E-RYT200, RYT500

Hi! I'm Lisa and I am excited to be joining the team at Breathe Yoga. I consider myself to be a constantly evolving yogi. I took up yoga to help manage the emotional stressors of caring for my ailing parent. I was already a long distance runner, but to my surprise yoga transformed me physically and reignited my joy of movement. I am in awe of the power and resiliency of the human body and spirit, and continue to be inspired everyday by my yoga clients who show this to be true.

I hold a 200 hour ERYT designation from Yoga Alliance and am currently working towards my 500 hour certification (expected completion July 2017). I have specialized yoga experience and training in working with athletes, individuals with chronic disease and cancer, and seniors. My style of teaching is informed by my background in exercise physiology, anatomy, mindfulness, alignment and core awareness.

As a health and wellness coach and yoga instructor, my passion is helping people across the age, ability, and fitness continuum to achieve their health and wellness goals, unleashing their super powers of joyful living. A healthy mix of work and play is one of my daily intentions. Some days it actually happens; many days it’s close! Curiosity, self compassion and humor are my constant companions.
