Mark Lilly, (he/him) shares the practice of yoga and mindfulness with thousands of youth as founder of both Street Yoga and Rebel Breath. He is also a cofounder of Yoga Service Council and Each Amazing Breath. Mark still lives with the tremors of traumas past, and realizes there is a delicate line between suffering and awakening. His teaching emphasizes cultivation of the best within each of us, the authentic stories and experiences that illuminate our being and drive our teaching to places of deep truthfulness.
Mark has developed many special yoga curricula in addition to the core and advanced trainings in trauma-informed and breath-centered resilience practices. He has developed specialized workshops for young patients recovering from illness or injury in the hospital, for young people recovering from sexual abuse, and for adults moving through entrenched traumas or grappling with high-intensity communication situations. Through it all, he brings a lightness and love to his teaching that is rooted in humility, grace, and joy.
