Karma Spotlight: Elizabeth Aquino

Elizabeth is a native New Yorker and took her first class in 2011. Her mother introduced her to yoga and thought it would be good for her scoliosis. With a busy life as a mom and a freelance performer, Elizabeth practiced when she could. When her mother passed away in 2015 she started practing more regularly and joined our Karma team at the Upper East Side. After taking a break due to a few injuries, she returend to the Karma program and her practice in 2017.

What she enjoys most about being a Karma Yogi is feeling like she is part of a family. When she comes to the studio, it feels like a second home. She also loves making friends at the studio and practicing with a group of people that are like-minded.

Currently Elizabeth is practicing often, getting into the yoga room at least 4 but sometimes up to 8 classes a week! What keeps her motivated is watching herself grow in mind, body, and spirit. It really is addicting!

Elizabeth has practiced all of our classes and truly believes that Bikram Yoga is well complemented by Hot HIIT, Hot Vinyasa, and Yin Nidra. Hot HIIT has been especially transformative for her and she loves that it is like a party instead of a workout!

Elizabeth is still a performer and is currently a director of children’s musical theater in Times Square. In her spare time she loves traveling, sitting on the beach, cooking, reading, gardening, going to support her friends in their shows, and drinking good wine with her husband and friends.
