    You are a true inspiration to all who want to practice mindful, meaningful, and healthy living. Thank you for all your work in the yoga community and in the CRON community. I just discovered your site and hope to spend some time learning yoga, thanks to your positive example.
    Thank you,

    We spoke several years ago. I purchased the software program your father created and wondered if there was a newer version. I have it on a CD. I think your father was a true visionary and he was a hero of mine.

    Hi Lisa,
    Will you be offering you ABC of Abdominal Integration, Alignment and Support class in the near future? I am sorry to have missed it yesterday (Feb. 16th) at Iyengar Institute.

      Hi Simone
      I have not immediate plans to teach this again, but the material was very well received, so we probably will schedule another workshop. Thank you for your interest!

    I am a geriatric-trained physician and am writing a book about aging. How could I contact you for a potential interview?

    Hi Lisa. I was wondering, how long have you been on a CRON diet?

    Namaste Lisa. I have admired, respected, and studied the seminal work your father carried out, and the brilliant contribution to our health you did in the DWIDP. Your expertise in yoga, nutrition, and computer programming is astonishing, to say the least. I purchased every book authored by your Dad, and every version of your software since 1989 (floppy disks, etc). It so happenst hat the 2.0 version (CD) is not running in the Windows 10 I installed two days ago. The note that comes back says, in Spanish (I live in Venezuela), “NO SE PUEDE EJECUTAR ESTA APLICACIÓN. Para buscar una versión para su equipo, consulte con el editor del software”. In brief, it cannot be installed and ask I contact you. I use your software when I teach the importance of vegetarian nutrition in yogic lifestyles. Can you help me? Thanks in advance. Vlad (By the way, I teach Kripalu yoga and own a yoga studio in Maracaibo. More about us in http://www.yogakaruna.org)
