Who We Are
Lakshmi Rising Yoga & Wellness is a lifestyle school that offers professional training and personal development programs rooted in loving awareness. We offer both 200-hour foundational (RYT200) and 300-hour next-level (RYT500) vinyasa yoga teacher training immersions in Costa Rica and Europe. Our mission is to educate and empower our students while building a global community of change makers.
The Lakshmi Rising community is a circle of seekers, educators, healers, wellness warriors, spiritual geeks, artists, scientists, and fellow humans who have accepted the challenge of making the earth a healthier, happier, and more peaceful place through the science of yoga.
We are the change that the world is finally ready for. We are the future. We invite you to join us.
What We Do
We are here to empower you. We offer experiential education, unique inspiration, and authentic support for your evolution. We hold the space for deep connection. We provide the knowledge and tools to complement your will and desire for growth and healing. We curate transformational events, yoga immersions, training certification programs and retreats which offer the opportunity for you to learn and thrive.
How We Do It
We teach you how to participate in your own process. You will learn by doing. Our experiences are consciously designed and guided for you to cultivate balance, ease and strength on all levels; both on and off the mat. This full-spectrum, non-compartmentalized deep dive into living yoga will enliven you as you move your body, free your mind, open your heart and awaken your Spirit.
We practice and teach yoga as an internal, healing and personal practice. We go beyond the physical aspect of yoga. We view yoga neither as a performance art nor a competitive sport. This experiential practice is accessible to all.
Lakshmi Rising Hatha Vinyasa Yoga is an awareness-based method that includes both dynamic & restorative asana, creative & intelligent sequencing for injury prevention, pranayama, mantra, different styles of meditation, ecstatic dance, self-study, and wellbeing rituals for vibrant health and personal development.
Vinyasa is the fluid and purposeful integration of breath and movement. We move the body to still the mind and cultivate higher consciousness. We see our practice as a metaphor to understand where we are stuck; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This therapeutic system offers space, technique and support to recognize and transform habits, patterns and conditionings that hold us back and cause suffering for ourselves and others.
The Lakshmi Rising technique is unique in the way that we fuse current research in the fields of exercise science, physical therapy, neuro-science, mind-body psychology and epi-genetics with the time-tested tradition of classical yoga. This modern and informed relationship with yoga is extremely relevant and helpful in facing the current challenges of todays industrialized civilization. We view yoga as a universal gift to humanity with gratitude and great respect for its roots as we apply this living wisdom to real life in real time. Our founder and director, Dr Liz Lindh, studied directly with TKV Desikachar, and carries on the vinyasa lineage of Sri Krishnamacharya, considered by many to be the father of modern yoga.

Why We Do It
We have the innate desire to spread peace, awareness and harmony to benefit the greater good. It’s our purpose. We work each day to fulfill our dharma and live our yoga.
Humanity is currently going through a collective awakening and we are here to support it. The living wisdom of yoga is full of insights that teach us how to observe and better understand ourselves so that we can experience the present to the fullest and step into the future with more awareness of what is possible. Our trainings are aimed not only at educating great teachers, but also to empower our students to live consciously and thrive through the ongoing process of transformation.
What We Eat
We are spiritual environmentalists. We are also foodie artists who use the plate to create beauty and nourish our cellular growth through all of the senses.
There are many reasons why we choose a plant-based diet. Ahimsa, one aspect of yogic philosophy, is an ethical guideline that can be loosely translated to doing no harm, or to doing the least amount of harm to the fewest creatures possible. Creatures to consider include ourselves, other humans and animals, trees, plants, oceans, and Earth.
Gaia Gourmet is not a diet—it is delicious, colorful, and decadent vegetarian and vegan cuisine. Gaia Gourmet is part of the Lakshmi Rising family, providing the nourishment that supports all of our hard work and play. Food is our medicine, our culture, and our way to come together and enjoy life.
