Lisa started practicing Bikram yoga in 2002. In the first year of doing Bikram yoga, she practiced every day for that whole year. She felt the full benefits of the yoga within that year and she continued on healing her body from her back problem to her diagnosed clinical depression. She still practices four to five times a week.
Lisa attended teacher training in Hawaii in 2007 and has been teaching since then! She teaches with love and compassion, presenting the goal of seeing the results that each student attains to the best of their ability.
Her favorite postures are triangle, standing head to knee, and rabbit- all postures that Lisa found impossible to do when she started her practice. Even with years of practice, she still finds these postures to be a challenge.
Something Lisa tells all of her students is that the words that we instruct you within the class are not just to help you with your physical ailments; the dialogue is also a song that is sung to your soul. If you listen with your heart, you will find your peace.
