My Yoga is challenging but I make it accessible for each person's unique needs and goals. I've been teaching in Central CT for over 20 years. Yoga will make your body and mind balanced, well, and calm.
I am a certified Kripalu yoga teacher.
It is such a gift for me to share yoga with others and to hear how it has changed their lives in more ways than they expected. So, what I enjoy most is spending time with people who are making a big difference in their lives.
Liz Hall is the finest yoga instructor I have found in over twenty years; finely trained, experienced, intelligent, kind, attentive, precise, thorough and effective. After 17+ years working behind a desk, I’d become quite ‘out of shape’, inside and out. Soon after starting classes with Liz, forgotten muscles began to re-appear and, with just one to two classes per week, that toning trend continues. Due to Liz’s carefully designed sessions, in only three short months, my posture, muscle tone, strength and stamina are quickly improving and, amazingly, I have regained full range of motion in my neck for the first time since a serious car accident 41 years ago! Although initially hesitant to take a group class, I’ve been 100% comfortable. For me, group classes with Liz are on a par with private sessions I’ve had elsewhere around the country. Whether there are three students or ten, Liz constantly observes to make sure that each of us is in correct posture ensuring safety at all times. Whenever a correction is necessary, I find her instruction to be clear and supportive. With Liz’s honed expertise and guidance, I’ve watched as students of all ages receive the personalized attention and instruction necessary to navigate any individual physical issues and safely participate in yoga postures. In short, finding Liz Hall Yoga has been the very best aspect of our recent move to Meriden! - Cindy
New students fill out a health form and a release form so that they know what to expect and I know about their unique health situation. I speak with them before class and point out certain things to be aware of and perhaps how to modify for their needs. New people can try different classes and see which work for them best for an introductory rate of 4 weeks for $40.
I have been doing ongoing training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga in Lenox, Massachusetts. I have been teaching yoga full time for 19 years. I have done the 200 and 500 hour teacher trainings and many, many more trainings for Yoga teachers.
People can pay three different ways. They can choose which way works best for them.
1. There is the series price which is the most economical. It is $12/class but they sign up for an entire series coming to class at least once/week. They can pay $8 for a second class per week. They can also deduct for classes that they know they will be missing when they sign up.
2. There is a punch card price of 10 classes for $150. This expires in 6 months.
3. They can pay as they come. This is $17/class.
I had many physical problems with my body. When I started doing yoga regularly the problems went away. This was no small feat. I had a very bad back for 15 years and no longer have that and many other problems. I know this sounds silly but it is as if I'm getting younger and younger because I'm getting stronger and more flexible even now at age 55.
I enjoy working one on one with people who have some sort of limitation. We have had very good results when I'm able to ask them about their limitations and I can give them a modification that makes them heal. This is very rewarding.
My students are mostly over 45 years old. I specialize with an older population of people at senior centers and retirement homes.
It is best to do Yoga regularly. Results are amazing after even three consecutive weeks.
There are many styles of yoga. Some are more athletic and some are more therapeutic. It is good to ask the teacher about their style and who that style is good for.
