My Name is Lily Kral, I am so excited to be joining Inner Essence. I am originally from Portland and received my degree in psychology from the University of Oregon. I am incredibly passionate about incorporating body wellness and movement with mental health. I am an avid rock climber, and practice contortion on the side. Additionally, I love art and am often covered in paint from my new hobby: acrylic pouring. In the future, I would love to incorporate a stretching, contortion, and pilates class into the classes offered for our community. I look forward to making new connections and playing together
Office Assistant, Herbalist & Yoga Instructor
I've been living in Portland for over 4 years exploring the terrain as a bioregional herbalist, dancer, mover, hairstylist, and student. I feel the most authentic when I'm curiously exploring movement. Through embodiment, I enter into deeper connections and intimacy with the community around me. Dance has been with me since birth, starting with ballet and now exploring contemporary and improvisational movement. Alongside dance, I've been practicing yoga since 2007. I have a 200hr training from The People's Yoga here in Portland and starting a 100hr training in the Spring. I believe that when we access our body's innate wisdom we are radically stepping into relationship with the Earth's body and when we feel connected to the Earth we experience a deeper sense of belonging.
Reconnect you mind and body so that you can live your life in current time and keep the past in the past.

It is my goal to make you feel like the expert on your path, but I will help to point out new ways to see things or things you might not have noticed.
