L I T Life + Yoga allows all to see, hear and feel a LIFE+.
LIFE+ isn't just about yoga, it's about allowing your work on the mat to transform the rest of your life. Integrate and infuse your practice back into your work, relationships, and self.
At L I T, we aim to create a multisensory experience where all details matter. What you see, smell, hear and FEEL are all part of our unique experience.
Our environment is made special with features like bamboo radiant heated floors, light and color therapy, aromatherapy, and more. All classes are created with intention and unique offerings include AIReal™ Yoga, SoundOff™ Yoga, and Open Mat Sessions. Share in our any of our class offerings, events or L I T Labs and get that positive charge to take back into your life and into our world.
We foster an environment of collaboration and connection. You’ll often find us collaborating with experts and local brands both to evolve your personal practice and influence positivity in your life.
If you’re new to yoga, our team of luminaries are trained to help you find your flow. (And, if you’re new here, please introduce yourself. You won’t be a stranger for long.) If you’re a more advanced student, our team and offerings will challenge you to push your boundaries and expand your practice. Just as we help you be present with yourself, our team of luminaries are present with you - always.
As far back as I can remember, I have always felt this vibrant pulse of glowing energy within me wanting and waiting to be given to others, freely and never expecting anything in return. Just to see a genuine smile in the eyes of someone receiving this gift brings me pure happiness. For the past 30 years, I have had the honor to give this gift of beauty and self-confidence from the outside in to our community by serving as President and CEO of Charles Penzone Incorporated. My career started out by sharing my hands and heart as a hair stylist and grew from there.
Yoga means “unity”. L I T Life + Yoga is the final thread that weaves my life purpose together. Our aim is to create an open, loving community – inspiring self-care, mindfulness and overall wellness and giving the gift of a LIFE+ from the inside out.
When I began teaching yoga I was an introvert. I walked into a community where most of the people didn’t look or sound like me. What I found enlightened and changed me. I was embraced by an incredible community of unique individuals all bound by this practice. I soon felt comfortable being true to myself and the more I opened up, the more the community reciprocated. Who knew that conversing on Star Wars, Liberalism, Wu-Tang and peanut butter could help push my students to find their edge? The connection that I’ve gained by guiding and encouraging people is what the practice of yoga truly is.
I can only believe that what has brought me to L I T Life + Yoga is nothing short of serendipity. I had my eye on this space for well over a year. I’d drive by once a week, occasionally hop out, and stare in the windows -- dreaming that I’d instruct in the space...someday. After a series of serendipitous events, I found a job posting, applied, interviewed and found the courage to make my passion my career as studio manager for L I T. And now we’re here. I’m charged up to partner with Debbie Penzone to bring something a little different and very special to our community.
L I T LOVE LIFE + YOGA fund sparks the fuse and ignites the passion deep within our souls to fuel our community by co-creating change by raising the vibration of human kindness by giving the greatest gift of all…LOVE.
L I T LOVE LIFE + YOGA fund at The Columbus Foundation was created to utilize the most effective philanthropy possible; identifying the greatest needs of nonprofit organizations and strengthen our community.
We believe the power of philanthropy working together to by offering donation base classes and events to provide charitable giving opportunities to empower L I T LOVE LIFE +YOGA fund to live the spirit of Columbus.
