Rising Stars: Meet Tami Lysher

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tami Lysher. 

Hi Tami, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
For more than 35 years, I had a dual career. I have had many roles in the field of Early Childhood Education, from child care owner, child care director, an administrator for a non-profit profit organization that served low-income families. I also taught Early Childhood Education (15 years) classes for University Michigan Flint. During the same time, I taught group fitness classes, spinning, yoga, pilates, and children’s yoga class. As well as training teachers motor development to early childhood staff. 

In 2018, I opened Studio T Pilates in Grand Blanc. Currently, I teach private sessions in the studio and math classes via zoom. In February 2020, I left my full-time job to pursue the studio on a full-time basis. I closed for about 6 months in 2020. 

I full transition the studio online. During that time, I start writing curriculum for children, Mindful Movement for Childre, adults, Trauma-Informed Movement, A beginner’s guide for Movement Educators: Demystifying the Trauma-Informed Movement. 

I have been a breast cancer survivor for 16 years. 

I have written a program for breast cancer survivors. 

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I would call them obstacles, divorce in 2002, 2005 unexpected death of my ex-husband, 2006 breast cancer, Remarried 2007 

During this time, I started teaching trauma education on different levels, which is where my strong interest in how impacts individually and collectively. Especially now since covid has occurred. 

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I specialize in trauma-informed movement I use movement as a modality to help individuals reconnect to their bodies, mind, nervous system, and movement. I am extremely proud for my deep work with trauma. Being an advocate for trauma education in the movement industry. 

All of the courses are delivered online, are researched-based, and the health implication of trauma and movement. (This would be easier for me to talk in more detail). 

What set me apart from others is the connection between trauma and move meant. I have yoga, teachers and personal trainers take the course. 

I also host weekly, Instagram live, Embracing Change talking through Trauma.
