Known by appreciative students across the country as “the queen of alignment,” yoga instructor and author Lillah Schwartz brings the benefits of her 30+ years’ training with yoga experts, like BKS Iyengar, Aadil Palkhivala, Eric Small and others to the Southeast region and, through her workshops, to studios across the eastern and central
“Lillah has both the knowledge and the passion to fulfill her mission of helping others on the path towards Dharma, the very reason for the practice of yoga. I recommend Lillah with all my heart.”
– Aadil Palkhivala, Purna Yoga founder and author of Fire of Love.
Her hundreds of hours of study in the and India with senior Iyengar instructors, makes Lillah one of the most accomplished yoga teachers in the Southeast region. She pioneered the Iyengar method in North Carolina from 1981- 2009, and held an Iyengar teaching certificate for 23 years. Lillah brings the science and spirit of Yoga Wisdom to thousands who have become pain-free from her alignment-based instruction.
Never more at home than in front of a group of students with diverse body issues, Lillah pulls a hip back by one inch here, has a student turn a foot out two percent there, and suddenly a miracle happens: the entire class is breathing together in the quiet joy of pure being. In this way, yoga becomes truly therapeutic and does its work of healing and nourishing a myriad of complex conditions and body needs. It is also at this place of alignment that the deep spiritual work of yoga begins.
