Honoring The Fall Equinox as a Yogini

A time of transition and reflection. For more than 20 years I have honored the passing of the seasons with ritual. For these three days we are once again at a time of transition and reflection. An opportunity to let go of the past, honor the blessings of the present, and set our intentions for the future.  It seems to me no mistake that the the Jewish tradition of Yom Kippur occurs around this time, the day of atonement. This is a time where those who need forgiveness receive it and those we must forgive are again considered and with the help of grace, past events set to rest. This time of...

Personal Evolution and Positive Change thru Yoga

I continue to grow in my yoga practice and teaching, examining my own evolution and the potential for all of the students who may find me on their yoga path. For the past seven years there has been Sri Aurobindo Integral Yoga retreat held at Furman University in SC. The four Indian families who sponsored the retreat invite exceptional teachers from the ashram in Pondicherry India to present. I have attended the retreat several times being introduced first to the lineage by Aadil Palhivala, one of my honored yoga teachers. During the course of this year’s time, we touched on many...

Develop Your Yoga Teaching Beyond Flow

Why do I say my Transformation Yoga Teacher Training will help you “deep and beyond flow”? Primarily because stillness is the balance to movement. We all know that movement heels by improving circulation, inviting our breath to expand, and relieving stiffness. Yet excessive movement in the wrong patterns can be detrimental to our well-being, just like sitting at a desk all day in one position can be detrimental. I invite you to watch my video, Why yoga with Lillah? Learning the anatomical alignment of poses will optimize the safety of the physical body working to harmonize us in...

How I became a back care specialist.

People may wonder, “How is it Lillah, that you became a back care specialist? And what makes you an expert in your field?” My study of yoga as a healing art begin in 1976 in Boston Massachusetts, which led me ultimately to the Iyengar method. Why yoga? because yoga connects the mind to the body and the body to our heart and soul. I believe we all seek connection, and through connection we find ease, contentment and peace. As my life was in need of all of those elements, yoga was the perfect endeavor. Not only did I need the mind-body element of yoga, but I needed physical balancing as well....

Prana and Mathew Sanford

One might doubt whether someone in a wheelchair could deliver a most profound experience of yoga, yet that is exactly what happened during my week of studying with Matthew Sanford in his home studio, Mind-Body Solutions, Minneapolis. As all dedicated yoga practitioners are destined to discover, how “yoga passes down thru time access to the magic energy of the spine. The spine is the organ of connection with life and the mind is the organ of disconnection,” according to Matthew. Patanjali said it this way; yoga is intended to reduce the fluctuations of the mind in order to reach union...
