Liisa Walimaa

Chandler, AZ 85224

Liisa is a certified yoga instructor, registered with Yoga Alliance, best known for her unique blend of grace, athleticism, and humour on and off her yoga mat. She is respected for her clear and precise instructions, whilst also weaving yoga tradition, Sanskrit translation, Hindu mythology, human anatomy, medical findings, and the occasional amusing anecdote into her teaching. As a lifelong dancer and a trained gymnast, she is intensely interested in the structure and mechanics of the body, and how movement affects mind and spirit. Her experience as a trainer, public speaker, and choreographer combine to make her classes flow.

Liisa teaches over 1000 hours per year, currently at five locations around Phoenix, Arizona. Serving yoga practitioners of all levels of experience and ability, her classes reflect the integration of many styles of yoga, and are always non-competitive, welcoming, vibrant and fun. She has been instrumental in developing and sustaining a yoga outreach program, allowing Phoenix's homeless population to participate in weekly no-cost yoga and meditation practices with qualified teachers. She is also an IDEA Health & Fitness Association Member, a licensed ZUMBA® instructor, and a member of the ZUMBA® Instructor Network.

Liisa & her husband, Bill, are specialists in Partner Yoga, teaching several workshops a year together to help share the physical and emotional benefits of yoga, and the further gifts of building connection and trust working with a partner. When they are not on their yoga mats, you'll likely find Liisa & Bill wherever there is music, enthusiastically dancing the Lindy Hop or engaged in a sultry Argentine Tango. They regularly perform at numerous concerts, benefits, and events, including Scottsdale Fashion Week, The Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, and in a major motion picture, and have won major dance contests.
