About

Meet Lisa and get touched by the ocean breeze in our open to the air Yoga & Massage Rancho, our little private paradise, right in front of our beautiful beach Playa Las Lajas in Chiriquí.

Lisa is a 500 hours Yoga Alliance certified instructor as well as a gifted massage therapist.

Over 15 years ago, she decided to give up the corporate treadmill and embark on a life of travel and adventure. Seeking a simpler life, she ended up in Panama and spent one year living with Indigenous people of the Ngöbe Bügle tribe. She got married and together with her native husband, Gama, they offer small groups customized tours which bring the indigenous Panamanian culture and the natural, tropical environment closer to visitors.

Before becoming an instructor, Lisa practiced different types of yoga for more than 20 years. In 2008 she finished her first yoga instructor training and began teaching Vinyasa Flow. Classes are held in a secluded, open-air “Rancho” with the waves of the Pacific and the songs of tropical birds as the sound-track.  Lisa’s classes are dynamic and fun, with playful flows combined with Pranayama and meditation. She also offers restorative bodywork and Yin yoga for releasing tension, opening the breath, stretching and of course, deep relaxation.

As a massage therapist, she studied Reiki, Thai Massage, Swedish, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and Japanese acupressure massage. Over the years she has developed her own blending of styles and techniques, including pressure point release, deep tissue work, stretching, rocking and gentle shaking. Her goal is to guide you into deep relaxation – the state where self-healing begins.

Lisa believes in the healing power of yoga in combination with massage and bodywork. As a result she is passionate about sharing this power with others for the structural improvement of well-being. With her classes and events she provides inspiration and tools for curious first timers, as well as experienced yogis, to deepen and continue their yoga practice. No matter what your level, Lisa can customize a yoga experience, a treatment or a retreat, that is appropriate for you.

To experience all this in our tropical, natural environment, just a few steps away from the ocean, is magical, and will make your stay more than just a vacation:)
