Lisa Loring

Lisa has been practicing and studying yoga in its many forms for 25 years. She is proud to have earned certifications in a variety of traditional and adaptive yoga practices in order to touch as many people as possible of all ages and abilities. She has taught students while owning her own studio in New Hampshire, she has had the great fortune to teach groups in Austin, Texas, and has taught extensively in the Washington, DC Metro area including work with the Special Olympics, NASA, the
National Institutes for Health, and Capitol Hill Village (a non-profit organization providing services for Seniors).

Throughout my life, yoga has been my constant. I certainly did not start practicing
yoga with the intention, notion or even remotest idea that I would become a teacher, but over time
that is where my practice led. When I began, no one I knew practiced yoga and I did not actually realize what I was doing. This is a fairly familiar story – being drawn to a discipline in order to connect within oneself as a way to focus, hear your own still and quiet voice, when there are so many other distractions. Personally, this drive to connect and go deeper, to peel back the layers by breathing and working out the kinks of life through the physical body, continues to be my goal. Bringing you more into this same realm of feeling into your body is my goal for you – to help get you connected, plugged into your body and your life.
