I started my exploration of Yoga in early 1990s while living in England. My interest in Yoga grew rapidly and eventually after several years of studies, I have completed requirements for certifications to become a Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist but learning continues.
I have learned from my studies and my own practice that true empowerment can only be achieved when the approach to Yoga is modified based on our needs. Movement from posture to posture has many elements, each affecting each one of us in a different way. I emphasize this uniqueness to help my students to find their own path on this journey. I teach gentle, traditional Yoga, focusing on the deep inner experience where the physical body alignment of each asana is just a beginning, a door which leads to deeper exploration of all associated sensations (physical, emotional, spiritual). My classes enable the students to reconnect with their bodies, to become aware of life of their body and of its wisdom and to develop understanding of one’s abilities and limitations to make the practice more effective and beneficial in support of the spiritual path and physically and mentally healthy life. I welcome everyone who comes to my classes, without exceptions, as I know that Yoga is good for everyone and that everyone is good for Yoga. We are all where and how we should be and that is a perfect starting point in one’s individual journey of Yoga, so come embark with us on this journey, at the Elevated Yoga Studio!
Our founder George, and all of our teachers and therapists/healers are here to help inspire both you and your practice. Since our styles are diverse, we encourage you to come try a variety of classes, healing sessions and workshops.

Liz Giles, C.M.T., C.A. is a practicing Colorado licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Aromatherapist, budding Herbalist and owner of Health In Essence LLC in Lafayette, Colorado, now with a new office right here at Elevated Yoga Studio in Longmont. Her first career was as a Graphic Artist of 14 years, starting in High School.
She started her massage career in the late 80’s under the mentorship of William Vogel, then Lead Massage Therapist of 7 Springs Resort in Pennsylvania. She discovered her gift of touch while working with and on feature film crews in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and has worked on several major movie stars, but the real stars are the people she works with everyday from all walks of life who may not be famous, but take charge of their health by being proactive.She graduated from Scherer’s Academy of Natural Healing in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1991. She gained her certification in 2009 in Holistic Health and in 2012 for Clinical Aromatherapy at Front Range Community College. She has also completed the Foundations Program in Clinical Herbology at the Colorado School for Clinical Herbalism in 2013. She is a member of the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) and of the American Herbalist Guild (AHG) and continues to push forward with studies in these holistic fields.
Her philosophy is that the body has innate wisdom to heal itself and asks only that we support it in the nature it was designed to function in, rest, proper nourishment, hydration and movement. When our bodies become out of balance, we offer it nurturing and a gentle nudge it needs to reset it’s own compass in the direction of health. Please visit her website for all of her services.
I began practicing qigong (chee-gong), a Daoist movement meditation, to grow in trust, joy, and freedom. Qigong helps to open physical and energetic pathways in the body through gentle movement, guided breath, and visualization. Practitioners experience increased vitality, relaxation, improved circulation, and better overall physical and emotional health. In this class, you will learn simple sequences that you can practice at home or in nature, and experience profound changes in your wellness.I am on an evolving journey as a peacemaker and have found qigong to be an important practice for integrating inner and outer experiences, and coming to rest in my center while also yielding to change. This discovery led me to write a book, Harmonizing Heavens and Earth: A Daoist Shamanic Approach to Elicitive Peacework, which explores my personal experiences with qigong, and draws connections to how qigong helps us develop skills for transforming conflict. Currently, I am applying this practice in the field of restorative justice. I am the director of Longmont Community Justice Partnership, where I facilitate peacemaking processes and train others in restorative justice practices. I am a member of the Lazuli Daoist Dipper Arts School, and an ordained Daoshi.

I’ve been practicing yoga off and on since I was 9 years old. In 2016 my usual teacher at the time, went away on vacation. That’s when I discovered Elevated Yoga Studio and my new teacher George. Not long after, I signed up for his teacher training program which greatly changed my life for the better. Now I find joy and satisfaction in sharing my yoga teaching and practice with others.
We're a unique yoga studio dedicated to recovering what we believe is the essence of yoga: a traditional yoga philosophy and practice available to everyone.
