Lisa Ash Drackert specializes in Meditation, Therapeutic Yoga,  Alignment Based Yoga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga. She is a teacher, dreamer and adventure lover who believes the world would be a better place if everyone meditated and kissed doggies daily.

Lisa Ash Drackert began teaching yoga in 2008 and completed her RYT-500 credentials through the Interdisciplinary Institute of Yoga Studies in 2015. She was the Studio Manager at Westport Yoga KC for three years before assuming ownership in 2017.

Lisa also completed Yoga Teacher Training courses in Yoga Therapy with Tiffany Cruikshank of Yoga Medicine and in Bhakti Flow Yoga with Rusty Wells.  Lisa studied extensively with Kathleen Kastner-Mortenson, Kate Lindholm Sargent of Westport Yoga and Gretchen Robinson of Mark Blanchard’s Power Yoga. Her background includes university degrees in Education and Religious Studies.

In 2015, Lisa was the Critic’s Choice Winner: “Best Yoga Instructor in Kansas City” from The Pitch’s Best of KC Awards.

Lisa’s classes are creative, energetic, challenging and deeply engaging. She says, “Most of us move through life yearning for freedom and space to ‘be ourselves.’ Yoga provides us an individualized architecture based in thousands of years of collective wisdom. I love yoga because the asanas transform our bodies, which then transforms our thoughts, our spirits, our everything. Teaching yoga is teaching people to genuinely listen in order to heal and to be themselves.”
