Hi, I'm Lisa

 

Founder and Main teacher at Sole 2 Soul Yoga. I'm a mum of  2 amazing girls (with 20 years age gap!)  one grandson and full time yoga teacher.  You'll find my style inclusive, fun loving and accessible although I will always challenge you to your fullest potential!

I'm now in my 50's and fitter, healthier and calmer than ever and I put it down to yoga.  I am passionate about passing on my enthusiasm and love for yoga - with the many benefits it brings to mind, body and soul. The ancient techniques and philosophy are part of every session and can transform your life.

I have been practicing yoga since 2000 and teaching since 2013 and enjoy teaching many forms of yoga including physical postures (asana) pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. I am a constant student of the ancient texts, sanskrit, anatomy and everything yoga!

About Yoga

Yoga originated in India thousands of years ago. Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘yuj’ which literally means to integrate or unite. Yoga is said to be the union of the individual consciousness and universal consciousness and the practices laid down in the ancient texts give us to tools to find this union with our highest self

 

Regular practice of Yoga will build a strong, toned and supple body, improve sleep and fitness, balance and posture and cultivate a calm and focused mind. Lisa's yoga classes are inclusive and light hearted and always contain physical moves tailored to the style and ability of the students, breath work or pranayama to help energise and relax the body and relaxation /meditation to calm and clear the mind.

 

Yoga is for everyone! No body too stiff, no mind too cluttered... start with a single step on this wonderful journey to well-being. Whether you want to relax and stretch or stand on your head! All are aspects of the yoga practice.

Vicky London

Yoga came to me at the right time after experiencing some mental health issues and found that yoga was a safe space where I could be present, clear my mind, breathe and connect with my true self.  I also play crystal bowls and gong and describe my style as lighthearted and spiritual.  I constantly  continue to grow on the path to yoga 🙏

Amanda Bunton

Amanda completed her Teacher Training in the heart of the jungle in the mountains of stunning Sri Lanka... surrounded by nature and wildlife, which has inspired her to take yoga outside whenever possible.

 

Whether that's to the beach (on our retreats), or any outside  space... breathing in the fresh air and relaxing to sounds  of  nature  (or the ocean),  practicing  yoga outside really enhances your yoga practice and calms the mind.

Michelle Dunn 

Many of you know Michelle as Lisa's usual fab cover teacher but an experienced yogi who was actually one of Lisa's teachers - thats how we met! She loves Acro and her flow classes are accessible and fun 

Student love...

I met Lisa in 2017 and was a total beginner to yoga but love sport in general and know as I’m ageing I need to keep fit flexible and stretch, I did a weekly one to one session to begin but since Covid I’ve enrolled to the online streaming classes which are great. I run my own business and look after my mom too so these session are invaluable to stay fit in with my busy schedule. Friday morning are relaxed and yin style very relaxing and stretchy - Monday’s are more get up and go workout but get you going for the week ahead. The online streaming is very convenient and suits my current lifestyle and can re-stream later that day or week if life is so busy . Yoga with Lisa is a lifeline to keep claim and have some of my own me time and escapism. Highly recommend the online or live streaming classes
