For Lisa, yoga is more than a physical practice: it is the path to a peaceful, loving, relationship with one's Self. Lisa's work as a yoga teacher, teacher trainer, and body image warrior is based on her belief that we are all okay exactly as we are. Through years of exploring, customizing and adjusting the physical practice of yoga to suit her own larger body, Lisa developed Body Positivity Yoga - an approach to yoga that is truly accessible to all ages, sizes and levels of ability. Lisa is a registered Yoga Teacher, a community partner in the Yoga and Body Image Coalition and the creatress of Meet Yourself Where You Are - a course for those wanting to learn more about body acceptance, self-acceptance, self-care and personal empowerment on and off the yoga mat.
