Faith Hill credits Hilary with getting her back into shape after the birth of her youngest child. Keith Urban, Raul Malo, K.T. Oslin, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Tipper Gore, and author Elaine Pagels are some of the publicly known clients that have studied with Hilary.

The experience of a decade long career as a commercial film producer in Manhattan and Los Angeles created a natural segway for Hilary to work in the corporate world and with high profile clients.

Hilary was certified in 1986 to teach Bjorkman and Martin’s method in N.Y.C., which broke new ground in the field of somatics educating students to integrate left and right brain functions through a challenging combination of dance patterns, yoga, and Pilates. Hilary’s studies in modern dance at The Alvin Ailey School, Haitian dance with Serge St. Juste, and her personal study of yoga enabled her to develop the Bodymind Workout as an extension of Martin’s work.

She introduced the fusion of music, dance, and yoga in Los Angeles with a unique method called the Bodymind Workout in 1988.

In Los Angeles Hilary studied and took her teacher training from yoga and meditation teacher Diana Lang, who was trained in the Iyengar method. As an early student of Power Yoga originator Bryan Kest's, she was inspired to develop a groundbreaking yoga flow style using her dance background. Diana’s visualizations and thoughtful asanas have a lasting influence in this work. Hilary maintains her training with continued education from senior Iyengar teachers.

Hilary won recognition for her unique approach to yoga with the 2001 calendar she created with photographer husband Rob Lindsay, “Rebel Yogis, A Celebration of Students”.

In 2008 Hilary created Floorplay ™ which incorporates massage with yoga to accelerate the process of releasing physical restrictions.

Hilary continues to teach classes and workshops to the public along with her specialty work for individuals and businesses.
