Yoga Teacher & Annandale Licensee
In May 2017, Elizabeth will open the doors to her Green Lotus Yoga & Healing Center in Annandale, Minnesota. An exurban community of the Twin Cities and a popular vacation destination, Annandale sits amid beautiful lakes and rolling prairies of verdant farmland. Its population swells (like the waves of the lakes) to more than 20,000 spring through late fall.
Green Lotus Yoga & Healing Center - Annandale will deliver a wide range of integrative healing techniques to its community, including reiki and other energy work; therapeutic massage and Thai yoga massage; mental-health counseling; life counseling; workshops about wellness, and classes in yoga and meditation.
Elizabeth's decision to become a Green Lotus licensee follows a vibrant career in high tech. Her lifelong interest in integrative healing and yoga led her to complete Green Lotus's certified 200-hour teacher training in 2015, after teaching for eight years. She also is a noted lecturer, workshop leader, and author of two non-fiction books dealing with self-discovery: her 2003 memoir Wednesdays at the Fluff 'n' Fold and 2016's Yoga Expression Spirit in which she chronicles the three pillars of her life. In 2004, Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network hired Elizabeth to author a collection of interviews with family members and friends of prostate cancer patients. The Circles of Love Collection still is available from the organization.
Elizabeth lives in Annandale with her husband. An avid bicyclist, she often can be found pedaling throughout the Annandale area and around the country.
Annandale brings the number of Green Lotus facilities in Minnesota to four: two which are corporately owned (one each in Mendota Heights and Lakeville) and two licensees (Eden Prairie and Annandale).
