Yoga Instructor

Like a lot of people, Lizz first came to yoga through the postural practice. After a couple years of attending drop-in classes, they began to look for ways to deepen their practice. That’s when Lizz found the Samarya Center – a yoga school and the home of Integrated Movement Therapy (IMT).  

During this time of study, yoga as a philosophy - as a daily practice, as a way of being a human in the world - opened up, and deepened Lizz’s understanding and connection to a practice they already loved. Lizz has studied yoga and IMT with the Samarya Center since 2016 and has earned their 200HR and 500HR yoga teacher certifications (RYT) and Integrated Movement Therapy certification (C-IMT).

Lizz is deeply invested in offering safe, accessible, and connecting community yoga. They make it a priority to offer their services to queer, trans, and gender-non-conforming people. Yoga is for every body! You can find more information at

In their free time, Lizz likes to talk astrology and tarot, go thrifting with their partner, cuddle with their dog, Mack, and drink coffee with cream.
