A passionate traveler and yogini, Hillary Easom (E-RYT, R-PYT) has explored all seven continents and published many articles about her adventures. Since a rowing injury led her to yoga in the late 1990s, Hillary has studied various styles of yoga including Iyengar, vinyasa, yin and therapeutics. Her classes combine elements of all of these, with a strong focus on breath and mindful movement.
Her background in education (B.A. Boston College, M.Ed. University of Washington) strengthens Hillary’s ability to teach effectively in a nurturing manner. She strongly believes that yoga can benefit people of every background, age and level of fitness: Yoga for EveryBody. Based in the San Francisco Bay area for the past decade, she teaches slow flow, prenatal and mom & baby yoga classes locally and trains teachers to do the same. She co-founded and co-directs Lotus Blossom Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training and is on the teacher training faculty at Samyama Yoga Center in Palo Alto, CA.
Hillary shares a home with her husband, two children and a revolving mini zoo (currently a hamster, a fish and occasionally a neighborhood dog). Off the mat, she loves running, hiking, SCUBA and anything that involves being on or near the water.
