About Lisa Jang

E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500, YACEP, AFAA

Growing up in British Columbia, I had the opportunity to explore the city by foot, bike or public transportation. I remember playing around the back alley with my childhood friends, digging for insects in my friend’s garden, climbing frames of half built houses and our family’s weekly exploration and navigation around Vancouver’s rich Chinatown. I have always enjoyed exploring and independently figuring things out.

I was always inquisitive.

My first yoga class was at a large gym. It was on a Sunday morning that I had taken the instructor’s kickboxing class and decided to stay for her yoga class. I was intrigued, nonetheless. She was so good teaching two very different formats. I enjoyed the way she approached class with authenticity, humbleness and blissfulness every Sunday. It was a propitious beginning.

My interest grew. Since then, I have studied under some of the industry’s most knowledgeable and skillful teachers. From the spearhead of Yin Yoga, Bernie Clark to the parents of Yin Yoga, Paul and Suzee Grilley.

I have been teaching group fitness and yoga since 2001. Fast forward, my journey has evolved to be a continuous inquiry on interoception, anatomy, embryology, movement, fitness and Chinese energy healing. I co-facilitate the 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training and lead the Yin Yoga Teacher Training Program at Joya Yoga. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy face-planting in fun arm balances, falling out of tree pose and doing mostly the yin yoga practice exploring angles!
