One on One Classes
Personal training intensifies your learning curve in movement improvement and overall fitness. Whether your goal is to lose weight and increase muscle mass or you are dealing with injuries and health issues, I offer effective and convenient private 75 minute sessions at your location or my home studio. Customized programs are designed and implemented based on your body type, lifestyle and personal goals. Options include Pilates, Barre, Circuit Training and Yoga for Vitality to build endurance, strength, flexibility, and reduce excess tension. Yoga for Recovery sessions focus on rehabilitation exercises, energy-balancing postures, meditation and breathing techniques to optimize health.
NUTRITION AND LIFESTYLE COACHING
Energy-balancing bodywork is a deeply meditative experience received fully-clothed through a series of specific hand placements. It facilitates the release of deep layers of cellular memory associated with physical and emotional pain, trauma and abuse. This gentle approach orchestrates the”chi” or universal life force to energetically balance the physical, etheric, emotional and mental bodies aligning them with the individual’s spiritual body. Benefits include an increased awareness of one’s higher self and a thorough rest for the nervous system to enhance health and well-being. It can be experienced on a massage table or combined with a well-supported Restorative Yoga session for additional release of deep-held muscular tension.
Workshops and Trainings
I offer monthly events in the DC area in conjunction with local studios, businesses and schools. Workshops focus on wellness solutions designed for specific groups of people whether weary moms, office workers or retirees. Themes range from self-massage techniques for physical challenges to mood management, mindful eating, restorative yoga, bone and joint health as well as energy-balancing exercises and intuitive movement for pain relief. Events are often co-facilitated with other experts in the wellness field.
It is my pleasure to be on faculty at the Inner Domain Yoga School and Rock the Reformer by Potomac Pilates. I encourage interested students to inquiry about their wonderful teacher trainings. Yoga practitioners can pursue 200 and 500 hour certification with Yoga Alliance. Pilates enthusiasts can study to become teachers at one of RTR Pilates five locations now in the country. I am honored to provide knowledge of anatomy and functional movement skills to these gifted trainees.
"- Marilyn Martens, Massage Therapist
Lisa is the epitome of a yogi, she is grace. Her classes are by far the best I’ve attended over my 15 year yoga practice. She has tremendous knowledge of human anatomy and explains what muscles engage in different poses which I personally enjoy. Lisa’s dance class is a wonderful experience. Lisa teaches us to dance from the heart. It’s magical! I’ve experienced LaHo-Chi bodywork too. It is a very powerful healing modality.The energy exchange is palpable, it’s deeply relaxing and I felt better than I had in awhile after recovering from surgery."

Lisa Johnson made the anatomy of our workshop simple and easy to understand. The demonstrations gave me a host of new and interesting ways to approach the practice of yoga with private clients and in the classroom. My fitness clients will benefit as well from some of the techniques."
"- Jill Holland, E-RYT 200
I am so enjoying the instruction you’ve been providing as part of the 500-level yoga training program. With your sunny disposition and obvious passion that you have for the human body, the information you share is a delight to receive. I particularly enjoy the subtle movement exercises that you have the students perform as you explain the physiology/kinesiology behind it. I was truly shocked at home much more contracted one side of my body was and how quickly I was able to correct it in a very counter-intuitive way. With your creative use of props and encouragement, I was able to assimilate your teachings quite quickly. I am so looking forward to learning more from you in the next session."
"- Christy Young, Artist
I get so much out of Lisa’s weekly class as both my mind and body are affected in positive ways. Her classes are indeed demanding, however, the results are immediate as I feel both stronger and am in better overall physical alignment. At the same time my general point of equilibrium seems reset, giving me more mental balance and clarity – a true feeling that I’ve restored and empowered my soul and spirit. Surely this must be a sign of a wonderful teacher, to be able to transform her students in such amazing ways."
"- Nyari Baptista, Mother and Graduate Student
Working out with Lisa has been a blessing in so many ways. For one thing, our mornings are never the same, and I can guarantee you that she definitely keeps me on my toes, or hands, or both depending on the exercises that we work through. Both my body and my mind are in the best shape of my life, and that is something that I have not been able to say about any other trainer. Period! What I have learned through the years of training with Lisa is to never give up because great things, including your body, take time! For all of this and more, I am very grateful."
