Lisa teaches vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa is the synchronization of breath with movement, generally taught as one breath, one movement. Lisa aims for her classes to be vigorous, fun, playful, and challenging, filled with modifications and variations to help her students tailor their practice to their needs. She encourages her students to listen to their bodies and find their edge each time they come to the mat. Lisa teaches classes for yogis of all levels - newbies to advanced.
