 “After my very first back care class with Lillah, I knew I had found the way to healing my own intense low back pain and sciatica. With her compassion for those in pain and with physical limitations, she guides her students with constant care and accuracy in the alignment of their own bodies. Her knowledge of the human body and how all the systems work together to create a whole body and mind is a constant amazement to me.” 

—Tracy Pace


“I believe that yoga invites us to know ourselves better, seek out the physical and emotional resistances within, and bring expanded consciousness to our life: to shine light on the dark places. This journey requires focus and effort. I see my role as helping students love themselves and discover their inner potential. Yoga develops in us the strength to grow and change, the ability to know when to let go and when to hold fast, and how to use our mind and our heart to craft a meaningful life.”

—Lillah Schwartz
