Lisa Mitchell

Curious, compassionate, genuine and present are a few words the describe me. As a lifelong learner, I am fascinated by the process of transformation. I hold a Master of Adult Education in Community Development and Counselling Psychology from the University of Toronto and have studied somatic and spiritual psychotherapy. A student and teacher of yoga for over fifteen years, I have completed numerous yoga teacher training programs, accumulating well over a thousand hours of education. The kind of yoga experience I like to facilitate is slow, mindful and trauma sensitive. I am particularly interested in how yoga and mindfulness can promote embodiment and mental health. My journey with yoga has offered me the opportunity to support individuals dealing with addiction, trauma, stress, illness, anxiety and depression through classes, workshops and individual sessions. I have taught yoga in a variety of settings such as treatment centres, hospitals, schools, churches, workplaces, hotels, beaches, and studios. I believe yoga for is for everyone. In addition to being a yoga educator, I offer mental health counselling. Visit to learn more about me and my services.
