Elisabeth discovered yoga when she was 17, deeply entrenched and struggling with disordered eating. Immediately attracted to the power of yoga, Elisabeth completed her certiﬁcation with Dana Baptiste in 2006. Elisabeth has continued her education, studying with: Maty Ezraty, Bryan Kest, Rolf Gates, Baron Baptiste, Anna Forest, and many other wonderful teachers. Elisabeth's passion is to prove that everyone can incorporate yoga into THEIR lifestyle. Her teaching focuses on empowering people, with a focus on women and athletes, to dive deeper into their body’s true ability and strength. In this process, students ﬁnd the amazing beauty that encompasses who they are, and in that, they ﬁnd an acceptance of body and breath. Elisabeth has worked with many Olympic athletes, professional athletes, and high-performance athletes to improve their connection to body, mind, and breath. Elisabeth believes that nature holds an essential piece of the self, and in 2007, she founded MOAB YOGA on the ROCKS, a company that reconnects people to the earth through yoga. MOAB YOGA on the ROCKS offers backpacking and camping yoga retreats. In addition to teaching at Metric Yoga, as well as corporately and privately, Elisabeth teaches and works with women recovering from eating disorders and hopes to incorporate yoga into an innovative rehabilitation movement. She is currently pursuing her MSW (Masters of Social Work) at the University of Utah with the hopes of creating a private practice incorporating mindfulness and yoga into talk therapy specifically for disordered eating. Elisabeth is available for private instruction and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
