“I have benefited so much from Lisa’s patient guidance, humor and skill.”
“I discovered Lisa was certified to work with people who have multiple sclerosis as I do. I’d taken a yoga class many years ago and thought of yoga as bodily movements accompanied by breathing patterns that led one to achieve specific poses. Lisa has helped me to accept that even if I never, ever do a true yoga pose, I am still practicing yoga when I breathe and chant through to a greater sense of equanimity or when I am mindful rather than fearful.”
“Lisa is an amazing teacher/leader/sage – and I feel very lucky to have found her.”
“Lisa, you are wonderful and a great teacher and you have fabulous ideas.”
