"Everything you really need to know is in your own heart"
Judith Hanson Lasater
"I first attended classes with Lisa back in November, my first experience of yoga, I was apprehensive as I struggle with depression. I was made very welcome and Lisa is fab!!, so much so I have continued to attend Monday evening classes, so give it a try."

I started The Yoga Social in 2017 with the aim of creating warm friendly yoga classes in my local community.
I wanted a space that everyone would feel welcome and focussed on small class sizes in order to offer a more tailored approach to my teaching.
During this time its been amazing how we have adapted to classes on-line, keeping that sense of community and connection and continued to grow and share our practise and space together.
The philosphy at The Yoga Social is that anyone and any-body can do yoga no matter what age, size, race, gender, or bendiness you are and we believe that yoga is a life skill that everyone should have access to.
I've practiced Yoga for over 20 years and found it hugely beneficial in my everyday life. Previously working in a highly stressful career I found Yoga to be my sanctuary.
I started my teacher training in 2016 and haven't looked back and now teach full time.
I'm a qualified Yoga & Meditation Teacher, my practice is rooted in Hatha Yoga and I am also trained in Yin & Restorative, Perinatal and Kids & Family Yoga.
I bring all of these learnings together to craft classes for all levels and all bodies!
Sharing the benefits of yoga is something I feel passionate about and as well as my weekly classes I offer individual and group private sessions and also work with local community groups
In 2021 I undertook a 580 Hour Yoga Therapy Diploma with The Minded Institute in London. In November 2023 I recieved my final diploma certificate after completeing my dissertation and final case studies recieving top marks.
The whole course has had a profound effect on the way I teach and really opened up my heart & mind even further to the possibilites, healing and insight that yoga can bring to the individual.
I will be taking on new clients in 2024, so do get in touch if you want to explore the opportunity of working with me through Yoga Therapy.
I am a registered teacher with Yoga Scotland and Yoga Alliance International
And a registered Yoga Therapist with BCYT and NCIP
