The turbulence of today's economy has many people off course and I have this central thought that most people are searching for a recharging experience that will lend itself to recovery. With that in mind, sometimes allowing the mind to be taken to a safe, harmonious destination while the muscles are forced to expend excess energy is just the way to achieve the desired goal, and Lisa El-Tawil, RYT is just the pilot to guide us there.
One body in complete union is great and wonderful, a complete accomplishment if you will. However what I experience watching and listening to Lisa is a community of complete strangers that become a family and experience harmony and a sense of calm, comfort and acceptance. Even if Lisa’s students are not able to attend class, they call and check in to let her know they are “okay” and they are thinking of her and what she represents. To me, an over energized “Energizer Bunny”, that finds a sense of calm with a heart rate of 180 bpm, experiencing Lisa’s abilities to find a focus point and guide her students to a union of desire and intent, thought and action is a harmonizing miracle that everyone should experience.
Lisa explains, "(yoga) teaches us how to find peace and acceptance in times of stress, something I learned firsthand during a particularly stressful time in my own life. I honestly don't know how I would have coped with my situation had I not been able to turn to my yoga practice."
"Lisa begins each class saying Honor your body today for how it is feeling today: letting go of competition, judgment and expectations.” ...The transformation begins. It is like magic, the stress is released. I invite everyone to experience, first hand, the calming effect of Lisa’s yoga practice.
