This entire experience had allowed me to take time for me. I needed to do it. My body is changing and as I reflect upon the seven session experience, I think about that first moment of the first session. I really had no idea what I was in for. What I did know was that I was going to take time for ME and no matter what, it was in the interest of my body and my mind.
I have just completed a program of seven sessions with Elizabeth Gross. The Thai yoga (bodywork) she provided helped to greatly reduce areas of tension that I’d been experiencing for some time. I also found Elizabeth to be knowledgable in her practice of Ayurveda, and along with her attention to detail and intuition I found the program to be a comprehensive approach to health and well being. She is a competent practitioner and I highly recommend her work.
Elizabeth is my Thai Yoga massage therapist, yoga teacher, and is an amazing yogini wise beyond her years. She breathes life into her bodywork and helped me transmute my pain body into a healing tool by educating me and encouaging me in using mindfulness practices. Her bodywork helped me to connect, uncover and release layers of blocked emotional pain stored in my physical being. I love how she supplements her practice with custom made creams and tinctures to further support the healing journey.
I have completed two programs of Thai Yoga Massage with Elizabeth and I feel very lucky to have done so. For starters, the massage is wonderful. The consultations have been key in helping me develop tools for a healthier and more mindful self. For someone who enjoys holistic health care, Elizabeth is particularly perceptive in her diagnosis and suggestions for change that are obtainable and sustainable. I highly recommend her Thai Yoga Program or trying a single treatment.
Having Elizabeth as a teacher has gave me a more detailed understanding of what I should embody as a Thai Yoga Practitioner. Not only is she very knowledgeable about what she does, but extremely devoted to her practice. She has her own unique way of teaching that is clear and easy to understand, that will enable you to retain all that you learn so that you too can become a practitioner of Thai Yoga.
I enjoyed very much learning from Elizabeth. She was very knowledgeable, concise, and straightforward in her instruction. I admired her composure and professional attitude, it was very inspiring. I hope to exemplify these qualities myself as a future instructor.
I had the pleasure of training under Elizabeth in Florida during my CTP-1 SomaVeda® certification program. She is an extremely effective Thai Yoga teacher because of her calm and gentle nature. She is concise and corrects errors with gracious ease.
Elizabeth’s yoga classes always seem to be exactly what I need, both spiritually and physically. Her classes have helped me stay grounded, challenged my body, and inspired my spirit. Her deep connection and gratitude toward the Earth are what makes her classes so special. The love she shares for the practice, and her skills to teach all levels, as well as her beautiful spirit are what make each session so inspiring!
I can feel Ellie’s dedication to herself, as a teacher, and in return the magnitude of the work itself. She’s helped me find a ‘homey’ place to rest in my body. When I first entered Ellie’s class, I remember a sweetness in the air. I felt held in her presence; that I had entered a safe field of exploration. I felt a breathe of freshness over my whole body system, as I was encouraged to explore internally, at my own pace.
I love Elizabeth’s classes. I can always be ‘me.’ No matter what kind of mood I am in, however I am feeling about myself, I always know that by the end of class I will feel better. She has an extremely kind soul and I trust her knowledge and level of care in yoga. I feel safe to practice at my own pace and am encouraged to be brave, to try new things and laugh when they don’t go as expected!
