The Metta Center for Yoga and Healing Arts is now located in the Roosevelt Neighborhood in Bellingham, WA.

We offer Yoga classes for all levels and abilities, including therapeutic programs of Yoga, Thai Yoga Therapy, Structurally Integrated Movement Therapy, and Pilates based methods. Between the two partners, John and Lise, there is a combined total of almost 40 years experience!

We dedicate our practice to Metta (loving kindness). Our services include compassionate touch, breath awareness and mindfulness and we look forward to sharing these gifts with you.

I have had many types of massage before but was not familiar with Thai Massage until I was introduced to it by Lise Waugh. I have never had a more healing massage in my life. Weeks later I can still feel the healing effects from the massage. From a car accident, over twenty years ago, I have had a chronic tightness in my left shoulder and neck. Since my Thai massage it has never felt better. This massage is like nothing you have ever experienced before, but it by far the best massage I have ever had. I highly recommend Lise’s Thai massage. – Mary Benarth
