‘Lisa has deep insight into the bodymind and a way of bringing one back to what we are doing – the essence of yoga rather than the range of movement. She directs her student to intimately know themselves and understand how to heal and grow through the practice of yoga’
– Paul Betesh
‘Lisa is simply superb–- seamlessly combining her knowledge of Somatics and Yoga in a way that is clear, accessible and engaging. She brings a palpable warmth and enthusiasm into her teaching that is infectious and that encourages even the most timid of students to explore new territory.’
– Donna Farhi
‘Lisa honors the body and helps you get in touch with it. But it’s never just about the body; about how far you can bend, how much you can stretch. It’s about the spirit. It’s about emotions. It’s about healing and integrating the body, spirit, mind and heart. All done in a gentle and unobtrusive way, with a lot of laughs’.
