HI, I’m Lisa…
When brother died, I died with him. That’s when I realized I was a phoenix.
Buried in a 20 year struggle with food and my weight, I was depressed, lonely, creatively starving, working a desk job I hated, and had no idea what I was doing with my life. Then my brother committed suicide and 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 relationship with food by simply kind to myself. 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 brother.
Now I coach people to be free from obsessions with food and fitness by guiding them to their own authority, their own worth. I teach meditation and yoga. I write. I share. I hope to inspire people 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.
