Certified Iyengar Teacher

I am a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher, Level I, and have been teaching online and in-person since 2019. I teach in English, French and German. As a teacher I am methodical, passionate, and supportive. I always encourage my students to be confident in exploring their possibilities, to listen to their bodies, and to immerse themselves in their own personal Yoga practice. Since I started exploring Iyengar Yoga, I continue to deepen my knowledge and practice by attending classes and workshops regularly, with different local and international teachers. 

B.K.S. Iyengar’s words that we are all practitioners of Yoga, no matter how advanced we are in our studies resonate with me every day, on or off my mat.  

Working on a computer all day and being used to only a gym routine, Lise got me to a point where I feel flexible and free from  any tight muscles and pain
I have mild scoliosis so I have constant lower back pain that I've gotten used to. Lise's yoga class completely took my back pain away. My back felt amazing, thank you Lise!

“Yogah citta vrtti nirodhah - Yoga is the cessation of movements in the mind”

– Patanjali, The YogaSutras 1.2

Iyengar Yoga is named after Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja (BKS) Iyengar. He was one of the most influential Yoga teachers in the 20th and 21stcentury. His methods focus on the alignment of the body, mind, and soul in all asanas (poses) and are based on the tradition and philosophy of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra’s. Iyengar Yoga develops awareness, both within the sadhaka (practitioner), and outside of them, it integrates pranayama (breath), and Astanga Yoga (the eight limbs of Yoga). The Iyengar method lets the sadhaka experience the asanas in their entirety.

why the use of props?

“It is through the alignment of the body that I discovered the alignment of my mind, self, and intelligence”

– B.K.S. Iyengar

The use of props in Iyengar Yoga is widely known. But why do we sometimes use props like chairs, blocks, or straps while practicing Iyengar Yoga? B.K.S. Iyengar developed and applied the use of props in the 1970s to make asanas (poses) more accessible to students. The use of props can be helpful to attain an asana or to deepen it, and allows greater mobility in the body. Props empower the sadhaka (student) to experience the pose fully or hold the asana for a longer period of time.


"One's spiritual realization lies in none other than how one walks among and interacts with one's fellow beings"

– B.K.S. Iyengar

I would like to acknowledge that I live and work on the unceded territories of thexʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh(Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. As an uninvited guest upon these territories, I recognize I have a responsibility to continue my personal journey of unlearning and decolonization, and to using my platform and privilege to support others where I can in their ongoing efforts to do the same.

I believe it is vital that we know our past and understand current realities in order to actively build equitable spaces for everyone. We must never forget that discrimination, racism, sexism and ableism are still very present in our society, and that there is still so much work to be done to disrupt and dismantle these and all forms of oppression.  

I am committed to making my classes as inclusive as possible, by humbly sharing and teaching what I know about Yoga, to all, welcoming all lived experiences. In making this commitment, I recognize that the creation of equitable spaces is an ongoing action and not a checklist - I will continue to deepen the understanding of my own positionality in order to respect and honor those of others. I am dedicated to meeting the needs of all those I share space with through our collective Yoga practice and will always be open to being called into conversations and learning.  

I also want to acknowledge that Yoga originated in India and Southeast Asia, and that I have the utmost respect for B.K.S Iyengar and his family’s teachings and experiences. I am thankful for all the teachers before them, for without them we would not be where we are today. I am grateful for having the privilege to share this Art, and for being an eternal student of Yoga.
