With a background in Finance and Accountancy, Lisa discovered yoga in her early thirties and found it an essential counter-balance to a demanding career. In a complete career change in 2012, wishing to deepen her own personal practice, she undertook three years of yoga teacher training and qualified as a British Wheel of Yoga teacher. She then joined the Clear Mind Institute as an integrated Yoga Therapist and then as a Mindfulness Teacher, after being trained in school projects to offer foundations in mindfulness in the education system. More recently she has also completed training in TRE (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercise) and is currently part of a small but growing community of certified providers in the UK. Lisa’s teaching has been informed by training with highly respected teachers such as Jon Kabat-Zinn, Saki Santoreli, Cathy-Mae Karelse and Donna Farhi and she continues to deepen her own mindfulness and yoga practice through daily meditation, yoga, TRE, attending retreats, participating in CPD training and regular teaching of classes, courses and retreats.
