Lisa has been practicing yoga for almost 20 years and teaching for 10. She graduated from her initial 200 hour training at Kripalu in 2004, and has since completed over 500 hours of training through Yoga Alliance accredited programs, and is currently enrolled in a 300hr program with master teacher, Kelly Morris, in NYC.

Lisa’s main area of interest is giving people the tools to manage the stresses of everyday life. She learned the art of Yoga Nidra from Richard Miller, founder of iRest, trained in Metta meditation at the Burlington Buddhist Fellowship, and is a reiki practitioner.

With over 10 years experience as a classroom teacher, Lisa understands the need to create a safe and compassionate space for students to pursue their own inquiry. She divides her time between southern Vermont, her hometown in England, and running camps in Oregon and Colorado for tweens and teens.

AMAZING Yoga Instructor!!!!

In a word: spectacular. What distinguishes Lisa is that she provides the whole yoga experience - thoughtful instruction, incredible music, inspiring passages, fabulous massage, soothing aromatherapy, and even a singing bowl at the end of class. As a result, I leave Lisa's class feeling completely rejuvenated. Lisa's class is a gift of pure love.

Caring and fun teacher

Lisa is a fantastic yoga teacher who makes each class interesting and fun. Even in a traditional flow class, Lisa adds in new and different poses to keep challenging the students. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the practice and is continually seeking to further her training. She has a great balance between demonstrating poses and moving throughout the room to offer help. Lisa is one of my favorite yoga teachers ever. I highly recommend her.

Lisa's class is always a delight to attend. She is wise, spiritual, and has a nice flow to her yoga. She creates a loving and nurturing atmosphere while inspiring her class to reach within themselves and to others. I adore her class.

Yoga instructor extraordinairre

Lisa provides a calming atmosphere to appreciate the details for a complete yoga practice. I'm pretty picky when it comes to yoga instructors and would follow Lisa to whatever studio she would go (but hopefully she's not going anywhere!). Very caring and warm to all yogis!
