Delisa Simpson is a natural born teacher who is passionate about helping others reach their highest potential. Whether it is in the classroom teaching elementary students or in a yoga studio teaching adults, she has the ability to make the beginner to the novice produce their desired results. Her confidence in others is what drives her passion for teaching. Delisa knows that everyone is far more capable than they could ever think or imagine. With this mindset, everything is possible with the right skills, mindset, and undying faith.
Delisa takes responsibility and pride for the concepts and skills she teaches so that those she teach can in turn take responsibility for their progress and realize that they can reach all of their dreams because they are the dreamers and creators of their dreams. This is demonstrated in her two immediate classes where she can help these students deepen their practice by first working the muscles that will be used to facilitate the more advanced poses. Also, in her two beginner classes where students unconsciously become familiar with their body awareness and range of motion.
Delisa’s other passions include various types of dancing. Dancing styles that include hip hop, salsa, line dance, and bachata. It is a passion to her because she believes dancing brings all cultures together where joy and happiness naturally occur without regards to race, sex, economic status, and skill level. Lastly, dancing incorporates active movement which is good for the body, mind, and soul.
Personal Mission Statement
My personal mission statement is do everything with love and integrity. These two characteristics to me are the foundation of anything worth having or worth attempting. Love is the foundation to all human life, the beginning, the middle, and the end. When there is love, it produces the outcome of win win situations and the initial transition of releasing fears while gaining an appreciate for all mankind. Integrity to me is the component that allows me to stand strong in my beliefs and stand firm when faced with life’s uncomfortable situations that test my faith in who I am.
