Co Owner - Lisa
Lisa's yoga journey began years before she even had an inclination of becoming a yoga teacher. It was trauma that actually made her realise that yoga was her path, that she wanted to share with others what had helped her through a bad time in life.
She completed her first 200 hrs in 2013 and her 300 hrs in 2019. She knew from the start that it was her goal to open her own studio. Her first little space was such a joy only being able to fit maximum 10 mats in. After 2 years she decided to "feel the fear and do it anyway" and commit to a bigger premises. Fusion Yoga Studios was born.
She chose the name "Fusion" representing the Free Spirited approach she has to teaching this wonderful ancient practice. She likes to draw from the teachings of all of her amazing teachers and the many different yoga linages to deliver a beautiful vinyasa style practice "Fusion Yoga" .
She believes in living a life full of joy, freedom, gratitude and free from judgement. These feelings inform and guide her teaching and practice, which is focused on helping her students better connect to themselves and to improve their physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
She believes yoga is for Everyone whatever your body type or personality. Yoga is more than just physical posture and she is passionate about delivering the essence of the practice and weaving yoga philosophy into every one of her classes. She strives to bring a beautiful fusion of strength, flexibility, love, light, energy & healing to her classes.
Co Owner - Sarah
Sarah's journey with yoga began 14 years ago, when she gave birth to her son.
Shortly after his birth she was diagnosed with post-partum psychosis. She was provided care from The Beeches, Mother and baby unit in Derbyshire who introduced her to the practice of Yoga. It quickly became a life line practice for her.
Through learning yoga, meditation, mindfulness and breath work she found ways to manage her mental health and raise her beautiful son.
She is now a 400 hour Yoga Alliance registered Yoga Teacher (2019 and 2021), and is incredibly passionate about teaching yoga as a practice both on and off the mat. She believe it teaches us a beautiful way of navigating life's ups and downs, helping cultivate coping strategies, emotional intelligence, peace and balance.
PRACTICE & EDUCATION
Learn to Listen to Your Body
VINYASA & POWER
Strength, Flexibility & Healing
Number of poses and how long they are held: Generally, in power yoga there are fewer poses which are held longer. While in vinyasa flow classes there are more poses which are moved through more quickly.
Strength or Flexibility: Power yoga tends toward strength building because the poses are held longer. While vinyasa flow tends toward flexibility because the focus is on linking the poses together in a continuous movement
Body or Breath awareness: Power yoga is more body focused while vinyasa flow is more breath focused.
YIN & GENTLE YOGA
Just Be! Rather than "Do"
Believe it or not: “being” rather than “doing”, in and of itself, is an accomplishment!
Even if you enjoy a faster paced style of yoga perhaps think about challenging yourself on more of a mental/mediative level.
Principles of a Yin Practice
We come into a posture (generally seated) and we adjust until we feel sensation in the target area
We find Stillness in our shape, in mind and in breath
We hold for a length of time
"Life is a Balance of Holding on and Letting Go". - Rumi
The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body and spirit are all one and cannot be clearly separated.
Yoga Philosophy is based on the belief that mental and physical health are interrelated, and should be conditioned together. We attempt to coordinate breathing and physical movement, improve focus and concentration, and help participants regain control of their body and mind.
PRANAYAMA & MEDITATION
Breath Control and Concentration
Pranayama - Prana means life force or breath sustaining the body; Ayama translates as "to extend or draw out." Together two mean breath extension or control.
Meditation - learning to concentrate or focus on something such as a sound, image or feeling and free ourselves from distractions .
I've been doing yoga with Lisa, at The Hub Wellness Yoga Centre, for just over 6 months and I absolutely love it.
Lisa does a brilliant job of teaching beginner & intermediate yoga in the same class. She demonstrates the modifications for each move which has really built my confidence.
Each week there is a theme that shapes the session and encourages you to think about how to apply the yoga teachings in everyday life, this is done in such a way that you can take as much or as little from it as you want to.
It's a great atmosphere, providing a full body workout and a friendly vibe. Everyone supports each other and offers encouragement. It's my favourite hour of the week.
I have been attending yoga classes with Lisa for nearly three years now.Her classes are excellent with a range of options for all levels. She is a lovely teacher and always has a theme for her classes. She is very welcoming. Her classes also push you to the next level which is great for fitness. I would highly recommend her.
I have been attending Lisa's yoga classes for approximately 2 years. During this time I have learnt a great deal. Not only about the physical aspect of yoga but also how, with a combination of strong and sometimes strenuous exercise together with meditation and relaxation, a sense of calm and wellbeing can be achieved. The atmosphere in Lisa's classes is lovely. Lisa will never push you if you feel you cannot achieve a certain pose but will give gentle reassurance and praise when you do. I always leave the class feeling calm but also energised and would recommend anyone to try one of Lisa's yoga sessions.
Lisa was born to be a yoga teacher. She makes you feel very welcome, everything flows and when she says relax you learn to do just that. It is good for core strength and posture and you learn to breathe properly. I started 3 years ago and had never done yoga before. I have improved, but age and dodgy knees mean that i take advantage of the modifications that lisa makes for those of us that need it, she always tells us to do it at our own level
Having only taken up Yoga during May of this year at The Hub Wellness Centre in Heanor I have come to find that Yoga is a pleasure and I wish I had come to it sooner; Lisa brings out the best in the practice, physically, mentally but equally important spiritually making Yoga a journey for life.
Lisa is just a fabulous and lovely person who always selflessly devotes her time to others, her motivation, drive and commitment in all she does is something to be admired, and I’m proud to call myself a friend.
