Lisa took her first yoga class over 17 years ago, and started her teaching career in Whistler after completing an initial teacher training in 2006. Since then she has attended another 500hr training in hot yoga and completed workshops in pregnancy & therapeutic yoga, teaching a variety of power, vinyaysa and therapeutic yoga classes to Pemberton & Whistler Yogis.
Believing that yoga can benefit everyone - and that everyone is different - she encourages her students to become their own teachers and doctors, by paying attention to their own bodies and minds in order to discern what works best for them.
Lisa has always had a fascination with the human condition - holding a B.App Science Degree with a major in Human Biology and a minor in psychology. She continues to learn and draw inspiration from a variety of yoga teachers and styles - including Iyengar, Ashtanga & Anusara. She is an ongoing student of biology and anatomy, studying the work of yoga anatomists Paul Grilley, Ray Long and has been fortunate to attend workshops with well respected therapeutic yogi Suzi Hatley Aldous
A perpetual student of the Universe, Lisa enjoys the teachings of Awake humans such as the Buddha & Eckhart Tolle, and of course Mother Nature herself, themes which tend to leak into her classes.
