Welcome MBSR Practitioners

This website has been developed to share relevant information online, such as poetry, links, utubes and stress physiology. It would be wonderful if you could look at the appropriate page that corresponds with each week from  class. Feel free to be in touch with me during the 8 weeks together. I'm available to support you via email, text message or telephone, particularly if you are finding any of the home practices too challenging. It's always a good idea to let me know, so we can discuss the practice together. The course provides us with an 8 week exploration to open to our own experience and really get to know our mind states, body sensations and emotions. I'm really looking forward to sharing this time together and seeing how the practice becomes the teacher. 

Best wishes

Lisa is a Yoga and Meditation Teacher with more than 30 years of self practice and teaching experience, in educational, corporate, medical and organisational settings. She has been facilitating 8-week Mindfulness-based interventions since 2007, including MBSR, MB-Stillness Meditation and MB-Restorative Yoga.

Lisa feels Yoga is an embodied organic practice that explores the interconnectedness of movement and stillness, in the spirit of self-care. Her openhearted approach to teaching creates a warm inviting space to discover the joys of these mind-body practices.

Lisa is particularly interested in the effects of restorative yoga and its application in supporting wellness and reducing stress and anxiety. She teaches weekly yoga and meditation classes and has a private practice working therapeutically with adults and couples. This work includes 8-week interventions, individual self-practice, yoga mentoring and consulting. Lisa has trained in the applications of mindfulness in clinical settings, including MiCBT and Advanced Training in ACT.
