Coming from a place of authenticity, Risa is known to hold the space for her students to come into their own. She teaches intuitively, guiding breath and alignment for a safe practice. She weaves into her classes philosophy, opportunities for reflection and awareness. Risa currently teaches Hatha Level 1, Level 1/2, Vinyasa Flow, Gentle Yoga, Restoratives, Yin and Therapeutics. She is also an advanced Reiki Practitioner, a Level 1 LifeForce Yoga practitioner and an Urban Zen practitioner. To be able to share with other students this sense of gratitude, quiet, joy, compassion, forgiveness and acceptance that Risa continually finds through her own practice, ever evolving, is the greatest gift of all. When she is not on her mat, Risa is blessed to be a mom to her son and daughter, a step-mom to her stepdaughters and a best friend to her husband. Her family is complete with their three dogs. She also loves to design/make jewelry and malas, hike, spend time with girlfriends, and run to the beach whenever possible.

Why do you feel retreats are transformational?

It gives us a chance to pause, to step out of the day-to-day and reconnect with the truest form of Self. The sense of connection with others on the retreat, the connection to the practice, it is all enhanced by the gift of stepping away from the everyday journey we are on, moving into self-care, our breath, our heart center.
