Teacher Description

After spending the last 13 years of running- the sidewalks, her mouth, away, etc. –something seemed to be missing from Lija’s regular running routine. With some gentle nudges from the Lancaster yoga community, Lija began practicing yoga at West End and fell in love. Subsequently, she embarked on the Create Karma teaching training journey and completed her RYT-200 certification. With an emphasis on the physical and mental needs of runners and cyclists, Lija strives to help her students re-remember the practice of listening- to their bodies, themselves, and their voices. A teacher at heart, Lija also has an M.Ed in English Education and occasionally quotes Nel Noddings and laments over comma rules.
