Women’s Online 5 Month Self-Discovery Yoga Immersion

Love going to yoga classes, but stumped on how to commit to a daily home practice?

Do you wish you understood the reason behind each of the poses, and how to sequence your own routine?

Do you feel like you get held back by fear, insecurities, judgement, and comparison?

Having a go-to daily yoga practice is what keeps me sane. Yoga has been a part of my life since my teenage years, but never before the past few years has it felt so necessary, my saving grace. Life as a self-employed mom of a three year old can be exhausting, and with so many things on my plate sometimes I feel like I would be a complete wreck if it weren't for my sacred, daily, yoga rituals of movement, meditation, breathing, and mindful eating informed by my knowledge of Ayurveda.

I've been teaching yoga for the past 11 years and have seen so many of my students hungry for more than what they get out of classes, but not necessarily interested in becoming a yoga teacher and going through a 200 hour teacher training. So I created a yoga immersion course designed specifically for women who love yoga and want to deepen their grasp and understanding of all it offers. This course is meant for women of any level, who know that yoga is about so much more than exercise, and are ready to more fully embody a yogic lifestyle , and have the knowledge and confidence to guide themselves in a daily practice. Studying the philosophy behind the practice opens up a whole new depth of self-discovery, and every time I have lead this immersion the women report major transformations in all aspects of their lives. Take it from Amelia who just completed my last Women's Self-Discovery Yoga Immersion:

"The Self-Discovery Yoga Immersion was everything I had hoped for. During the immersion I learned a lot about myself. I discovered unhealed parts of myself, patterns in my behavior, self-limitations, fears & resistances. I also discovered great strengths within myself. These strengths have helped me learn how to get to the other side of fear & how to heal in order to reach for my highest potential. I have gained a much higher confidence in all aspects of my life & become more comfortable going outside of my comfort zone. I have discovered that perhaps what I fear the most is my own potential in whatever endeavors I may choose to pursue. I have also found a deeper spirituality than has ever resonated with me before. I have developed deeper compassion & understanding which has allowed me more peace & acceptance. The most transformative part of the immersion has been the regular commitment to myself. I have learned that this self-care allows me to serve others & present myself in a much more meaningful way. Allowing myself space to sit with & face myself whole-heartedly has given me a whole new outlook on how I want to choose my experiences each day. Meditation has been an exceptional tool to find ease & acceptance during self-growth. The physical practice of yoga has helped me to stay grounded & focused on living from the heart & remaining open. Yoga has helped me maintain contentedness & joy. My moods and energy levels have become more balanced. Although the immersion has ended I know that this is really just the beginning of a lifelong journey.”

“I have been practicing yoga most of my life. It has been a tool of transformation, health, and empowerment since my teen years. My initial love of yoga asana lead me to study all the other facets including pranayama, meditation, and yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda, as well as other influential disciplines, primarily Buddhism, the Tao, and plant medicines. Through these studies I have come to understand that all systems of life is intricately interconnected, and practices which lead us to deepen our relationship with ourselves and the natural world create a life of harmony.  As a teacher my goal is to impart my love of these practices on my students, so that they may use them as tools towards achieving mental calm and clarity, as well as physical strength and grace."

Lily attended the Shambava School of Hatha Yoga in 2008 for her initial training, and in 2015 completed a Prana Vinyasa training led by Monica Mesa, developed by visionary Yogini Shiva Rea. Over the years she has participated in over 700 hours of teacher trainings.  She crafts unique classes based on the needs and abilities of her students, the time of day and year, and her intuition around what is energetically calling for attention in the moment.

Her other work as an independent artist allows her to channel her life force energy built through these practices into colorful works of creation. With her husband, she leads Fire Walks, another transformational tool of self empowerment.
