Lisa began her Yoga training in 1999 in Christchurch under the tutelage of Iyengar teacher Richard Tweedie, whilst she was studying Performing Arts. She was immediately taken with the practice and has since traveled to India three times to train with Pankaj Sharma and most recently Surrinder Singh on the banks of the Ganges river in Rishikesh.
Lisa teaches from an Iyengar base and has developed her own flowing teaching style influenced by her physical theatre practice. She believes that the space that a regular Yoga practice can create is the key to well-being. She is the co-artistic director of local theatre company, Body in Space.
