Hi I'm Lili Yogini, pronounced Lee Lee; Yogini pronounced Yo-Kee-Nee (female yoga practitioner) I'm also known as Leigh McCarthy, owner and teacher at Lili Yogini Yoga Studio.
My goal as a yoga teacher is to share what I know about the wonderful benefits of practicing yoga., to teach, train and guide our community, to bring the healing, relaxation and strength we connect to on our yoga mat, into the world!
Through my personal yoga practice, I have found strength, flexibility, stamina, self confidence, and peace of mind. I began practicing yoga as a means to controlling my anxiety disorder and chronic back pain.. While yoga certainly keeps those two issues in control, it is the peace of mind and comfort within myself that keeps me on the mat! Through yoga practice, my life is balanced, comfortable, and I accept myself exactly as I am today. It is my sincerest hope to share this peace, and what I have learned from yoga with anybody who has room to improve. Whether it is to learn how to relax, get in shape, stay in shape, improve your posture and balance, or work on specific conditions or goals, I earnestly believe, yoga can be the improvement you're looking for!
As you come to your first class with me, you will quickly realize that I am not the picture of perfect physical fitness, nor do I form my body into a pretzel position. It is through my own limitations that I offer patience and compassion to my students.. I believe that my style of teaching is welcoming and comfortable for those of all shapes, sizes, and abilities. I offer a nurturing environment where we will all learn and grow at our individual pace. So please, come as you are!

I believe yoga gives us the capacity to
transform our bodies and minds. Through it we can achieve greater
physical health and wellbeing, prevent or recover from injury, and
deepen a connection to ourselves and others. As a yoga practitioner,
I have experienced the healing powers of yoga and truly appreciate
this capacity. As a teacher, I seek to facilitate this process
through my knowledge of the body, experience in therapeutic bodywork,
and passion for helping others. For me, yoga is not simply a fitness
activity, as I believe the rewards extend beyond improved physical
strength and stamina.
As a yoga teacher, I seek to become
acquainted with my students so that I can tailor classes to meet
their individual needs. This requires me to understand how my
students spend their days and know what injuries or limitations they
are dealing with. I do this by connecting with students and
encouraging regular attendance.
I began practicing yoga more than 10
years ago and during that time my practice has undergone many
transformations, as I have explored different styles and philosophies
and undergone many life changes. What began as an introductory yoga
class in college evolved into a self-exploration where I learned to
find myself on my mat. Through yoga, I learned how to be
compassionate with myself and really listen to my body and be more
present in every moment. It was not a short or easy journey. Indeed
at times it involved frustration, disillusionment and injury. But I
believe this makes me compassionate and patient when helping others
through their own journeys.
I am thrilled to be teaching in Lebanon
and look forward to helping build a yoga community in our town. If
