Meet Lisa

Meet Lisa

I’m Lisa and I’m a bilingual yoga teacher based in Mareuil en Périgord, Dordogne.  With over 10 years of teaching experience, I am committed to helping my students find peace and serenity, whilst keeping fit and healthy.

I became interested in yoga as a teenager after reading the book “Forever Young” by Indra Devi (who lived until the ripe old age of 102).  Time spent in India further deepened my love of this ancient tradition and wherever I have lived or travelled I have practised yoga in some form or another.

Qualified Yoga Teacher with Yoga London (RYT500) which includes 200 hrs basic training, 100 hrs anatomy, 100 hrs philosophy, 100 hrs apprentice module.

What to expect from Yoga

Classes are non competitive and non judging as I believe yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, race, size or ability etc.  No fancy poses just take it at your own pace – this is possible as I offer variations to the postures as there is no “one size fits all approach” to my yoga style.

Candles, eye pillows and the occasional use of incense and aromatherapy oils all help to aid relaxation at the end.  Playlists also add to the ambience and assist students in switching off an overactive mind.

So come along and try a class – I promise that you will be in safe hands and there really is no time like the present.

People of all ages, levels of fitness and walks of life can enjoy yoga. 

So whether you are beginning or continuing your yoga journey, do so with an open mind, allow change to happen and enjoy the many wonderful benefits of this ancient tradition.

"I've been taking Lisa's yoga classes regularly for a year and a half now... the only yoga practise I've ever been to regularly! Lovely group and great atmosphere in class. Lisa brings good variety into the sessions and I always come away feeling calm and strong. Highly recommend Lisa's yoga!"


Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to bring anything?
Yoga mat

Mats and blocks (for sitting) will be provided but it is advisable to buy your own mat, simply for your own personal practise which I would recommend.   Even 10 minutes a day on your mat will make all the difference to your weekly practise - just think of it as a bit of “you time”. 

What to wear?

Comfort is the main thing here so wear something non-restrictive - no fancy clothing is required.  Layers would be good as we can work up a bit of a sweat and it’s always nice to have something to put on at the end for the final relaxation.

What about injuries?

Injuries can be aided with yoga classes and I myself have found relief from lower back problems and more recently a frozen shoulder through my regular yoga practise.  Our bodies can benefit from gentle asanas (postures) and relaxation from yoga will benefit all parts of our body and mind.  Modifications can be made so that we can work with our injuries

Do I need to be flexible / fit?

Definitely not.  Classes are for all levels/stages of fitness as I always offer modifications or variations of the asanas.  Everyone has to start somewhere and with regular practise you will find your body change in many positive ways.    Yoga is not just about stretching/toning the body but about gaining some relaxation for the mind too.

Preparation for yoga class

It is advised that you don’t eat anything heavy 3-4 hours before class so just have a light snack beforehand.   Other than that you are good to go.
