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 and a super chilled dog called Leo!

I qualified as a physiotherapist (Physical Therapist) in the UK in 2001, specialized in pediatrics in 2003, and have been working with children since. I gained my Masters in Respiratory at the University College London, UK, in 2013.

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 children with complex neurological disorders, developmental delay, talipes, and torticollis. On an outpatient basis, I saw children with anxiety and breathing disorders. In my last year in the UK, I ran a community respiratory service seeing children with complex neurological disorders who were struggling with their breathing in their homes and schools. I am currently working on getting my PT registration here in the US.

 

I am also a 20+ year practitioner of yoga, have completed my 200-hour RYT yoga teacher training at Yogaview in Wilmette, and am a certified "Yoga for the Special Child" teacher where I am able to use the "Sonia Sumar" method for children with special needs.

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 and fun activities to teach children about their mind and body 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, body and breath are connected. 

  • Learning tools for relaxation, regulating emotions and managing anxiety and stress.

  • Fostering empathy, patience, resilience and focus.

  • Empowering children to accept themselves and others.

  • Nurturing positivity, confidence and self-acceptance. 

  • Enhancing creativity and imagination and promoting a growth mindset.
