Hi, I am lisa. I am the creator of nicepipes
I am a fitness instructor, a decade-long yoga student, and for seven years I worked on the corporate side at YogaWorks. I’m pretty funny most of the time, sensitive in all the good and bad ways, and introspective when I take the time to be quiet.
I am a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and now a CEO. I care very much about what goes into my body, but I didn’t always. I have incredible attention to detail when I want things to be a certain way, and I can be passionate to a fault when I believe something to be true. I strive to be physically & mentally fit. I am a sunshine & outdoor enthusiast, an avid Juice Press club member, and an exceptional martini maker.

I was inspired to create the first pair of pipes on a chilly morning walking to the studio. Teaching yoga & running around the city in the cold weather required some seriously warm layers and my cropped yoga pants were not cutting it. I didn’t want to buy a new workout wardrobe but I also didn’t love the feel of wool or acrylic legwarmers after a sweaty workout.
I thought that if I had this problem, others must too & I wanted to find a solution. So, I designed nicepipes – leg & arm warmers made from the same, awesome, sweat-wicking fabric as yoga pants so that I could have the option of wearing them before, during, and after class.
When I wore my pipes to the studio, so many teachers and students wanted a pair, and asked if they could buy pipes for their friends. Eventually, I decided to leave my job and start my own business!
