Liz Heffernan, C-IAYT Yoga Therapist, E-RYT 500, is an international yoga teacher who draws from over two decades of personal yoga practice, over 25 years of teaching and extensive training in the Hatha yoga systems of Anusara, Ashtanga, Integrative Yoga Therapy, and Kripalu.  She currently directs and leads yoga teacher trainings and workshops in worldwide locations and online, provides unique one-to-one mentoring for yoga teachers wishing to improve their skills and delivery, instructs daily yoga classes and offers private yoga sessions. Additionally, Liz serves as a mentor and faculty member for the Kripalu School of Integrative Yoga Therapy, an IAYT approved 1000 hour yoga program.

Her personal journey with yoga began as a young teenager when through a random, yet auspicious, opportunity she took a yoga course at a nearby college.  Here, in Savasana, she experienced a sense of peace and wellbeing, a feeling that was in profound contrast to her daily expression of herself.  It took fifteen years for the seed that was planted then to germinate into a dedicated practice.  Now, after 25 years of daily yoga, Liz is humbly grateful to this life-affirming path that consistently realigns her physical body, thoughts and innermost intentions with more joy and a greater vibrancy.

Liz's dynamic teaching style is influenced by many, many wonderful yoga teachers.   These include Ashtanga Yoga’s Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, Tim Miller, Nancy Gilgoff and Bhavani Maki; Anusara Yoga’s Desiree Rumbaugh, Jenny Otto, Noah Maze, and Jim & Ruthie Bernaert; IYT's Joseph Le Page; and yoga philosophers Ram Das, Douglas Brooks and Carlos Pomeda.

Liz is known is for her ability to bridge the gap between the ancient perspectives of yoga and contemporary daily life.  Her teaching weaves together philosophy, creative sequencing, clear alignment, mindful breathing and compassionate self-inquiry to form a tapestry that reflects her heartfelt commitment to this transformative path.
