Owner & Founder of Zenergi Hot Yoga in Iowa City, Lisa has been instructing since 2006.
A lifelong advocate of health, well being and continuous education, Lisa began practicing yoga almost 12 years ago to compliment her strength and marathon training. Fitness has always been a part of Lisa’s life. A former competitive body builder, she pursed her education at Arizona State University and the College of DuPage, completing a degree in liberal arts.
Based in Denver & working for United Airlines for 15 years, Lisa was afforded the opportunity to see the world and the freedom to pursue her competitive athletic interest. It was in Denver where her passion for yoga began.
On her mat is where Lisa discovered acceptance and the ability to release self judgment. As her yoga interest grew she pursued teaching, learning the Jimmy Barkan Hot Yoga Method completing Levels I & II teacher training in 2006. With a strong desire to continue her study of yoga and bring a more physical dimension into her instruction, she completed Baron Baptiste Power Vinyasa teacher training Levels One and Two Training in 2008.
In the summer of 2010 Lisa received her Baptiste Power Vinyasa certification. It is with this acquired knowledge that Lisa shares her learning at her own studio in Iowa City.
