Lizette Pompa

Born in Mexico, Lizette started traveling at the age of 18. Her mother pushed her to see the world, and she realized that the quote ”home is where your heart is” was a true fit for her life. She’s been living in different countries and although she went back home (Monterrey, Mexico) a few times, she managed to leave again.

She found yoga while living in Madrid in 2008 and never looked back.

Lizette is a versatile yoga teacher who loves to incorporate strength in different ways through class. She now teaches mainly Vinyasa and Hatha. She came to yoga for the physical benefits, but today she also finds strength and empowerment through meditation and breathing exercises.

Her mission is to inspire others to get physically and mentally strong while using traditional yoga mixed with strength drills and workouts. She is particularly happy when she can combine yoga and empowering women, which is an ongoing project for her, especially with yoga strength drills.

From Flexibility to Mobility

When we think about mobility it can be easy to get it confused or mixed with flexibility; mobility is the ability to take a joint to its full range of motion with control.

This program is divided into five classes to help you work through different parts of the body and work on your mobility. To be able to achieve a good amount of mobility, flexibility is a significant prerequisite.

During these five classes, we will try to take our flexibility into mobility, working hard to control our full range of motion and by doing so, find stability in our joints.
