Yoga Instructor, E-RYT 500

Hillary is first and foremost a dedicated student of yoga, which is what she derives all of her teachings from. Hillary holds the highest certification with the Yoga Alliance, 500 Hour E-RYT, travels internationally as a yoga teacher trainer and also teaches private and public classes in Dallas, TX, where she currently lives.

Hillary first began practicing yoga almost ten years ago and considers it to be the foundation of her healthy lifestyle. Her studies of yoga began, like most, as a physical practice, but not long after she began to notice the other positive effects the practice had on her life. Learning to live yoga on and off the mat, Hillary decided that she wanted to share this wonderful practice with others.

In 2009, Hillary began her teaching journey and has been teaching ever since. A true student of life, she took training after training, and eventually pursued a long time goal of hers by traveling to India to study yoga. Although it was one of the most difficult trips of her life, for the first time ever she felt that she had space in her head, and was happier than she had ever been. Upon returning from India, she began teaching again, and is now living her dream of being able to spread yoga, health, peace and happiness to all that she encounters.

Hillary has studied many different lineages of yoga including Sivananda yoga with Swami Govindananda at the Amboli Ashram in India, Vinyasa Flow with Internationally celebrated yoga teacher Seane Corn and most recently Ashtanga Yoga with many wonderful teachers, most notably, David Swenson.

Although Hillary teaches primarily from the Ashtanga lineage, her teaching style encourages students to find their own depth in the practice. She helps guide students through the asanas, but knows the real internal work must be done by the students themselves. Hillary teaches to all levels, meeting her students without judgement, right where they are today. She strives to help students see that the only limits they have are themselves, knowing that ultimately we are the only thing standing in our own way.

Hillary’s teachings continue off the mat in many ways. Hillary currently teaches yoga to middle school students in under-served communities. She has been working on bringing not only a steady yoga practice to the students, but also the importance of breath, focus, and goal setting. Hillary also serves on the Leadership Team of Dallas Pets Alive! where she works to save homeless dogs and cats in and around Dallas area.

Hillary travels as a Teacher Trainer for Global Yoga Shala, an International Teacher Training Company, specializing in 200 HR and 500 HR Yoga Teacher Trainings and Yoga Retreats. Hillary also currently teaches many workshops, public, private and corporate classes, primarily in the Ashtanga lineage. When Hillary is not traveling or teaching she enjoys being at home with her husband, Keith, and her dog, Jack, and her cats, Gypsy and John (who’s a girl).
