Lisa SilvestroCertified Buti Yoga/ HotCore/Deep Instructor
Lisa completed her Buti Yoga Certification in 2019, less than a year after taking her first class as a member of the Kure community.

Hello my name is Corrie. I am a mother of two. They are my world, my everything. My children have watched my exercise routine their entire life.
