Lisa took her first yoga class shortly after the birth of her daughter in 2000 and was immediately hooked. Having never considered herself particularly athletic, she was drawn to the accessibility of the postures, as well as the flowing grace of linking breath to movement.
Lisa completed her 200-hour Teacher Training at Yoga Works in early 2004 with Julie Kleinman, Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller, and Lisa Walford, and her 500-hour Teacher Training at Green Tara Yoga in 2010-11 with Doug Moss. She has since taken numerous workshops and intensives with such extraordinarily inspirational teachers as Manju Jois, Alan Finger, Shiva Rea, David Life and Sharon Gannon, Dharma Mittra, Ganga White, and Tim Miller. Lisa also completed an 8-week Everyday Ayurveda course with Marisa Laursen of the California College of Ayurveda. She studied teaching Yin Yoga with Doug Moss and in early 2015 completed a 10-hour Intensive Training in Functional Anatomy and Yin Yoga with Paul & Suzee Grilley.
In 2010, with her teaching partner Damien McVey, Lisa opened Just Yoga, a simple neighborhood studio with the intention of catering to students who wished to focus on the basics. Lisa has been training and mentoring new teachers for the last 12 years.
Lisa specializes in Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga and works with her students to help them understand how their anatomical differences may influence and impact their asana practice.
