“My first experience with Elizabeth’s yoga class was excellent. I had no idea what to expect, but her instruction was easy to follow and I was met with a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. I also love the convenience of having yoga available within the Hereford Zone after work hours.”

Beth, Parkton, MD

“I’d like to thank Elizabeth for the wonderful 6 week yoga session. I’ve learned so much from her in a short amount of time. My favorite part was learning 5-6 different breathing methods which I now use during my daily life. She’s an inspiration.”

Marguerite, Parkton, MD

“I really enjoy Elizabeth’s teaching, she makes sure to take both mind and body into consideration in each class.”

Mary Beth, White Hall, MD

“I started yoga with some trepidation. Elizabeth has made my concerns disappear. I am not a spiritual or easygoing person. The class has done wonders to help me relax and build strength in my body and mind. Great experience all around.”

Curt, Parkton, MD

“Because of the yoga session, I’ve improved my stability and am able to stand on one leg for longer periods of time. Elizabeth’s yoga style is very helpful to beginner students. I enjoyed how she sent us follow-up information after each class so we could get a better understanding of yoga or prepare for the upcoming class.”

Maria, White Hall, MD

“It was my New Year’s resolution to get back to a higher level of physical activity after two cancer surgeries, radiation, and hormone therapy. A friend told me about Elizabeth’s wellness-based approach to yoga and I thought it would be a good place to start. I knew from my first visit to her warm and welcoming studio that I’d made a great decision! Her cues are clear and easy to follow and she offers accommodations (blocks, straps, blankets) to help you comfortably reach/maintain poses. Her focus on staying present, or coming back to your breath and “leaving your to-do list behind for a time” has been so beneficial for me! I really enjoy the experience and plan to continue.”

Beth, Hunt Valley, MD

“Elizabeth is a thoughtful and fun instructor. She provides a comfortable atmosphere with clear cues, explanations, and a respect for each person’s process. I love that she challenges us with balance and strengthening activities and makes sure that each session has unique elements, so it is never boring!” 

Nicole, Parkton, MD

After the yoga classes, I noticed I felt calmer overall. This was surprising because I don’t feel like I ‘worked‘ hard to achieve that feeling. I am so used to having to grind at everything that it was a refreshing break. Thanks for the amazing yoga practice!”

Melissa, Jarrettsville, MD

“I always looked forward to going to Elizabeth’s yoga classes. Elizabeth is a wonderful teacher that puts a lot of thought into practice. Her instructions are so clear and concise that you never need to watch her, but just listen. Every practice is a little different and Elizabeth always gives modifications for us beginners/older folk. I’m excited about her new venue and hope to see her there soon.”

Linda, Parkton, MD

“Elizabeth provides a wellness-focused yoga practice that reflects her holistic background, knowledge, and beliefs. My body and spirit benefitted from this session and I will continue!”

Pat, Baltimore, MD

“Finding Elizabeth’s studio has been a complete practice changer!! I will be forever spoiled with intimate, personal, and fun practices; you can’t get these types of experiences in big corporation companies. I am excited to continue to practice with her!”

Danielle, White Hall, MD

“I noticed an increase in flexibility because of the yoga classes. I’m also able to manage stress more successfully. I enjoy how Elizabeth explains the yoga poses and provides a relaxing atmosphere for class.”

Linda, Parkton, MD

“I absolutely loved taking Elizabeth’s yoga class! I recently lost a good deal of weight and haven’t done much exercise in years. I was able to do almost all of the posses and always felt so good after class. I highly recommend taking her classes!” 

Margie, Stewartstown, PA

“I would highly recommend taking Elizabeth’s yoga classes. I enjoyed it and love her teaching style. I like the small classes and plan to take another one.” 

Kim, Hereford, MD

“I really like how Elizabeth reviews what we’ll be doing before the class starts. It’s helpful when she provides details on how an exercise will benefit us if we practice it at home regularly. Elizabeth is a very calm instructor. I appreciate how she gives individual instruction to people with different needs and watches out for us safety-wise.”

Jain, Parkton, MD

“I find yoga to be incredibly intimidating but worked up the courage to sign up for a 6 week session. Elizabeth immediately makes you feel welcome and the environment is warm. Her instructional style makes it extremely easy to follow along, and her encouragement makes you feel like a champion in each pose! After class, I feel refreshed, calm, and already looking forward to the next one!”

Jenn, Shrewsbury, PA

“I noticed an increased range of motion and moments of mental rest because of the yoga classes. I liked how the classes offer a variety of movements and are relaxing, mentally. Thank you for a wonderful first yoga experience!”

Tom, Jarrettsville, MD

“I love Elizabeth’s teaching style. She explains each yoga pose and is always willing to help us. I like how Elizabeth is a kind, gentle teacher, yet pushes us to improve each week. I always leave class feeling renewed.”

Joanne, Freeland, MD

“I really enjoyed Elizabeth’s class. She is well prepared, and the variety made each week exciting. I enjoyed her teaching styles for a range of different learners (visual, auditory, tactile, etc.) I also enjoyed the social aspect of meeting new classmates in both the day and evening classes.”

Doreen, White Hall, MD

“I’ve noticed some improved flexibility because of the yoga classes. I like the variety of the class sequences. Each class is different, and I enjoy the way Elizabeth reviews the class layout before each practice.”

Diana, Parkton, MD

“Yoga was fun!!! I had a great time and was more relaxed after your class than I have been in a while. I’ve had a lot of stress at work and it just felt good to breathe and stretch.”

Bonnie, Fallston, MD

“It was great taking yoga with Elizabeth. She is a wonderful instructor, introducing us to a lot of different practices and techniques which also keep it fun and interesting. If you had to miss a class, she made every accommodation to try and help you make up the class. She is a great person and I look forward to more classes with her in the future.”

Dana, Monkton, MD

“Elizabeth gets us interacting with one another with questions or thoughts sent to us before each class. She’s got a wonderfully relaxing way of teaching – she does not judge, giving us suggestions on how to do a yoga position “easier” on our body’s ability. Elizabeth explains and demonstrates each new maneuver and its benefits on the body or mind. Physically I feel much more limber – and always leave each class feeling mentally relaxed!”

From a Student in the Spring Session, 2024

“I had never been to a yoga class. I was always hesitant because I did not know any positions, but Elizabeth was fantastic with explanations. I was very comfortable because Elizabeth showed us what to do and encouraged us to go at our own pace. Practicing yoga has made me slow down and breathe. I have been doing some of the core strengthening positions I learned.”

From a Student in the Spring Session, 2024

“I think Elizabeth’s style is perfect in all ways. The benefits I get from her classes are: Physically – more flexibility and less pain, Mentally & Emotionally & Spiritually – calmer and happier overall. I like how she explains each pose, does a variety of routines and includes poses that covers the entire body at various levels of ease/difficulty. I especially appreciate that she provides an atmosphere conducive to mentally/emotionally/spiritually attain the maximum benefit by “decorating” the room visually and with low lighting. Elizabeth really cares!”

From a Student in the Winter Session, 2024

“After the yoga classes, I notice I’m not feeling as tight. As a first-time yoga student, I could understand what we were doing. Elizabeth provides clear instructions and breaks things down for a beginner. She speaks loudly and clearly. I’d highly recommend this class to others and look forward to the next session.”

From a Student in the Winter Session, 2024

“I’ve noticed I feel more relaxed and more willing to ward off stress before it starts. I’m practicing better breathing during the day and stretching more overall. I like how Elizabeth builds in time for the attendees to get acquainted. It makes the class feel more personal, less sterile.”

From a Student in the Winter Session, 2024

“I’ve enjoyed Elizabeth’s classes and am looking forward to more! I enjoy her style and overall balance in her instruction. As well the engagement of her personal service to each individual is uplifting.”

From a Student in the Winter Session, 2023

“I noticed an increase in flexibility in my daily movements. I liked Elizabeth’s clear explanations of each pose and the manner in how we executed those poses. It was a good introduction for a beginner like me.”

From a Student in the Fall Session, 2023

“The yoga classes helped me take time for myself and be present. Elizabeth is engaging with the class and encourages us to practice outside of the weekly sessions. I’ve already signed up for the next session!”

From a Student in the Fall Session, 2023

“As a woman in my 80s who has never done anything similar and was quite apprehensive, I particularly appreciated Elizabeth’s calm, matter-of-fact attitude. She never made me feel “lesser” when I was unable to do the poses as well as I would have 20 years ago!”

From a Student in the Spring Session, 2023

“I really enjoy Elizabeth’s yoga classes. Elizabeth is a wonderful teacher. She is clearly passionate about what she does. Most importantly, I never felt insecure about not being a flexible yogi.”

From a Student in the Spring Session, 2023

“Emotionally, these classes have been so beneficial to me – meeting new people, new “funky” studio, lovely view! Living Sublimely Well Yoga was a wonderful find … the teacher and studio!”

From a Student in the Winter Session, 2023

“I haven’t needed to go to the chiropractor since taking weekly yoga classes. My lower back pain is pretty much gone! I loved the openness of the yoga studio! Being able to see outside and have a relaxing environment was amazing.

I love taking yoga with Elizabeth! The classes really are for any level of yogi. I love the atmosphere of the studio, her teaching style, and how the classes were laid out.”

From a Student in the Autumn Session, 2022

“After yoga, I’ve enjoyed more calmness, focus, less physical pain with less stiffness, and more openness in the joints. Elizabeth is very clear and descriptive with each posture. The yoga studio is calming, open, safe, and comfortable, and feels close to nature.

From a Student in the Autumn Session, 2022

“Elizabeth is a fantastic instructor. She is very welcoming, and her studio space is great. I like that she keeps the class size small. She challenges her students without pushing us past our limits, and works with what we want from her. This is a great class for everyone, whether you are a beginner or have been practicing for years.”

From a Student in the Spring Session, 2022

“I leave Elizabeth’s classes feeling lighter and calmer. The atmosphere in the studio is friendly, casual, and peaceful and the classes are great for all levels of yoga experience! I will be continuing to sign up for her classes!”

From a Student in the Spring Session, 2022

Private Yoga Sessions

We Can Do This. Together.

Remember, I am merely a facilitator in your healing process.

Through yoga and qigong, you’ll learn tools related to breath, body awareness, physical movement, and relaxation.

I’ll offer guidance (based on personal experience), empathy (from understanding what you’re going through), and evidence-based suggestions (because of my professional nursing background)… but it’s up to you to “do” the “work”.

This is YOUR healing journey. And, I’d be honored to take the ride with you.

Let’s dive in!

Space is limited. There are just SIX openings available for private yoga sessions. Email Elizabeth to get started today!
