Meet The Blooming Lotus Yoga Teachers
Founder, M.ED, E-RYT 500
Being guided by her India Satguru, Her Holiness Amma Sri Karunamayi, Lily’s deep & profound inner journey has allowed her to synthesize the knowledge gained from her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology & Energy Healing Training, with the deep revelations born from her intensive meditation & yogic practices. Lily’s yearning for yoga has brought her to seek out its True Essence; it’s essential nature of being and the timeless wisdom that embodies these sacred teachings. While integrating this knowledge or vidya to offer a holistic approach that addresses the modern world, Lily focuses on Yoga as living; our awakened state, our True Self.
Along with her love for the mystic poets, dance, art, music, & sacred pilgrimages throughout India and Asia, Lily shares the multiple ways that our divine nature expresses itself both through the teachings & in our daily lives. Lily is honored to have worked with her dear friend Kate Potter on the Yoga T.V. & D.V.D series Namaste, and as well as produced her own Yoga Nidra CD’s as tools for meditation, health & healing, and awareness training. She has also developed specialized Yoga programs for various populations: professional athletes, senior groups, and men & women of all ages. Lily’s special interest lies in Meditation, Advaita Vedanta, Mantra & Tantra, Bhakti Yoga, and Yoga Nidra. Over the last 16 years she has been influenced by many great traditions & practitioners; which include teachings from the Hatha, Vinyasa, Power, Yin & Restorative approaches to yoga asana, as well as the chakra & self-inquiry approaches to spiritual awakening. She has fully dedicated herself to her spiritual journey and currently spends extensive time in retreat every year in remote forest ashrams in India, practicing silent meditation and serving those in need. Yoga with Lily aspires to ignite our awakening from within and guide us to live from a place of truth, compassion, & peace.

Author of “The Essential Teachings of Yoga,” Ramananda inspires the awakening of the spiritual heart through the wisdom traditions of Yoga, Tantra and Vedanta. A natural born mystic, vedic priest, astrologer and ayurvedic medicinal healer he facilitates yoga teacher trainings, vedic sacred arts workshops and discourses regularly in spiritual retreat centers around the world. Revealing the importance of Self-Awareness as a means to reconnect humanity to its roots as compassionate caretakers of Mother Nature, his silent presence emanates the love and insight of one surrendered into the Grace of Existence. From the lineage of one of the worlds’ ancient Goddess traditions, Shri Vidya, which recognizes nature as an expression of Spirit, he humbly offers spiritual guidance to all sincerely seeking liberation.
His teachings originate from the Vedas and the oral tradition of the enlightened saints of India which he received from his gurus and extensive pilgrimages throughout Asia. His extensive knowledge of the mystery teachings of the Vedas and Tantras coupled with his expertise in ceremony, ritual, Sanskrit chanting, mudras and mandalas opens the gateways into the unseen worlds that connect our world with that of the Spiritual realms. The sacred ceremonies he facilitates are an invitation into the dimensions of higher awareness where all may receive guidance, purification, and revelation. Bridging the gap between the wisdom of the ancient sages with the modern age, Ramananda is an advocate of selfless service, devotion, meditation and contemplation as a means of promoting world peace. Empowering each individual to unfold their spiritual potential and embody the essence of truth through their compassionate presence is his life’s work.
