After spending the last 14 years running, 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 yoga teacher training journey and completed her RYT-200 as well as her RYT-300 certification. With an emphasis on the physical and mental needs of her students, 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.
