I stumbled on this little gem of a yoga studio while visiting central Pennsylvania for a short time. Really, just a lovely studio! Welcoming staff, reasonably priced (check out their intro specials) and wonderfully centering, both physically and spiritually. Definitely a worth visiting if you need a little refocusing!

Took the intro class and learned so much more than the physical side of yoga. I can't wait to continue my practice at Lila.

I am reconnecting with yoga. In just over a week, I have enjoyed varied classes with different instructors. Each instructor has given me the ability to get in tune with my mind and body. I look forward to each class and highly recommend the calm, welcoming spirit of this yoga practice!

I thought I hated yoga. It was for "hippies" and people with a certain body type, but this year I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and was on prescription painkillers. My quality of life was very low and I needed a change. After looking around, I saw that Lila Yoga had a beginners class and I bit the bullet. In 5 weeks I went from barely able to walk, to quitting painkillers all together. Lila is special. You don't feel ugly or out of shape here. Everyone is on a journey and instead of "not being able to do it" the teachers here show how YOU with YOUR body can tap into an awareness of your breath, mind, body and energy. It's not about comparing or winning a race, but making yourself better. You take the awareness in the studio and learn how to make tiny, but significant changes in your regular life. A yoga "pose" becomes more than a counting game of isometric flexing. A "pose" becomes a physical embodiment of a state of mind. You aren't in warrior II, you are strong in the present moment and accept the future and the past. This way of teaching is unique in my experience. The staff is willing to answer all kinds of questions, from how you can modify a pose to avoid pain to what to do with extra flesh you might have. On top of that, in my experience, there is a deep sense of community and if you reach out, someone will be there to share your experience, give advice or simply give you a smile and remember your name. This place is more than a workout studio and it really is a place that is welcoming to everyone.

Hey guys I am Astha and I am glad that I started my yoga experience with Lila yoga studios. It is very good place to learn the synchronization of mind and heart!!!!

I walked in a square. Confused at others, I would stare. Then listened to the words that would strip my soul bare. "Lila is about play" so relax and don't care.

Lila is the best yoga studio I've ever been to. I only went there for a semester, but it was one of the best yoga experiences I had. I've been doing yoga for three years, but I learned more in one semester than I did the past three years. All the teachers were very good and qualified (a special thank you to Grace for her teaching ). I would highly recomment student passes for unlimited yoga (it's such a good deal!). I'm going to miss this place!

I felt more relax the moment I walked in to the studio. I was nervous and the teacher kindly introduced herself to me making me feel more comfortable. I felt more at peace after my first class.

Lila is the best yoga studio I have ever been to. As a student, they offer many chances for discounts/free yoga during finals week, along with so many different times for classes that make it easy to make a consistent part of my life. Every instructor has a unique style, but they all make sure that you are safe and in a relaxed environment to laugh, ask questions, fall out of poses, but also challenge yourself. As I am preparing to graduate, I know that Lila will be one of the communities that I will miss the most.

I have been practising Lila Yoga since the last 3 years now and I can't possibly put down in words the effects it has had on me and my life. Erica is a wonderful teacher and everyday with her brings new learnings. I am currently doing the 200 hour Lila Yoga Teacher Training program in India and our week long workshops are quite intense and insightful into the world of sharing the science and art of yoga with world. Our most recent workshop, Philosophy in Motion which was a part of the training was held in Chennai. There wouldn't have been a better medium to study the Bhagvad Gita and Pitanjali's Yoga Sutra. Having heard them so many times living in India, Erica's commentaries and interpretation of the two scriptures showed a new angle on how this all fits into the everyday life. I have immense gratitude towards Erica and Lila yoga for sharing this philosophical knowledge and the studies into movement with it.

I live in FL but will be back to visit. Anna, Jeremy and Josh are awesome teachers. Anna and Jeremy were especially encouraging when I brought my niece with me. So I brought my 9 & 10 yr old daughters the next day too. Love Lila style and appreciated the welcoming and friendly atmosphere! best regards and shanti- Tina
