Lizzie Aguirre

CEO & Yogi Entrepreneur

Bio

Lizzie is grateful to have been inspired by yoga since her teen years. Before finding her practice she was moving through a difficult transition around body image, anxiety and depression. As a former ballerina, pianist and vocalist, Lizzie found that yoga was an empowering and unique embodiment of the music and arts therapy she was searching for post-adolescence. At the young age of 17, she embarked on her journey to becoming a yoga teacher. She is now an international E-RYT 200HR and 500HR teacher, yoga festival director, retreat coordinator and yogi entrepreneur. As Austin Woman Magazine’s January 2019 cover woman, AWM   writes “At her festivals and retreats, community-building yoga instructor Lizzie Aguirre breaks down barriers through music, movement and manifestation.” Lizzie encourages students to journey through and out of personal barriers and blockages with connective breath, guided meditations, mindful movement and powerful intention. Lizzie creates an all-welcoming yet challenging, playful and purposeful practice while her carefully curated music and contagious soul guides you.

Andrea Taylor

Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist and Intuitive Healer

Bio

“Born and raised in Austin, TX, I found yoga early in high school, and it has been with me off and on for the last 12 years, as a practice I knew I could come to that would not only strengthen my physical body, but that also brought balance to my mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. That has always been the part of the practice that has brought me back to my mat year after year; that I not only noticed my body growing stronger, but that I also felt calm, relaxed, refreshed and renewed after practicing! I have practiced deep tissue massage for 6+ years and have a great passion for learning about the body. I believe that the breath, the body and the mind are all connected, and through our practice we gain a greater awareness of this rhythm within. I believe that this awareness and mindfulness cultivated during our practice not only connects us to these forces within us, but also to the world around us! I love playing with handstands and fun arm balances, twisting and hip opening!”
