Registered Buteyko Breathing Educator
Certified Massage Practitioner
Lisa was a lifelong sufferer of asthma and allergies until she discovered the Buteyko Breathing Technique a few years ago.
Now she's a Level RB2 Buteyko instructor with the Buteyko Breathing Educators Association.
Lisa grew up in San Francisco, lived in Oakland for many years and now calls Marin home.
Allergies and asthma limited her life for a long time and she's thrilled to be able to teach others now how to overcome those difficulties.
"As a kid, I couldn't go to slumber parties because most of my friends had cats and dogs to which I was allergic," she remembers. "Before I stopped going altogether in the third grade, I would routinely wake up in the middle of the night with a major asthma attack in front of several other little girls. Pretty embarrassing and uncomfortable."
She didn't excel in sports, couldn't learn how to ride a horse because she was allergic to them. got lots of colds all winter long...
These limitations extended into her adulthood when she felt uncomfortable going to parties at homes with pets.
Now Lisa has a cat and two pet rats at home.
Lisa is a graduate of the Diamond Light School of Massage and Healing Arts in San Anselmo. She is a California Certified Massage Practitioner, #32577, and is offering massage between breathing classes.
