Yvette is a British/American who’s made Sweetwater her home since 2014 with her husband and two lovely children. She’s lived in several parts of England, including London, where she completed her English Literature Degree at the University of Roehampton. Formerly a Flight Attendant, Yvette met her husband (now a retired US Army soldier) in Sierra Leone, Africa. She’s been a proud military wife, stationed in Germany twice, Kansas and Colorado. Yvette knew she’d stumbled across something very special in 2008, lying in savasana during her first yoga class. Since then she’s had a dedicated yoga practice, delving into varying braches including Ashtanga, Kundalini and Hatha. Her passion for spirituality and physical wellness inspired her to create a blog, leading to several published articles. Yvette recently became a yoga teacher, completing 200 hours of Core Integrated Alignment Yoga, at Sweetwater Yoga & Fitness. Facilitating yoga enables Yvette to celebrate her love of writing, travel, angel therapy, aromatherapy and meditation to create a sacred and nurturing ambience for students.

I had been practicing yoga for about 3 years when I walked into Sweetwater Yoga & Fitness and instantly fell in love! The community was so warm and inviting and the yoga felt good on my achy body. I love it so much and am excited to share this brand of yoga with the Sweetwater and Parkside communities. Im not sure where this path is leading me, but the life changing experiences and devoted and uplifting friendships I've found here have encouraged me in ways that are unexplainable. I can't wait to share space with you! See you in class!
Throughout her life, Liz has consistently pursued physical activities. As a former high school athlete competing in multiple sports, physical activity has always been a primary part of her daily routine. Liz has always thrived on pushing herself beyond self-imposed limits. Having raised three beautiful children into adults while taking on the challenges of life, Liz was naturally attracted to the peace and solitude of yoga. Once she began practicing and experiencing the physical and mental benefits of yoga, Liz became desirous to share with others. As a registered nurse of twenty five plus years, compassion and caring have always been at the core of Liz’s well-being. As a result, she became passionate to extend her care for others through yoga. Liz enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, hiking, biking, and painting.
