Lisa Maniatis: 

“I was first introduced to Yoga in 2007 with the idea that it was purely a form of exercise, but it had an instant positive impact on my life. I was taught by various teachers whilst travelling, and grew more intrigued by the whole experience. By 2010 it was time to take a Hatha yoga teachers training with Swara Yoga School in Thailand.

My continuous fascination with Yoga led me to Yasodhara Ashram and Study Centre, Canada, where I spent 9 months studying.  I completed a Yoga Development Course and took a second teachers training in Hatha Yoga and did some teaching at the Ashram before returning to the UK.

Throughout my life I have worked with children and adults with learning and physical disabilities. I was introduced to the Special Yoga Centre in London and took a course in Yoga for the Special Child.

Having experienced incredible results with my own health and that of others, I realised I wanted to understand the therapeutic impact that Yoga has on peoples physical and mental health. I therefore took a Yoga Therapy course which uses Yoga poses, breathing exercises, nutritional and lifestyle advice to treat and prevent common health problems.

My desire to keep learning drew me next to train in Pre/Post pregnancy yoga with Katy Appleton in London and with the arrival of my son I now also offer Mummy and Baby yoga.

For several years I have been running my own studio The Yoga Being firstly in Gosport. More recently her classes and workshops have gone online as well as to other locations in the Gosport and Fareham area. I  endeavour to keep offering and creating workshops and classes to help guide students to live a wholesome healthy and conscious life.

I am excited to see where the next part of  this journey will take me and feel grateful for this wonderful practise in my life.’
