// What is Trill Yoga
Trill Yoga started as a hashtag as a way to describe how I practiced yoga. It had a guerrilla approach, and took me, the “unconventional” non-yoga-looking yogi, wearing what I wanted, practicing where I wanted, and throwing all stereotypes and stigmas about what yoga is, and has to be, out the window. It is now becoming a global vibe for those who practice yoga according to their own rules.
Trill is a way to describe something well respected, authentic, true and real. Yoga means union, and ultimately is a journey back to the self, through the self. What is more real than practicing in a way that is unique to you, and who you are? Trill Yoga just wants everyone to embrace themselves, whatever that is, and still be able to find and utilize yoga. And maybe you don’t ever do yoga. I would hope it would at least inspire people to look at yoga a little differently, and give this whole wellness, and mindfulness thing a chance.
Yoga is so much more than just a physical practice, but I have always believed those who need yoga the most don’t even think its available to them. Ironically, a practice that is meant to show us how to find ourselves has become something that separates, judges, and shames. #TrillYoga was my way of showing yoga is for everybody and every body.
The first time I ever defined Trill Yoga, I said it was a practice that is open to all looking to reap the physical, mental and spiritual benefits yoga can offer. It’s real, it’s raw, it’s whatever you make your yoga practice. It values music, art, culture, and the power of individuality. We're on the streets. We're in the desert. We're in living rooms, apartments, and open spaces. We're wherever we want to be, showing yoga is open to any and all.
The Future of Trill Yoga //
Ideally we change how yoga is seen, and continue to break stereotypes and stigmas many have about yoga, wellness, and a healthy, thoughtful lifestyle. A trill tour is in the works, but more than anything I love seeing anyone who is inspired, posting on social media using the hashtag.
