Liz Crawford teaches weekly Sea Change Yoga trauma-informed classes at Esther Residence, a transitional program for women who are leaving incarceration and/or treatment program.  

Liz starting practicing yoga as a teenager and dove deeper into her practice while earning a degree in Health Promotion and Asian Studies at Appalachian State University. In 2010 she completed the Subtle Yoga Teacher Training Program in Asheville, North Carolina and recently earned her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from The University of New England, which has expanded her knowledge of the human body and mind. Liz has experience teaching yoga in a variety of settings, from traditional yoga studios, to psychiatric and correctional facilities and has determined that a therapeutic application of yoga has the power to help people discover their own resiliency. Liz views yoga teaching more as "yoga-sharing." Holding a safe and sacred space for exploration of mind and body is key to this yoga sharing. Liz’s light-hearted and nurturing energy make her classes truly welcoming to all experience levels and body types.  Her intention for all participants is for them to connect to the abundant peace and stillness within themselves, where real strength and resiliency are found.
