Our training is of the Himalayan tradition following a lineage that goes back to the ancient roots and principles of the purest teachings of Yoga. Lotus Yoga Centre was originally founded by Shirley Walter under the direction of Swami Rama in 1972. Shirley studied under Swami Rama from 1969 until his death in 1996. Swami Rama trained Shirley to teach yoga and meditation in her Rolling Meadows home until a property was purchased in Glenview, IL. which became the headquarters for the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy. Shirley as director created the teachers training program and has certified hundreds of yoga instructors. Lotus Yoga Centre moved to Lake Zurich, IL where Anita Maher went through that training with Shirley in 2004 and in 2010 when Shirley decided she was ready to retire she trained Anita to become the director of Lotus Yoga Centre. In February of 2011 Anita and Shirley certified the first class of yoga instructors with Anita as the new director. In 2016 Anita found a new home at Silver Lotus Yoga. 

Lotus Yoga Centre is a registered school with Yoga Alliance since 2003.
