Lisa was led to take her first yoga class in 1999, a recommended remedy to a bodybuilding injury. She found that yoga brought not only physical healing, but also the opportunity for a more meaningful connection with herself and others.

As a teacher, Lisa strives to guide students towards the divine wisdom that lies within each and every one of us.
