Eliza Ioannou - Sadhana Wellbeing Yoga Teacher

Training lead: Eliza Ioannou

Eliza discovered yoga at a young age growing up in South Africa, and has explored elements of this ancient tradition ever since.  As a young adolescent, struggling with bullying and lack of self-esteem, yoga made her feel confidant and connected to herself.

As time passed yoga was a consistent part of her life, even in times when the physical practice (Asana) wasn’t present, the tools she had learned helped her to navigate through life.

After years in the fast-paced fashion industry, Eliza made the decision to do a Vinyasa yoga teacher training in 2017 and has not looked back since.  She has a unique approach to deep relaxation techniques that has created a following of students who seek out reprieve from their modern, stressful lives.

She teaches Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Vinyasa Yoga, Restorative Yoga and sound healing, and is also a Reiki healer.  She is known for her nurturing approach that allows you to discover the practice and grow at your own pace.  She is passionate about making yoga accessible to everyone and is also Accessible Yoga trained.

She believes in allowing students to be guided by their inner knowing and approaches every opportunity to teach as an opportunity to hold space for this discovery.

Eliza has been delivering teacher trainings since 2020 alongside her mentor Beth Crivelli and has had some excellent feedback through the years both from teachers and students.  She approaches teaching from many angles, as she understands that we all learn in different ways.  You can expect to learn through many mediums such as experiential, visual, practical, and theoretical.

Eliza also has a vast experience in teaching private restorative classes to people with specific issues, injuries, conditions and therefore has a deeper understanding of how to adapt practices as needed.
