As a Professional Life Coach and Personal Empowerment Workshop Leader, Michele often urges her clients to set goals that require them to step outside their comfort zones. So, in December 2011, Michele followed her own advice and set two personally meaningful goals that forced her way outside her comfort zone. These two goals were to travel to a far-off exotic land by herself and to discover someone or something that would enable her to develop and deepen her spirituality in a profound way. Michele had a strong and persistent “inner knowing” that this someone or something would come in the form of Yoga. India, considered by many as the yoga capital of the world, seemed like the perfect place to accomplish her goals simultaneously.
Lisa’s yoga path began in her early twenties reading dozens of healing and spiritual books. By practicing how to increase positivity and trust the power of the universe, Lisa has developed a deep gratitude for life’s experiences and a sincere desire to share the benefits of a yoga practice with others to promote greater health, peace and joy.
Lisa’s intention is to guide her students to an inward practice that will allow them to feel harmony with a higher power, make changes that are desired in their lives, and support a steady path to discovery and personal growth. Lisa’s classes promote a feeling of inclusiveness and encouragement to accept and embrace where we are in the present moment and realize the oneness in all that is. She is a graduate of Ramapo College Yoga Teacher Training. In 2016 after her first Kundalini class with Michele O’Shea she immediately felt a positive energy shift. She decided to become certified in Kundalini Yoga to deepen her understanding of the technology of Kundalini Yoga. She enrolled in KRI Level 1 Teacher training with Hari Kaur Khalsa and has completed KRI Certification Level 1. She looks forward to uplifting her students with this beautiful practice.

Tricia was first introduced to Kundalini Yoga four years ago when she attended a Kundalini Yoga Immersion, “The Radiant Power of Women,” led by Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa in Mexico. She immediately fell in love with the practice and teachings which have enabled her to transform and elevate her life in ways she could have never imagined. In 2016, Tricia deepened her affinity for Kundalini Yoga when she enrolled in Kundalini Yoga Level 1 Teacher Training at Golden Bridge, New York City, with Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa and Gurushabd Singh.
Her experience in the teacher training awakened her to her life’s purpose of opening her own day spa. In April 2017, Tricia’s dream came true when she opened Signature Massage in Hillsdale where she is a massage therapist and esthetician. Signature Massage is an oasis where people come to relax, renew and heal. Tricia credits the awakening of her life’s purpose and the manifestation of it to her experience in the teacher training and her personal practice. Tricia is KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Instructor and is very excited and eager to share the transformative teachings and practice of Kundalini Yoga with her students.
