Liz

Liz began pole dancing in 2010 and it quickly became a passion. In 2012, she took up the practice of Ashtanga yoga in hopes of gaining flexibility and found that the results were not merely physical but transferred over into just about every realm of her life. She has since studied and practiced other yoga styles including Forrest Yoga, Baptiste power yoga, Yin/restorative, Yogance, and more.  She is a Yoga Alliance 200hr RYT, certified Forrest Yoga instructor, holds a bachelors degree in Kinesiology/Exercise Science from URI and is a certified Health Fitness Specialist w/ the American College of Sports Medicine. Liz opened RI Pole Space in 2017 with the intention of creating a space that celebrates and encourages movement, both as a form of self expression and empowerment and also as a healing force.
