Elizabeth Silas, E-RYT, has been teaching and loving yoga for fifteen years, both in big cities and in small towns. Her teaching addresses students’ individual alignment patterns within a sequence focused on the breath. In this way, students can safely release old patterns of moving and thinking within a vigorous practice. She is certified in Jivamukti and Ashtanga schools, and draws on many asana alignment methods as well as Pilates, exercise science, and physical therapy to inform her cueing and assisting. She currently teaches on the east side of Cleveland, where she lives with her husband and two young boys. Find her teaching and writing at elizabethsilas.com.
