Lisa Fargnoli is a yoga teacher and holistic counselor. She grew up in Westchester, New York and has lived in New York City, Washington D.C. and now resides back in New York with her husband, Peter, 5 year old son, Sage, and their dog, Lilybean. At twenty -six she began studying Zen Buddhism which eventually led her to leave her job as a special effects producer and return to school to study yoga and holistic living. There, she not only studied asanas or postures but metaphysics, sanskrit, philosophy, anatomy and so much more. "What I love about yoga is that it's over six thousand years old, with so much history, so there's always something to learn". She has been an Adjunct Professor of Yoga at Manhattanville University and done fundraising for Food and Friends and The Animal Welfare League. In her free time she enjoys doing yoga with her son who caught the "yogabug" while he was in her belly, sports, gardening for all the deer that seem to be eating it and taking advantage of the Hudson Valley Region.
