Lisa has a BA from Skidmore College and an MS for the New York Institute of Technology. She is a certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor, E-RYT 500 and among many other wellness certifications, an Advanced Teacher of Therapeutic Yoga.
Lisa’s journey began when she entered her first dance class at the age of four. Years of training led to dance performance and choreography, gradually evolving into a career in the fitness profession. In her late thirties she discovered yoga. This was a revelation, for it proved to be the culminating discipline that enabled her to integrate all her interests. In her personal life, yoga has become her primary mode of self-expression. In her teaching, it becomes one of three pillars: dance, fitness, yoga.
These pillars support what has turned out to be an even more encompassing love: teaching itself. Lisa realized she had a passion for sharing the joy of movement with others. A significant part of her life now lies in helping students open to the sources of joy within their own bodies. She takes delight in seeing them respond to what is really a simple truth: Movement is life.
