Lily Peifer took her first yoga class at age 13 and never wanted to stop. Lily loves the way that yoga helps her get out of her head so that she can think more clearly. She continues to use yoga to help others connect with their own inner strength and wisdom, which are too often smothered by anxieties, perfectionism and self-judgments. Lily strives to learn something new each time she practices yoga, facing the world and herself with gentle curiosity. Her style incorporates a balance of playfulness and steadiness.
Lily earned her 200-hour certification through the Asheville Yoga Center in 2011, and became a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) through Inner Peace Yoga Therapy in 2020. Lily is also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker working in community mental health in Chicago, IL.
