Ms. Lisa Hecke was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. Her love for nature lead her to Northern Arizona University where she was proud to be a Lumberjack and earned a bachelor’s degree in parks and recreation management. She also had a 14 year career in programming and facilitating classes and events for diverse populations with a local municipality. Ms. Hecke is a certified Yoga teacher and has a great passion for teaching the art of mindfulness. She brings her mindfulness training into each of her classes and loves to see how the students respond. She was a long term sub here at New Way for a number of years before becoming one of our teaching staff. She is thrilled to be part of such an incredible team at New Way and expresses that there’s no other place she would rather be.
When Ms. Hecke is not in the classroom she leads an exciting life fostering animals and humans. She loves “giving back” when needs arrive. She also has a great love for yoga, kayaking, camping, photography and traveling. Her philosophy is “spread kindness”.
