Lillee Chandra, LMT, E-RYT
Lillee's yoga classes are often compared to a whole body massage experience. Lillee's movement proficiency stems from her background as a competitive gymnast, dancer and acrobat. Her dynamic sequencing, postural exercises and breathing techniques thrive on ceaseless anatomical curiosity. She inspires students of all abilities to dive in and empower themselves at the deepest tissue level.

Yoga Tune Up®

Yoga Tune Up® (YTU) is a system of yoga that blends therapeutic massage, corrective exercise and anatomy education with traditional yogasana. It seeks to rid the body of compensatory and dysfunctional patterns of movement, recharge or rehabilitate damaged or weakened tissue, as well as ease and relax over-worked and stressed areas of the body. The result is a challenging yet restorative workout that builds strength, awareness, flexibility and deeply releases body tension. You will be anatomically enlightened and kinesthetically inspired.
