Lisa is a Yoga and Meditation Teacher with more than 27 years of self practice and teaching experience, in educational, corporate, medical and organisational settings. She has been facilitating 8-week Mindfulness-based interventions since 2007, including MBSR, MB-Stillness Meditation and MB-Restorative Yoga.

Lisa feels Yoga is an embodied organic practice that explores the interconnectedness of movement and stillness, in the spirit of self-care. Her openhearted approach to teaching creates a warm inviting space to discover the joys of these mind-body practices.

Lisa is particularly interested in the effects of restorative yoga and its application in supporting wellness and reducing stress and anxiety. She teaches weekly yoga and meditation classes and has a private practice working therapeutically with adults and couples. This works includes 8-week interventions, individual self-practice, yoga mentoring and consulting. Lisa has trained in the applications of mindfulness in clinical settings, including MiCBT and Advanced Training in ACT.

Lisa is also a visual artist, who has been exhibiting her paintings since 2000, she loves drawing, design, photography, travel and surfing. Colour evokes strong emotional responses for Pollard and this has been transferred into many of her pieces. She enjoys the inter connectedness of shape, design, texture and layering. Currently, Pollard enjoys the freedom of working spontaneously to strip back layers to reveal symbols from the unconscious. Many of her ideas cultivated from an interest in pattern, texture and colour found in natural objects, rocks, and the landscape. Pollard enjoys the relationship between the drawing, painting, colour & mark making.

Pollard believes that the arms are an extension of the heart and the artist connects to a place of stillness through the intuitive process of painting. Often her fresh earthy canvasses reveal mysterious layers evolving from a rich earthy palette, which seems reminiscent of the Australian landscape. Lisa has two young children and enjoys living in the community of Newcastle, Australia.
