Lisa’s yoga teaching is based on the true meaning of the word yoga: to find union

Her dream is to create a community of hope, health and happiness that inspires students to connect with the inherent Divinity within.

“Most of us move through life yearning for freedom and space to ‘be ourselves.’ Yoga provides an individualized architecture that is based on thousands of years of collective wisdom to help us do just that. Teaching yoga is teaching people to genuinely heal, love and be themselves,” Lisa explains.

Lisa’s primary teacher is Tiffany Cruikshank and she is a Yoga Medicine® Registered Therapeutic Specialist.

Lisa holds a Master’s Degree in Education and undergraduate degrees in both Education and Religious Studies. In 2015, she graduated with her eRYT-500 hour Credentials with a specialization in Yoga Therapeutics through The Integrated Institute of Yoga Studies (IIYS). Lisa is an expert in spinal anatomy and using yoga as a functional therapy for back pain and spinal injuries.
