Yoga Pixie, Sensible Yoga

My name is Lisa, I am a yoga teacher living in Blackburn, Lancashire, and I teach in the surrounding areas.

I have a lifelong passion for being outdoors in nature. I spent a
very active childhood climbing trees, biking and adventuring in the
local countryside, alongside ballet dancing and swimming.

I first began my yoga posture practice in 2009, following a car

my own practice and philosophy. In this time I have studied yoga
teaching skills, yoga philosophy and history, psychology, anatomy,
physiology, theories of human movement and much more.

I began teaching yoga in August 2016 in local leisure centres and
started my own regular Yoga Pixie classes in 2017. Being able to share
yoga with my local community is an amazing experience. I remain
passionate about learning how we connect with the world around us and
within us, embracing movement and authentic expression throughout our
