Lilly Sarmiento Caruso
Lilly discovered yoga 20 years ago when she was searching for an antidote to reduce stress and manage her chronic back pain. She quickly realized that the healing benefits of yoga reached far beyond the physical and fell in love with the practice as she started to experience unexpected shifts. Her work in human services became more manageable and her pain gradually subsided. Finding yoga transformed Lilly’s life and beliefs in many positive ways.
In 2004, Lilly completed her 200HR YTT and has since continued to study and train extensively with various yoga and meditation teachers, including Rolf Gates, Shiva Rea, Shawn Corne, Johnny Gillespie, Josh Summers, David Nichtern and many other local and internationally recognized teachers.
Taking a special interest in maintaining back health, she has completed several programs focusing on principles of alignment, biomachanics as well as yoga for relieving back and hip pain. Lilly has worked closely with physical therapists to bring components of PT to her own practice and teaching style. Most recently, she completed her 300HR Advanced YTT through Metrowest Yoga.
Lilly’s classes develop organically, depending on the students’ needs. With careful attention to alignment, breath, present moment awareness and core integration, Lilly guides her students to move from their center to find the essential balance between strength and mobility. Her classes are an invitation to play and create space for self-reflection. Sharing the gift of yoga has become one of her greatest joys and passions.
