about lisa

I’m Lisa van Leeuwen, owner of Do Yoga with Lisa.  I didn’t always love yoga, in fact, it’s interesting to see the phases of my practice over the years.  From nonexistent to fitness-focused to where I am now – teaching yoga for women!

What started as an individual journey of self-improvement has turned into a journey of sisterhood, self-acceptance & embracing parts of myself I hid away from the world for years. 

The mat has been a place for me to work through anxiety, pelvic pain, heartache, anger, stress & more. It has helped me find the healing power within myself and it’s the reason I keep showing up on the mat. 

It’s the reason I am sharing this practice with YOU today!

As I continue to heal, I hope to help women feel more comfortable with the physical postures of yoga so that they can tap into the deeper benefits of this practice & find their healing within.
