Elizabeth Brewer is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School (RYS).
One of my dear friends in the College of Public Health was a wheelchair user paralyzed from the chest down who knew I was a yoga teacher and fitness instructor. She shared with me her dream of practicing yoga. A few months later, she passed away and in her honor I made it my mission in life to redefine disability with ability through movement. I started the first yoga for disabilities program at the University of Arizona. Through this experience, I found that teaching was my dream job, and here I am. I came into this field discovering the importance of self-love and with my job I get to share just that. Movement inspires me day in and day out. Spreading the joy of movement is one of the sweetest gifts of my life.
