ITHACA - 2025

JUNE - JULY 2025

Join me this Summer in Ithaca for a practice week.
Week 1:
07 JUN - 14 JUN 2025
Week 2:
19 JUL - 26 JUL 2025
What is a practice week?

Practice weeks originate in India with teachers that only offer Yoga, and you decide on the rest. This way you can work according to your budget, be in retreat, or on a holiday with a strong emphasis on deepening your Yoga practice, or starting it.

This week offers you the opportunity and space, with Lizi's support to go deeper in the physical layer of your Yoga practice. You will receive adjustments, insight and develop a deep movement practice rooted in the Ashtanga Methodology, which is intentional about your breath, focusing your gaze and observing your experience in the pose you are attempting.

Lizi will teach a functional approach for your body allowing the tissues to receive the benefits of the medicine. Lizi will also share philosophy in a very simple way to connect your life into the layers and postures of your practice in this very season of your life. Lizi has been trained, held and guided under some of the best teachers in the world.

It's been 12 years living in the Heart of this methodology for her, and it's empowered the gentle but strong guidance of a functional approach to yoga she shares, rather than dogma and rigidity. This approach allows the prana in your body to manifest and move with a sense of vitality, balance, stability and calmness.
