Lisa Pafe teaches Vinyasa, Hatha, and Yin yoga and is always looking for a new challenge. Lisa received her 200-hour RYT Fluid Vinyasa Yoga certification with Kevan Gale, and she also trained in Yin Yoga at East Meets West Yoga Center. She is the USA Yoga Federation 2016 Senior Women’s Division Virginia and Mid-Atlantic Region Asana Champion and is ranked 7th nationally.
Patrick Staton started practicing yoga in college, but it became a true passion for him during his first year of graduate school. After his first Bikram class, he was determined to make yoga a large part of his life. Patrick has found that practicing Bikram and Vinyasa yoga helped with all aspects of life, and could not wait to help others find their ‘yoga path.’ After a year of practicing Bikram and Vinyasa, he enrolled in the 200 hour Fluid Vinyasa Teacher Training so he could teach what he loved.
