The Buzz

It was 1999, a time before athletes were familiar with yoga. I was walking off the Tennessee Titans practice field with assistant coach George Henshaw feeling a bit defeated by the vacant stares of half the team whom I might as well have been trying to initiate into Voodoo. George said if I changed one guy for the better it could be the thing that won a game and changed a season. One person at a time; that's how the world shifts.

Testimonials

 Hilary, I want to let you know that you have a gift for teaching yoga that I have never experienced in any other class.
 You described moving energy, moving breath, moving the body and I FELT it, and I felt energized after a class. And you weren’t so self-serious :-)
– Kathleen Madigan, fabric artist, Argentina

 

I have a new feeling for life that was missing in me. I was referred to Hilary by a medical professional. At 59 I looked 70 and felt it. I had lost flexibility and mobility and suffered from chronic neck and back pain with sciatica that caused loss of feeling in my leg and foot and made sleep difficult. In a few short months the pain is gone and I  sleep like a baby.  I am going snow skiing this year and had not been fit enough to ski for the last 9 years. People notice that the fun loving person they love has come back to life.  Thank you Hilary, you saved my life.  This is not what I ever thought yoga was.  Feeling 40 at 60.

– Darrell Bengson, Business Executive

At 53 and never having considered yoga in my life, Hilary was recommended to me by a physical therapist for back pain. I hadn’t realized that my body had become so inflexible that I could barely put on my own shoes.  After thoroughly evaluating my condition, Hilary put me through a program that completely eliminated my back problems. I now play golf and tennis with ease.  She saved me a fortune in doctor bills, possible surgery and the results started almost immediately.  I can not recommend Hilary more highly.  She’s my “better angel”.

– Roger Sarchett, Music Producer

Hilary is a great yoga instructor….she kept me focused on getting into shape.

– Faith Hill

Active Yoga made me feel the best I’ve felt in my life. The depth of the work rewarded me on a spiritual as well as physical level. Every class is different and it trained me to be sensitive to the changes in my own body and life.

– Jaime Kyle, singer, songwriter, music producer

Hilary is a life saver. She researched my arthritis condition, provided me with a yoga workout and suggested lifestyle changes. Hilary is extremely knowledgeable and has a clear understanding of her client’s needs. She loves what she does and it shows.

– Kenya Mathis, Chief Warrant Officer, United States Army

Hilary’s classes have not only given me yoga skills but taught me how to teach. I always find myself referring to her with my students and I recently modeled the breath work in a “Fearless Singing” workshop on hers. Hilary’s ability to express the integration of the body informs me in areas beyond yoga and despite my training as a musician and a massage therapist, I never understood the interplay of anatomy in action until I experienced Hilary’s instruction. And it’s so much fun!

– Adie Grey, Singer/Songwriter, Music Educator

There is not a workout in town that’s wilder or more fun than Hilary’s dance class. It is something everyone should experience, not once, but every Saturday morning. Her drummers are fantastic!

– Minton Sparks, performance poet

She’s a very energetic woman, she’s stronger than most of the guys on the team.

– Eddie George, Running Back Tennessee Titans

Martial arts has taken its toll on my middle-aged body. Restorative yoga with Hilary brings relief and restores my strength. My overall performance is improved in my golf game as well as Hapkido.

– Tommy Bernard, 5th Degree Black Belt, C.E.O. Horizon Wine and Spirits

For the past four years Hilary’s free flow style has proved to be vital to attaining balance in a life which requires working in a bureaucratic environment engaged daily with crime, analysis, and administrative details. She motivates participants to set high but attainable goals of self awareness and physical accomplishment.

– John Konerman, Federal Agent

I like you but I hate this s***! Can’t you just come over and we’ll have lunch?

– K.T. Oslin, entertainer, singer

I get tight and unbalanced from competing in polo matches. Hilary challenges me to move, regain balance, relax, and think positively.

– Cathy Brown, one goal amateur polo player

I have taken yoga and dance classes with teachers around the country and Hilary Lindsay has the most dynamic, innovative, and intelligent teaching style of anyone I’ve studied under.
