Studio Founder

 

Hi, my name is Liat Chanoch and I am Yoga Mind Li founder and studio owner.

 

My love and passion for yoga started 30 years ago. I was taking a walk with my dog in my grandparent’s village. On that walk I decided to take a moment, to sit on the ground, close my eyes, and listen to mother nature. That was the moment when I found mindfulness for the first time.

As a teen, I didn’t know back then that I am meditating, years later I came to the realization that I was meditating. I felt wonderful and very relaxed afterward.

Later on, when I was already married and expecting my first child, I was attending my first Prenatal yoga class. It was an incredibly empowering experience that I’ll never forget. I immediately fell in love with the practice. From that moment on my whole life began to change and transform.

Around the same time, I made a commitment to myself to follow and explore the yoga practice and to enjoy this amazing journey of Yoga, mindfulness, and breath work. I learned and embraced a new lifestyle that I knew back then that I would follow for a lifetime.

Before I began my yoga journey, I was an educator in schools in different places around the globe such as; Israel, Canada, and New York.  I taught children from preschool age through high school and also taught adult education.

I have various qualifications, including:

  • Yoga vinyasa flow
  • Restorative Yoga
  • Kids and teens
  • Family Yoga
  • Baby and me Yoga
  • Pre/ Postnatal Yoga
  • breathwork and meditation
  • Mindfulness
  • Oils therapy

 

I have a bachelor’s degree in education (B.Ed and S.Ed) and I am experienced as a special education teacher and an art therapy professional.  My formal teacher’s training has helped me to understand my student’s needs and adapt my yoga classes to meet my students’ various needs and interests. I am a certified yoga instructor for adults, kids, and teens. Breathwork and meditation coach.

The grounding and centering feelings you will feel during your yoga practice with me are profound. We can all benefit from achieving peace of mind and a deeper understanding of ourselves and our experiences. This journey has changed my life and I am inviting you to join me on this journey.

I can assure you that you won’t be able to compare this practice of yours at my studio to anywhere else. What can you expect from your yoga journey? Yoga is the union of the body and the mind, and you cannot nurture one without the other. The body-mind connection holds information that can be accessed only through consistent yoga and mindfulness practice.

Practicing yoga is a powerful tool that enables its followers to learn about themselves, open their minds to new experiences, and change their perspective on life. On a physical level, yoga will help you to build stamina, become stronger and more flexible, and will teach you to let go of the stress of everyday life.  In my work with my clients, I introduce classic vinyasa yoga, yoga therapy, breathing techniques, mindfulness, meditation, and breath work. I specialize in teaching various types of yoga and my experience affords me the flexibility to tailor classes to my client’s needs and expectations.

When you begin this journey, you will learn about and experience the benefits of yoga including breathing techniques and mindfulness.  No matter what your stage in life is and what your physical abilities are, there is a yoga practice to suit you. In my classes, you will learn to challenge and accept yourself and you will gain insight that will last a lifetime.

Here is a list of instructors who guided and inspired me throughout the years:

  • Gail Boorstein Grossman-
  • Deborah Forman
  • Collen Saidman
  • Rodney Yee
  • Shari Vilchez – Blatt
  • Lucas Rockwood

Love and blessing
