About Lisa Murphy


I grew up in small town Iowa, earned a degree from the University of Iowa in actuarial science, and logged 12 years in corporate America, most recently as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for a reinsurance company, before moving to Dubai in 2003. The next ten years I spent traveling the world teaching yoga and studying meditation and Eastern philosophy, which changed the trajectory of my life.

After repatriating to Kansas City in 2012, my transition left me feeling unstable and seeking grounding. Amidst much uncertainty, I immersed myself in my passions: cooking, practicing yoga and spending plenty of time on the meditation cushion. With a renewed self-awareness, I recognized that yoga has benefits well beyond sculpted arms, that meditation calms and empowers your mind, and that being true to yourself is the only way to achieve ultimate success and happiness.

Experienced in teaching cooking classes, leading international yoga events and conducting corporate stress management seminars, I now combine my passions with my business background. I design customized health and wellness programs, including diet, exercise and mindfulness coaching for individuals and organizations, teaching mindful practices for healthy living.


My vision is to help and inspire others to improve their health and well-being.


My mission is to provide customized nutritional guidance, healing movement and mindfulness practices to educate and support individuals and employees of organizations, empowering them to live meaningful lives and attain optimal health and wellness.

An avid traveler, former stressed-out corporate sales executive, yogi and foodie, I practice a compassionate, holistic approach to health and wellness.  I look at the whole picture, how all areas of your life are connected:  job, family, relationships, sleep, eating and exercise habits and physical and mental concerns. We will work together in a positive manner to determine a personalized health and wellness program that is flexible, functional and sustainable.

Whether you are recovering from a sports injury or physical trauma, trying to balance family and work life, wanting to lose weight or manage stress, schedule a consultation to develop healthy eating, body awareness, and mindfulness, so you can start feeling and living better today.
