Lisa Mills
Lisa Mills

My name is Lisa Mills & I am your online tutor. I am a registered school teacher (early childhood, special education, primary & secondary) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Arts & Drama; & a Graduate Diploma in Education.

I am bilingual in spoken English & BSL (British Sign Language) / Auslan (Australian Sign Language).

Deaf since birth, it wasn’t until my teenage years that I learnt to sign. It was the best thing I ever did as it enabled me to discover my deaf identity & learn ways to be proud of my deafness.

I have published a beautiful hardcover deaf awareness book 'Look at Me: Deaf Awareness' & a sign singing DVD for children called 'Sing & Sign with Lisa'. Both are popular resources! These are both available in my online store.

I am also married to a wonderful deaf man from England & we have two gorgeous hearing children 4y.o & 2y.o. Both children are growing up to be bilingual in sign language & English. In fact, both are said to be demonstrating very high communication, language & vocabulary skills for their age - thanks to sign language!

Sign language is a beautiful language & has opened many doors for my family & I. And, I anticipate that learning sign language will open new doors for you too.

To view my style of teaching for my Auslan / BSL video tutorials please click on this youtube link. This video clip is number 1 on Google rankings for Auslan fingerspelling. It has many views, likes & comments. Please note this is an Auslan fingerspelling video tutorial. However, if you are here to learn BSL Online, you too can benefit from this video because Auslan & BSL fingerspelling are the same. Do take a look!

I am also a trained yoga teacher with over 500hrs of training in Level 1 (200hrs) & Level 2 (300hrs) Yoga Alliance accredited courses. This training was predominantly in Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar & Hatha Yoga as well as Yoga Anatomy, Pranayama, Meditation & Ayurveda. In addition to this training I have completed Level 1 & 2 teacher training in Children's Yoga, Special Yoga (for children with disabilities) & Prenatal Yoga.

To view my style of teaching deaf yoga please click on this youtube link. This is a new video clip & is currently being very well received. It highlights ways to make yoga accessible to deaf people.

I trust that you will enjoy learning online with me. I take great pride in my training courses & like to deliver the best I can give. This website is a fantastic place to do online training with me and it is very user-friendly.

If you are in Australia, I am also available for special request group bookings. I have delivered many onsite training workshops for community, education & corporate groups. For more information about my face to face training workshops & retreats please visit my website www.honeybee-creations.com
