Our Team

Carmen Ruiz

Carmen Ruiz

Carmen’s been practicing yoga for over 10 years. As a practitioner and mother, Carmen has discovered the freedom of letting go and learning to be present. As a certified instructor, she’s committed to self-inquiry, deepening her own practice and contributing to the growing
yoga community by sharing the practice with others.

Carmen’s passion for yoga and the parallels we can draw from its teachings to live more mindfully, led to the creation of Liv Yoga.

Rudi van der Walde

Rudi discovered yoga and meditation while traveling in India in the late 1970’s and has continued to cultivate a disciplined, daily practice
ever since.

Rudi’s yoga practice keeps him grounded and connected to his passions. His love of art and nature resonate in everything he does. We’re thrilled to have him share his experience and practice, in selfless service, during our free ‘Liv Calm’ meditation classes on Saturdays.

Victoria Avila

Victoria Avila

Victoria began her yoga journey when introduced to Ashtanga over 15 years ago. She continued her exploration of other styles such as Iyengar and Sivananda before traveling to Nicaragua to complete her 500HR training with Modo Yoga, where she continues to teach.

Yoga has helped Victoria overcome a lifelong battle with anxiety and depression and has enabled her to re-connect to her truest, most compassionate and creative self. She believes that a consistent practice is a framework to cultivate greater focus, balance, strength and stability and is committed to helping her students develop these skills as they explore themselves through their practice.

Kamil has been teaching and practicing yoga for over eight years. He has solid roots in traditional Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa, Power Yoga and Bikram Yoga. Kamil’s classes are powerfully engaging, allowing students to maintain their focus while keeping a positive and intense energy. His journey began in Morocco when he obtained his 200HR Hatha Yoga teacher training certification. Kamil’s passion grew immensely beyond this point and his thirst for knowledge led him to India. During this time he undertook a 300HR Hatha and Vinyasa Flow TTC which he carried with him to Nepal, China, France and Canada. Kamil aspires to share his understanding of yoga by encouraging others to dedicate their mind, body and soul to their practice.
