Lisa's passion for teaching enables her to connect deeply to others in a friendly and honest way, naturally through the practice of yoga. She believes that her contribution as a yoga teacher is a small step in helping her students create a more sustainable, way of coping with every day stresses through the physical practice of yoga and meditative breath work. One breath at a time, moment by moment, allowing for a more compassionate, joy filled existence, while moving through the gateway of present moment awareness. She has been teaching yoga in various studios and venues since 2005. She also loves working one on one with her students and small groups and integrates her years of experience as a certified personal and fitness trainer, with her training, credentials and knowledge of yoga. As a lover of nature she holds special outdoor classes throughout the seasons, as a reflection and reminder of the beauty and freedom of the the great outdoors, and her responsibility for stewardship to this planet.
