Upward Dog Yoga offers accessible yoga for all levels of practice. Please see the schedule for upcoming classes, which take place in community parks or via Zoom. A portion of all proceeds supports animal rescue organizations within local communities.
Yoga is a time honored tradition for taking care of your body, mind, and spirit. Whether you are stepping onto the mat for the first time, or are a seasoned yogi with years of experience, our goal at Upward Dog Yoga is to help you reach your goals in practice.
My name is Dr. Lisa McKenna, and I am certified yoga instructor credentialed at the 200 hour level with Yoga Alliance, and currently working toward the 500 hour level credential. I am also a licensed professional counselor trained in hypnotherapy. As the founder of Upward Dog Yoga, I am excited to share the benefits that yoga brings to mind, body, and spirit through our classes, consultations, and retreats. Personal wellness is a passion I've cultivated throughout my life and career. I earned my bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in psychology (1998, 2001, and 2003 respectively), and I've been licensed as a professional counselor since 2005. I currently work full time as a counselor educator in a university setting, where I find fulfillment in supporting the professional aspirations of counselors-in-training. It is a privilege and honor to bring my experiences and passion together to support you as you focus on your health and well-being!
Please don't hesitate to contact me so that we can discuss your wellness goals. I hope to partner with you soon!
Actually, not just dogs! Upward Dog Yoga is committed to helping local communities, and dear to our hearts is the plight of homeless animals. Meet Dawson, Liam, and Emily Ann pictured here - who were rescued from West Texas and North Texas. Their story has a happy ending - yet so many animals are in desperate need of loving homes. Shelters and rescue organizations rely on community support and donations to best serve these sweet lives! We are proud to pledge a portion of all proceeds to community animal service and rescue organizations. It is our privilege to help support these organizations and bring awareness to the need for fosters and adoptions of homeless pets.
For more information about supporting pets in your area, please visit your local animal rescue organization or visit the national ASPCA website.
