my most important role as a wife and mother of two.
Six years ago I moved to Florida, took my first yoga class, and fell in love. I knew instantly that I had found my true passion. I took my first teacher training 5 years ago and have been teaching every since. I’ve been lucky to teach in many different settings- gyms, yoga studios, outdoors, on paddle boards, and spending a lot of my time teaching in treatment centers to people who are recovering from addiction. In class, I always encourage students to have fun, find their edge, and be aware how our habits on our mats reflect our habits in our lives.
Do what you love, love what you do. I have been teaching group fitness classes for the past 16 years, and personal training for 13. I feel incredibly lucky to have a job I love. I prefer to call myself a fitness motivator! I get up every morning knowing I have a room full of people waiting to be motivated and inspired to create a life they love in a fit and healthy body. Personal Training is just that, personal, and I now do all of my training privately. I’ve been practicing yoga for the past 10 years and it has deeply impacted my life for the better. I am now teaching power vinyasa yoga and loving it.
My intention for every class is to be of service to my students through offering yoga as therapy for the body, mind, and spirit. As a massage therapist, I use my knowledge of anatomy to safely guide students through postures with breath and intention. I aim to always offer all-levels classes that are challenging, therapeutic, and of course fun and uplifting! So whether you seek flexibility, strength, balance or even a detox, you’ll find what you need on the mat and carry it with you throughout your day.
Yoga made possible a miracle of healing in me. Gratitude and a sense of wonder are what animate my teaching today. I believe passionately in the power of yoga to restore health to the body, equanimity to the mind, and vitality to the soul. I love what I do, and I feel a genuine excitement about sharing this practice with others.
Elizabeth has been teaching in the Jupiter area for two years at health clubs, corporations, country clubs and with private clients. She draws inspiration from multiple yoga and physical disciplines including Anusara Yoga, gentle yoga, vinyasa yoga, yin yoga, physical therapy techniques and guided meditation practices. She brings a lovingly playful, yet practical voice to her classes as she guides her students into a sacred, healing space.
Katherine teaches both traditional Ashtanga yoga as taught in the lineage of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, as well as a creative vinyasa style practice that is a combination of yoga asana and pranayama, influenced by Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Kripalu, and Iyengar methods. For Katherine, the yoga practice is a deep commitment to one’s inner journey and evolution, a path toward self-discovery, and a practice that cultivates inner peace and loving-kindness which can then contribute to more harmony for all beings. She encourages students to be patient, do the practice, and enjoy the transformation, because it is deeply profound.
