Lily RussoRegistered Yoga Teacher
Lily Russo (E-RYT 500) is a Durango, Colorado-based yoga instructor, artist, and event producer. She has been practicing yoga for most of her life, which has served as a tool of transformation, health, and empowerment. Russo has a degree in international studies and human rights in Latin America from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and studied yoga through the Shambhava School of Yoga. Her initial practice of yoga asana led her to study all the other facets including pranayama, meditation, and yoga’s sister science, ayurveda, as well as other influential disciplines, primarily Buddhism, the Tao, and plant medicines.
She attended the Shambava School of Yoga in 2008 for her initial training, and in 2015 completed a Prana Vinyasa training led by Monica Mesa, developed by visionary Yogini Shiva Rea. As a frequent traveler, she’s been blessed to have studied with many incredible teachers around the world. Her teaching style is influenced by Prana Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Anusara, and others.
