Lisa has been teaching classes for the Mind & Body since 2008, and has well over 1600 hours of hands-on teaching experience. She has explored and trained in varying styles of Yoga, but prefers not to identify her teaching with any one style. If she had to label it, it would be Wellness Yoga. Most everyone can practice Yoga to enhance their lifestyle.
Lisa currently offers Private/Semi-Private sessions, Workshops and Group classes in; Yoga Fundamentals, Classical Yoga, Intro to Vinyasa, Slow Flow, Power Flow, Restorative Yoga, Gentle Yoga and Pilates-Yoga fusion. Pranayama and Meditation are also offered separately or integrated for your complete yoga practice.
Lisa is a Certified Teacher in several yogic disciplines, and is an Experienced Registered Teacher with the Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour & 500-hour levels in both Classical Yoga and Vinyasa. Amongst her other teaching credentials, she was granted the title of Yoga Acharya (Master of Yoga) upon graduating from a lengthy and intensive training session in classical yoga at the Sivananda Yoga Vendanta Centre.
If you aren't familiar with yoga accreditation, a 200 hour certification could be thought of as the equivalent of an Associate’s Degree in Yoga Studies, and a 500 hour certification a Bachelors Degree.
Lisa Matta, E-RYT, has been a practitioner of Yoga for more than 18 years.
Lisa's teaching style is influenced by her earliest practices in the Iyengar and Anusara methods, both of which are mindful of body alignment. She strives to continually increase her own personal knowledge of yogic principles and techniques, as well as anatomy and physiology as it relates to yoga. You can also be sure that Core strength awareness is integrated into her classes from her many years of Pilates practice.
