Welcome to Day 21 of 30 Days of Inspiration
Happy Monday! Today I'm talking with Elizabeth Sitzler about you guessed it... Yoga, work ethic, dedication and staying true to yourself
Elizabeth and I have been creating for about three years now, and I thought it would be great to sit down with Elizabeth to share her story and practice with you.
Elizabeth is a devout student, practitioner and teacher of Ashtanga Yoga. Her main teachers are Jörgen Christiansson and Sharath Jois. She is the Mysore Director at Prana Das Yoga Therapy & Healing Arts Center.
While she was studying history and political science, applying to law school, and competing as a Division 1 tennis player, her father persuaded her to try yoga for the first time, thinking it might help her manage stress. The dynamism of the practice instantly drew her in and she quickly fell in love with the beauty of linking movement, breath, and mindfulness. Soon enough, she was practicing yoga every day; experiencing positive transformations in mind, body, and spirit.
As she delved deeper in the practice she discovered Sri K Pattabhi Jois’ Ashtanga Yoga, the Ashtanga Yoga School of Philadelphia, and her first teacher: David Garrigues. The integrity and structure of the Ashtanga Yoga system was a perfect and natural fit for her. Elizabeth taught at and helped run David’s School, AYS Philadelphia, from 2013-2017 before opening her own program at Prana Das.
Elizabeth is always a student, striving to learn more about herself, the practice, and how she can guide others through their own journey.
