Lisa Rischitelli

Teacher Director, E-RYT 200, E-RYT 500, Certified Hot Asana Assist, Hot Asana Yoga University Faculty

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.

Angela Hsu

Teacher Director, E-RYT 200, RYT500, Hot Asana Yoga University Faculty, Certified Hot Asana Assist, Reiki Master

Angela began practicing yoga just as a means to increase her flexibility. She had taken up skydiving and gravitated toward the discipline of freestyle, which is like dancing and acrobatics in the sky. However, many years of competitive swimming had slowly tightened everything up. She knew immediately that increasing her flexibility would assist greatly in achieving her skydiving goals. However, yoga quickly became much more than that. In addition to the physicality of yoga - the mental and spiritual benefits came to light - and it has since become an integral part of not just her skydiving career, but as a result, her entire life.

If you asked me a few years ago, if I could ever see myself teaching yoga, I would’ve said no. I feel like a perpetual student, there is always still so much to learn. So how could I be a teacher? But since graduating from Yax Yoga Concepts 200hr Vinyasa and Hot Yoga Teacher Training in 2011, Angela has gone on to be a featured yogi in the documentary Why We Breathe, is a Lululemon Ambassador, and was also featured in ORIGIN Magazine as part of their “Women who eat impossible for breakfast” series.

She is currently pursuing her 500hr certification through Yoga Medicine with Tiffany Cruikshank - already completing specialty training in the areas of Chinese Medicine, Myofascial Release, Spine, Yin, and Meditation. Angela is also a certified Reiki Master. As a result, her teaching style is a unique combination of all her skills and education. She offers a wide range of classes accessible to everyone - from very challenging and dynamic, to healing and meditative - regardless if it’s your first yoga class or you’ve been practicing for years.
