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 began teaching Itsy Bitsy Yoga; a developmentally enriching program designed specifically for babies, tots and tykes. Soon after, I introduced 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 repertoire also includes certifications in pre- and post-natal yoga.
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 sons.

“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."
