Gillian & Lisa

13 May – 18 May 2019

Remember dancing in the rain? jumping in puddles? laughing, running free, without a care in the world? Before you judged yourself or were judged by others? Remember when you weren’t ashamed of who you were? Afraid of where life was taking you?

There was a time when you didn’t care what you looked like,…running  through the wet grass. You did it because it felt good… it felt like flying.

You just were…… messy. beautiful. uninhibited. perfect. you.

Where did you go?

A believer in following your dreams, this mother of three left a successful career as a documentary producer at the BBC in London to pursue a passion for yoga.

Keen to share the liberating effect this 15-year practice had on her life, Lisa became a certified yoga instructor and has been a well-loved teacher for 8 years now.

Her journey has taken her all over the world, most recently Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre in Spain where she is a yoga teacher trainer for Frog Lotus Yoga International.

Lisa’s heart-centered approach is a reflection of her radiant personality.  She brings a fresh and faithful eye to time-honored traditions and draws on the universal teachings of yoga, both on and off the mat. With an emphasis on the breath and intelligent flow sequencing, her classes are crafted to empower her students to develop their practice, and have a safe life-long yoga experience.



For this mother of three and dedicated teacher, yoga represents an intelligent system of harmonizing all of the dynamic layers of the human experience. Body. Spirit. Nature. Truth. the Universe.

“When you are able to find safety within yourself. When you no longer look to others for approval, permission, or for your identity. When you can stand fully in both your humility and your greatness.” – This is the life long journey that leads people back to yoga. Again and again we unfold ouselves, peel back the layers, open the blockages that plug us up with fear and indecision.

Yoga, for Gillian has become more like “kinesthetic awareness therapy”, leading people back to themselves, empowered, grounded, energized and awake.

Currently her classes are exploring the balance between yin and yang. Teaching a powerful, juicy, placement focused Vinyasa flow is one style she loves. But then she likes to utterly surrender to gravity in a deep, yummy yin/restorative class.

Both aim to investigate the multiple layers of each individual. By introducing a form of measurement which reveals habitual patterns, thoughts and imprinted experiences, there can be an energetic shift. A freedom that leads to peace, insight and an environment where the body can potentially self-heal.
