Lisa first became a regular practitioner to sustain her body and mind while doing the challenging work of being a clinical and health psychologist, and trainer of psychologists, in an urban hospital.
Lisa’s practice transformed in 2001 when she met her teachers, Yogarupa Rod Stryker and Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, and she was initiated into Para Yoga and the Sri Vidya tradition of the Himalayan Institute.
Lisa undertook training in Yoga Therapy with Gary Kraftsow in the American Viniyoga tradition. Lisa now serves as a board member, tutor, mentor, and supervisor on the Yoga Campus Yoga Therapy Diploma course. Lisa directs the Yoga Therapy Clinic at the Life Centre in Islington, a one-of-a-kind therapy center in London that provides training for the yoga therapy students and low cost yoga therapy for the community. Lisa provides private yoga therapy at The Life Centres in Islington and Notting Hill, and in Greenwich.
The [ancient] yogis learned that it was easier to voluntarily move the body and breath than it is to change and regulate the mind, so the body was consciously used to affect the mind. As anyone who has practiced yoga knows, it works.
