About Lisa

Lisa Samuels is a registered dietitian and yoga instructor based in Queens (Sunnyside, NY), though she has clients in Brooklyn, Long Island, and New York City, as well.  Lisa has helped many people lose weight, combat chronic disease, and ease the symptoms of depression with her knowledge and expertise in yoga and nutrition.  However, she still found that a certain number of clients were reverting back to old habits because they lacked the social support needed to implement and maintain all of the changes and hard work they endured.  And so, Project Happie was born.
