About the Teacher:
Elizabeth first discovered yoga in 2004 after serving active duty in the US Air Force. She was looking for a workout that was challenging yet healing and nurturing to the body. She found yoga, Bikram specifically. In 2008 she traveled to Acapulco Mexico to complete her Bikram Yoga Teacher Training and in 2010 she went to Barcelona, Spain for Advanced Teacher Training. She loves all things Yoga and continuously travels the globe studying various styles of Yoga. She studied Synergy/Partner Yoga in Mancora, Peru in 2010 and in 2012 she completed her Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training in Ubud Bali and received her RYT 200. In 2014, she completed a 2 month sojourn in India, where she was studying Yoga and Ayurveda, and completed her Vinyasa Flow Advanced Teacher Training (RYT 500). Elizabeth leads yoga retreats around the world, combining her love of yoga and travel.
Jonny began his yoga practice in New York City in 2007. After immediately realizing what an incredible effect the practice had on his body, mind, and spirit he began exploring different styles of yoga and began regularly practicing Vinyasa and Bikram. In 2014 he decided to further his knowledge of yoga by attending Sterling Hot Yoga Works in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. Now a Yoga Alliance certified teacher, he has since been teaching regularly at Pure Om Bethesda. Jonny furthered his yoga practice this summer by attending Jared McCann’s first yoga teacher training in Brooklyn, NY.
