The Tribe

At Bohemian Bliss Yoga, ‘Life is what you make it…!’ We thrive on positivity and if it is not there, we are responsible for creating it. As a Tribe member, we accept all beings as individuals and encourage growth upon others from beginners to advanced. We follow a ‘listen to your body’, 'follow your breath’ and ‘smile as often as possible’ attitude when teaching and also off the mat. We promise to follow the Yoga Yamas and Niyamas (ethics and morals) to the best of our abilities. We are to work on self-love first before attending to the needs of others and keep our energy and balance in a safe place. Tribe members spend time in nature and enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer. Most importantly, we grow together as one. 

If life is a roller coaster, yoga is that moment after the first drop. Where going back up gets easier. I can let go of the coaster because everything is fine. Yoga helps me clear my head in the chaos. Through my asana practice, pranayama (breathing) and Dhyana (meditation) went hand-in-hand. I practiced for a few years before going to teacher training in Toronto. Then moved to Kingston and taught while in school for Fitness and Health Promotion. The studios there were amazing and the instructors were creative and welcoming.

Lilia Greatrix is a 200 yoga teacher trained graduate, with an additional 100 hours in training in trauma-informed yoga.  While yoga first began as a physical practice for fitness, it has truly become a way of life for her.  With a personal history of mental health issues, including depression and eating disorders, as well as a family history with trauma, the healing powers of yoga have not only become a powerful part of her life, but the passion with which she’d like to help others through their varied forms of pain and illness.  As someone who spent most of her life hating her body and not loving herself, the inner connection that breath and movement has created is her own personal medicine.  Yoga has allowed her to heal physically, emotionally and energetically, and it’s a gift that she truly wishes for everyone.  She loves life fully, and shares that love with all of those around her.

At a class with little you can expect a light-hearted, easy-going and cheerful approach to yoga that suits all levels and abilities (along with kick-ass playlists!).  She’s thrilled to join the BBY Tribe.

I was first drawn to yoga as a way to "fix myself" after years of physically and mentally abusing my body through my day job - and life in general. I fell in love with learning how to accept a slower pace, and honoring my body. After years about joking how I'd leave my current field and run away to teach on an exotic beach somewhere, I finally decided to dive in to a teacher training program. As someone who believes we are never done learning, I have continued to take teacher trainings to broaden my knowledge, always eager to learn new things to share with others. I truly believe that yoga is for every body and everybody. Regardless of back ground, shape, or size, there is something for everyone to take away from practice.


Yoga is not about touching your toes, it's about what you learn on the way down.

Recently retired from my career in medical oncology, a mother of three wonderful daughters, and now grandmother to three beautiful children! When I make changes I go all the way! Currently living lakeside in Bowmanville with my husband and three dogs, teaching yoga, Barre, RPM, and CXWorks at Goodlife Durham Region after 12 years in York Region I still miss my sweat buddies in Aurora. I have a passion for jewelry making, and raising funds for “Dogs Without Collars”.

I have always worked my body hard, year after year. The mind body connection which includes calm, still strength was realized only after my YogaFit training.

Yoga on the beach is my dream! Dreams do come true! I am living it! Balance and peace!

I discovered Yoga as a form rehabilitation for my body when I worked different labor extensive jobs. Irregular sleeping patterns & incorrect lifting positions took a toll, not only on my physical level but also mentally. I looked to yoga to reverse all those aches & pains & decided to gain more knowledge of how my body moves & feels. Receiving this ancient wisdom has allowed me to share my passion of Yoga to everyone I meet on a daily basis. Helping people was my main goal but to teach them how to live happier, pain free, stress free & having fun while doing it is a dream come true!

I love Yoga because being in this creative energy while being in service allows me to express my truest form of authenticity & passion. I love to teach Yoga because I am in a constant state of learning from my students & growth in order to serve them better. Allowing me to be the best version every time I step into the class!

I first got into yoga back in 2014 when I fell in love with fitness. I have been doing yoga on and off since then and every time I stopped, I missed it. I trained and competed in my first body building competition in 2017 and became an in home personal trainer. No matter what I did I always got pulled back in while I was experiencing the toughest times in my life. Last year after I lost someone dear to me I realized yoga was in my life to stay.  I was able to regulate my emotions through asanas and pranayama. I started working on my certification last year and started to teach on the side as a student. This year I finished my 200 hour certification and plan to keep going. I am constantly learning and I truly believe that teaching and learning yoga will be a lifelong journey for me as I feel it should be. We can never be perfect but that’s okay. The goal is to always learn and improve in all aspects of life.
