Liz Rupp

Liz Rupp took her first yoga class in 2006 and hated it. Five years later, her friends dragged her kicking and screaming into her first Baptiste Yoga class. She began to attend classes on a regular basis to recover from marathon training. In 2011, she completed her 200 hour training with Sid McNairy in Baltimore, Maryland before becoming an active duty Army officer.  Liz is also a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, and loves teaching yoga for athletes. Her goals include teaching to professional athletes, becoming a Baptiste Certified Teacher, and adopting an English Bulldog.

Her favorite thing about teaching yoga is witnessing people feel better - whether it’s their 5 minutes of savasana during a stressful day, or making big strides off their mat and in their life. Liz’s favorite pose is adho mukha svanasana. Yup – good old downward facing dog! A huge transformation happens between your first downdog and the last one in the practice. It’s the starting point for all things cool and scary (jump into crow or handstand), but feels like home all at the same time. For athletes, it’s the most “bang for your buck” in one simple stretch (huge shoulder, calf, and hamstring opener). Liz’s guilty pleasures are nachos and a beer after a summer day. Her secret super power is balancing her diet of kale chips with queso, and making Ina Garten’s Icebox cake better than Ina Garten.

Yinpowerment™ is the new Dancing Dogs Yoga sequence designed to bring more sukha (ease) to your power yoga practice. Combining the elements of Yin yoga with the principles, methodology and language of power yoga, this deeply restorative practice will melt your muscles, nourish your practice and speak to your heart. Developed by Shelley Loather, Kendall Beene and Melissa DeLynn of Dancing Dogs Yoga.   All teachers are trained in this methodology.
