Your Dream of a Yoga Teacher

Where do I begin!? I've been a consistent student in Lisa's classes since I began my yoga practice (about a year ago), and she's easily one of my favorite teachers! She incorporates a perfect balance of spirituality, demonstration, experience, alignment, body movement, flow and always comes fully prepared for each class! Every class is different and never comes off as boring or repetitive. Each of her classes is perfect for every level because she gives options and variations for the positions. Her classes are a mixture of calmness and serenity, as well as flow and energy! I always am eager for each of her classes and look forward to seeing her beautiful spirit and smile!

I highly recommend Lisa

What can I say, I love this girl .. she embodies yoga in so many ways, her gentle, kind, caring spirit carries though in all aspects Of her teaching. I love all her classes, especially the radiant reiki flow. Many of us have a difficult time finding the time to get in all the classes we'd love to take bit I always find time for Lisa's. ??

More than a guide for yoga

I have taken Lisa's hot yoga classes as well as her Yin classes for relaxation. What is impressive about Lisa is that she teaches from her heart. She is very spiritual and expresses that aspect of her in classes by the choice of music and readings she shares. She has a strong and soothing voices that gives leads you gently into various poses with lots of options. Yoga is more than a workout for me, it is the full mind body and spirit connection. With Lisa's open and warm attitude she is very approachable, and gave me much needed guidance for my personal development and well as for my practice. She is an excellent teacher who will adjust to meet your needs with support and guidance. Just love her!

Genuine Yoga Teacher

Lisa is a genuine and devoted yoga teacher. Her knowledge coupled with her warm personality provides the perfect balance in her yoga classes. She offers a beautiful vinyasa class that is perfectly balanced to please students looking for a mild or challenging practice, as she always offers modifications to the practitioners. Her yin classes are absolutely divine. She really knows how to guide students into a deep meditative state. I would say her classes are great for students looking for a physical and/or spiritual experience, as she always provides both ends of the spectrum.

Lisa is an incredible person overall and I would highly recommend crossing her path! :)

Thank you

Coming from an amazing yoga teacher this really warms my heart. Thank you for your kind words and of I would highly recommend you right back to a beginner or all the way to advanced yoga practioner. Your knowledge of the ancient wisdom of yoga and asanas is deep and rich. So much to offer and share.

You can tell she likes what she teaches

Lisa has subbed for a few classes Ive taken. It seems like every teacher at nearby studios are super thin and flexible, nice to have someone more on the thick side for a change.

I can tell she has read a lot about yoga for her own training. She is big into setting a focus for each class. I agree with the person who said that some of the information she tries to share can sound parroted or like that yoga-cliche talk people use for street cred in the community but I think you can always learn something from the class.

She offers a lot of options to reduce intensity of certain poses. Her music selection is typically quite good too. Lisa gives a lot of energy to each class, im actually surprised she isn't more thin because i'm always sore and wiped (in a good way) after each class.

I would recommend taking a class she is subbing or teaching.

Thank you

Anon ymous,

Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts. One of the things I have learned in my yoga journey is that yoga is for everyone, regardless of shape, size and constitution. In Ayurveda we learn that each person has a different constitution and it impacts the body we have been given. It has taken me many years but to love and accept myself exactly as I am and exactly as I am not. For many years I wanted to be very thin to fit the idealistic models in this world and the only way I can get to that weight, unnatural for me, is to do it in an unhealthy way. I think as women especially its important for us to hold each other high and support each other in this journey of self love and acceptance. There is enough pressure from the media, magazine and TV to try to be a certain way physically. I hope to see you again and maybe meet you one day. Namaste

Always prepared!

Lisa's classes whether yoga or meditation based (Yin) are always meticulously planned. She does recite read and share excerpts snd passages from her wide knowledge base but it is to distract and allow the poses to be held longer. Read another review here that I could not disagree more with on this point. Lisa prepares and shows tremendous compassion and wisdom every class she leads. Here classes are nicely challenging when a "flow", and her yin classes are an absolute treat.
Keep learning and sharing it is appreciated! Namaste and Mahalo.

Spiritual Intros to Class feel fake. Talks a lot

It's challenging to get in the flow of your practice because of all the ramblings by this instructor. On one hand, I like the spiritual aspects to yoga and when instructors naturally interweave spiritual principles into the practice. Ive been to four classes with Lisa Saremi and all of them have begun with listening to long and windy narrations from new age cds that i would rather hear anywhere else but on the mat.

more

Feels like she hasnt prepared anything for class and is just trying to eat up time. And the additional commentary she adds about being still and centered seem in opposition to her own way of being in the world. In short, she feels fake, and its distracting.

I do think Lisa Saremi offers a more varied range of exercises in her classes. I just wish she would stop talking and pay more attention to what asana comes next and for how long.

There are many other studios in the area and a few good, alternate teachers at the studio where she teaches...

Thank you

Chori,
Thanks for taking the time to write some feedback about your experience. Time is one of the most precious things we have so the fact that you carved it out of your life to offer this gift is greatly appreciated. I always look for this type of feedback for my own growth and development as we are always growing and learning. The good feedback is easier to share and be received but the potency is in feedback like this. I do put a great deal of time to prepare my classes and am sorry that it doesn't shine through to you. I know that we can't be everyone's favorite teacher but I always take the feedback into consideration to do my best to make as many people happy in the class.

Friendly Teacher with a diverse practice

Have you ever heard the saying, "Jack of all trades, master of none"? Well, that's the OPPOSITE of Lisa. Lisa's sculpt classes have whooped my butt, her vinyasa flow classes have made me smile, her Reiki classes have left me fulfilled and her yin classes have made me so warm and cozy. Lisa is a fabulous teacher. I would recommend her classes without hesitation. It's hard for me to choose, but perhaps my absolute fave class is Lisa's "Radiant Reiki Flow" at Asana Fit because it blends a couple of Lisa's specialties. Lisa is one of the kindest souls you'll meet. She remembers her students and truly cares about their journey.
