After nearly a lifetime struggle with anxiety and depression, Liz sought to find relief naturally. She tried a few yoga classes at local studios and was amazed by the almost immediate transformation that breathing and gentle movements afforded her mind and body. After only a few short weeks with yoga, she knew she had discovered the “Fountain of Youth” in this beautiful practice.
A former personal trainer and group fitness instructor, Liz has always loved and felt passionate about health and wellness. After about 10 years of developing her own practice and teaching yoga, she knows she has found her calling in serving and assisting others in achieving the benefits yoga has given her. Liz strives to help her students find a deeper connection to the power within, greater awareness of their bodies and minds and promoting self-healing through breath and movement, and most importantly working with her students to create more joy-filled, peaceful, conscious lives. Liz has completed training with YogaFit and 235 hours with Devanadi School of Yoga in Minneapolis. She has spent the past six years teaching and subbing classes throughout the Twin Cities Metro area.

She is passionate about wellness and wants to apply yoga to healing as a whole person, on and off the mat. She is focused on progress and longevity in an individual’s practice by teaching safe alignment and proper technique.

Certified Yoga Instructor (RYT-200)
Nora has taken a roundabout way to meet you here at Just For Me Spa. At six years old, she immigrated from Budapest, and has lived in several countries since. She graduated with a bachelor’s in Creative Writing, after many semesters spent flirting with anthropology, art, film, and linguistics. To support herself through college, she began group fitness instructing. She taught her first yoga class in 2010 and by 2015 she was in India searching for a deeper practice.
Formal education and traveling have equally shaped her worldview, cultivated a sense of duality and understanding, and brought awareness to life’s interconnectedness. It is all these elements she brings to her classes that make them so eclectic. She has taught classes in New Zealand, India, Duluth, parks and business offices, to children and athletes, blindfolded or simply in a chair. She embraces the variety and playfulness modern yoga has to offer, and respects the therapeutic, emotional, and spiritual healing that inevitably comes with it.
