Lisa went to yoga classes for many years before finding yoga as a practice, when she started taking Anusara-inspired classes in 2004. A precise focus on healthy alignment and a truly uplifting philosophy made the practice a part of her life, both on and off the mat. She continued her studies in earnest at the World Yoga Center in 2006, immersing in the physical practice and beginning a meditation practice. She completed WYC’s Anusara Immersions I-III in 2009 and Teacher Training in 2010. Lisa is a Yoga Alliance 200-hour registered yoga teacher and has studied extensively with WYC Director and longtime meditation teacher Rudrani Farbman Brown and senior Certified Anusara Teacher Jackie Prete, including therapeutic applications of yoga. Lisa has supplemented her studies in anatomy and therapeutics with Ellen Saltonstall and in meditation with Swami Shankarananda of Melbourne, Australia (formerly of Brooklyn). Lisa creates a nurturing environment in her classes, both in the precision of her alignment instructions and the care with which she addresses her students’ inner experience. Teaching yoga allows her to actively and regularly honor the light of Awareness that lives in all of us, and for this, Lisa offers gratitude to all her teachers, students and mentors alike.
