Lisa took her first yoga class in 1999, a recommended remedy to a bodybuilding injury. She found that yoga brought not only physical healing, but also the opportunity faor a more meaningful connection with herself and others.
After she’d been teaching land based yoga for over 7 years, in 2012 Lisa discovered the fusion of two of her loves: water and yoga. She began practicing SUP Yoga and earning certifications to teach the practice to students and aspiring SUP Instructors. Lisa has since pioneered SUP Yoga & Fitness classes (both outdoors & indoor pools) throughout the Front Range and the Colorado Rocky Mountain region.
Lisa has spent much time on the water. She earned a rowing scholarship to University of Miami where she raced on the Varsity Crew team. She earned her Dive Master scuba diving, while sailing through the British Virgin Islands, and when she moved to Colorado, Lisa began white-water kayaking.
One day, in the midst of a hip-opening yoga posture, Lisa had the curious sensation that there was a book. In her hips. The process of unraveling the physical and the emotional trauma surrounding the tragic loss of both of her parents led her to write her memoir, Thirst. She is a working writer with articles in various publications available at lisafierer.com
Also through the doorway of yoga, Lisa began to study Sanskrit. In 2009 Lisa completed an 18-month immersion utilizing Sanskrit in teaching Yoga. Lisa’s teaching is infused with the wisdom of this ancient yoga-based language as well as her love of water, humor, and making SUP & SUP Yoga/ Fitness available to all levels.
Lisa is certified to teach the following Paddle Into Fitness courses:
