Meet Liz

OWNER & YOGA INSTRUCTOR

I am English, born and bred, and moved with my family to Chicago in 2017. We have 3 beautiful daughters under the ages of 10, and a super chilled dog called Leo!

I've been a pediatric physiotherapist (Physical therapist) since 2003 in the UK, where I also gained my Masters in Respiratory at the University College London, UK.

I specialized in treating children with cystic fibrosis (a breathing condition), ranging from the ages of newborn up to 18 years of age. I also treated many children with anxiety, other breathing disorders, developmental delay and special needs.

 

I am also a 20+ year practitioner of yoga, have completed my 200-hour RYT yoga teacher training at Yogaview in Wilmette, and completed Part 1 "Yoga for the Special Child", run by Sonia Sumar herself.

By combining my passions, I am on a mission to help our children live healthier, happier and more balanced lives!

Integrating pediatric physical therapy with the principles of yoga, YogiB yoga provides age-appropriate, multi-sensory, fun activities to teach children about their mind, their body and their feelings in a safe, playful and engaging environment.

 

Through yoga, breath awareness, mindfulness and meditation, YogiB yoga addresses the needs of the whole child through;

  • Developing strength, flexibility, balance, coordination and body awareness.

  • Teaching how the mind and body is connected and learning tools for relaxation, regulating emotions and managing stress.

  • Fostering empathy, patience, resilience and focus, and empowering children to accept themselves and others.

  • Enhancing creativity and imagination and promoting a growth mindset.
