Eric & Lisa of the Vegans. Vegans make more sense now, them being yoga instructors.
From your links:
I'm inspired by your interest and commitment in this path of integration, self awareness and self acceptance, that is yoga. As I have learned, the practice of yoga is about "coming together". The coming together of ourselves, that leads to the coming together of our family, friends, communities, country and - yes - even the world. Therefore, you're not alone on this path, we are growing together!
For me, this journey of greater self awareness and self acceptance started thirty days before my eighteenth birthday. I was a prisoner of fear, which lead to a six year drug addiction. Now with over eighteen years of sobriety, my life has changed a great deal and the practice of yoga (the spreading of love) is at the heart of these changes.
My aim as a teacher is for you to "awaken". That is to bring light to those places of darkness, to bring strength to those places of weakness, to bring fluidity and creativity to those places of rigidity, to bring laughter to those places that have a frown, and to bring life to the places that for some of us have lay dormant for a life time.
Now that may sound ambitious - especially for those of you that are just looking for that "yoga butt" - however, all of the above are taught by using the simple technique of breath and movement, breath and sensation, that will lead to transformation.
The liberation I feel (at least on a good day) comes from the understanding that the titles I hold are not me, they do not make me, nor do they define me. They are only a tiny material expression of the limitless, boundless, blissful, immortal self
that is me, and you.
Live your dreams, and spread the love
Super Duper Namaste,
Life is just so grand no matter what youve got going on
Oh the possibilities!
Hi everyone, I am Lisa Paskel and I am truly grateful that you have taken the time to check in. I am fortunate to be working as a facilitator on the healing path for over 15 years. Through my own yoga and life experiences, I have created a style of teaching and work whose entire premises is based on the idea of letting go, shedding unwanted baggage, tearing down walls, forgiveness, compassion and love- I call this philosophy, Getting Present. Through the years I have been blessed to travel around the world leading people of all ages in yoga classes, workshops (I specialize in Goddess workshops), and healing journeys in nature. It is my desire to create a space that is challenging, safe, nurturing and loving. I have recently taken on leading yoga retreats with my husband Eric in beautiful places like Costa Rica. I have also helped to facilitate and teach our wonderful teachers through our Sanga Yoga Teacher Trainings. Sanga Yoga is about community and love. I feel we can continue to create this together- come practice! NAMASTE
