Lisa Fernandez

Lisa Fernandez has a unique understanding of the community she proudly serves as an elementary school principal at P.S. 119 in Brooklyn, New York. Lisa’s mission has been to create a school that reflects the microcosm she created as a classroom practitioner—a space where children are heard, respected, and treated with dignity. Her commitment to the children in her school led her to become a yoga practitioner and certified instructor, and her passion for practice deepened her drive to bridge yoga practice and education. She teaches yoga to children and adults and "inspires others," according to one of her students in P.S. 119.
