Liv began her yoga practice in 2001 in Los Angeles initially as a means of finding balance in her high stress event planning career. She developed a more regular practice in 2008 while pregnant with her first child as she truly began to notice the connectivity of the mind, body and spirit. Since then she has kept a steady practice of her own as well as a way to bond with her two children.
Liv decided to further explore her love for yoga and did her teacher training through Del Sol YTT, under the guidance of Claudia Castro-Leverett, Thomas Leverett and Erica Holzman. This experience transformed her practice into a passion. She earned her certification thru Yoga Alliance as a RYT-200 in 2015 and now teaches Hot Vinyasa, Slow Burn (a blind folded, slow and low practice), Ashtanga, Yin and Yin-Yasa at several studios around Austin as well as for events and/or private sessions.
As a mother of two that has personally experienced Yoga as a benefit in her life as well as in her children's lives, Liv decided to further her training in Kids Yoga. She received her certification as a Kids Yoga Teacher at The Little Yoga House, under the guidance of Abby Nagler and An Dang. Liv is passionate about teaching yoga to kids of all ages from birth thru Tweens and Teens. She believes that yoga is a strong foundation that offers children the proper tools to cope with the natural ups and downs of life as they grow - breathing techniques, body and emotional awareness, meditation and a strong, healthy body of their own to be proud of.
Off the mat, Liv enjoys cooking, traveling and outdoor adventures with her husband, Reynold and their children Jacob, Lochlynn and their two dogs. Liv is also the Owner of Liv by Design, an event design firm and The Good Life Furniture Collection, an event furniture rental company.
She believes that with a regular yoga & meditation practice, anything is possible...and sharing that with children, not only ignites your own inner child, but leads you and the children to greater happiness!
