She is a Registered Professional Counsellor and a Certified Life Coach with a B.A in Psychology and Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance Studies. All of her studies and her personal experiences have equipped her with skills to help you find your way to greater fulfillment through movement, mindfulness and curiosity.
Lisa is a lifetime learner, always seeking to have a deeper experience of being alive. She loves having conversations; juicy, deep discussion with loved ones, inquisitive talk with strangers or chatting over the fence with her neighbours. Being out in nature enlivens her; surfing, SUP-ing, snowboarding, hiking or walking in the forest with my dog. Travel excites her; whether she is immersed in a different culture or on a road trip to visit her folks, it fires her up just the same. Lisa's greatest inspiration is human connection and the exploration of self that is required to develop this connection. She believes this journey encompasses the full spectrum of the human experience and is one of life's greatest adventures.
What should students expect from your class? I aim to offer a balanced class of strength building and stretching with a little philosophy and psychology sprinkled through. I hope to challenge and nurture both beginners and more advanced students, guiding with clear and simple instruction to start, then offering more complex intricacies to explore if desired. I encourage students to be curious and compassionate as they notice their tendencies on the mat. I believe that cultivating this self-awareness throughout practice ultimately supports a more empowered journey to well-being.
