French from Italian descent, Elisabeth Holmes, discovered yoga in 2004, in France with her teacher, Aline Frati, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time. Yoga helped her to connect with her body in an unexplored way, and start the journey towards working out physical tensions and experiencing an expanded state of being.
In 2006, Elisabeth made the big move from Paris to the U.S. and settled into a new life in Atlanta, Georgia, where she still lives now.
In 2014-2015, a series of traumatic events rocked Elisabeth's world. She was diagnosed with a second breast cancer, before losing her dad a year later and divorcing. With these experiences, Elisabeth delved even deeper into learning about the body, heart and mind connection, with the help of her healers in France.
IAYT-certified yoga therapist, Elisabeth is the founder of Yoga for Renewal, a unique style of therapeutic yoga. She designs and teaches classes, workshops and retreats with input from a licensed psychologist.
Yoga for Renewal works on three different levels: the physical level with the practice of the unique style of yoga Elisabeth learned from her teacher, Aline Frati, the social level with the experience of being part of a group, and the emotional level with the expression of your own soul and humanness through language.
