Meet Your Teacher

Lisa Simpson

Hi, I’m Lisa. My yoga journey began about 18 years ago when I attended my first yoga class. I will always be a student of yoga, but my teaching journey began in 2013 when I completed my foundation 200hrs YTT with Sun Power Yoga School.

Shortly after I opened a Yoga Studio in Derbyshire. As a busy mum to 5 children this was no small feat but I took a leap of faith and followed my calling to share these teachings, as part of my greater purpose in life. It has since been 10 years with a wonderful community of yogis and the greatest fulfilment.

In Feb 2020, I completed my 300hrs YTT Vinyasa & Yin Yoga in India, under the guidance of my teacher Julia Gavin of Palm Trees Yoga School. Julia entrusted me to deliver her 200 hour yoga teacher training course while I developed my own teacher training content. I am now very pleased to have had my own YTT manual certified under the new enhanced Yoga Alliance  teacher training requirements.

Fusion School of Yoga was born in 2022! I am honoured to be able to encourage others to follow their callings too, and to facilitate the beginning of your teaching journey, knowing the life changing impact it has had on my life and the potential it holds for you too. I look forward to welcoming you to my studio in Derbyshire, and my wonderful community of YTT graduates.
