Natural Awakenings Dallas -Fort Worth Metroplex Edition


A Yoga Journey Inspired by Love

Sep 01, 2011 04:52PM

Lisa Ware's business in South Dallas,Yoga 4 Love, and her practice, Dynamic Yoga & Fitness Studio, as well as her active involvement in the yoga community all stem from a very special relationship with an inspirational woman—her mother.

“I've practiced yoga personally since I was 19, but after seeing my mother's battle with cancer and her gift to the community of bringing thousands of people to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, I knew I had to give back healing and wellness by teaching yoga,” says Ware. She had just begun her path to become a registered yoga teacher in 2008 when her mother passed away. “My life path changed and I poured all my energy and passion into sharing yoga with others.”

Following in her mother's footsteps, Lisa has become a powerful influence in her community, contributing her time and talents to DFW Free Day of Yoga efforts, the Earth Day Dallas yoga events, a new yoga and arts magazine called Origin, and a women's retreat program called Yoga for Inner Goddess.

Dynamic Yoga & Fitness Studio by Yoga 4 Love offers vinyasa flow hot yoga, with temperatures at 99 degrees and 70 percent humidity. “Even though newbies can be intimidated, it's very different from the Texas heat outdoors,” Ware says. “I call it a really blissful state.” The heat allows practitioners to access ligaments and muscles faster and deepen the effects of yoga, as well as offering physical and emotional detoxification.

“We focus on how to properly address what's going on in the body, mind and spirit, to have a beautiful final relaxation, find complete balance and a blissful experience that carries on for days,” Ware says. “After two, three, four times, people say it's the best practice they've ever had, and it becomes a lifestyle.”

The studio also offers Zumba, toning, hip-hop and specialty series, like belly dancing, burlesque, and tree yoga. They also maintain a spa with massage therapy, Reiki and Zen Thai bodywork. To benefit students, cancer survivors and unemployed people, special gratuity-based classes allow clients to pay on a sliding scale.
