Bio: Heather Lilleston
Originally from Northern California, Heather has been living and teaching Jivamukti Yoga in New York City since 2003. She completed the Jivamukti teacher training with Sharon Gannon and David Life while finishing her bachelors at New York University. She then completed her 800-hour Advanced Certification in 2008.
Her classes integrate creative vinyasa sequences with meditation, visualization and chanting, honeyed with uplifting music. Interweaving scripture from both the Yoga and Tibetan Buddhist traditions, her goal is to create a space for practitioners to realign themselves with conscious intention and physical presence, leading to both an inner and outer transformational experience. She is known for her sweetness, passion and authenticity.
She has studied with a myriad of teachers: Sharon Gannon, David Life, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Gurumayi, Geshe Michael Roach and Lama Christie McNally.
