Welcome to Atlanta Yoga!
Ashtanga Yoga and Yoga Therapy in West Midtown Atlanta We have been practicing Ashtanga Yoga and mindful movement in Atlanta since 1988. Our approach to yoga is first and foremost that of a practice of mindful movement capable of creating spaces in mind and body that allow for increased focus, refined awareness, and an increased capacity for movement.
We feel strongly that yoga is best approached through an individual relationship between teacher and student. We take the time to get to know each student and through small group and individual work assist each student in developing a practice of mindful movement that can grow and change with them across a lifetime.
Elizabeth Rogers has been the director of Atlanta Yoga since 2007. Elizabeth is a Licensed Professional Counselor and yoga therapist certified with the International Association of Yoga Therapy. In addition to Atlanta Yoga she maintains a private practice in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. At Atlanta Yoga she facilitates small group classes and Trauma Sensitive Yoga groups. At the cross sections of private practice and her work at Atlanta Yoga, Elizabeth specializes in one-on-one work with individuals which can range from one-on-one yoga training and yoga therapy sessions to movement-based psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. Elizabeth teaches from a foundation grounded in the Ashtanga Vinyasa Tradition as passed down by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and informed by her practices in art-making and psychoanalysis.
We are a different sort of studio! Because we operate very differently from most yoga studios please kindly note that we do not allow “drop-ins”. If you are interested in joining us (and we hope you are!) please contact Elizabeth at least 24 hours prior to the class you would like to attend. Elizabeth can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404.273.4388.
