Founder and Owner of Yoga on Main I am simply here to share my passion for yoga with others. I first stumbled into a power yoga class about 12 years ago as a way to compliment my marathon training and have been hooked ever since. I have fallen in love with the transformative benefits that comes with such a physically demanding practice.
I completed my first power yoga training with Amazing Yoga. I then went on to deepen my own personal practice and enhance my knowledge by completing South Hills Power Yoga Teacher Training. I am a certified Baptiste Power Yoga instructor with several trainings from the Baptiste Institute and have completed 500 hours of professional yoga teacher training
When I’m not on my mat I am a proud mama to my daughters Adalynn and Teagan. I am both humbled and honored to be able to share this beautiful and life changing practice with you.
I achieved my 200hr power yoga flow certification through Salt Power Yoga in 2017 and
LYB Teacher Training for Health Professionals in 2019 to integrate yoga-based tools for traumatic brain injury patients in the healthcare system as well as the studio. Yoga has taught me so many lessons on and off the mat. It has given me a safe haven to just breathe while feeling the support of others. “Yoga is a dance between control and surrender-between pushing and letting go “–Joel Kramer. Off the mat I work full time as a Physical Therapist Assistant at a school with students who have multiple disabilities and visual impairments, I enjoy exploring the outdoors, drinking wine and hanging with my family and 3 crazy fur-babies.
Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a “late in life” yoga fanatic! I stepped onto a yoga mat in 2012 and loved it! I fell, I struggled, I perspired ( a lot!) but I also felt wonderful and knew I wanted to do more. One of my life goals was to become certified to teach yoga before I turned 60. I accomplished that and now want to share my passion for yoga with others.
Practicing yoga helps balance the mind, body and soul. The natural movements encourage the body to strengthen and heal by focusing on the present moment in a judgement free environment. I’m honored to have the chance to share this enlightenment with others.
I completed my first teacher training with Amazing Yoga of Pittsburgh focusing on Power Vinyasa and received my RTY200 through The Yoga Collective.
My mat is my refuge. A place to regain a better perspective. When I’m not focused on my mat I am working full time and enjoy spending time with my husband, 4 grown children and 2 dogs!
I have always been active, but it was not until a few years ago that I discovered power yoga when I took a beginner class at Yoga on Main and have been hooked ever since! Initially, I viewed yoga as a way to maintain and improve my physical health, not realizing the sense of peace and balance it would provide for me as I transitioned from “Soccer Mom” to “Empty Nest”.
I am both humbled and blessed to be joining the amazing staff at Yoga on Main. I completed my 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training and Yoga Alliance Certification with Yoga Flow Pittsburgh. My intention is to inspire my students to breathe in the present moment; to encourage and promote core strength for health and longevity, and to challenge students in a way that promotes self-growth,love, and daily gratitude.
When not on my mat, I am a Reading Specialist at a local elementary school. In my free time, I can be found spending time with family, my husband Greg, my daughters Abby and Kate, and my two Cavachon pups.
It is with gratitude that I accepted a teaching position at the place I have been rolling out my mat for the past three years. I will continue to learn and grow alongside my Yoga on Main community.
Hi! I’m Adrienne and I am so excited to share the practice of yoga with you. I was introduced to yoga by a friend after experiencing extreme muscle tightness from running and I haven’t looked back since! My practice developed little by little over the years, but once I experienced heated vinyasa at Yoga On Main — it exploded from an interest to a PASSION. I realized very quickly that something that started as “just a workout” had become so much more. It has granted me a greater sense of balance in my life and an increased ability to better manage my stress outside of the corners of my mat. The experience has led me to a place where I felt the desire to complete my RYT 200 through My Vinyasa Practice so I may be able to relay the many beauties of this practice to others.
Outside of yoga, I enjoy traveling with my husband, music, hiking, biking, hanging with my two dogs and two cats, cooking, and spending time with family. Welcome and Namaste, Yogis!

I grew up doing competitive gymnastics for 10+ years always putting an intense impact on my body. After I decided to let gymnastics go, i turned to high-school diving and track. I’ve always loved to be athletic in anyway, and In my off seasons of sports, mainly in the summer I never truly stayed consistent with the types of workouts I would do. During the pandemic i really got into fitness. Everyday I was always walking, and doing some intensive workout, killing my body and being sore for multiple days after. I would dread having to workout again, and often times came up with many excuses to skip it. I did yoga a little the year before at another studio, and finally chose to give Yoga On Main a try in fall of 2021, and am so glad I did because it has changed my life. I never once dreaded going to hot yoga, I actually look forward to it. Yoga truly is the perfect thing that my body has been needing. It allows my mind to have a break from everything, while my body is able to move. Yoga has helped me build a more positive relationship with my body, and be grateful for what it does for me daily rather than point out every flaw.
I am extremely excited to be able to share my passion with others at Yoga On Main. I completed my 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Flow Pittsburgh. I am so beyond thankful to have gone through the training with my beautiful mother, and glad we share the same passion.
When I’m not on my mat, you can find me doing something with my family and/or friends. I’m also currently a student studying education at The University of Pittsburgh. I’ve taught gymnastics at Butler Gymnastics to young kids for the past 4 years, and continue to. I’ve always had a passion to help and teach others, and I can not wait to share my practice with all of you!
I was introduced to Yoga in 2019 by a close friend, in October 2021 I stepped in to Yoga On Main with my Daughter to explore a Heated Power Yoga Class. I have always made time for exercise of some sort whether it was Yoga, Walking, Biking or hitting the Gym but it often felt like a CHORE. After my first class at YOM I was hooked! I could not say enough about my experience, I told everyone who would listen about the reward of Hot Yoga at Yoga on Main, recruiting friends to join me in my journey. My love and passion for Yoga has only grown deeper since that 1st day at Yoga on Main in 2021. I have always watched and supported my children over the years through out their sports from BaseBall, Basketball, Football, Gymnastics, Diving, Track, Cheer and now to no longer be on the sidelines watching them but to be on the Mat beside them taking the same Journey feels amazing. Yoga and my Yoga on Main community helped me stay grounded bringing peace and joy to my life as I became an empty nester this year.
Never did I dream I would become so passionate about Yoga and my practice but along with my daughter, I completed my 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training & Yoga Alliance Certification with Yoga Flow Pittsburgh.
When I am not on my mat you will find me working full time, walking, biking, baking or spending quality time with my family and friends.
