Lisa Willis While training for a marathon in 2010, Lisa was involved in a car accident that left her with chronic neck and shoulder pain. After months of doctors, and chiropractic visits, she was still feeling the lingering negative effects of the trauma. She chose to explore alternative treatments and turned to Yoga. What began as a way to manage her pain, quickly blossomed into a regular practice. Over a 6 month period, Lisa bewgan to notice that not only her physical strength increased but her pain was reduced; Bonus was the grounding and purposeful experience that Yoga turned out to be.
After 8 months of a rigorous practice, Lisa was introduced to Ashtanga. She found it to be extremely beneficial and an inspiration to delve deeper through a teacher training. She earned her 200 hour certificate to teach Yoga under the guidance of Cheryl Oliver and Julie Boyd in Dallas.
