Biography

Luisa F. Alvizu was trained as a medical doctor with a specialization in Dermatology. She developed an early interest in how the medical issues of her patients related to their psychological, emotional and economic backgrounds. As a long term practitioner of yoga and meditation, she was always passionate about helping her patients see the connection between mental and physical health. This passion also animates her current work teaching mindfulness to children and adolescents. Teaching mindfulness with a scientific understanding of its benefits has brought her many opportunities to work with youth, parents and school communities around wellness issues.
