It's not always easy to live our
Every being has a dharma, a unique expression of Self that illuminates our world. Yet we can experience significant obstacles that stifle inner clarity and access to our limitless potential. Dharmawake is designed to inspire the deepening of practices that support us to heal and thrive holistically.
Through the core modalities of Thai Yoga Therapy, Hatha Yoga and Nature Reconnection, Dharmawake is a resource for traditional wisdom within our modern world. The dharma of its founder, Elizabeth Gross, is to ignite passion for conscious living that supports and sustains life.
Schedule of Events
Yoga is a practice of meditation in motion. By engaging in techniques for Self connection such as pranayama (breath work) and asana (posture), we support ourselves to drop into our own awakening process. I'm excited to lead several events this year that share and explore skills for balance, healing and transformation by way of Yoga practice.

Helping our world
I was born and raised in Queens New York, a mecca of cultural diversity that strongly influenced my interest in world teachings. When I moved to Upstate New York to pursue education in Women and Gender Studies, I retreated into the breathtaking landscape to heal as part of, and in reverence to, the natural world. My practice is inspired by my time spent in nature and education in various yoga and somatic systems for over a decade. My core skillset it based upon my trainings from both the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine: Thai Yoga Center in Traditional and Indigenous Thai medicine, and Embodied Flow, a system of movement arts created by Master teachers Tara Judelle and Scott Lyons. My experience leading classes, workshops and trainings in Hatha and Thai Yoga and commitment to life studentship in the field fuels my desire to continuously share these practices throughout the world.
