Practical and light-hearted, Lisa’s expertise and wisdom are second to none.
Lisa is a gem of a teacher. Avoiding complicated terminology, she uses practical tools to lead you directly to the heart of yoga - a strong and steady integration of physical and emotional awareness, as well as somatic and cognitive flexibility.
Classes with Lisa are unhurried, considered, and progressive, foregoing fast-paced sequences for graceful, sophisticated movement that will bring about lasting positive change in your body and mind. She has a pragmatic and objective delivery that shines a welcome light on practises and concepts that can sometimes seem obscure.
In her own words, Lisa’s classes are “breath-led, fluid, explorative and playful. Moving slowly and mindfully to develop inner awareness and outward stability, the body grows stronger, healthier and more pliable whilst the mind becomes more peaceful and still. A shift from a state of tension to a state of relaxation is a very powerful catalyst for integration and change.”
Lisa’s down-to-earth manner belies a masterly knowledge and understanding of yoga. Her instruction and guidance are excellent and you are in very safe hands.
