About Gaya Yoga

Lisa Boccia

After spending two decades in the corporate world providing interpreting services into English and Italian to both national and international companies and following the untimely loss of her father, she discovered yoga and with it, her true calling.

Lisa is an RYT800 and trained in London, India and Los Angeles under the guidance of a number of sought-after and internationally acclaimed teachers and spiritual masters.

A strong interest in mindfulness, meditation, psychology and neuroscience coupled with her own profound experience of the transformative power of yoga for mind, body and soul, lead her to complete a specialised training in Advanced Yoga Psychology in Los Angeles with yoga teacher to the celebrities and licensed psychotherapist, Ashley Turner.

Her main interest is in the application of yoga and meditation/mindfulness as medicine for mind, body and soul and she is passionate about making this sacred practice available to everybody regardless of age, physical shape/size and cultural background.

She believes that it is through movement that we express and enjoy our aliveness and that the human body is designed to move and flourish at every stage of its earthly journey.

She specialises in Hatha Yoga but also offers Vinyasa flow and Restorative/therapeutic yoga.

Lisa is also a certified meditation instructor and an I AM Yoga Nidra certified instructor and is passionate about sharing the magic of the practice and its infinite possibilities.
