In this week's episode, we had the fortune of speaking with Dr. Lisa Holland, PT, DPT. Lisa was so kind to take time out of her busy schedule as a physical therapist and as the "Belly Guru" to share her story with us.

A little bit about who Lisa is:

Dr. Lisa Holland is a Doctor of Physical Therapy that utilizes an integrated approach to her work.  With over 22 years of experience within the fields of physical rehabilitation, fitness and sports medicine, she has focused the last decade on mind body healing of pain and the strategic use of classical yoga, lifestyle support and health coaching.  For the past 11 years, her company Belly Guru LLC has offered a variety of cash based, primary care women's health services in a flexible private practice model that now includes professional mentoring and an online training center.   Lisa embodies the opportunity physical therapists have to expand the profession into regularly helping people overcome the biopsychosocial disability brought on by detrimental stress, unhealthy behaviors and persistent pain.
