Lisa Mullaney holds a Master of Arts in Education from Mount Mary University, and a Graduate Certificate in Waldorf Education grades 1-8 from Great Lakes Waldorf Institute. She is also a Licensed Massage Therapist and Registered Yoga Teacher who has been providing therapeutic massage and movement re-education for over 22 years. Her decades of experience as an educator and a healer are woven together by her interest in sharing knowledge and practices that lead to healthier, more connected, and more meaningful lives. She is very happy to be working with RESET, teaching mindfulness tools to young people.
A student of mindfulness, yoga, and the healing arts since 1995, Lisa trained in therapeutic massage in her hometown of Denver, Colorado. She practiced Buddhist meditation and martial arts during her undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin, and later immersed in the study of Kundalini yoga in San Diego, California where she also practiced Non-Violent Communication, and trained as a labor and postpartum doula. She went on to earn her Hatha Yoga teaching certificate in a summer intensive in Daramshala, India. Life’s adventures eventually returned her to Milwaukee, where she began teaching at the post-secondary level before falling in love with elementary education.
Lisa is drawn to the path of service, and has worked in many rewarding roles, including, most recently, guiding a class of Waldorf students from 1st through 6th grade. She currently practices therapeutic massage and myofascial release for corporate and individual clients, as well as within a residential drug and alcohol treatment facility. She previously served as an in-home and traveling caregiver for those living with quadriplegia and terminal illnesses, volunteered as an on-call labor support doula for uninsured and undocumented women on the border, and worked as a massage therapist for those living with HIV and AIDS. Her professional experiences have gifted her with a respect and reverence for the many paths of human unfolding.
