Lisa Gulotta

Movement, rhythm, and dance have been my primary sources of joy from earliest memory. A childhood injury at an early age, however, made me conscious of what a gift it really was to be able to move freely. The result has been an inspiring journey through life.

That injury brought me to a renewed relationship to my body and to an even deeper, more conscious exploration of the joy—and the health benefits—to be found in movement.

My journey began when I entered my first dance class at the age of four. Years of training led to dance performance and choreography, gradually evolving into a career in the fitness profession. In my late thirties I discovered yoga. This was a revelation, for it proved to be the culminating discipline that enabled me to integrate all my interests. In my personal life, yoga has become my primary mode of self-expression. In my teaching, it becomes one of three pillars: dance, fitness, yoga.

These pillars support what has turned out to be an even more encompassing love: teaching itself. I realized I had a passion for sharing the joy of movement with others. A significant part of my life, now, lies in helping students open to the sources of joy within their own bodies. I take delight in seeing them respond to what is really a simple truth: Movement is life.

In 2007, I became a Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher. The same year I also finished my studies with the Cancer Exercise Training Institute and became certified as a Cancer Exercise Specialist.

I continue to study with Elise Miller, a Senior Iyengar Teacher, and have certified with her as a Yoga for Scoliosis Trainer.

Among all these activities, I can honestly say that my proudest moment was the deep satisfaction I felt after creating and completing a special video program for cancer patients and survivors: The Next Step, Vol. 1: Restorative Exercises After Breast Cancer.
