Lisa Janka

Lisa is Certified to teach Bikram Method 60, 90 and Silent Classes.

How long have you been practicing Bikram Yoga?
I started practicing at the Grapevine studio in March 2006.

When/Where did you graduate from Bikram Yoga teacher training?
I graduated in the Fall of 2011 in sunny Los Angeles, CA.

Why did you decide to become a teacher?
I was inspired by the yoga, the way it cleanses and changes the body, calms the mind, and strengthens our nerves. And I love to help others. It is a perfect combination for me; it provides a healthy, nurturing, and challenging environment where I can grow and learn myself.

What is your favorite thing about teaching?
How good it makes me feel, it that selfish? I know it’s not supposed to be about me.

What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote was already taken by Jorina Petty so I guess we will have to go with my second favorite. I am not sure who wrote this intellectual quote. I saw it printed on a pencil years ago and I have always liked it.

“Never teach a pig to sing, it is a waste of your time and it annoys the pig.”

Is there anything else?
See you tomorrow! Namaste!
