With a background of more than 20 years in karate and physical fitness, Lisa mindfully blends her deep experience in martial arts with the Yin and Yang of yoga. She is highly experienced in her practice and has taught in a variety of settings in and around Howard and Montgomery counties.
Lisa’s teaching is influenced by a fusion of Hatha, Vinyasa and Therapeutic styles of yoga. In her class you will feel supported with plenty of alignment cues and ways to customize the practice to fit your body in that moment.
Leading with the breath, Lisa guides us through a practice filled with inquiry. Given time to simply be and explore sensations in each pose, the mind has time to settle and discover something deeper within. Attention to both effort and ease helps to bring full awareness of our entire being—mind, body, and spirit.
Lisa believes in yoga as a life practice, one that helps us both physically and mentally to move through life with a greater sense of ease and peace.
