Lisa loves to teach and it shows! She cares about her students. She begins her yoga classes by connecting with each student: asking about their prior experience with yoga, about any injuries and if they have any needs or requests for the class that is to begin.
I have taken yoga classes with other instructors but it is simply not the same. Lisa creates a supportive, non-competitive environment where all students are invited to participate in their own yoga practice. Whether a beginner or an advanced student, Lisa explains all the poses in a clear and precise manner and she modifies all the poses to meet the needs of the student.
Before I was introduced to Lisa’s yoga classes, I thought yoga was all about headstands and complicated poses. Instead, Lisa taught me that yoga is truly about breathing and being at one with your own body; to challenge yourself but to do only that which you can do.
I have followed Lisa around the city just to take classes with her. Once you take a yoga class with Lisa, you will too!

"I always feel better after a yoga class with Lisa. Her vinyasa class, which she begins with wise words of her own or others, flows beautifully, reinvigorating mind and body."
Edmund Weisberg, Medical editor/writer, University of Pennsylvania
"I do yoga because it helps me to live when I’m not writing. And to breathe when I’m not writing.
And to be a better mother, a better teacher, a better friend, a better lover."
