“Lila Yoga is the mindfulness interplay of energy at any given moment. Through the exchange of physical and subtle energy, Lila Yoga connects us to the web of energy within the body/mind and throughout the cosmos. By recognizing that both our body and mind affect this interplay of energy, Lila Yoga unites the physical and mental practices of yoga (hatha and raja).” ~Erica



are holistic vinyasa practices that aligns our body, our breath, & our intentions.

Each posture becomes an opportunity to awaken, explore, and unite with a specific state of being. Class typically include invigorating vinyasa that ignites warmth, deeply focused individual postures, and finish with a nourishing savasana. The result is pure REFRESHING ENERGY within a strong body, calm mind, & peaceful heart.

LILA YOGA focuses on acknowledging and uniting with the larger rhythms of life and the interplay of energy at any given moment.
