Your Yoga journey is an evolution, a revolution. A revolt against the status quo, the ego mind, the living blindly – or more specifically living in ignorance. We are not here to change ourselves, but rather to come back home. To come back to our Self. We are whole as we are already.
Your Yoga journey is to build knowledge. How it will imprint on you will be different than anyone else because this knowledge is fluid, it relies on our own experience in the world, in our hearts and in our minds. It is also impossible to go through this experience without changing because we are also fluid and vibrational.
These five training modules that make up the 200-hour program, are for anyone searching to deepen their Yoga practice and education. For those looking for an inspirational experience founded on authenticity. For those yearning to find community, acceptance and a deeper connection to SELF. With an emphasis on trauma-informed practices and practices to support our mental well-being, these training modules are for anyone searching for something different than is often offered in a westernized Yoga education.

Having done several trainings with you, you inspired me so much Lisa! I dreamed of being a trainer like you one day – articulate, thoughtful and thought-provoking, knowledgeable and personal at the same time. You know your stuff and have a unique perspective to offer. – Sarah B.
My favourite teacher, thank you Lisa for your creativity ,confidence and knowledge, as well as your high standards. It was an absolute pleasure to be taught by you. – Rosie H
Lisa’s workshops at canfitpro always led me to a deeper practice, and a more thoughtful one for my client base. Always engaging, knowledgeable , I still have all my notes. Now meeting her again through WIFA- I am thrilled to see the path she is on-filled with care and integrity. – Fyonna V.
Lisa has inspired me to Kickstart my journey as a yoga instructor. Her passion, resilience and insights continue to influence my journey as a trainer. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! – Connie D.
Lisa is the reason I can and love teaching yoga, coming all the way to NZ. She totally understood that we can teach in a range of environments including gyms and how that differs to more intense teaching styles. She instilled in me that yoga is for every-body and enabled me to bring yoga to hundreds. I even taught some classes while cruising to Antarctica, so please know your teaching has really reached the ends of the earth! – Felicity W.
I did my first ever yoga teacher training with Lisa and it began my lifelong journey with the practice. Lisa was an amazing teacher. Kind, gentle, knowledgeable and patient. I loved the way she taught our classes, and I have taken a lot of the way she taught into how I teach and still teach. She taught us how to teach in a trauma aware style from day one, so it just became the norm for the way I teach. A skill I have been thankful for every day. I cannot recommend her highly enough. If you are looking for an amazing teacher and experience, on your yoga journey, then please take the journey with Lisa. – Sue M. (Australia)
