LISA SCHRAKAMP

In 2009, I had a six week break from ballet classes and was looking for a way to fill that void and stay in shape, so I decided to try yoga. I never expected to stick with it after those six weeks, but I was hooked!

In yoga, I found the mind/body/spirit connection to be the best form of self care I could practice. It fit perfectly into my world of wife, mom, school counselor and dancer. On more than one occasion, my kids or husband would “suggest” I go take a yoga class and I couldn’t agree more. Obviously, my yoga practice benefited the whole family.

I am a consummate learner. I work in education, have two masters degrees and love learning, so pursuing yoga teacher training was a natural progression of my yoga practice. Teacher training helped me grow not only as a yogi, but as a person. Melding the understanding of the practice on a cognitive level with the physical practice on the mat has taught me that yoga is so much more than touching your toes.
