Elizabeth Crisci is a yoga teacher and artist in Fairfield County, Connecticut. She is the creator of Love by E, handmade gemstone mala and jewelry. She teaches in workshops, special events, and trainings in the Northeast in addition to a range of regular, weekly classes at Kaia Yoga. She teaches smart and accessible yoga designed to make you feel good.

When not in the studio you can find her in the woods with her dog, a friend and a smile. Elizabeth draws inspiration from the scent of the trees, the crisp air and the warm sun. Sharing her love of the forest is one of her favorite summer past times. A practitioner of yoga and meditation for almost 20 years, Elizabeth sees hiking as a natural extension of yoga practice, bringing connectivity and space to the business of modern life.

What are your goals as a teacher?
To lead my students back home to themselves. To a place of acceptance where they can develop the intelligence of their bodies and a curiosity about their own capacity. This is where growth begins.
If you weren't a yoga teacher, what would you be?
An artist, I majored in Photography at the School of Visual Arts and fine art is still a passion of mine.
What does organic mean to you?
Unforced, unf*cked with, raw and natural elements appearing just as they are.
What advice would you give to someone who is just beginning yoga?
Imagine every practice like one brick you are laying. To build a house (or a challenging pose) it may take many bricks, but each brick is equally valuable.
Besides yoga, what do you do to keep a healthy lifestyle?
Prepare my own meals, hiking, cross fit, meditation and lots of water.
What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?
“Be yourself and your students will find you.” from my mentor, Jean Koerner
What do you love about Hyde?
What I love about Hyde is that I can trust in the ethics of what I’m wearing I know Hyde comes from the heart, and the organic cotton pieces are the most comfortable in my closet.
