Summer is still heating up with our Students

Lili H. Not only a friendly face within our Balance community but also a recent grad of our Yoga Intensive Training!

We can thank her husband, Gary, for encouraging her to take up yoga in the first place…not initially sold on the idea, she like many of us, made excuses as to why it wasn’t for her!! Fast forward 4 years she gave it another go, this time solo, and what she found has lead her to the path she is perusing today 🙏🏻

How did YIT change your life? 

I had left my career in the Emergency Medical Field to raise my newborn twin girls and I felt as though I had lost the idea of what I was passionate about. It was a leap of faith and everything shifted. YIT reignited my fire, the passion I felt I had lost, helped me find my authentic self and healed me from the inside out. I love teaching. I love sharing the wisdom and truth behind the science of yoga. Things I never knew before my YIT training. I love what all parts of yoga can do for people and the healing energy it gives to the world.
