Jivamukti Workshop w/ Lisa Rapp
Lisa was born
in Brooklyn, New York and as many practitioners began asana at a young
age with Lilias Folan by watching “Lilias! Yoga and You”. Over 20 years
later she found her first teacher Nancy LaNasa; this is where the seed
of compassion and devotion were forever planted through the practice of
Nancy urged her to study yoga at the
Satchidananda Ashram lovingly known as Yogaville. It was there that she
was blessed to sit at the holy feet of Sri Swami Satchidananda who she
reverently refers to as Sri Gurudev and upon completion of Integral Yoga
TT came the birth of My Yoga Spirit; Norfolk’s first spiritually based
Lisa was blessed to attend the 2005 Jivamukti Yoga
TT where she sat at the holy feet of David Life and Sharon Gannon. This
is where she met a teacher that spoke to her heart on the deepest level
through the love of Sanskrit, dearly loved Manorama-ji who is reverently
called Guru Ma as well as her mentor today and always beloved Lady Ruth
Lauer-Manenti. Love for her teachers runs deep; she accredits them for
everything she is today and devotes all to them. Every one of those
teachers is in the room with her when she guides a class.

the spiritual warrior within as well as a hip hop vibe drawing from her
old Brooklyn roots.
