Lisa Tendler

Lisa has been practicing yoga since the late 80’s, studying with the founders of Jivamukti yoga in NYC,, as well as Iyengar teachers, therapeutics practices,  Yin practitioners, and Ashtanga teachers in India, such as founder Pattabi Jois.   Being a long time yoga practitioner she has come to love and value meditation as one of the most important aspects of practice, because when meditation and breath merge with yoga postures and life….this is when true awakening begins! The simplicity to inhale and exhale and be present for all that is now and for all that is coming.!
