Our Vision

We imagine a world where a person doesn't need to recover from their childhood. A world in which all beings are valued for who they are, cultures are respected, and all voices are heard. 

We can co-create this world by first attending to our own  preconceived notions and personal belief systems - by resolving our inner roadblocks which prevent us from being fully present with, capable of seeing, hearing, and accepting of others.  

Lisa McNett, Founder

Driven by faith and a need to fulfill her life’s purpose, she is a visionary leader who carries and shares ancient wisdom.  Lisa is incarnated at this time to assist humanity's transition into a New World.

Lisa has always been an anomaly.  She has experienced extremes throughout her life, as she continually pushes her personal boundaries and perceived limitations. Lisa has also lived through—and overcome—the extremes of trauma and addiction. She believes that through healing our trauma, knowing who we are, and embodying our truest selves, we become more present—and presence is the greatest gift we can give to ourselves and others.

Andy McNett, Guest Teacher

believes that by harnessing the power of the breath, we have the ability to unlock our ‘true’ potential—physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. As a contributor and content creator for OBI, he is grateful for the opportunity to serve others on their individual and collective journeys of healing and growth. Andy has been a lifelong student of the intricacies of the human body, and currently teaches a series of classes entitled, ‘The Breath: Anatomy, Physiology and Kinesiology’ at OBI. 

While studying at Florida Gateway College in 2010, Andy began working as a tutor at the office of Disabilities Services. It was there that he discovered the valuable role of occupational therapy (OT), involving adaptive learning strategies, cognitive-based therapies, and engagement in meaningful activity during learning and healing processes.  This led him to pursue a degree in OT, motivated by an ongoing fascination with the human nervous system and holistic healing methods.

Sarah Forristal, Breathwork Facilitator

Sarah is a breathwork facilitator and holistic therapist, specialising in massage therapy and reflexology. Creative and curious, Sarah studied art after leaving school and then went on to train in bodywork. Immersing herself in Chinese medicine theory and the practice of yoga, qigong and meditation opened up a connection to the internal landscape of the body. Through her training with a Daoist master she learned to become aware of the subtle layers and to see life and nature in a new way.

‘I felt drawn to breathwork and after hearing the call repeatedly I first trained in pranayama techniques and then found One Breath Institute. Breathwork training with OBI opened a door of discovery through which I am continuously learning.’

Renee Kreienbrink, Breathwork Facilitator

I was born in Ocala, FL and then went on to live in Birmingham, AL where I trained as a Licensed Massage Therapist in 1999.  I then moved to Sarasota, FL and earned my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing at the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL in 2005.  As an RN I have worked with patients in multiple settings.  I've worked with veterans in the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital, cardiac patients at Sarasota Memorial Hospital and then with inmates in the Marion County Jail.  I didn't hate the field of nursing, but I was disheartened.  When I stepped into the world of allopathic medicine, I had high hopes but immediately felt that something was missing, yet I couldn't name what it was.
