I am the founder of PurEnergy Fitness Center. When it comes to health and fitness, I have been there... and done it.

I stay on top of all the latest fitness research and incorporate what "works" into everything PurEnergy does. For me, health and fitness is more than an interest or a job - it is my life...

Namaste, I'm Lisa Amani


I am Lisa Amani. I have been teaching at PurEnergy since 2005. I discovered yoga at the age of three on public television. This led to my lifelong love and dedication to yoga, meditation practice, and education.  A few years after earning my BA in International Studies from the American University in Washington, DC; I decided to become a certified yoga instructor, in 1996. I have been studying and teaching yoga, in settings around the world, ever since. My mission is to get the best yoga education, from the world’s top yoga masters, and yoga schools; and to share that education with the world.  Yoga has saved my life more than once; most recently helping me survive the treatment I endured for Breast Cancer. I believe everyone should practice yoga; yoga will meet you where you are. I specialize in yoga and meditation, modifying yoga to meet students’ personal needs.  I emphasize the joy of living a yoga life: taking your practice off the mat and into your whole life.
