A long-time Winthrop resident and “gym rat”, Lisa never imagined she would be so in love with yoga. As a fitness instructor, Lisa has been interested in human anatomy and became certified to teach yoga in 2005. Lisa is fascinated by how our bodies hold, flow and land with such grace and strength and that we can breathe ourselves to a clear mind-- our body’s way of speaking with no words, trusting our inner voices.
Lisa’s classes focus on grounded breath work and alignment cues during a strong vinyasa. Lisa provides a personal touch, assisting you to different options and modifications that will work for your specific practice, allowing you to leave class feeling centered, refreshed and satisfied.
