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. In 2005 she enrolled in a training program to become a yoga teacher. Lisa has since acquired over 1000 hours of training. As a teacher, Lisa strives to guide students towards the divine wisdom that lies within each and every one of us.
Through the doorway of yoga, Lisa began to study Sanskrit. In 2009, Lisa completed an 18 month immersion with Dr. Poole utilizing Sanskrit in teaching Yoga. She began teaching Sanskrit for Yoga Teachers under Dr. Poole’s tutelage. Lisa continued her Sanskrit studies with Manorama, the founder of Luminous Shabda. Hosted by YogaPod, CorePower, FigureYoga and numerous studios, Lisa leads Sanskrit Teacher Trainings and Workshops throughout Colorado.
She has also trained with Matthew Sanford in Adaptive Yoga, which makes yoga accessible to people who are differently-abled. Lisa has taught yoga at two Detox Centers, through Phoenix Multisport, bringing the practice to people recovering from substance abuse, and supporting the recovery of body, mind, and spirit.
In 2011, Lisa discovered StandUp Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga and earned certifications through Paddle Into Fitness to teach SUP Yoga & Fitness. She now leads Colorado’s Premier StandUp Paddleboard Yoga Intensives/Teacher Trainings.
