About Liz Lark

Liz Lark has been teaching yoga for 25 years. Liz is a Board Member of Yogacampus since its inception in 2003, where she teaches on their trainings and shares sequencing, adjustments and teaching skills in addition to running her own retreats and workshops (see www.lizlark.com).

Liz brings together Nature, Travel & Art with her inner travels to share Yoga through creative sequencing, somatic practises, visualisation, meditation & relaxations. Tending the Self is a major theme in Liz ’s practice, inspired by Pema Chodrun’s quote: “the root of compassion is compassion for oneself’.

Great inspiration and drive carried Liz through the Astanga Vinyasa system (1990’s), training in Astanga vinyasa under Derek Ireland. She then diversified into other Hatha Yoga practices to broaden her learning through the British Wheel of Yoga.

Liz and Gingi met 30 years ago in Crete when they were both practicing and studying ashtanga with Derek Ireland and they have had a long history of collaborating together since those early days.
