Lizzie started practicing hot yoga in 1999 in Washington, D.C. The practice brought her relief from work stress and helped heal her injuries from a collegiate soccer career and long distance running. In 2001, an illness left her wondering why she was working in a high-pressure world that so poorly fit her dreams and aspirations. After attending teacher training in the spring of 2003, Lizzie moved to Virginia and opened Hot Yoga Charlottesville (then Bikram Yoga Charlottesville) the next year – and found her potential for happiness fulfilled.
Yoga has not only helped her recover from physical issues, it has allowed her to become a more patient mother, loving wife and friend. Lizzie loves being able to lead others through the series that inspired her to change her life for the better. She is so thankful for the Charlottesville community of practitioners and is looking forward to the journey ahead.
