Former Navy Pilot, Founder of Walkabout Yoga, Liz Corwin on the victories that emerge from perceived failure, the choice to prioritize practice, and the ultimate walkabout.
Liz Corwin is world traveling yoga teacher, storyteller, and creator of Walkabout Yoga Retreats & Teacher Trainings. She is also a 15-year US Navy Officer and former F-18 Navy jet pilot. Today, she still serves as a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy Reserves supporting the Naval War College. She began teaching yoga to the military community while on deployment in 2008 aboard the U.S.S. Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier, sharing her practice and experience with other pilots and friends. Since then she has continued traveling the world teaching yoga to both our military community and civilian population as a way to bridge the divide of understanding. Liz's teachings and storytelling focus on deep inner shadow work, redefining strength and the warrior ethos, and embracing vulnerability as we uncover true self-acceptance, self-love, and healing.
She has recently been featured in the New York Times & Yoga Journal Magazine, is the creator of “Walkabout Yoga” Yoga Retreats and the free online video series “Yoga for Military Warriors” in partnership with Gaiam and The Give Back Yoga Foundation, cover model for Beryl Bender Birch’s book “Yoga for Warriors” and ambassador for the woman-owned yoga brand KiraGrace.
