Director, Bikram Yoga Corvallis

Elizabeth started her education with a B.S. in  chemistry and biology in 1993.  She found her passion and life purpose as she graduated from Bikram’s teacher training in 2001, and she supplemented all the concepts she finds most intriguing and powerful with her certificate from the Hypnosis Training Institute in 2012.  Elizabeth opened Bikram Yoga Corvallis in 2002 and has been teaching there since.

I came to this yoga in 2010 looking for the next step on my path to nonviolence. In every way, I found much more than I expected. 

 After five years of living overseas, I landed in Corvallis and was relieved to find that there was a home waiting for me in this studio. No matter what else has happened in my life, this practice has been a consistent place of learning and healing for me. I’ve been grateful to have this space to put myself back together, to learn and to grow. Now I’m honored to be a teacher here and have the opportunity to hold the space for others to embark on their own journey to find their best selves.

It took me many years of practice before I truly realized how important this is. What finally dawned on me was that if I could control my breathing I could then exert influence over my body and eventually over my mind, as well. I have devoted myself to regular practice for many years and every time I step into the room I am grateful for the chance to do so.

I am a Mother of 6 children, and a Grandmother of 9. My biggest addiction is BIKRAM YOGA! My one wish is that we change the world one yogi at a time, and that as we age we always use “Integrity” in our life, to do what we do when someone is looking and when they are not. I love what this yoga does for me and the yoga community.

I find resolution in coming to know myself more fully in this practice. My goal is to share with others the healing therapy that can be awakened by becoming completely present in ones body. Here. Now. On the line.

Ita believes in the power of collective wisdom and the importance of developing awareness through connection. She finds profound inspiration in nature and complements her life passions with the discipline of yoga. Ita’s dedication to yoga has helped her acknowledge some of her patterns and move towards a more centered self. You will often find her practicing with her mother.

I attended a yoga class on the very first day Elizabeth opened her studio. I’ve been coming ever since.

For years, it’s been on the back of my mind that I wanted to attend teacher training after I retired from my career. After a dear friend died, I realized I shouldn’t put my dreams on hold. I attended teacher training in Thailand in the fall of 2014. I now have the opportunity to teach in Corvallis and absolutely love it.

Louisa completed Raja Yoga Teacher Training in the Spring of 2018 and started teaching the 2nd day back from training. She knows for sure that yoga heals, since she went to training with pain and now can practice asanas, her nursing profession and enjoy activities she loves with minimal to no pain.

Erika believes strongly in a daily practice, and using the yoga to mindfully find and challenge one’s edge.

Pushing through and beyond perceived limitations became more tangible during Training as trainees were instructed by Craig Villani to “Break Through the Boundary Line.” In so doing, Bikram’s words ring true: “The worst crime in human life is that, because of lack of Self Realization, we always underestimate ourselves.”.
