MEET THE TEACHER

Enrolling in OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training remains the second best decision of Liz’s life... the first of course, was to run away and join the circus.

 

Working with Cirque du Soleil and their outreach program Cirque du Monde brought Liz all over the world and eventually landed her at Om Factory in New York where Liz teaches aerial yoga, dance, fitness, and Lyra to both children and adults. Teaching aerial acrobatics to children inspired her to participate in the

development of Om Factory’s Kids' Aerial Yoga Program.
