Lisa Boland Elliott, RYT 500, happily rejoins the center yoga community. A student of Hatha yoga since 2003, Lisa led weekly yoga classes at the center from 2006 until she moved to Maryland in 2009. Lisa leads her classes with thoughtful attention to alignment and will often suggest props to modify or deepen a pose. She guides yoga from her own personal experiences in asana and meditation relieving emotional, physical, and mental tension. She understands the practice can be deeply personal and also a gift to share with others.
Lisa is certified in Body Balance Yoga and studied with the founder and director, Jenny Otto, from 2010 to 2015. She is a certified Child Light Yoga instructor and finds immense joy in weaving songs and storytelling into an asana practice.
Lisa previously taught yoga at Body Balance Yoga School, Willow Street Yoga, Eastern Village Cohousing and LAMB Charter School. A life long lover of parks and shared green spaces she enjoys practicing Vrksasana on a tree root as much as on her mat. Lisa recently moved back to Harrisonburg with her husband and two year old son.
