"I love introducing people to the timeless wisdom of Chinese Medicine – especially how it helps us find balance and self-awareness. My unique style of treatment is to combine acupuncture with other Chinese modalities including cupping and moxabustion, and to incorporate bodywork in each session with my additional expertise in Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® and Chinese Tuina massage."

Liz came to yoga first for exercise, but soon discovered it was a great source for stress relief as well. Whenever she was stressed, she found herself heading to yoga class. Wanting to deepen her understanding of yoga, Liz studied at the Kashi Ashram in Atlanta under the guidance of Swami Jaya Devi Bhagavati and the senior teachers. Here, she completed her teacher training certification and learned about all the ways yoga can affect your lifestyle beyond your physical health. Her teaching style is centered around welcoming anyone to yoga who wants to practice, no matter their experience or body type, and being kind to yourself and noncompetitive in class. Seva (sanskrit for service) is an important part of her yoga practice “beyond the mat”.
Joel began practicing yoga at age 12 when he discovered the book Yoga and Health by Selvarajan Yesudian and Elisabeth Haich at his grandfather’s house. At this early age he mastered yoga poses using only this book for guidance and continued practicing by himself on and off over the years. Many years later he found himself enamored with Ashtanga yoga and currently practices and teaches this vigorous form of yoga. He has earned a 200 Hr. teaching certificate and has studied under Sharmila (granddaughter of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois) in India, Doug & David Swenson, Kino MacGregor, Ginger Garner, Amanda McMaine, and many other dedicated yoga instructors. Joel has studied and practiced Kundalini yoga and provides workshops in this energetic practice. He plays the harmonium for local Kirtan events.

Eden Summer Davis
Eden was introduced to yoga seven years ago by a therapist who prescribed yoga as a tool for learning to cope with the overwhelming anxiety and stress of law school. She has since had a multitude of wonderful, heart-centered teachers with Yoga Bliss in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Yoga Works in Los Angeles, California, CorePower Yoga in Portland, Oregon, and she considers her greatest teachers those from Wild Lotus Yoga in New Orleans, Louisiana where she completed her yoga teacher training in Bhakti yoga.
In her classes, she encourages students to find gratitude, connect to the divine voice within, and honor their bodies. She believes yoga is a happiness practice meant for all bodies and truly a healing gift to be shared. She strives to integrate fun and challenging movements into sequences, believing that yoga doesn’t have to be quite so serious. Most of all, she wants to create an atmosphere that inspires students on and off the mat to find their authentic selves, allowing for everything we do to be an expression of the pure, luminous, and divine self within!
