staff highlight: Lisa (and happy bday)!

Today’s blog post is all about the beautiful yogini, and one of our front desk goddesses, Lisa… and it’s her birthday today too!!! Happy Birthday Lisa!!! :)

Lisa and our work exchange yoginis run this place.  I really don’t know what I would do without them.  You don’t realize what goes into the daily operations of extendYoga until you are behind the desk and behind the scenes– just ask Lisa!

She’s not only a yogi, animal and farm fresh food lover, but there’s more!  Check it out…

  • Tell me a little bit about yourself (something we might not know).

Italy, Spain, Ireland, Germany, France, Portugal, England, Wales, Egypt, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Costa Rica, Canada and various US states
Happening 2014: India, Brazil, Belize, Honduras

  • What’s one of your favorite yoga poses and why?
Any given day can bring on a favorite pose.  I really love reverse warrior as is reverses everything a desk job does to my body!  Here’s a picture is a reverse warrior shadow in an ancient ruin in Egypt.

  • What is your favorite part about working at extendYoga and about yoga in general?
I love all of the yogis that I have had the honor of meeting over the years.  Many thanks to Arlet for allowing me to do my own Yoga Teacher Training observations at extendYoga and to introducing me to the community!
  • Other than yoga, what are your passions/favorites?
Organic farming!  I was the Assistant Manager of an organic farm and still work one of their farmer’s markets.  I love growing food and then providing it to the community to enjoy.  Also love the great outdoors with my husband and two German Shepherds.
  • What’s on your iPod?

Everything – Janis Joplin, Rusted Root, Pink Floyd, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Snatam Kaur, Willie Nelson, Red house Painters… You name it, I probably listen to it.  Music is integral to every part of my life.
