Lisa’s strong practice is a true testament to over 25 years of yoga practice. Her teachings inspire her students to develop a deeper connection with their own body, mind, breath and wellness.
Like most people, she worked in the corporate world for many years and started yoga to de-stress. At that point in her life, Lisa was looking for direction and read that yoga was like a ‘happy pill’. She was under the impression that yoga was all about meditation until she met one of her first teachers in a Hatha Yoga class and found that the athleticism of the practice brought her to a place of inner peace. She hasn’t looked back since.
To Lisa, yoga has evolved to become a holistic approach to wellness, involving much more than physical postures, but also including an emphasis on stilling the changing states of the mind (yogaśh-citta-vrtti-nirodhah). Her classes are strong, rigorous, yet refined, as they offer her students an understanding of the physical body through key anatomical focuses and attention to alignment. Her approach is extremely hands-on, and she encourages her students to develop and progress at their own pace.
Deeply passionate about her study and deep-seeded knowledge in myofascial and trigger point release, Lisa uses the technique as therapy and rehabilitation for students recovering from injuries. As part of her continued education in yoga and using yoga as medicine, therapy and alternative healing, Lisa is currently pursuing her 1000-hour advanced yoga teacher training with Yoga Medicine under the direct tutelage of Tiffany Cruikshank.
Besides a yoga teacher accreditation, Lisa is also a certified Balanced Body Pilates instructor, a Usui Reiki energy healer, and a Star 1 Spinning instructor based in Singapore.
