We are happy to announce, introduce, and welcome Lisa Loring to The Ambitious Athletics Team. Lisa officially takes the reins as the head Yoga coach at Ambitious Athletics beginning Tuesday January 28, 2014.

Over the last 40 days Lisa has spent countless hours shadowing and meeting with Emilie and I to help smooth the transition into the role of the Yoga coach for our Ambitious Athletes. Lisa will coach and participate in Ambitious Athletics programs while Emilie prepares for her first child.

Lisa holds certifications in two yoga traditions that complement one another beautifully; Embodyoga and Forrest Yoga.

The fluid practice of Embodyoga uses traditional flow yoga techniques to explore how to move from the inner body out, to discover the same liveliness we see and feel all around us is within us, and teaches how to pare down the layers to feel how awake we are right down to the very core of every cell. These same principals are the heart of Forrest Yoga, an intensely physical and internally focused practice that uses longer-held poses to emphasize focus and strength and how to carry your transformative experience off the mat and into your daily life.

Both traditions offer access to our whole being using yoga as a path to finding and then cleansing the emotional and mental blocks that dictate and limit our lives and bring us into harmony.

During the past four years she has also been a dedicated student of T'ai Chi, Yang Long-Form and has been working with beginner students teaching T'ai Chi. This practice has informed Lisa's long-time yoga practice and has expanded her awareness which is a wonder to share with students.

Lisa works with students of all ages, from young children to golden years, and bringing yoga to every body and meeting students wherever they are is her passion. Finding the movement key that unlocks the door for each person is her goal.

Each of us is a unique expression of the One Consciousness and we bring a different, unique perspective to our practice on any given day, and with every breath our practice becomes different.

Because of this you can often hear Lisa saying, "The reason I love yoga is because I will never be good at it! It's different every day and with every breath!" Practice with Lisa - Purchase a drop in Yoga punchcard here via our online store. Get 10 Yoga training sessions for $120.
