Lizel Cameron.

Yoga Teacher

Lizel is our In-House Yoga & Meditation Teacher and the Head of Teaching Staff of Inspire Yoga Pilates and Fitness.

She believes that true yoga practice doesn’t end at a studio but extends beyond into all spheres of your world. She considers herself to forever be humbled as a student of yoga and continues to study extensively, take courses and trainings to gain more knowledge to make her classes safe, professional, effective and healing. The focus of her studies, practice and teachings has shifted from the physical body into the subtle energetic body. She continuously studies and takes courses on aromatherapy, subtle energy techniques, and vibrational sound therapy. She embarks on a healer’s journey of reiki, sound & vibrational healing and sanskrit mantra & vedic chanting.

Lizel has been practicing yoga for 14 years. Her favorite style of yoga: Ashtanga as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. It is structured and does not depend on the mood of the teacher, it is very humbling, and it trains your nervous system.

– Favorite yoga asana: Lotus pose, or padmasana
– Most challenging asana: anything that brings her upside down
– Favorite backbend: drop backs to wheel pose
– Favorite forward bend: supta kurmasana
– Favorite spinal twist: cat tail pose
– Favorite balancing pose: natarajasana
– Favorite strength-building pose: utplutih
– Most practiced breathing exercise: ujjayi
– Most cherished yoga memory/moment: her first Sanskrit chanting class in the Himalayas 8 years ago.
