The Instructor

Yogini Mitchell

Yoga has played such a transformative role in Lisa's life, and has been committed to sharing her passion with as many people as possible. She found yoga at the tender age of 19 when she was feeling stuck in an abusive relationship that left her feeing very defeated and extremely negative. Yoga allowed her to tap into her own inner strength, and since then, she has never turned back!

Lisa is the co-owner of Dana Hot Yoga, and is the Director of the Dana Hot Yoga 200 and 500 Hour Teacher Training programs. You can practice with her abroad on Yoga Retreats around the world, or come practice with her at all the Dana locations.

Lisa is the author of the books Don't Be an Asshole Yoga Teacher and 7 Secrets of a Successful Yoga Teacher (available on and was featured on the TV Show, Yoga Sutra Now on the Veria Network. She is a consultant for Young Living Essential Oils, and has been a contributing author for MindBodyGreen, Elephant Journal, and Greenster.

Lisa is an E-RYT 500 and has received yoga certifications from some pioneers in the yoga world, including Baron Baptiste and Sri Dharma Mittra. She has also learned from a variety of teachers including but not limited to David Garrigues, Kino MacGregor, Sharon Gannon, Kathryn Budig, and Sean Corne to name a few. She is also a doctoral level educator, and has conducted research on the benefits of using yoga as a tool to increase social reciprocity in students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

She invites you to share her passion for personal growth, physical movement and deep connection with our true selves by practicing her fun, yet meditative flows.

Sometimes plans change. We get it. That's why Trip Tribe offers a full refund if you meet any of the following criteria: (a) Your trip is over 240 days away OR (b) You booked within the last 30 days and your trip is still over 90 days from the start date. All payments except your deposit are refundable if your trip is more than 180 days away. If you do not meet any of these criteria, your booking is not eligible for a refund.


Trip Tribe requires only a deposit to hold your spot. Your balance will be paid in automatic monthly installments until full payment is due.


Trip Tribe makes it easy for you and your friends to book a room together. All you need is their email address.


While you can always book a private room with your guest, if you select a shared room, you'll be able to request a roommate after you place your booking.


Booking a shared room is cheaper and way more fun than booking your own private room. We’ll be sure to match you with someone awesome.
