Originally certified to teach hatha yoga almost 12 years ago by notable master teachers, Erich Schiffman and Max Strom, Elizabeth remains as dedicated to her on-going studies as she is to teaching. Her principal teachers are the incomparable meditation and tantric philosophy master, Sally Kempton and the wildly brilliant yoga master Richard Freeman. Elizabeth credits Sally Kempton as her primary influence and mentor of the last 8 years, and honors Sally’s teachings, along with Richard Freeman’s, as the foundation of what she offers in her classes. She respectfully acknowledges each of them for giving her the model of what it means to teach with the highest of integrity in the modern spiritual world.
Elizabeth’s credentials also include certification in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, Reiki Mastership through Wendy Miner of Memorial Sloane-Kettering’s Integrative Medicine Center, and extensive experience in silent retreat and Self-inquiry with Adyashanti.
As a contemporary teacher of yoga, meditation and Self-inquiry practices, Elizabeth holds space for clarity and freedom. She offers a fresh perspective which allows the ancient and esoteric to become modern and real. Students are encouraged to cultivate curiosity as they pause and breathe, deeply listening for the internal cues of Life. Primarily committed to Shriyoga’s NYC laboratory classes, Elizabeth also teaches retreats and workshops worldwide, is on faculty of the Open Center in NYC and is a guest presenter at Kripalu.
With immense gratitude she bows to Ram Dass as the teacher who opened the gates to an ever-unfolding devotional love. His teachings of his direct experience with Neem Karoli Baba intimately shifted Elizabeth’s perspective on what it is “to be here now” and more immediately, to be “still here.”
Jenna is now leading workshops and retreats around the globe bringing her love of service to another level through her Dream Weaver Yoga and Shamanic Healing ~*~ 8 THREADS OF LIGHT INTENSIVES . These are transformational teachings for the era of enLIGHTenment.
