About Olive Yoga

Elizabeth started her journey with yoga in 1996 when she learned how to meditate.  Her physical practice began in 1998 in the Kundalini lineage of yoga. After a serious back injury she tried Bikram yoga and Hatha. However, over the past 20 years she has explored and practiced a wide variety of styles. Based on her intensive teacher training she now enjoys a blend of Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga based on alignment and breath. She received her teaching certification from the Yoga Alliance Approved 200-hour certification at YogaWorks Studios in Los Angeles, California.  She has continued her trainings around the world at various retreats, workshops and festivals.

 

Her unique teachings are based on an intuitive feeling of the energy of the group or individual.  She starts with pranayama (breath) and an intention to connect awareness to our bodies.  She weaves philosophy delicately throughout the session to integrate elements of the eight limb path. She gives verbal and physical adjustments when needed and demonstrate poses for clarity but does not stay on her mat.  She specializes in being a true teacher by modifying a persons practice if necessary and offers challenges.  The sequencing of the asanas contributes to a moving meditation to help create stillness of the mind, while building strength and stretching the limits of your body in a harmonious approach. A closing meditation may include flute or some of the philosophy of the “Eight Limb Path” to connect to the light within.

 

Olive-Yoga-Long Beach YogaElizabeth has enjoyed attending Bhakti, Shakti and Sat Nam festivals in Joshua Tree as well as hosting, teaching and taking various workshops and retreats around the world.  Her love for yoga runs deep!  Her teachings are guided by the Divine and the energy and experience of the class.  Her goal is to teach to the level of the student, modify when necessary and help to guide the student to the next level.  She has also attended the first Yoga Alliance “The Business of Yoga” conference in Washington, DC in August of 2013 where she connected with yogis from all over the country!  Truly inspiring.  She has traveled to Colombia to practice and teach yoga to a group of travelers who stayed at the Eco Gambia Village.  Her latest journey brought her to Tarapoto, Peru where she practiced and taught a yoga retreat in the Amazonian jungle!

We rented the beautiful space at Olive Yoga to hold a Femme! class with live drumming. The class was filmed for a demo reel and we couldn't have asked for a more photogenic space with lots of natural light. The staff was gracious, accommodating and professional. Very grateful we found this clean, vibrant, beautiful space for the sacred movement we were doing. I highly recommend it!

I've been practicing at Olive Yoga for the past few months and have really grown to love the new studio.  It's is night and day from the previous business at the same location.  The studio has amazing energy and is equipped with blocks, blankets, straps and even eye pillows!  You will find everything you need here to grow your practice safely.  James, Elizabeth, Jasmine, Tami and Drew are all great teachers!  The classes are diverse and incorporate many different styles of yoga.  Olive Yoga is welcoming to all levels of experience.

Park in the garage between 3rd and 4th behind Hamburger Mary's for 2 hours free parking no validation required.

I LOVE this yoga studio in downtown LB. I really like the vibe of the place and the instructors.... no judgement, I'm very comfortable there 🙂
If you haven't had a class with Elizabeth, you are misssing out, she's fantastic! She gives "modified" poses so all levels are welcome and encouraged.
I'm feeling much stronger since starting my yoga path! Oh, and Restorative yoga is so nice and should not be overlooked.... I call it "sleepy yoga" and it helps me to relax and stretch.... I always have the best night sleep after!

Awesome new yoga studio in dtlb.  I started out with a groupon during the soft opening and have now moved on to a monthly membership.  Great vibe and the classes are challenging. Elizabeth is very welcoming and I really like her classes.  The other instructors are also good.  Definitely worth checking out.
Parking- there is a lot nearby with 2 hours free.
Noise- it's in downtown so be ready for sirens and the usual noise.  It honestly does not bother me.  Usually there is music playing so drowns it out.
Location- on top of Starbucks on pine

I was in Long Beach for the weekend for work and I was lucky enough to have some time to go to a yoga class at Olive Yoga. The studio has a very homey and cozy vibe. The practice space is beautiful; there are showers, mats and towels. My instructor was Elizabeth and she was fantastic. She was personable and funny and I really enjoyed her class. It was Vinyasa style and definitely a work out, but she was excellent about offering modifications as well. If I lived in Long Beach I'd go all the time!

Olive Yoga is best yoga studio I have found since moving to Southern California. The instructors, space, and other students are very welcoming. The instructors have the perfect mix of the physical & spiritual components of yoga. You'll sweat, but also get your meditation/ spiritual time. This is not the kind of studio where you walk in and people are doing handstands before the class even starts.  Elizabeth (owner) is fantastic! She is encouraging, challenging, and funny. She provides precise instructions and offers different options for every level of student in the class. You will not only be told how to get into the pose, but what it called in English and Sanskrit. (That has not been my experience at other studios.)You will also receive physical adjustments and tips on how to get the most out of the pose once you are in it. All the instructors are terrific, but Elizabeth, Eve, Johnathan, and James deserve special acknowledgement.  They also offer a number of fantastic workshops to get deeper instruction & understanding, e.g. Heathy Back, kundalini, sound bath, and yoga for runners, are just a few. Also, there is free parking in the garage on 3rd. No need to drive around looking for a meter. I would give Elizabeth & Olive Yoga more stars if possible, it's that good. Try it! Your mind and body will thank you & serve you better!

I have been here a few times after buying the Groupon deal.  The location and setup is wonderful, and the teachers are terrific. Elizabeth has a great demeanor and makes me feel comfortable from the moment I walk in. The classes are tough, with a good bit of inspiration.
This is a good place and I think my new favorite in the LBC.

An amazing environment with classes that will challenge the individual and allow you to grow during each and every practice. I felt like I was at home every time I walked up those beautifully painted stairs! Elizabeth puts her whole heart into everything she does and is an inspiring passionate teacher. James on Sunday mornings is fantastic, caters to your body and your strengths and leads a stellar Prana Flow. Olive Yoga is one of my favorite things about Long Beach!
