Liss, Sis

Who inspires you:

My parents and my husband, they are models of authenticity.

What can’t you live without?

My girlfriends, they are simply the best.

Favorite yoga pose and why?

Handstand and forearm balance…they require years of practice and patience, and are both excellent “teachers”.

Words to live by:

Love people for who they are, not whether or not they are meeting your expectations.

Best advice you have ever received:

From a former boss, “People will not care how much you know, but they will know how much you care.”

I’ve never forgotten the moment in yoga when…

The first night of my teacher training with Tami, I felt an overwhelming sense that I had found home and the joy that went with it!

Yoga pairs well well with:

Being the mother of three boys, including two with special needs.
