Owner/Instructor Leisa Hart is the driving force behind HART YOGA PILATES & SPA, the premier Yoga studio in Frisco. Hart is best known for starring in and choreographing 18 of the famous Buns of Steel exercise DVD’s which have sold over 6 million copies. The makers of Buns of Steel discovered Leisa Hart while competing in ESPN's Fitness America Pageant. Her dynamic performance has made her one of today's leading fitness experts.
Leisa blends her 31 years of fitness industry experience to offer a wide variety of classes from Yoga to Pilates as well as Fitness. “Variety is the spice to life and I feel it’s key to helping us reach our goals - physically, mentally and spiritually,” says Hart. “I also firmly believe that we are all unique in mind and body and my programming reflects that."
Her Buns paved success also incurred many obstacles, each mapping the way to the silver lining of relating to her audience on deeper levels. A hip fracture, back surgery and rheumatoid arthritis brought Leisa to low points that at times seemed unsurmountable. “I felt like I was drowning but knew I would come up for air soon by visualizing myself where I needed and deserved to be,” recalls Hart.
It was those moments that brought Leisa to the development of “R4: Rise, Respect, Reflect, Renew” - an inspirational wellness approach designed to transform lives in mind, body, spirit and soul. It is here at Hart Yoga that Leisa’s uplifting philosophy to health and wellness that has kept Leisa looking and feeling amazingly fit is fully revealed.
“We all need to arm ourselves to handle life’s challenges with finesse by de-stressing and re-charging, “ says Leisa. “I’m honored to be part of changing lives one breath at a time."
