About Liz Vitell
I began my yoga journey several decades ago when I lived in South America. While in Chile, I had the amazing opportunity to take private hatha yoga classes taught in the middle of a fragrant eucalyptus grove. After practicing different styles of yoga over the years, I discovered Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga and experienced an immediate connection. I completed my Baptiste Level One training in 2012 and Level Two in 2013, which, along with Art of Assisting, comprise my RYT-200 status with Yoga Alliance. In 2016, my teaching hours qualified me for the E-RYT designation as an experienced yoga instructor.
In addition to the Baptiste training, I received a 95-hour RCYT certification in children’s yoga from Global Family Yoga ® in 2014 and enjoy teaching family yoga workshops open to kids from five to 105. I also hold a certificate in Therapeutic Yoga for Children and completed Yin Yoga teacher training in the spring of 2014 and Meditation teaching training in the fall of the same year. I became certified in prenatal and postnatal yoga in June 2016 and in the following years, acquired my Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra certificate and Restorative Yoga training.
In recent years, I became involved with Alas/Wings, a grass-roots non-profit that serves the Spanish language community of breast cancer survivors, where I proudly serve as a board member. Through the Alas connection, I joined the teaching staff of Wellness House, an organization dedicated to proving support and resources to cancer patients and survivors. As a survivor myself, I know how crucial these services can be.

I'm a licensed attorney, the mother of two grown children and the grandmother of six budding yogis and I love to share yoga with everyone of all ages. I believe most importantly in meeting students where they are with love and acceptance, so that they may be encouraged to do the same for themselves and others.
