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 hatha yoga including physical postures (asana) pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. I am a constant student of the ancient texts, sanskrit, anatomy and everything yoga!

I am also a qualified pregnancy, special needs, children's and baby yoga teacher. I am fully insured and DBS

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 🙏

I met Lisa about 3 years ago 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 and fit fir 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


Stretch, relax,
restore  

A slow restorative, stretchy and opening  class for those who like their yoga a little more mellow... a combination of restorative, yin and classic hatha yoga poses and stretches. Great for those with injuries or older people or those who just like it more relaxed..

flow and Slow Flow  

An energising class linking movement to the breath  building strength, suppleness and relaxing the mind. Focused Flow looks at one (sometimes tricky) posture in the class so building  technique to have a go or not!

Flow and Focused Flow 

are more energetic than Slow Flow  which is suitable for all levels  

sivananda yoga

A traditional form of yoga with breathwork, meditation, chanting and postures. Lots of rest between poses in this style of yoga.

Some challenges and sun salutations 

Pilates 

Pilates is a full body workout which concentrates on strengthening deep skeletal muscles with a particular focus on core stability and strength.

  

Pilates will improve your posture, strength, flexibility, balance and body awareness

Yoga Nidra 

Yoga Nidra or Yogic Sleep is a longer progressive relaxation using guided imagery to help you go into a deep lucid state where you are fully relaxed yet awake. A healing and transforming practice where we build positive affirmations and body relaxation  

Yin yoga 

Yin Yoga is a very restorative type of yoga. We hold floor based poses for up to 5 minutes in a supported and relaxed way using props It's extremely relaxing and mediative so helps us slow down. A different approach to opening the body and relaxing the mind. 

Weekend Wind Down 

Ease yourself into the weekend with  super chilled end to the working week with a few all level yin stretches, lots of deep breathing and a long guided meditation

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga is a challenging style of yoga that will very quickly build your strength and endurance. Our morning classes are accessible for all levels so you can start where you are but expect to move that body!
