Liz Ortiz, M.A., ERYT-500, YACEP, MBG-HWC has a Masters Degree in both Health Education and Stress Management.  She began teaching vinyasa yoga in 1999 and trained under the ISHTA lineage with Alan Finger.  She holds multiple yoga teaching certifications totaling more than 1000 hours of training, including most recently 200 hours with Yoga Works in 2019 and a YIN certification with Josh Summers in 2020.  When Liz teaches, she balances the power and challenge of yoga asana with a strong connection to yoga philosophy and inspiration.   When synchronized with breath, the postures help one find a home for both body and mind, and the practice opens the door to a deeper knowledge of oneself.  This is the true intention of yoga and the way in which Liz likes to teach.


 In addition to teaching, Liz has been a yoga teacher trainer since 2002 and is a continuing education provider with Yoga Alliance.  Liz was the co-owner of Living Yoga in Cold Spring, NY from 2012-2017, which was voted the Best Yoga Studio in the Hudson Valley 5 years in a row.   


Liz is a certified Health and Wellness Coach which allows her to enhance the work she is already doing with her students and support others on the path to wellness and wholeness.  She is a very  happy resident of the Hudson Valley in New York.

Yoga Classes

Practice Makes Progress

I teach both a strong vinyasa practice that safely creates strength, flexibility and cardiovascular benefits, as well as the quiet and still practice of Yin. Classes also regularly include traditional yoga philosophy and discussions on the application of this philosophy to our lives. Join me live and virtually  by clicking on "Group Classes" at the top of my Home page.

Yoga Private Instruction

The Power to Personalize

Private instruction allows for the practice to be tailored to the individual, whether due to injury, physical limitations, beginning yoga for the first time or simply the joy of having a teacher there just for your needs, privates are a great way to propel you deeper down the path of yoga.  Schedule a session with me through the Booking page.
