When/where/with who was your first yoga class? My first class was in 1999, at a local gym, with a woman named Christine. I was inspired and decided to deepen my practice at Flow Forms Yoga and later at Metro West Yoga Studio.

What / who inspires you? All my teachers that I have been blessed to have trained with, my husband, and my son and daughter because they continuously remind me to appreciate the little things in life, to laugh and to stay present to the moment. People who are courageous enough to be their personal best.

What I love most about yoga is: Yoga is endless….it will always be there for each and every one of us.

What you can’t live without? My beautiful family, sunshine, the beach and my sisters.

What you might not know about me: I love to sing and dance to my Latin music-instant joy!

Lilly Caruso instructs the following:
  • Noontime Flow (Hot Heat)
  • MYoga Flow Yoga covers a wide variety of yoga styles. Including; Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Bikram and Baptiste. It is a vigorous practice that strengthens the core muscles in the body, enhances flexibility, while encouraging deep concentration and focus. All Flow Yoga is practiced in a heated room. The heat encourages perspiration, which helps to detoxify and cleanse the body. The muscles respond to the heat by relaxing and allowing us to move deeper into a posture. There is an assumption that you have practiced before, so there is less attention to alignment ques. This moves at a faster pace to elevate the heart rate and elevate the cardiovascular system as well as develop strength and flexibility. This practice will tone and sculpt your body and heal your soul. Be prepared to sweat, and discover your inner strength!  (Hot Heat)
