AboutLillian

Hi, I'm Lillian :)

I am a fitness and movement expert, emotional and communication coach, Yoga therapist, and mystic. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL and moved to San Francisco in 2007. I'm a 90's hip hop kid, turned jock, turned fitness head, turned Yogini. I was naturally drawn into the world of competitive sports at an early age playing street ball (basketball) and softball through high school.  During this time, I started to gain an appreciation for fitness and wellness as i knew it would enhance my competitive performance. Me being the person I am, I went all in. Everything about fitness, nutrition, and wellness clicked for me and I wanted to keep digging deeper. From there, I began working in gyms and was a total "gym rat" through my teens. When it was time for college, my path was already clear and I began my studies in Kinesiology and Exercise Physiology at the University of Illinois in Champaign.      

By the time I completed my degree, I was personal training, teaching group fitness, and managing fitness programs. I have gone through many phases (life and career), from body building to refusing to lift weights, group ex nerd to opening a small personal training studio. After years of being immersed in the fitness industry, something seemed to be missing. I realized I was ready to deepen my Yoga practice. Everything clicked for me once I started my Yoga teacher training. It all deeply made sense to me. How everything is connected, how the mind and emotions are so strongly linked to the physical body, and how they manifest stress, love, joy, etc. I wanted to dig deeper, so after my 200hr, I went on to complete my 500hr and Yoga Therapy certifications. Yogic philosophy and exploring mind/body connectivity has helped me integrate my fitness background, one on one practice, group classes, and personal life to the next level. Fast forward to today. Whether I am working with a client one one one, or teaching a SOfit group session, all of my work revolves around getting you fit as well as healing and transforming you through movement, Yoga, and self discovery.
