My Story


I'm Lisa Ferraro and I empower yoga teachers & practitioners to connect to their true voice & the roots of yoga through Sanskrit, mantra and ritual.

Even as a musician & lover of language, when I first trained to be a yoga teacher, I found the language of Sanskrit waaaay too detail oriented and very VERY challenging.

I wanted to learn more but I felt like it was too much to handle. I yearned for a more authentic yoga practice and sharing of the practice of yoga but I knew I only had a taste of what it could be.

From my subsequent training with Russill Paul, (musician, mantra/Sanskrit teacher & mentor!) along with other teachers, I offer classes & trainings rich in yoga's history of sound with a passion to teach and share the joy that is Sanskrit, mantra & movement as a personal ritual for your daily life.

I am an ecstatic devotional singer, harmonium playing musician and a mantra-chanting yogini who loves to awaken others to their inner radiance.

I completed a 200-hour certification (ERYT200-RYT 500) at Laughing Lotus NY and a 300-hour certification with The Kaivalya Yoga Method. I have been studying Sanskrit, mantra and nada yoga with my mentor, Russill Paul privately and in his Yogic Mystery School for 13 years.


I also perform as an actress and singer, holds a BA in Music from Westminster Choir College and chant with my band, Sonic Bliss Kirtan.


I recently started Sonic Bliss Yoga School™ online, teaching the power of mantra and movement. I am the co-creator of Sutra Seeds 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training.

I empower yoga teachers and practitioners to embrace the roots of yoga through Sanskrit, mantra & movement!
