    Instructor Biography

    Lisa Powers, Reiki Master & Teacher, B.Ki, B. Ed

    Since my youth, I have had a passion for holistic health. I pursued Kinesiology and Education degrees in University and after graduation continued to seek out ways to improve the health of myself and others as well as personal growth. I was introduced to Reiki almost 15 years ago, receiving my attunements and Reiki Master Certification and it has been an integral part of my life both personally and professionally ever since.

    Teaching is my passion and I am so grateful to be able to teach others ways to improve their health and life.

    I am so honored to have received a Top Instructor Award for 2015 from Udemy and will continue to do my very best to ensure students have a rewarding and meaningful experience in my courses.
