Studio Founder and Admin


Hi, my name is Liat and I am the founder of Yoga Mind Li. I am an educator with more than 20 years of experience. I love teaching. My love and passion for yoga started when I was five months pregnant with my first child, that was when I attended my ever first yoga class.

I fell in love with yoga immediately. A whole new world has opened up to me and everything started to change for and to clear up. It took me a little time to understand that yoga is my passion and I want to embrace as my lifestyle and that didn’t take long. The body-mind connection holds information that many times can be only accessed through yoga and movement. Yoga is a powerful tool to learn about yourself, opening the mind and relaxing the body from our everyday stressors.

Ever since that first class, I never stopped practicing yoga, which has definitely added to my quality of life. The grounding and centering feelings I experience when practicing yoga is profound. We all want to have some peace of mind and a deeper understanding of ourselves and our experiences.

In my work, I put the emphasis on alignment and breathing. We will be practicing mindfulness and exercise relaxation and meditation. While my training is in Vinyasa Yoga and in HataYoga, I gear my class to the needs of the participants integrating different styles of yoga.

In my formal training, I am an educator with over 20 years of experience and have a bachelor’s degree in education (B.Ed), as well as a special education teacher and an art therapy professional.

Before I began teaching yoga I was an educator and a teacher in schools both abroad and in New York for more than 20 years. I have solid experience working with teens, kids preschools. I have developed many educational programs during the years and I offer my services to schools and organizations in Long Island, New York City, and all over the world.

As a part of my practice I also offer:

  • Private and Group Classes
  •  Customized Workshops
  • Teens and Kids Yoga
  • Mommy and Me Yoga
  • After-School Programs
  • Pre/postnatal Yoga
  • Restorative Yoga

I offer my work to anyone who seeks to learn and explore the benefits of yoga and mindfulness. It doesn’t matter where you are in your life or what are your physical abilities. Yoga is for everyone. and it’s a gift you give yourself that will stay with you forever.  I am looking foreword to see you soon in my Yoga classes, I can assure you it will be a pleasurable experience for you. I hope to guide you and inspire you to a healthy grounding life.

Love, Peace, Health, and gratitude.
