Liz Miller.jpeg

Liz Miller

Liz is excited about all things pertaining to integration of the Self. She believes that every one of us has a deep desire to turn inward, find our light and return to wholeness. As a yogi, psychoanalyst and doula, she brings aspects of these philosophies into her classes.

Liz’s experience with trauma from childhood cancer has led her to see that we all hold some flavor of trauma and dysfunction in our mind, heart and nervous system. She has found that through yoga, breathwork and self-inquiry, we can integrate the parts of Self that got “stuck”, thus doing our soul’s work and revealing our true nature. We do this alongside one another, coming to fertile space on our mats and opening ourselves to making new patterns.

She is passionate about supporting mothers and partners through pregnancy and birth, believing that this helps to heal the mother wound of our world and ensure the wellness of future humans. Liz’s classes offer a little bit of something for everyone - the philosophy junkie, the alignment enthusiast and the athlete alike. There will be music, ideas to reflect upon and a whole lot of love. She completed 200hr and 300hr yoga teacher training at Yoga Love Project, restorative YTT at Yoga Works, and 85hr YTT at the Prenatal Yoga Center. She is a certified birth doula through Carriage House Birth.
