Interview with Yoga Instructor Lisa Banu

I am so blessed to know this lady and call her a friend. She is one of the sweetest , and has literally changed my life. I wanted to interview her to get some insight on why she loves yoga.

1. Could you tell me a little about yourself?

I have a life long fascination with beautiful, meaningful, tasty things. I studied architecture, got my PHD in philosophy , taught design history at Purdue, and now working on a cookbook for my daughters. I’m a nerd that loves to read, write , eat and cook.

2. How did you get interested in yoga?

I got interested in yoga by accident. There are still classes at Morton Community center near campus where my daughter took dance lessons. I saw the course and schedule and then thought I’d give it a try as a break from teaching and analytical thinking. I found myself happier after each practice.

3.What encouraged you to teach yoga?

Two reasons: I wanted to become more consistent with my practice and I wanted to learn about modifications that would help me keep practicing despite achy knees or a sore neck.

4.What do you think is the biggest health benefit with yoga?

The biggest health benefit is emotional. I feel lighter in spirit and body.

5.How has yoga changed your life?

Yoga has helped me be more self-aware. It has made me gentle with myself and others.
