Lisa Lucy, OTR, RCYT, is a licensed occupational therapist and registered yoga teacher who has been working in the medical/health/wellness field for 30 years. Lisa’s received a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from Texas Women’s University. During her career, she has enjoyed working in hospital, private and out-patient clinic, home health as well as private school environments. Lisa has extensive experience and a passion for working with children with a variety of diagnosis such as sensory processing, learning and developmental disabilities, ADD/ADHD, autism and physical disabilities.
When Lisa began applying a yogic approach to occupational therapy, she immediately began to see a positive change in herself and in her clients/patients. After her mother was diagnosed with depression and later with Alzheimer’s disease in 2009, she felt comfort in her yoga practice, leading to her journey of training in preparation to teach yoga.
Most of Lisa’s teacher training has been with Michelle Andrie at Priya Yoga in Dallas, Anna Almond and Maggie Metzinger with Purple Lotus in Southlake, and Dawn Harris with Crescent Yoga in Midlothian. She has also studied Shaka Kaur Khulsa at Radiant Child Yoga, and yoga therapy with Judith Lassater. Currently, she is focusing on yoga therapy, restorative yoga and kid’s yoga.
It is Lisa’s hope that she can share with others how yoga is not only helpful for the physical body, but also for giving inner strength and peace. She believes that yoga can provide guidance to find answers within ourselves for any situation or in response to any event by taking one breath at a time.
Lisa resides in Midlothian on over 20 acres which she enjoys with her husband, four dogs and three horses. When not at home or working, she enjoys travelling to watch her daughter play volleyball at Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee.
