Bio

Lillian at Everest

Lillian found yoga at an early age and immediately recognized its many benefits. She fell in love with the practice and the way it enhanced her life both physically and mentally. She completed the 200-hour training at Yoga Vida in 2018 and further studied under the guidance of her mentor, Sangeeta Vallabhan. She currently has a E-RYT 500 Yoga Alliance designation.

Lillian’s classes are athletic and challenging, yet balanced, safe, and accessible to all. She believes that a mindful yoga practice extends beyond the mat and infuses everything we do. With that in mind, Lillian aims to have people leave her classes feeling stronger, calmer, and more connected to the world around them.

In 2018, Lillian climbed Mount Everest, completing the Seven Summits. She has run the New York Marathon ten times, has qualified for and run the Boston Marathon twice. She is the treasurer of The Practice Coalition, a non-profit dedicated to providing yoga for trauma to survivors of domestic and sexual violence and to taking care of the teachers who offer it. She is also the co-founder, with Shane Allen, of Humble Warrior, through which she co-organizes and co-leads retreats and teacher trainings around the globe. She holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering.
