Liza Toft

Liza has been teaching yoga in NYC since 1998. She has studied various forms of yoga but kept getting drawn back to the art, science, and philosophy of Iyengar Yoga. She committed to getting certified in the method by enrolling in the teacher training program at the New York Iyengar Yoga Institute in 2015 and becoming certified in 2018. Having a background in fine art as well as having a masters degree in creative arts therapy from Pratt Institute, she sees Iyengar Yoga as a creative art form. There is a focus on precision and alignment in the method, but her teaching encourages students to use the technique to go deeper to find the transformational power of yoga.
