We asked Lisa to answer 2 questions:

What am I passionate about?  I am passionate about healing healthcare and healing the healers. We do this by creating wellbeing, by learning to feel happy, grounded and joyful, regardless of the chaos surrounding our lives. I'm passionate about meaningful connections with people and witnessing personal growth and wellbeing. I love all aspects of my job from sharing joyful movement to music classes at Rise (Carpe Diem Dance and Street Clothes Stretch) to reflective vinyasa yoga to functional medicine and nutritional testing and coaching. We are all unique individuals with unique needs and challenges. My business is about helping individuals create custom plans to meet their health and wellbeing goals. I also love to do corporate presentations and programs utilizing my Wellness Inspired Network. I love to collaborate with exceptional practitioners for my own wellbeing and to develop references for my clients.  

 

What do I like about being at Rise? Community and connection is vital to our wellbeing. Being a solo practitioner, I can get stuck in my "geek mode" spending hours at my computer doing coaching and/ or research on behalf of my clients. It is so important for me to do daily exercise and my yoga practice, yet it can be a challenge to prioritize self care over work. Rise is a special place to come and leave my phone and emails behind. The ambience is immediately welcoming and nourishing. The practitioners here are special and offer services not found in a gym or yoga studio. This is a wonderful place for self discovery. Lisa and Marcia have spent a great deal of thought and intention in every detail to create a natural oasis. They welcome whole wellbeing and are generous with participating practitioners. Lisa is passionate about creating a conscious business and that positive energy is palpable here.
