Liz Maestre OTA/L (she/her)
Personal Trainer, Yoga Instructor & Health Coach
Hi everyone, I’m Liz and I’m super excited about my role as a Personal Trainer and Yoga Instructor at re+active.
I have always had a passion for health and wellness dating back to when I was a young high school student always working out to be strong and healthy. I started my health journey by training for a few half marathons, which turned into training for a marathon and a few triathlons over the course of my twenties. I love food and eating clean has been part of my life. Growing up with a Hispanic Grandma who always taught us to cook clean and eat simple, this became a staple as I began my life with my husband in our own home. I always believed in putting myself first, filling up my cup so that in turn I could be a more thriving and whole person as a wife, therapist, friend, sister and eventually one day a mom. Once I became a Mom, I knew that self-regulation was key in me being a parent, and that having kids really opened me up to my own traumas and eventually my healing journey. I am a huge advocate for trauma informed learning, as it has been key to my healing and has allowed me to help others in their healing journey as an Occupational Therapy Assistant, Health Coach, and Yoga Instructor. I have a degree in Occupational Therapy from Loma Linda University. I have a Functional Health Coaching certificate from The Institute of Integrative Nutrition, a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training through Yoga Alliance, and a 20 hour certificate for Trauma Informed Yoga. I believe that I am always a student, open to learning always, and in the future would love to continue my yoga training to become 500 hour certified and eventually a Yoga Trauma Informed Therapist. When I’m not working you can find me in my kitchen cooking new clean and simple recipes for myself and my family. I love to practice asana in the comfort of my home and have gravitated to more restorative yoga for more nervous system regulation and rest. I love to have friends and family over for connection and to eat! Love match lattes, coffee, and boba! I love having a teenage daughter who teaches me all the cool things like anime, Korean bands, and patience. My son keeps me laughing with his amazing sense of humor and passion for living. I’m excited to be part of this team at re+active and to embrace this journey with a lens of curiosity, learning, and always an open heart.
