Meet Elizabeth Rovens of Beverly Hills Yoga Center in West Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elizabeth Rovens.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started practicing yoga 16 years ago. At first, yoga was very intimidating for me because I did not have a background in gymnastics or acrobatics skills.

Eventually, I overcame my fear and started practicing more and more. Years later I started to realize that Yoga is so much more than just about being flexible. Yoga is about mental and spiritual training too!

After 10 years, I completed my teacher training with Steve Ross at Maha yoga. I did this not because I wanted to teach, but because I fell in love with what yoga stands for and represents.

Right after I finished the training, I got an opportunity to teach group classes at Crunch Fitness Sunset. When I began at Crunch, they gave me the Sunday early morning class, the worst time of the week. At first they were only 1 or 2 students, but now it is one of the busiest classes on the schedule. This makes me proud that people are getting value from my yoga instruction.

I really enjoy sharing all my knowledge and experience with people so that’s why I decided to expand and integrate yoga at a martial arts studio. I teach classes during the week at Beverly Hills Karate Academy.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Like everything else in life, this journey has its challenges too. Everyone deals with injuries and physical pain, especially when they get older. Developing a training regimen which satisfies everyone is an evolutionary process. I continue to refine and learn new ways every day.

Beverly Hills Yoga Center – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am a certified yoga instructor. I try my best to structure my classes so that everyone gets the most out of it, no matter beginner or advanced. I try to provide personal attention, particularly to beginners, in all of my group classes. I want my students to progress at their own individual pace, but most importantly, I want them to have fun and feel stress free by the end of class.

I want them to feel energized for their daily lives after yoga practice.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I hope everyone feels success is about personal goals. In yoga, I am personally trying to improve my skills daily. I want my students to feel the same and enjoy their journey in the art of yoga!
