About Lisa Jang, E-RYT, YACEP, AFAA
Lisa has been teaching group fitness and yoga for over a decade. She acquired her Primary Group Fitness Certification in 2001 through AFAA and started her yoga studies by enrolling through Beth Shaw’s YogaFit System, but discovered she wanted to finish her yoga studies at a local yoga studio. Determined to do that, Lisa completed her studies with a RYT certified school through the Yoga Alliance and trained in the Hatha Vinyasa style under the mentorship and guidance of Noell Clark and Angie Poon. Lisa also trained under Kathryn Budig in arm balancing, inversions and transitions. She also was blessed to further her studies with Clara Roberts-Oss in Vinyasa. Lisa is a Les Mills Certified Instructor and teaches BodyFlow®.
While practicing and teaching yang style yoga, Lisa stumbled upon Yin Yoga in 2010. She found the Yin practice challenging her patience, her ability to find her own edges in poses and emotionally provoking. Lisa was also intrigued about the connection of Yin and the Chinese Meridians. She wanted to learn more about Yin and share it. She studied and completed an in-depth immersion studies program with renowned Canadian Yin Yoga Teacher, Bernie Clark at Semperviva Yoga (Vancouver, CANADA). In addition, Lisa has completed teacher training in functional anatomy with Yin Masters, Paul and Suzee Grilley.
Lisa is always seeking to continue her education to serve her students. She completed over 80 hours of Acupressure training at McKinnon Body Institute (Oakland, CA) .
She is forever grateful to have had trained with such wonderful teachers.
What can you get in Lisa’s yoga classes? Lisa’s vinyasa classes are strong, athletic, uplifting and playful. On the opposite side of the spectrum, her Yin classes are more passive with an emphasis of educating her students understanding their own ranges and edges. Both styles of classes draw a keen focus on creating a warm environment to ensure her students cultivate an optimum practice for themselves.
