Welcome to The
MEET THE OWNERS
Liz and Roland travel worldwide leading workshops and retreats, and guest teaching at festivals, conferences and in teacher trainings. They write for various yoga magazines such as the German Yoga Journal and Yoga Aktuell, and offer online content in English and German through udaya.com and doyouyoga.com. Rooted in their own intense practice, their teaching offers a unique blend of detailed anatomy and alignment instruction with storytelling, philosophy, meditation and mindfulness, marrying modern and traditional approaches to yoga.
They have traveled widely, visiting many holy sites in India and Nepal in order to understand the roots of yoga. They have practiced with diverse teachers from the west and the east, and have been strongly influenced by multiple visits to Plum Village (Thich Nhat Hanh) and years of intensive study with Tsakpo Rinpoche.
In 2014, they founded The Groove Gathering, offering intimate yoga events in diverse locations, focused on exploring movement, sound, and creative play, rooted in the local community, emphasizing inclusivity and learning together, and featuring some of the best local and international yoga teachers and musicians.
After eight years based in Cologne, Germany, they moved to a small farm in the Kingston area and took ownership of studio330 in 2017. While still travelling, they are enjoying putting down roots and becoming immersed in the Kingston yoga community. When they’re at home, you’ll find them getting muddy in the vegetable garden with their baby boy, tending to a small crew of chickens and goats, and exploring their connection to the land.
