Yoga & Health Coaching

How it Began

I had a career in advertising for about 30 years, editing TV commercials. I loved the creativity and adrenaline rush from the fast pace and insane deadlines. To relieve stress from the day I would either drink a couple of glasses of wine or go for a run or take a hot yoga class. I really enjoyed the way I felt during and after the yoga classes. I found I got that same “runner’s high” I obtained on my long runs with less impact on my knees. After completing my first (and last) marathon in November 2005, I decided to run less and devote more energy to yoga, increasing my practice, to 4-5 times per week. 

After several months of practicing, my muscles were leaner, longer, and stronger and my mind was calm and more focused. I was less stressed. What began as a way of staying healthy and fit soon transformed into devotion and a way of life. In 2005, I started yoga teacher training and over the years, worked towards my 500 hr. Yoga Teacher Certification. I would edit TV commercials by day and teach yoga early mornings and on weekends to achieve my ERYT (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher). I became even more intrigued with nutrition and its effect on the body. In 2010, I decided to go back to school and enrolled in a program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and in 2011, I received my Certification as a Holistic Health Coach. I started dreaming of a place I could build, where people could find yoga & nutrition under one roof. Later that same year, I got an abrupt wake-up call from the Universe and was let go from my editing job. I was stunned and scared but trusted the universe and knew it was time to stop dreaming and start doing.

In 2012 with the help of my family and my 401K, I opened BalancingEnergy Health & Yoga Center in Dallas, Texas. We built a great community over the 10 years in business offering yoga, infrared sauna sessions, and nutritional coaching. We sold the studio in 2021 and I launched BalancingEnergy Health & Yoga Wellness online in 2022. It’s been quite a journey but I’m ready for this chapter as I know the Universe guides and provides!

About Lisa

I’m very passionate about health, nutrition, and exercise but that wasn’t always the case. Growing up in the late 60’s and 70’s, I could have been the poster child for junk food and my gut and digestive tract (the epicenter for health) were being abused. At 19 years young my indigestion was so dreadful, I decided to eliminate all fried foods from my diet. It helped my gut but unfortunately, I also had problems digesting dairy. In my late 20’s a doctor suggested I remove all dairy from my diet and even though it was challenging, I was amazed at how much better I felt. No more bloat, pain and running to the bathroom.

As the years went by, my diet wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t the healthiest, either. Fast forward to my mid 40’s and early 50’s and along comes the stages of natural menopause with fluctuating hormones and severe mood swings. Let me preface by saying, my experience with menopause was uncomfortable with irritability one minute then crying the next, but it wasn’t as severe as what many women go through with hot flashes, incontinence, insomnia, anxiety/depression, etc. Many of my girlfriends were also experiencing “the change” and figured there was no way getting around the weight gain and irritability and pretty much accepted that, “that’s just the way it is”. I was to determined to take a different approach and intuitively felt I could make things better through diet, lifestyle and acupuncture. At age 46, I became a Yoga Teacher and a Nutritional Health Coach at 50. 

Why am I confessing all this? Well since becoming certified in Hormone Health it has become clear to me that there is a complex link between Gut Health and Hormones. And there are studies to prove it. With my experience as a Nutritional Health Coach, specializing in Hormone Health, I’m looking forward to helping people change their life, by helping them identify potential hormone imbalances that can be addressed through diet and lifestyle. 

I’ll be adding new articles on my blog pertaining to Gut and Hormone Health that I think you will find helpful. And if you are feeling like you could use support now, check out the link below. You don’t need to struggle any longer!

Testimonials

What our clients say

“Before I started working with Lisa, I suffered daily with digestive upset. I had already seen a Gastroenterologist who prescribed a medication with terrible side effects so I was looking for an alternative. With Lisa’s guidance, I learned to eat foods that work with my body, not against it. This journey has been most enlightening and the results have truly been life-changing. I am so grateful to Lisa for her knowledge and caring commitment to help me find a real solution. People comment that I look better. I know I feel better!”

-Deanna T.

“I came in with very general expectations of learning to eat healthier but was amazed to see what would soon be uncovered. I have gained a lot of knowledge from Lisa and her gentle guidance has encouraged me to start new healthy habits and curb bad ones. The whole process has helped me to get to know myself better and understand how diet, energy, emotions, stress, work, family, exercising, etc., are all tied together. Lisa provides useful information on all types of topics and encourages you to consider and try new things. Although I’m not all the way through the journey, I am astounded by the impact that it has had on my life. I feel better, I look better and I believe I have better tools to keep me in the balance going forth. I can’t imagine that anyone would not benefit from this experience!.”

“During my program, I lost 14 pounds, my skin has a healthy glow, I have more energy and strength, and I am no longer a stress-eater! BalancingEnergy helped change my focus from the end goal to the journey. Whenever I fell short of my own expectations, Lisa would always remind me of how far I’d come. I’m excited and my life is much more balanced.”

-Dena M.

“I am not overweight and I work out regularly, but I needed that extra boost in my life. That’s when I decided to contact Lisa for nutritional help. Before meeting with Lisa, I had no desire to cook, and I was scared of the grocery store. I ate out a lot and noticed I had issues with certain foods, but never did anything about it. Lisa has helped me find what foods to avoid and foods to eat to help me feel better overall. She provided me with a shopping tour of whole foods and many, many amazing recipes! I have found myself cooking multiple times a week and I’ve even lost a few pounds! Everything I have learned has been so helpful and now I will have that knowledge for the rest of my life.”

-Jessica

“First, let me say if you are thinking about enrolling in this fantastic program… Stop thinking and do it! Lisa is truly one of the kindest and most honest individuals I have ever encountered. Through her support & guidance, this program holds endless possibilities for you. It is completely customized to the individual’s needs and goals. Busy schedule; no problem, can’t cook; Lisa is a great coach, afraid of veggies; she will find some that you cannot only tolerate but that you will truly enjoy! I have felt a tremendous shift. I’ve learned that my food choices reflect in how I feel. What I put into my body is exactly what I get back in terms of mood, attitude, and energy. This program is invaluable. The knowledge you receive will be yours for the rest of your life. Namaste.”

-Sarah

“I had a heart attack in October of 2017 which resulted in quadruple bypass surgery and luckily lived through it. I thought I was on the right track with the exercise but within three years I had more blockage which required a stent to be inserted into one of my major heart valves. I asked the cardiologist for help in keeping my heart clean (what will end this) and their answer was, to lower your LDL to 50 which required major food changes. I had been stealing food recipes from Lisa Breitenwischer’s BalancingEnergy Health and Yoga website and knew that Lisa was a Health Coach, so I called her for help. She had a nutrition program that was three months long. Lisa knows everyone is different and customizes her offerings for each person. She took me shopping, she explained to me what I needed to consume and how it would affect me nutritionally and how it would affect my clarity of mind and moods. She helped me remove 15 pounds of weight from my frame. But most of all, she taught me how to eat in the future so I can enjoy my life with stents in the past. I no longer have an appetite for bacon, sausage, cheesy Mexican foods, etc., and have no need for sugar. Comparing my lab results, before and after the three-month program with Lisa, my LDL Cholesterol value was at 51 from 63 and my good Cholesterol had gone from 46 to 55. This is an amazing chance for a person with a heart problem. Now that to me, is progress.”

-Roland

“Before working with Lisa at BalancingEnergy, I was so frustrated with “fad diets”. I felt fatigued and lethargic most of the time, especially after eating. I spent countless hours beating myself up about my eating habits and was often confused and overwhelmed with the endless amount of information regarding healthy eating. Now, I’m mostly at peace about my eating and have learned to listen to my body. I now know when and why my body is craving protein, sugar, or fat, and more importantly, I know the right choices to make when my body craves these foods. My favorite part of working with Lisa was her peaceful, gentle way of communicating; I never felt lectured or belittled for my choices. My entire family has benefitted from the recipes she continues to share. BalancingEnergy has created a lifelong change in my perception regarding diets vs. choices. Thanks to Lisa, I now have an open mind to healthy foods and balanced life!”

-Missy Desaloms

“If you would have asked me to describe my eating habits before I enrolled in the program I would have said healthy, balanced, with some sugar cravings, and a lot of caffeine to try and keep up with my active lifestyle. Through the process I have never felt like I was on a diet and Lisa made it very clear, that was not the purpose of the program. Now that I have been working with Lisa, I am able to make informed choices about what foods are best suited for my body and lifestyle. BalancingEnergy has changed my life in ways that I never expected. I feel good all the time, my cravings have significantly decreased, and my energy has increased which has allowed me to be even more active than I was before! Thanks, Lisa for helping make my life richer and full of vibrancy!”
