Eliza Bishop is a certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor and Meditation Guide. She's been practicing for 16 years and teaching for 7. She lived 3 years in India and studied with the Iyengar family in Pune and Swati and Rajiv Chanchani of Yog-Ganga, with whom she still makes regular retreats.
For Eliza, the art of teaching means bringing human beings into an asana with complete involvement of body, mind, and breath, creating awareness that allows one, eventually, to study the mind.
In this way the yogic and Buddhist paths merge into one and have solidified a life long path for Eliza. Yoga is for every body and can teach us all that we ultimately belong to the same family.
