Lisa Mello, Founder

Lisa came to yoga with a background in teaching. She earned a Masters degree in Education from New York University and has taught preschool for a number of years. She received her 200 hr. certificate from CorePower Yoga in 2007 and served as a  manager/mentor for several years with the company. She received training for children's yoga at Karma Kids in New York City and introduced yoga into her preschool program. Lisa first started taking yoga classes for exercise, but it has become more. She found that yoga not only gave her an inner calmness, but also improved her physical condition. Lisa firmly believes that yoga can be for everybody and every body. Lisa's Vinyasa classes incorporate a perfect balance between strength and surrender. Her classes emphasize innovative sequencing, soul-stirring music and practical spirituality.  Her kids yoga classes combine yoga poses with engaging songs and stories that increase flexibility, motor skills and more. Breathing exercises, guided imagery and relaxation techniques are all explored during the class.  Now that Lisa is a mother of two small children the importance of establishing a healthy and fun lifestyle for adults and children is a central focus that she wants to share with the world.
