Lisa Weinert, RYT-200, created the debut annual Narrative Medicine program at Kripalu in June 2016, motivated by the healing and transformative power of storytelling. As an editor and publicist for the past 15 years, Lisa published and promoted hundreds of best-selling and award-winning authors and witnessed first-hand how the written word transforms lives. In 2011, Lisa launched Lisa Weinert Consulting, where she works directly with authors and digital publishers to design publishing programs and PR campaigns. She specializes in narrative nonfiction and literary fiction with a special interest in memoir, spirituality, health and social justice. Lisa is certified in both restorative and therapeutic yoga with Jillian Pransky where she learned how we all carry stories in our bodies. She teaches yoga at Twisted Trunk Yoga in New York City and curates workshops pairing yoga and writing called StoryFlow.
