Teacher feature! Lisa Antoszek
We’ll be doing a monthly feature of one of our teachers over the next few months, helping you get to know them a bit better! We’ll start here with the founder of the company, Lisa Antoszek!
Lisa has also been teaching yoga for over 10 years, and has experience teaching classes that can vary from quite active, to chair yoga for people with less mobility. Lisa is certified in various styles of movement, including Movement for Trauma and Pilates. She volunteered with West End Silver Circle teaching chair yoga for many years, and currently volunteers her time teaching chair movement classes at PARC. Lisa is comfortable teaching people from all different backgrounds and abilities. Lisa is a big fan of biomechanics and incorporates functional movement principals into her classes. She is a lifelong student, and is always taking workshops, reading, and listening to podcasts to learn more about the human body and movement, in its many forms. Lisa is also a mom to 3 little boys.
Lisa’s experiences and teaching specialties include: Active Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Seniors, Limited Mobility, Hypermobility, Prenatal, Postnatal, Chair, Trauma, Pilates
Lisa teaches in: West Toronto
Lisa’s go to grounding practice: Hiking. I love taking my kids out for long walks through the forests of High Park. Nature has a way of instantly making me feel better.
Current favourite band: Moses Sumney. I saw him perform on an NPR Tiny Desk concert video on Youtube, and I was smitten. I’ve been listening to his album on repeat ever since.
Current favourite place: My bed. As a sleep deprived mom of a baby, with 2 older kids, I love nothing more than curling up with a good book at the end of the day. Or middle of the day. Anytime, really 🙂
