Lisa Rischitelli

COS Teacher Director, E-RYT 500, Certified Hot Asana Assist, Hot Asana Yoga University Faculty, YACEP

After years of training in classical ballet and modern dance, Lisa first tried yoga in the hopes of finding a workout which balanced both strength and flexibility. She became hooked when she realized that she had also discovered a community which found beauty in so-called imperfections and encouraged compassion for others and oneself—plus yoga still kicked her butt on a regular basis.

Lisa completed her 200-hour certification with YogaWorks in New York in 2010 and her 500-hour certification with Grace Morales in North Carolina in 2014. She is registered with Yoga Alliance, with more than 1,000 teaching hours. Lisa’s classes emphasize alignment, playfulness, and inclusiveness. With a deep understanding of the body, Lisa gives students the opportunity to make the most out of their practice through accessible sequencing and concise cues.

When not on the mat, Lisa enjoys cooking vegetarian food, sharing a bottle of wine with friends, snuggling with her two cats and three dogs.

Liza Anderson

"Yoga is not for the flexible; it is for the willing." - Unknown

As a child growing up in North Carolina I spent my afternoons and summers living the sedentary/antisocial life. I didn't participate in any sports and preferred the indoors to out. As an adult I didn't like working out at the gym but I didn't have the motivation to work out at home and I struggled with depression and anxiety. My yoga journey began in 2010. The physical benefits aside, I felt focused, confident, and motivated. I became friends with my body, after years of not feeling strong enough, fast enough, good enough. I am now willing to keep my mind and heart open to all possibilities. In an effort to inspire the willing I attended Hot Asana Yoga University in March 2015 and under the great tutelage of Virginia Gallagher and Lisa Rischitelli earned my 200 hour teacher training certificate. Since then I have attended workshops with Kathryn Budig, Rolf Gates, Bryan Kest, Dice Iida-Klein, and Grace Morales. In my classes I encourage and challenge all levels through creative sequencing and safe alignment. Ultimately, my desire as a yoga teacher is for you to walk off your mat aware of your power, potential, and progress.

Sarah Martin

CYT 200

Yoga has played a consistent role in Sarah's life for the past ten years. After a few years of practicing, she realized yoga had helped slow down her mind so that she could focus on what she was doing, especially in her school studies. The practice became a strong complement to her spiritual life in a way that brought physicality to her spiritual growth.

She has had the opportunity to teach yoga in several unique settings, including the university campus she attended and a drug and alcohol treatment facility. This practice changes lives, builds community, and facilitates the type of growth our planet desperately needs. She teaches with an underlying message of connectivity. As we come to recognize our lives are not composed of little, unrelated moments but rather a tapestry of connection, we can step in the direction of taking radical accountability and empowering ourselves to live the lives we want.

Julie Myers

CYT 500, Certified Hot Asana Assist

Julie completed her first yoga training in 2012, but she feels she has been studying yoga her whole life. She has always found movement to be a nurturing, powerful force in her life. Always up for a new experience, she went to her first yoga class on a whim and fell in love with the expansive feeling that asana practice gave her. The encouraging and nurturing community that yoga creates has inspired her to grow and expand in ways she never imagined. It is this experience she hopes to share with her students. She aims to inspire students to deepen their practice and realize their potential through all yoga has to offer.

Julie trained with Siva Power Yoga in Wichita, KS where she earned her 200 hour certification and has continued her education through Corepower Yoga. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science at Wichita State University and Associates Degree in Physical Therapy from Kansas City Kansas Community College. She has been working in the field of health and fitness for 10 years with experience in personal and group training, yoga, athletic performance, and rehabilitation.
