“Lisa is deeply knowledgable about yoga, but more important, she’s a true teacher — able to share her knowledge in ways that make sense to others. She is caring and warm. Above all, she is highly attuned to her students’ needs, always watching and asking for feedback, making sure that what you’re doing is really working for you as an individual. ”
Last year, at the age of 67, I was diagnosed with late onset asthma. I began treatment with appropriate medication but my lung function was limited and I often felt like I couldn’t take a deep breath. I had never practiced yoga (or any other form of exercise) but decided to add alternative approaches in the hope of increasing my breathing capacity. After working with Lisa for only a few weeks, the change in my breath capacity was astounding. I am able to work at home with the written practices she creates for me, changing the practice as my work with her evolves. Lisa creates a safe, nurturing place where I have been able to, for the first time, find a way to develop a yoga practice. She is able, with the gentlest touch, to shift my awareness in a way that allows me to change my relationship to my body and my breath.”
“Lisa is a joy to work with- smart, knowledgeable, understanding, and sensitive to my special concerns. Based upon her extensive expertise, it was obvious that she is able to tailor various programs and techniques to particular issues and needs. I would certainly recommend her to my friends!!!!! And I will keep practicing!”

About me

I am a certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and Viniyoga™ therapist, as well as an E-RYT 500 in the tradition of T.K.V. Desikachar (son of Sri T. Krishnamacharya --one of the most influential yoga teachers of the 20th century). I teach one-on-one and small private classes using all the tools yoga offers: postures, breath work, chanting, meditation, personal ritual, and study of texts, according to the interests of my students. I also teach somatic movement, and am a Student-in-Training of Hanna Somatic Education, as well as a certified Clinical Somatic Exercise Instructor. Since 2019, I have been studying Āyurveda, the sister science to yoga which focuses on diet and lifestyle to create and maintain health and wellbeing, and I also offer Āyurvedic health counseling.

I currently see clients with structural, physiological, and emotional conditions. Together with your primary healthcare provider, we will craft a personalized practice that is efficient, elegant, and effective to help you realize your optimal potential and well-being.

My Philosophy of Care

I meet people where they are with compassion and kindness.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Clients should expect a thorough intake in which we discuss current concerns and past history, a physical assessment, followed by an introduction to breathing, and, depending on the presenting concern, an introduction to somatic movement.

My Inspiration

I was inspired to become a healer by a near-fatal car accident which made me reevaluate my life's purpose.

“Lisa is an amazing teacher. I have been studying with her privately for the past six months. Let’s start with the obvious—Lisa has the best voice for yoga. Her calm demeanor immediately puts me at ease, no matter how stressed and tight I am. I can listen to her all day long. During my very first session, Lisa put bolsters on the floor as a starting point, and I just fell in love! Who knew that my body could be supported in such a way that I felt weightless? I was able to see a difference immediately. I have fibromyalgia, so I always have pain and stiffness. With Lisa’s guidance, I am less stiff, and I’m able to get up from a sitting position without creaking!”
Yoga with Lisa is such an enlightening and enlivening experience. Her ability to listen so attentively and respond so thoughtfully and creatively is truly a gift. Lisa has an upbeat alive approach, yet is firmly grounded. She has made it possible for me, after years of abandoning yoga due to health issues, to return to practicing in a way that has already been life changing. Thank you Lisa!”
“I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a customized, fine-tuned set of tools to manage pain, increase your strength or flexibility, or to simply gain confidence in the practice of living in your body. She is an amazing teacher as well as an amazing listener, and working with her really feels like a collaboration in the best sense.”
