Lisa started practicing yoga at age 15. She is passionate about the subtleties of proper alignment and how they contribute to a feeling of flow: complete absorption in the moment through movement. In 2009 she did her first teacher training at Tula Yoga in Toronto and then a second training in 2010 at a Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India. The hours of breathwork and meditation she practiced in India are the basis of the synchronized yoga sequences she creates in every class. Her dance background allows her to choreograph smooth transitions that teach core compression and body awareness and to design progressions that produce a sense of single-minded immersion in the body.
Lisa’s extensive training also includes Pre- and Post-Natal Yoga, Dance Conditioning, Fascial Anatomy, Aerial Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Chakra Flow. Influences on her style have come from the flowing sequences of Shiva Rea and the mind-body connection awareness of Seane Corne.
13 years after her first class, Lisa has integrated her love of dance and yoga to create flowing meditation sequences that allow each student to increase their body awareness and ground their practice in a steady rhythm of breath. She is inspired every day by the moments of discovery in the minds and bodies of her students and by the dedicated practices she sees in every class.
