Lisa Schrakamp

In 2009, Lisa had a six-week break from ballet classes and was looking for a way to fill that void and stay in shape, so she decided to try yoga. She never  expected to stick with it after those six weeks, but was hooked! In yoga, Lisa found the mind/body/spirit connection to be the best form of self-care she could practice. It fit perfectly into her world of a wife, mom, school counselor, and dancer. On more than one occasion, Lisa’s kids or husband would “suggest” she go take a yoga class and she couldn’t agree more. Obviously, Lisa’s yoga practice benefited the whole family.

Lisa is a consummate learner.

She works in education, has two master's degrees, and loves learning, so pursuing yoga teacher training was a natural progression of her yoga practice. Teacher training helped Lisa grow not only as a yogi but as a person. Melding the understanding of the practice on a cognitive level with the physical practice on the mat has taught her that yoga is so much more than touching your toes. Lisa has always loved teaching others and sharing her passions.

Lisa completed her first 200 hr teacher training with Jan Guinn,  E-RYT 500, YACEP, in 2017 and followed that with another 200 hr and 300 hr with Crystal Rae,  E-RYT 500, and Andres Illea,  E-RYT 500 the following year. In 2020, she completed the Mindfulness Teacher Certification with Dallas Yoga Center. She continues to learn from teachers and students as her practice grows each time she steps on the mat or leads others through practice. 
 

Laura Niguidula

Like many people, Laura found yoga at seemingly just the right time. She was 18 years old when she stepped into her first yoga class at her university's rec center. It was a breath of fresh air (literally). The practice helped her find her inner strength to overcome a broken heart. And she would come back to the practice again and again to navigate her own trauma and struggles. When she finally had the opportunity to complete her 200-hour teacher training, Laura was able to share the beauty of yoga with her students at her alma mater and her local studio in Denton, TX. Laura's teaching style is characterized by fun, creative sequences. And while she loves the physical practice, it is only one part of yoga. Laura believes in the power of breath and mindfulness to the ground and healing and helping transform people's lives - especially children, teens, and young adults.

She believes in making yoga accessible because yoga is for everybody and everybody, and it is truly something anyone can do. 

Alyssa Russell

Since childhood, yoga has helped Alyssa through many of life’s challenges. While working in corporate America from 2014 to 2020, weekly yoga classes soon became Alyssa’s only comfort.

When COVID hit, and Alyssa got long COVID, becoming a certified 200 hour yoga teacher became Alyssa’s way to build a new self; a stronger more compassionate self.  Now with the technology of yoga, Alyssa is able to teach others how to have strength, compassion, ease, and self-regulation. Alyssa believes

that when life gives us challenges, wisdom guides us back to the mat.
