Elizabeth Heller was regularly practicing Tae Kwo Do alongside her five-year-old son when she took her first yoga class as a favor to another mom. Hooked, she continued to practice yoga at home as a form of centering, which transformed her martial arts practice.

It was then that she fell in love with its transformative power: her life, spirit, and body had never felt more peaceful, vibrant, and energized.
