Meet the Co-Founders
After being in a corporate environment for 15+ years, there a came a time when we began to really think about what we were doing with our lives. I remember looking at the clock in the corporate conference room I sat in regularly, watching the time tick by, and wondering if this was really my purpose.
It’s fascinating to watch how the world responds to our thinking and our hearts once a change starts. Soon after that clock-watching experience, we both left our corporate jobs and entered into a consulting business, working with executives on their self-awareness and leadership abilities. This business expanded over the next few years. However, we soon realized we wanted something more in our lives--a spiritual adventure, a new community of people, a life filled with heart and yoga.
While defining that “something,” I attended an immersion Yoga Teacher Training.
I came back full of creative ideas on how we could develop a unique and transformative teacher training school that embodies all the elements we are passionate about, for an audience with whom we are excited to work. We found so many opportunities to create a different kind of school that went beyond looking at asanas and the technical teaching content. We chose to incorporate more of what is “true” in the study of yoga, ourselves and our place in this world. At the same time, we were deep into our own development working with amazing therapists, coaches, meditation teachers and yoga instructors. Our lives were transforming as we created the vision of how to share transformation with others.
We are avid yogis and meditation practitioners but we aren’t experts. Sometimes we didn’t know what we were doing! Yet, somehow the people, the support and the expertise seemed to materialize when we needed it. So we soldiered on. It wasn’t easy and it was very scary at times.
All our fears about safety, security, money, and our future came to light. We faced them, struggled, worked through them and kept moving forward. At times we’re in awe of why and how it all happened. We know, however, we are doing what we love and are meant to do.
It is our heartfelt wish that your experience with our school far exceeds a Yoga Teacher Training. We want to offer you a new way to approach your life and your teaching--more of you, increased authenticity, a bigger heart, a freer life.
We can’t wait to meet you on the path!
Love, Liz & Chris
