The outside world is a mere reflection of the inner world we create. Individually and as a collective. Our work is to make our inner worlds more beautiful, healthy and free. It begins with you and me.
What lights me up is connecting with others who are devoted to their own personal transformation and spiritual evolution. What inspires me is to surround myself with artists, visionaries, and collaborators who want to co-create a NEW paradigm – one that prioritizes connection, support, community, generosity, and creative expression.
My mission is not only to inspire others towards that inner work, but to give them tools to begin that beautiful blossoming – today. I specialize in embodiment. I am a dancer, performer and teacher — but my true gift is in the ability to create a sacred and safe space for people to engage their body, move in love, release tension and toxicity, and dance with JOY.
I have trained extensively in West African Dance and Drum, Odissi Classical Dance as well as various yoga styles; and have studied Belly Dance, Tribal Fusion, Brazilian Contemporary, Afro Brazilian, Samba, and have been a singer since I was performing in my church children’s choir on Sundays. Music lives and moves inside me. Rhythm comes naturally, and connects me to the heartbeat of existence.
Through dance, breath, meditation, and chanting, we engage the brain and body and access parts of ourselves ready to be awakened and set free. I invite you to join me on this journey towards greater vitality and joy-filled living! I support you as you step further into the truth of who you are.
DANCE & YOGA – Embodiment
An ardent dancer of many forms for decades, Lisa travels regularly to India to imbibe the richness of the Motherland. She is a devoted Odissi Classical Indian dance student of Shakti School of Dance with Colleena Shakti and the creator of an unique style of Indian fusion. She is a prolific teacher and choreographer and a dynamic performer who travels the world to study, teach, and be a bridge for East and West.
Lisa is also a practitioner of Vinyasa Krama Yoga and has studied Hatha, Yin and Ashtanga Yoga styles over the past decade. She has studied extensively with Colleena Shakti and student teaches VKY for Shakti School of Dance and Shakti Summer School.
TRAVEL – Expansion. Connection. Compassion.
Lisa takes women to North India (Rajasthan, Rishikesh, and Amritsar) with her amazing tour partner, Kathy Hayden, to visit temples, forts, palaces, experience camel tours, pujas and other spiritual rituals and programs, as well as traditional dance and music performances; and to Greece with her other amazing tour partner, Elina Kikili, to experience the healing Mediterranean sea and climate, visit temples, ruins, swim, eat nourishing foods, and so much more!
Traveling on one of Lisa’s group tours is unique in important ways. Each group is limited to 10 women so that deeper connections and lifelong friendships can be made. The tours focus on a limited number of stops so that there is more time spent in each city or town and there is less rushing around and moving from place to place. Each day during the tours includes hours of free time, so that participants are able to freely explore or simply rest and have down time.
Lisa found her unique style and fashion sense in India. It is a great joy and passion to discover, curate and design unique one-of-a-kind items for women who value elegance, femininity, softness and vibrant colors.
Upcycled and repurposed clothing, hand embroidered bags, essential oils, silver jewelry are her passions. Lisa carefully selects hand crafted (i.e. embroidered, block print, indigo) items that people can enjoy for years.
