“Offering the tools for personal transformation is truly what I love about this industry!”
Lisa has been a massage therapist since 2003, completing her program of studies in Intergarted Massage Therapy at the Atlanta School of Massage. Shortly after completing massage school, Lisa completed her 200 hour Yoga teacher’s certification in the Kripalu tradition. Her teacher, Christopher Baxter, was one of the founders of the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and the originator of the teachers training program. With the intention of offering yoga and its healing benefits as homework for her massage clients, Lisa quickly found that she also enjoyed the exchange of energy and seeing the progress and growth in her students in the class setting that came with teaching. Utilizing movement studies and body reading from yoga training and massage school, she is able to offer counteractions to chronic holding and repetitive usage stressors and tension in her clients’ bodies.
Lisa is a member of the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association and the Yoga Alliance. She is nationally certified through the National Board for Therapuetic Massage and Bodywork and a member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals. Lisa has been affiliated with Mandala since 2006 as a massage therapist, and was thrilled to join as Yoga Director in 2010.
Lisa is certified in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular therapy, Thai Massage, Sacred Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage and Reiki.
