Transformation through Mantra, Meditation & Movement with Lisa Jan Cohen

The Path you are on is the Path to Enlightenment.

Together, let us explore the power of the breath, intention, sound, movement, and touch to access a deeper vitality, connection, and peace. Lisa’s passion, presence, and positivity weave together a multi-sensory experience. Pain that is not transformed is transmitted. With great love and devastating loss, Lisa continues her journey of transformation. If you are not changing you are dying. Lisa trusts this yogic path. She trusts her community, family, friendships, teachers and her heart. She can teach this to you; through dedicated practice of breath, song, intention, and movement. Create freedom so that we might expose and express ourselves as to what is possible and what it means for us to be alive.

Two years ago, Lisa lost her precious 21 year-old daughter to fatal anaphylaxis in her arms. She is the Founder of The Kyah Rayne Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing food allergy awareness, education and epinephrine availability.

Lisa’s professional dance career and international travels led her to become a student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and a devoted Ashtangi. With thirty years on the mat, she weaves together an eclectic mix of many yoga styles and continues to practice and study with masters all over the world. She incorporates yoga philosophy, postures, and passion to each class to inspire and encourage her students to find joy, gratitude, and freedom through the discipline of yoga. Lisa’s credentials include International Yoga Teacher Training and Mentorship programs. Classes are inclusive to all levels of students and teachers.

20 Questions with Lili Cohen

20 Questions image

Recently, we got to play 20 Questions with Local Collective member, Lili Cohen. Before you read the interview you should know, Lili is one of those bright lights that you’re not really sure what to make of upon a first meeting or as she sits in front of the yoga room. She is bold, dynamic, tall, impressive, loud and smiley. She’s the one with the big hand gestures and the funniest stories. She is honest and not afraid to embarrass herself. She’s hard to top, but she will always invite you to tell your story and ask your opinion and impressions. She is approachable, generous, kind and very loyal. She makes no excuses for her sharp tongue or quick wit and she will always give you a direct, sometimes crude, answer that might stun you. She likes people who can stand on their own two feet, confident of who they are, because she is very sure who she is. She’s definitely one of a kind. You’re sucked into her energy before you really know what has happened and then you come back for more. It’s very fun to be with her because you’re never sure what kind of shenanigans might happen but you want to be a part of it!

gy: Why do you teach yoga?

gy: What first brought you to the mat? Give us a short story of your first yoga experience.

lc: After a life of being on the stage I was done with professional dancing. My sister (Tara Mala White/yogini) brought me to my first Primary Series Astanga class with Prem Carlisi in the 90’s. I did every pose. I thought I would die that night in the bathtub. I have never left the mat.

gy: What yoga teacher(s) has most influenced your practice and teaching?

lc: Sri K. Phattabi Jois, Prem Carlisi, Tim Miller, Dave Oliver (Ashtanga), Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa (Kundalini), David Life & Sharon Gannon (Jivamukhti), John Friend (Anusara), B.K.S. Iyengar (Iyengar)

gy: How would you describe your teaching style?

lc: All mixed up…… A very creative blend of my Ashtanga roots, fluidity, alignment and FUN! We smile alot in Practice (especially after being filmed doing my Second Series Practice and I looked unhappy “duhka” not “sukha”).

gy: What’s your go-to yoga pose when you only have a few minutes? Why?

lc: Surya Namaskar A. It’s a prayer!

gy: Where do you most tap into inspiration? Any resources you could share with us? (yoga, life, place, website…anything!)

lc: Experience

gy: What would the soundtrack of your life sound like? (Feel free to share a spotify creation if you’d like!)

lc: We are Family, Pointer Sisters

gy: Describe your life ten years from now . Where are you living? What are you doing?

lc: Living abroad once again and teaching yoga

gy: What is your favorite tradition or ritual?

lc: Morning Meditation of gratitude and dancing my ass off twice a week.

gy: You have a Sunday all to yourself . How do you spend it?

lc: Blowing bubbles

gy: What do you value most in your relationships?

lc: Honesty

gy: Tell us about your first love . Five words or less.

lc: Great sex.

gy: What’s the picture on your phone’s background? Why did you choose it?

lc: “I got all my sisters with me” (We are Family= #7)

gy: When you’re gone, what do you hope people remember about you?

lc: BADASS (a mixture of grace and grit)

gy: Any particular yama, niyama or sutra that speaks to you right now? Can you elaborate on that a little bit?

lc: Sutra 1:1. Atha Yoga Anushasanam. At last we have arrived at this most auspicious moment. This right here, right now, we bask in the moment and discover the experience of Yoga.

gy: In your parallel life, what are you doing? Any other callings that have taken the backseat to yoga that we should know about

lc: Be a clown. Bring happiness, humor and healing to those in need

gy: If neither time nor money were a concern, what would you do?

lc: Teach Yoga

gy: What is your astrological sign. What do you most identify with about it?

lc: Aries. Fire.

gy: What’s your spirit animal?

lc: Lion

gy: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

lc: Just do it.
