Yoga with Elizabeth Barnet

Elizabeth has been teaching yoga in Marin County and beyond since 1992. She apprenticed with Judith Lasater at the Iyengar Yoga Institute, studied with Donald Moyer and others at the Yoga Room in Berkeley, and continues her studies with Ramanand Patel and others. Her yoga background is rooted in the Iyengar tradition but also influenced by Desikachar, flow yoga, and her dance background. Her gentle, thorough, and attentive observations and articulations support each student's individual needs and differences.

Elizabeth is a graduate of St. John's College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a great books program. This classical education supports her life and thinking.

Elizabeth was born in Zambia and grew up in many parts of the US including Boulder, Chicago, and Boston. Elizabeth is the mother of three. (She taught through all of her pregnancies.)

She is a home school teacher. She and her husband, artist Rufus Blunk (, met in the Nicaraguan countryside in 1986 while volunteering on a housebuilding and water system project.

Elizabeth is also the co-director of West Marin Commons,, a community organization.

Fundamental Positions

When I teach yoga, I often move outward from the basics through a series of fundamental positions.

Fundamental positions can include:

*On your back (bend your knees if your back is uncomfortable)
*On your hands and knees (if you can be on your knees)
*Standing on two feet (Tadasana or Mountain Pose)
*Seated (either on a chair or on a folded blanket)

Depending on your abilities, you can work from just one of those positions for a whole practice session.

To be continued.
