HI, I’m Lisa…
Self-Love / Mindfulness /
I was in the depths of an eating disorder that had escalated over nearly 20 years. I was depressed, lonely, creatively starving, working a desk job I hated, and I had no idea what I was doing with my life. Then a family tragedy led me to leave all that behind and learn how to love myself for real. Everything changed.
I went to Southeast Asia where I allowed myself to grieve: to cry, to scream, to dance, to pray. When I was ready, I came back to the US to become a yoga teacher. Over the next year, I healed my eating disorder. I found the joy of being alive, the joy of being in a healthy body that moves freely. I learned to forgive myself for my past, for the ways in which I thought I wasn't good enough, and for the ways in which I couldn't save my little brother.
Now I support people in healing from compulsive eating, negative body image, anxiety, and self-loathing. I teach meditation and yoga. I write. I share. I hope to inspire others to thrive. No matter where we are and what we've been through, we always have the choice to be the best version of our unique and beautiful selves. It's a choice we get to make in each and every moment.
