My name is Lisa Davidson and I am Yoga & Fitness expert and Masters runner living in downtown Toronto.

I was introduced to the world of health and fitness at a young age when I  ran on my school track team and started dancing. After many years of competing in dance, I turned professional and performed with a variety of companies around the world. Once I said goodbye to my performing days, I fell in love with yoga and fell back in love with running.

My passion for yoga brought me to Downward Dog where I completed my teacher certification, which was followed with a certification to teach Jock Yoga by its founder Michael Decorte. Finally, after those two trainings I completed my group fitness training and my spin training. Drawing on my enthusiasm for running, yoga and dance, in my classes you can expect to work up a sweat, build your strength and increase your stamina. In addition to teaching athletically challenging classes, I also enjoy teaching yoga specifically for runners.

I believe in the importance of both a mental and physical well-being for leading a happy and healthy life. When I am not on the mat or hitting the pavement to train for my next race, I strive to inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle, starting with my amazing son.

Since 2008 I have run a plethora of 5ks,10ks, half marathons and two marathons, and I have no plans of stopping any time soon! In addition to running and yoga, I love snowboarding, and hitting the gym to cross train. I love shopping for fitness clothes and could easily spend too much money on the latest Nike and Lululemon leggings, but when it comes to “regular” clothes I am often picky and overwhelmed! I love baseball and football, not that I don’t enjoy other sports like hockey or basketball, but baseball and football are my favourites. During baseball season I spend a lot of time at the Dome…sorry Rogers Centre, it will always be the Skydome to me 🙂 During football season you will find me wearing my Tom Brady jersey pretty much every Sunday.

What else? I love reality TV, I mean I really love reality TV….I’m trying to do something about it.  Everything else I am sure will be revealed through my posts.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them!

  1. Hi Lisa,

    My name is Brittany and I’m a writer for Canadian Running Magazine. I am working on writing two yoga-focused articles for the web portion of the magazine, and I was hoping you’d be able to offer your expertise. The first article will be about a pre-run yoga sequence for runners, and the second will be about a post-run yoga sequence for runners.

    The articles will also highlight the importance of yoga for runners, the do’s and don’ts of yoga as it pertains to runners, and advice for runners who have difficulty with yoga.

    Would you be available to answer s few questions for me?

    Thank you,
    Brittany Hambleton
