Lisa Sanfilippo (BSc, MSc, Senior Teacher) offers you yoga practices and experiences that peel away physical tension to develop greater insight into your body, emotions, soul and spirit. Her insightful guidance helps you build your awareness, physical healing and sustainable strength of character. She is dedicated to bringing you enjoyable challenges- with principles and inspiration drawn from biomechanical alignment, alchemical traditions, energy anatomy, depth psychology, philosophy and neuroscience.
Her teaching is based in two decades of asana, pranyama and meditation practice. Her yoga therapeutics background and 6 years of training in transpersonal (soul and spirit centred) counselling and psychotherapy revolutionised her teaching, creating a depth of field that students find palpably transformative. As a health and psychology writer with two books one published in 2019 and one scheduled for 2020, and a scholarly book chapter in Yoga for Mental Health, she teaches clearly and concisely, with compassion and creativity.
Her teachers include many in the Anusara yoga tradition and latterly John Stirk; psychotherapy training at CCPE in London, apprenticeship with Anodea Judith, and past collaboration with the neuroscience and research-based Minded Institute. Lisa co-teaches the triyoga Teacher Training with Erika Tourell and teaches Yoga Therapy for Insomnia + Sleep Recovery on the faculty of the Yogacampus Yoga Therapy Diploma and as continuing professional development for teachers.
