Being guided by her India Satguru, Her Holiness Amma Sri Karunamayi, Lily’s deep & profound inner journey has allowed her to synthesize the knowledge gained from her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology & Energy Healing Training, with the deep revelations born from her intensive meditation & yogic practices. Lily’s yearning for yoga has brought her to seek out its True Essence; it’s essential nature of being and the timeless wisdom that embodies these sacred teachings. While integrating this knowledge or vidya to offer a holistic approach that addresses the modern world, Lily focuses on Yoga as living; our awakened state, our True Self.
Along with her love for the mystic poets, dance, art, music, & sacred pilgrimages throughout India and Asia, Lily shares the multiple ways that our divine nature expresses itself both through the teachings & in our daily lives. Lily is honored to have worked with her dear friend Kate Potter on the Yoga T.V. & D.V.D series Namaste, and as well as produced her own Yoga Nidra CD’s as tools for meditation, health & wellness, and awareness training. She has also developed specialized Yoga programs for various populations: professional athletes, senior groups, and men & women of all ages. Lily’s special interest lies in Meditation, Advaita Vedanta, Mantra & Tantra, Bhakti Yoga, and Yoga Nidra.
Over the last 16 years she has been influenced by many great traditions & practitioners; which include teachings from the Hatha, Vinyasa, Power, Yin & Restorative approaches to yoga asana, as well as the chakra & self-inquiry approaches to spiritual awakening. She has fully dedicated herself to her spiritual journey and currently spends extensive time in retreat every year in remote forest ashrams in India, practicing silent meditation and serving those in need.
Yoga with Lily aspires to ignite our awakening from within and guide us to live from a place of truth, compassion, & peace.
