So you've completed your 200 hour (or more), you're passionate, and you've started teaching--but feeling a bit lost or overwhelmed with the business side of studios and yoga? Whether teaching yoga is your primary income or simply a meaningful addition, get tips on how to market yourself through professional photos, website, and social media; learn how to avoid burnout and make healthy choices for both your well-being and your career; and delve into ways to build classes and become known in your community, all while being true to yourself and the 8 Limb Path. Explore best practices based on Lisa's 10+ years of experience of teaching yoga sustainably as an independent contractor around the country. E-manual provided.
Hours can be used towards a 300 hour certificate through Hot Asana Yoga University or towards Yoga Alliance continuing education requirements.

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.
