Lisa turned to yoga for help in managing stress during a particularly challenging time. She was so inspired by the space her practice created in her own life for personal and spiritual transformation, that she earned her RYT 200hr certification in 2014 from 305 Yoga in Miami. Lisa’s goal as a teacher is to help others access the freedom and potential she continues to discover in her own practice. She views each class as an opportunity to hold space for each student and to walk alongside them as they embark on their own journey of observation, connection to self, and acceptance through the integration of breath and movement.

Leslie’s discovery of yoga 15 years ago has helped her personally slow down, create balance, breathe deeper, gain strength and flexibility on and off the mat.

Sarah believes that yoga helps us access presence and strength, and in turn, recognize the subtle signals that our bodies and minds send to us, which usually go unheard. Slowing down and reconnecting with our breath is an important tool that allows us to take stock of how we are doing physically, mentally, and spiritually. This helps us to become our best selves, so we can be present in every situation. The process of moving with our breath leads to a calm that we carry off the mat.
Initially trained as a scientist, Sarah spent one year living in Bali and was introduced to the less physical side of yoga. That deeper practice led her to complete her 500 hr training at Radiantly Alive in Ubud. She brings with her a love Vinyasa and desire to share.
