Lisa Nevar-Landsmann, Yoga Teacher & Facilitator
I am Lisa. I have enjoyed a personal yoga practice since 1996. I completed my 750-hour teacher training program at Esther Myers Yoga Studio in Toronto and began teaching in 2008. I share yoga for any level of experience and readiness and I do so with compassion, humility and humour. I invite students to discover their own abilities and to work with their challenges, creating truly personalized practices.
In 2006, I discovered my passion for teaching Itsy Bitsy Yoga; a developmentally enriching program designed specifically for babies, tots and tykes (from newborn to 4 years of age). As the little ones grew, so too did my teaching repertoire and I enthusiastically expanded my offerings to include programs for children and youth to share with their parents. Exploring yoga poses, movements, breathing and meditation with youth, who are in competitive activities or performance, has proven to be a wonderful complement to their rigorous training and practice schedules. My family-focused programming also includes certifications in pre- and post-natal yoga.
Since 2016, I have had the privilege of sharing yoga-movement and breath work with autistic adults. I welcome inquiries from families and support organizations; please feel free to reach out.
I welcome private yoga students of any ability and have practiced with many individuals who are managing physical limitations, illness, or developmental differences.
My favourite place to practice yoga is outdoors, deep in nature with my two growing children.

“Lisa has a unique combination of a sunny disposition and an unwavering respect for her yogi moms and babies. She always brightened our day with her cheerful smile and wonderful outlook. I loved how she facilitated my bonding with my daughter in an unobtrusive way. Her classes flowed beautifully, which I think is due to her hard work behind the scenes and a natural flair for teaching."
"I wanted to pass along our thanks again for the parent-youth yoga session. We had a great time this session and we are looking forward to starting again. I really appreciate the opportunity to slow down, breathe, and spend some quality time with my daughter. I am also so happy that she is learning yoga and meditation while she is young so that she can build upon her practice as she grows."
