Lisa first stepped onto a yoga mat in 2009, and by 2010 completed her first 200 hour teacher training. Lisa has been teaching at Philly Power Yoga since 2010. Her desire to continue to grow both on and off her mat led to her complete 200 hour teacher training at DIG Yoga and to date she has completed over 400 hours of training. Through alignment, she challenges students to realize both their inner and outer strength. Her classes are creatively sequenced, challenging and heartfelt. Originally from Miami, Lisa now resides in Philadelphia. When not on her mat, she can be found either running, spinning or getting together with her friends and family.

Hot Vinyasa Yoga (Vigorous Flow)
Hot Vinyasa Yoga (Vigorous Flow) is a high energy, vigorous vinyasa (meaning, relatively fast-paced and one breath per movement for a portion of the class) flow, targeting core and over all strength building. Our vigorous class will stretch, flex and work your entire body. Arm balances and inversions may be offered, along with modifications appropriate for beginners. Expect to move & sweat!
This challenging total body workout is set to energizing music and designed to give you all the benefits of our traditional vigorous vinyasa flow together with additional strength exercises from the pilates and functional fitness modalities. We will use our own body weight as resistance to help increase your heart rate, build bone density, and still leave you feeling calm, refreshed and rejuvenated.
