It affects the way in which we perceive and interact with our world: with ourselves, our friends and family, our environment, our workplace and everything with which we come into contact.
Dysregulation of the nervous system, which is the result of unprocessed trauma, contributes to myriad issues such as anxiety, depression, chronic inflammation, autoimmune diseases, insomnia, lack of motivation, social issues, PTSD, and more.

I have a love of any style of Yoga but Ishta is my firm favourite. I have been doing yoga for nearly 20yrs and studied teacher training several years ago. It’s such an important part of my life. I can’t imagine life without yoga. I teach Vinyasa, Flow and Yin at EmbodiMe. I like to bring fun & lightness into yoga coupled with relaxation. Life can be challenging sometimes and we can learn so much about how to navigate our challenges on the mat. It is so amazing to watch people learn about how strong they are while at the same time being gentle and able to be happy on their life’s journey. My students inspire me in every class I teach. I’d love you to join me in class.
Hello xo it’s so great to have you here.
I founded EmbodiMe, but I don’t feel like I’m solely responsible for its creation.
Rather, I feel like my life has been what it has in order for me to learn how to impart these teachings, which are steeped in ancient wisdom and proven by modern day science.
Let me explain.
My life as a child and a young adult was marked with significant traumas. From institutional rape to medical traumas and a lot in between, I have experienced a lot.
I have also suffered from the ailments that arise from trauma: anxiety, depression, panic attacks, insomnia, nervous system dysregulation, eating disorders, substance abuse, suicidal tendencies, self harm, headaches, leaky gut, stomach aches, back issues, jaw issues, skin problems, and more.
I worked so hard in many different types of therapy, bodywork, yoga, meditation, breathwork, trauma therapy, IoPT, counselling, you name it, to heal myself.
I knew deep down that life could be full of joy and freedom. It was something I believed in my soul.
I also knew innately that life could be lived with joy and freedom on the physical plane; that the world was full of beauty and here to be enjoyed as a human being.
I didn’t want to transcend myself in order to be happy. Transcendence just didn’t make sense to me: why would I be embodied if I was meant to leave my body to find peace?
It was when the inspiration came to create EmbodiMe that I started to gain a deeper understanding of why I went through so much.
You see, EmbodiMe is the culmination of everything that I studied and learned over the last 30 years in order to heal myself from all my trauma.
I have infused it into movement, meditation and mindfulness to create an approach to healing that is deeply embodied: we use our bodies as a medium to stabilise ourselves, find our innate inner joy and heal ourselves.
The science is in: we know that working with our body is the key to creating lasting change in our lives; healing ourselves in this way actually alters our physiology and our neurology.
You are your best healing tool. You have everything you need inside you to live the life you want to live.
Step into yourself. Embrace your humanness and everything life has to offer.
You are a living miracle. It’s time to remember why you came here.
Love and hugs, Liz
