"Love is the bridge between you and everything." - Rumi
Liz Getman is a registered yoga teacher (E-RYT 200, YACEP) and retreat guide who resides in Gainesville, FL. Through yoga, meditation, and mindful movement, Liz supports others in cultivating love and compassion for themselves and the world around them.
Liz studied Hatha and Hridaya (spiritual heart) yoga with Arjuna Dharma Das and Arpita Kshama Devi at Mahadevi Ashram & Kaivalya Yoga School in Tzununá, Guatemala. While there, she developed Cacaoga®, a practice that unifies sacred cacao with heart-centered asana and meditation.
Liz first began offering yoga and wellness retreats domestically and abroad in 2016 after recognizing the power of travel in her own life and from fellow yoga teachers, such as her dear friend and collaborator Cristiane Machado. Outside of traveling, Liz teaches yoga and Zumba® regularly in Gainesville and serves as program director of YogaLoka, a nonprofit organization that provides yoga and meditation to traditionally underserved and marginalized populations.
Liz has a bachelor's degree in Spanish from Ithaca College and a master's degree in Latin American Studies from the University of Florida. She is the co-host of Beyond Asana, a podcast that features yoga teachers and spiritual leaders living yoga off the mat.
