I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Gawned over 10 years ago, when I happened across her as a massage therapist. Having struggled through the early, stressful months of being a first time mother,I visited Lisa for a massage and I have never looked back. I've also had the pleasure of having Lisa teach me in beginners' yoga through a guided process designed to give therapeutic benefit and confidence to new yoga participants. Through her yoga sessions and ensuing conversation,I can confidently say that Lisa has taught me to breathe and simply be in the moment- something that has been of great benefit to me mentally, physically and emotionally, and allowing me to connect on a deeper level with my daughter from infancy through her pre-teen years. She is a rare and remarkable person; honest, loyal and generous,and someone I feel I've been fortunate to know, as a care-giver and teacher.
