Who We Are is an Endless, Emerging Possibility.

About The Bliss Beneath

My name is Ilona. I am a lifelong learner and a yoga practitioner. I have been a student of yoga for the past 15 years. My joys include hanging out with my family, practicing "yooga" with my granddaughter, reading, taking walks in nature with my dog, and raising monarch butterflies.

For the past three years, I have worked in the mental health field teaching mindfulness practices to those in treatment for substance use disorder, anxiety, depression, and trauma. After the world changed in March 2020, I moved my teaching to the Zoom platform.

I offer accessible yoga classes to mid-lifers and beyond to maintain and improve a sense of balance, flexibility, and vitality. With my background teaching in mental health facilities, I infuse my classes with mindfulness techniques to lead students toward better overall health.

For those who want to deepen their practice further, I offer private virtual one-on-one fee-based classes. In addition, virtual classes and workshops on healthy aging topics are offered throughout the year. Please email me at hello@theblissbeneath.com if you would like further information.
