Shawn received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (1980), and Masters of Clinical & Anesthesia Education (1988). She practiced as a CRNA for 34 years, retiring April 2021 from a private anesthesia practice specializing in Podiatrics. With an inquisitive mind rooted equally in science and movement, Shawn discovered yoga to be a perfect amalgam of these two worlds. She has completed years of training and is registered as an E-RYT500 with Yoga Alliance, and as a Yoga Therapist, C-IAYT, with the International Association of Yoga Therapists. She is currently completing training as an i-Rest Level 1 provider, with Richard Miller, PhD.
Balanced within the worlds of art and science, her teachings reflect the paradox between the body’s structural biomechanics, and the subtleties of intuitive grace and creativity. Shawn offers private Yoga Therapy and Thai Yoga Therapy, workshops, all level Yoga Mix, Vinyasa Flow, and small group Yoga Newbies. Her teaching style supports a mindful alignment-focused practice which cultivates balance, awareness, and equanimity.
In 2019, Shawn began weekly studies in acting for camera with Rick Ibarra Rivera, and studies regularly with online acting coaches and workshop opportunities. She is honored to be represented by MAM who has supported her local film and commercial experiences.
Shawn co-founded South Perry Yoga LLC, in 2006. From OCT 2011- OCT 2020, she designed and led renovations of the historic building in the South Perry district referred to as "the Buddhio". From NOV 2020 - JULY 2021 she designed and helped manage the 9-month renovation of "The CLUTCH", a historic warehouse in the Sprague Union District, where her studio currently resides. Shawn is the CLUTCH liaison for Yoga and the Actor's Plenty, which supports rehearsal space for local film and theater communities.

In 1972, I attended my first yoga class and fell in love with the practice immediately! Over the last 50 years I have been fortunate to study with some amazingly skilled instructors, mostly in traditions of alignment and flow. I have attended many teacher trainings, owned and operated a couple of yoga studios including most recently, Harmony Yoga, and have directed and taught multiple teacher trainings.
With more than 35 years teaching experience, my style has morphed over the years and integrates alignment, flow, breathwork, philosophy and chanting. My hope is that students leave my classes feeling peaceful, balanced and inspired in body, mind and spirit.
Lisa Waddle is a 500 hour certified yoga instructor, sound healer, and creativity guide. She is passionate about holding space for people to heal, nourish, reignite their creativity, and connect to their truth.
Her teaching style encourages students to notice their breath, observe their mind, and explore body sensations without any judgement or expectation in order to fully embrace themselves where they are, as they are, whole, complete, and radiant.
Lisa would love to share yoga with you, in person or through Zoom.
