Blooming Life Yoga Studio + School Celebrates One-Year Anniversary

“Let it go and let it grow” was the proclamation made by Lily Dolan Kessler one year ago when she opened Blooming Life Yoga, in Zionsville. Since then, Blooming Life has sustained a steady growth that allowed their platform for outreach to expand with the development of a variety of programs, implementations that solidify its foundation and bring the center ever closer to its ideal of making yoga accessible to all.  

Some highlights of 2015 included Mats on Main, an outdoor yoga event in May for all skill levels in downtown Zionsville; Monumental Yoga, another outdoor event for all skill levels in June at Monument Circle in Downtown Indianapolis; the December graduation of 15, 200-hour yoga teacher trainees; and the creation of Torchbearer of Tradition, the country’s first-ever 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification for teenagers.

Over the past year, Blooming Life supported many local charities and school foundations, including the Hawk Foundation, TriKappa, KidsPeace, Fight for Life and the Zionsville Education Foundation. It’s also considered a yoga mentor liaison with University High School. Kessler will lead a trip to India with a school group in 2017.  

Upcoming events for this year include another Torchbearer of Tradition training program for teens ages 12.5 to 16 and the Midwest’s only 80-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training, both starting this month; a performance by world-renowned recording Kirtan artist Girish and the launch of a 200-hour Holistic Yoga Training, both in March; and retreats to Costa Rica in July and Peru in September.  

Location: 30 S. Elm St., Zionsville. For more information, visit
