One of Lila's great joys is to guide students into a space of true transformation, encouraging them to continually discover, honor, and gracefully reveal the deep potential that lies within through the brilliant practice of Yoga. Lila has practiced yoga and meditation for over twelve years, studying with excellent teachers and guides along the way. Upon encountering her spiritual teacher in 2000 at the age of 20, Lila's life profoundly changed, and she recognized the workings of Grace in a more real and palpable way than ever before. She had the blessing of meeting John Friend, her primary yoga teacher, just two years later, and through great dedication and love for the practice of Anusara, she became a Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher in 2005. Lila delights in offering yoga classes, workshops, immersions, teacher trainings, and retreats presently. In 2006, Lila founded Gateway Yoga in Raleigh, NC, a yoga studio dedicated to the life-affirming principles of Anusara Yoga. She has been part of the faculty at the American Dance Festival in Durham, NC, since 2008.
