About Embrace Every Angle
The mission is to create fine art photographs celebrating yoga as a holistic approach to expression, creativity and existence, as well as to raise awareness of the beauty and artistry abundant in Rochester. In demonstrating that artistic expression and individual and community well-being go hand in hand, Liza and friends brought together the fitness and arts industry to create a project for the betterment of both our local, as well as our global community. After years of struggling with an eating disorder and Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), this project has also been journey of body acceptance and self-love for Liza.
