Yoga was a natural next step for her personal development given her work on conflict resolution and as someone who is interested in the secular ethics where inner transformation naturally extends to positive community effects. Elizabeth was introduced to Yoga Academy and the Original Yoga System through instructors Haruna and James Uriu and had found this practice to be exactly what it claims: original. The system gives the tools so individuals can heal the body and mind from within, and it encourages a simple understanding that it is within our power to achieve our goals. It is devoid of any religious influences and rather has a more scientific approach to its practice.
