East Meets West Yoga Center

Elizabeth Elsmore

Elizabeth came to yoga years ago quite by accident when she decided to attend a free class with a friend who convinced her it was “the best stretch she would ever have”. Not only was she was right, but Yoga soon became so much more to Elizabeth. As she began to practice on her own, she discovered it helped her to navigate natural childbirth and motherhood. She loved how yoga made her feel. She loved that she could breathe and find space… and maybe even a little peace. In 2012, Elizabeth decided to take her growth to new levels and maybe even share a little bit of learning with others, going on to complete her 200 hr RYT training through Infusion Yoga and Pilates in Bountiful, a Yoga Alliance approved school. In 2014 she went back to finish her 500 hr RYT and soon discovered a whole new world of empowerment, intuitive movement, and compassion for herself and her life then she had ever known before. In the summer of 2015, Elizabeth also completed a certificate to teach SUP Yoga, or Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga. She says that, “Play is such an important part of life and SUP Yoga has allowed me such an amazing way to experience a different side of the same yoga coin”. She now teaches and subs at several different studies, practicing mainly variations of Hatha yoga. While SUP Yoga may be the new-found love of Elizabeth’s life, she has found it just adds to all the joy and health that yoga has brought to her. She loves to share that joy with others, her feet firmly on (and off!) her mat, wherever that may take her!
