Lila Rasa Brown, E-RYT 500

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 thirteen years and had the great blessing of meeting John Friend, her primary yoga teacher, in 2002. She has been a Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher since 2005 and delights in offering yoga classes, workshops, immersion programs, teacher trainings, and retreats presently. Lila feels grateful to continue her studies with John Friend, along with other fantastic yoga teachers, scholars of Hindu Tantrism, and evolutionary astrologers Steven Forrest and Nancy Fantozzi. She also has a passion for practicing evolutionary astrology, weaving the magical and meaningful stories of Yoga into her readings. From 2006 to 2011, Lila directed 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.
