Liz Derby

C-IAYT, ERYT-500, ACE Certified Coach


Liz has been working in the wellness industry for over 30 years. Upon graduating from Tulane University with a degree in Anthropology, she became certified as a personal trainer and was soon offered the position as Fitness Director at a prestigious tennis club in New Orleans. She has worked with all levels of fitness from beginner to professional athlete. Liz has always had a holistic approach to health, honoring not just the body but the mind and spirit as well. Liz provides a safe and compassionate environment to facilitate healing.

In 2012, Liz began studying yoga. Instead of using yoga to supplement her fitness knowledge, yoga became a way of life. Practicing the tools of yoga supported her own mental health journey and in 2017, Liz became a certified Yoga Therapist, specializing in Yoga for Mental Health. She implements her knowledge as a personal trainer, health coach, meditation teacher and yoga therapist to guide people on their own path of mental health. Liz grew up in Baltimore, but most of her family lives in New Orleans, so she makes a point of visiting them at least once a year. When not at work, you can usually find her in her garden, hiking in the mountains or spending precious time with her friends and family.
