Lisa Siniard

Walking through the door at Etowah Valley Yoga on January 5, 2009 was a life-changing event for Lisa Siniard.  With no previous yoga experience, Lisa came to the mat with an “open heart and an open mind” and fell deeply in love.  In love with yoga and how it made her feel, she simply couldn’t stay away.  Attending an average of 4-6 classes per week, she quickly became fully immersed in yoga, and hasn’t looked back!

In January 2011 she began her 200-Hour Teacher Training Program with Sue at Etowah Valley Yoga and is excited about the opportunity to share her love of yoga.  She currently teaches classes on Wednesday and Friday at 7:15 a.m, and Monday Yoga Basic at 7:00 PM.
