Liz Lark

Liz has taught since 1995, is a BWY Diploma holder (1994), and is a registered 500-hour Yoga Alliance teacher. Her teaching and practice is rooted in Astanga Vinyasa (Derek Ireland being her main teacher through the 1990s), however increasingly she is drawing inspiration from the subtle teachings of the Bihar School of Yoga (visualisation, yoga nidra) and other arts to inspire and liberate the spirit. Liz holds both a BA and MA in 3D and performing arts, focusing on life drawing and clay sculpture, ideas which she weaves into her teaching to draw on the body as a moving metaphor and an alchemical vessel for constant renewal. She specialises in a creative choreographic vinyasa yoga, maintaining safe alignment and adapting postures to individual needs and ability. She has taught actors Ralph Fiennes and Alan Rickman, and works with musicians the Monteverdi choir, led by Sir John Eliot Gardiner, and pianist Ludovico Einaudi. Liz is also the author of seven yoga books and a practice dvd ‘Yogalibre’. (Freestyle yoga)
