Hi! I'm Lisa. I've been working for Urban Tailz for 2 years now. When I'm not walking all of my favorite four-legged friends, I am a yoga instructor as well as a musician. I am a 52-year-old Chicago native.

I have been teaching traditional Astanga yoga for 21 years in many studios, clubs, corporations, and private situations all over Chicago. I've taught celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow (when she was pregnant with Apple) and Doyle Bramhall (who I shamelessly flirted with because who wouldn't). I spent 11 months studying Astanga in places such as India, Phuket, and Bangkok which gave me wonderful perspective on life and other cultures. You can read about my adventures in India and Tokyo on my blogs India Dreams and Yoga Tokyo. You can find my main website at https://lisahillyoga.com/.

My other passion in life is music. I've been playing percussion and drums for over 30 years in a variety of musical situations with different groups. I've toured for many years and have recorded with Steve Albini.

While at home I enjoy baking bread, gardening, knitting, and spending time with my sweet pup Uma. I also enjoy biking year round. I love being active and love spending time with dogs, so working for Urban Tailz has been the perfect place for me!
