Lisa took her first yoga class in high school and began dabbling in and out of yoga for several years, always returning when life got stressful. After feeling stuck and desiring change in her life, she decided to fully commit to a yoga practice, getting on her mat three to four days a week in the fall of 2014. She felt empowered and connected to her community with this consistent yoga practice. Yoga inspired her to see what is possible on and off her mat, and the practice taught her compassion for not only herself but also others. Lisa completed her 200-hr teacher training in the Spring of 2018 through EmPower School of Yoga
Lisa serves on the volunteer committee for Small World Yoga. She also rotate teaches the Sunday 10:30 AM class at the SWY Community Studio, and she teaches an outreach class at Hillsboro High School.
