Lisa Rizzo completed her 200 hour Live In Discovery Teacher Training Program in March 2018. In October 2018 she completed Reiki for the Rest of Us Training.
Born and raised in Wayne, NJ, Lisa moved around the US after college before landing in Burlington, NC, to work as a Senior Product Manager. When she isn’t working and practicing yoga, she spends time with her husband, two stepsons and beloved cats and dogs. She also fosters kittens for Sparkle Cat Rescue.
In 2009, Lisa ruptured the lowest disk in her back requiring surgery and a long recovery time. In 2016, the back pain returned, so Lisa began taking yoga classes to help alleviate the pain. To date she has not had to have any additional surgery. She believes that yoga has truly helped improve her health and well being. After becoming hooked, her husband joined her in yoga practice and they have not looked back. She believes that yoga is for everyBODY and is committed to sharing her love of the practice with her students.
