Illumine : Elevating Community

I had the absolute pleasure of assisting with  hosting the official launch party of illumine magazine last night! The room was filled with so many beautifully eclectic souls from Chicago's own yoga community.

"Illumine is a new Chicago magazine that explores what it feels like to do and live yoga "illumine" is a process, not a destination. It is what we do and how we live...Our magazine is a resource to increase our knowledge of the practice of yoga " writes founder Lourdes Paredes. 


 Lourdes Paredes (Founder and Publisher) is an established Chicago yoga teacher. She has taught locally at Moksha Yoga Center, Yogaview, Namaskar Yoga, Exhale Mind Body Spa, Niyama Yoga and Healing Power Yoga and at citywide yoga events. Lourdes has led international retreats and workshops and has been featured at national yoga festivals. Her passion for teaching yoga as an authentic way of life fuels the founding of ILLUMINE.
