Dr Elizabeth Visceglia

Dr Elizabeth Visceglia is an American, licensed physician, Board certified in Psychiatry, and a 20+ year student of Yoga. She met her teacher, Guruji Prakash Shankar Vyas, a Kriya Yogi in the lineage of Lahiri Mahasaya, 15 years ago when she was living in Varanasi, India, and she continues to study and practice with him. She is the lead author of the first published US study exploring the effects of Yoga practice on people with schizophrenia, which found that Yoga has a profound impact on participants’ symptoms and quality of life.

A second study is forthcoming. A former middle school teacher, AIDS educator in Kenya, and graduate of Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Elizabeth completed her training in Psychiatry at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. She lives with her family in New York City where she maintains a private practice and supervises both yoga therapists and psychotherapists who work at the intersection of Yoga and mental health.
