Lisa Jo Burke

I attended Cal Poly as a gymnast and graduated with an accounting degree. I am a licensed massage therapist and find joy in helping others heal. I was inspired to teach yoga by my grandmother who was a teacher. Having finished my 500 hour Yoga Alliance teacher training here at Yoga Village I hope to bring my love for yoga and healing to my classes. My teaching is dedicated to the memory of my grandmother.


Lisa Jo Burke instructs the following:
  • YogaSomatics
  • A series of exercises which consist of tiny, slow muscle movements enhanced by gentle yoga poses.  Somatic movement has been known to achieve dramatic results in countering the body’s aging process. These movements teach our brain to release the habitual muscular contractions in our body created by our motor sensory system’s daily responses to stress and trauma.
