Lindsay Hilscher: Yoga practitioner & Teacher 

My NativeAdVantage:


Lindsay Hilscher is a yoga practitioner and teacher based in New York City. She teaches public classes at Yoga Vida and Yoga Works. She is a lead teacher for the teacher training and mentorship program at Yoga Vida. She is also a teacher on staff at Eddie Stern’s Brooklyn Yoga Club. A devout student of Ashtanga Yoga, she bases her teaching on steady progression achieved through consistent practice.  With a regular practice, over a long period of time, the body will become strong and open. As this happens, the mind is also trained to become steady and calm. In 2007, while pursuing a professional modern dance career, Lindsay began exploring yoga. She became a vinyasa yoga teacher in 2011. In 2012, Lindsay started a daily Ashtanga yoga practice under the guidance of Eddie Stern at Ashtanga Yoga New York. In 2015 Lindsay took her first trip to Mysore, India to study with Sharath Jois at the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. She holds a BFA in Dance Performance from SUNY Purchase College, a two hundred hour certification from Yoga Vida and a Level Two Reiki certification.

What do you do best?

I try my best to pay attention to things that are important to me. That means my yoga practice gets daily attention and effort. Practicing everyday has taught me a lot, not just about the Ashtanga Yoga method, but also about myself. I’ve learned about my thought patterns, and how they affect my mood, my body, and my ability to focus. I’ve also learned that my mind is probably my biggest obstacle to success. So I try to listen and observe rather than react. This makes me feel like I’m effectively strengthening myself from the inside, making me the best person and teacher I can be.  Attention and effort are great teachers. 

What makes you the best?

I genuinely care.

I believe in yoga.  I trust it, and I’m grateful for it.

What are your aspirations?

To live until I’m at least 100 years old, and to feel young that whole time.  

Biggest Success?

I consider myself successful because I am healthy and happy with my life. It took many mini successes to get to this point, and the path was certainly not linear.

Most Challenging Moment?

I struggle with endings and goodbyes.  I struggle saying goodbye each time I visit with my family, which isn’t often enough.  I have struggled when relationships fell apart, and when my parent’s marriage ended.  But struggle is important, and heartbreak shows you just how much you care.  


Wait and watch.  

Favorite People/Role Models?

My best friends in New York are always, ALWAYS there for me.

My brothers, who have teased me relentlessly and taught me to be light and strong.  

My parents are my biggest cheerleaders.

Eddie Stern, my teacher and a really good human.

Favorite Places/Destinations?

I love going for long drives through upstate New York.  My favorite place to practice yoga is Brooklyn Yoga Club. I’m fascinated by India. And I love going to a comfy café with a really good barista.

Favorite Products/Objects?

Linen bedding

Cashmere sweaters

Lights on dimmers

Fixed gear bicycles

Current Passions?

The fine arts in New York City…There are so many brilliant creative people in the city, young and old.  And Zvi Gotheiner’s ballet class is my obsession – there are many talented dancers who regularly take his class, and it’s a pleasure to dance with them.
