2013 Nominee: Elizabeth Peregrina

The New Americano

Like a true New Americana, Elizabeth originally picked up yoga to heal an injury, and wound up touching the lives of many Latinos by embracing a tradition outside of her culture and making it her own. She got in-tune with meditative practices, and soon became a yoga instructor and an Ayurvedic counselor. Through eastern healing, Elizabeth helps the Latino community in the greater Los Angeles area help themselves physically and spiritually, all while sharing her practice beyond the mat through her blog www.lollipoproyalty.comĀ
