Lillie Wolff, RYT 200, grew up dancing and began studying yoga in 2003. She earned her degree in Human Development and Social Relations from Kalamazoo College in 2004. Lillie began teaching yoga in 2006 after completing the 200-hour level Tantric Hatha Union/Yoga Teacher Training program with Sandra Carden in Lake Leelanau, MI. In 2009 Lillie travelled to Mysore, India where she spent two months practicing daily at the Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute and two months studying with international yoga teacher and yoga therapist, Noah McKenna. Lillie has attended workshops with many senior American teachers including Sandra Anderson, Rama Jyoti Vernon, and Rod Stryker. She completed the Sangha Yoga Teacher Training in 2010 and continues to study with Sangha Yoga Director, Karina Ayn Mirsky.Depending on the needs of her students, she draws from her experience with and knowledge of various styles and traditions including Tantric Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Anusara, Yin Yoga, Vini Yoga, and Para Yoga, making her classes integrative, intuitive, deep, and therapeutic. Lillie's classes incorporate creative imagery, clear verbal and visual instruction, and a sense of humor, and empower students to develop or deepen their own sadhana (self-directed home practice). Lillie feels that her highest purpose as a yoga teacher is to offer a safe and open environment in which her students can not only increase flexibility, strength, and concentration, but also find equanimity, and discover a sense of their own presence and inner-strength on and off the mat. Lillie is a registered teacher with the Yoga Alliance.

Lillie's teaching schedule through December 17th, 2014:

Yin Yoga

Wednesdays 6:45 - 8 p.m.

Sangha Yoga | 157 S. Kalamazoo Mall | Suite 140

 

The practice of yin yoga provides the perfect balance to your active (yang) yoga practices and your busy life. Focusing on long-held floor poses combined with breath work and meditation, yin yoga goes beneath the superficial muscles to target the dense connective tissues of the body – often in the hips, pelvis, and low back – which are difficult to open and can result in both limited flexibility and stagnant energy. This deep practice is gentle, yet intense, helping students not only to open the body, but also to cultivate the ability to observe and stay with sensation. All levels welcome.

A message from Lillie:

After December 17th, 2014 I will be taking a sabbatical from teaching yoga for 6-12 months. If you would like to be notified of future classes with me, please send me an email to lilliewolff@gmail.com. Also, please join me for a free class at Sangha Yoga on Sunday, December 21st from 12-1:15pm.

Thank you and I wish you all best in practice and in life.

Your friend in Yoga,
Lillie
