Hotlanta Yoga Teacher Trainers

Malia Hilliard

Teacher Trainer & Retreat Host

Malia Hilliard fell in love with yoga at 15 when her Father took her to a Yoga Retreat to help a back injury she acquired jumping off an 80 ft waterfall. The practice was Iyengar based, therefore both powerful and therapeutic, and ended up teaching her skills she could apply to every aspect of her life.  Although Iyengar remains Malia’s greatest inspiration, she has created her own unique practice influenced by the many seasoned instructors she was able to study with during her 10 years in Los Angeles.  Malia’s classes are fluid, powerful, inspiring and fun. Now a Yoga Alliance Certified E-RYT-200 instructor, Malia’s dynamic teaching style has attracted many big names in the industry and landed her sponsorships from companies like Nike, Lululemon and Marika Clothing to name a few.  Malia teaches at Hotlanta Yoga in Atlanta and hosts Workshops and Retreats globally. A traditionalist at the core, Malia is dedicated to the principles of alignment and the potential of the breath, combining them with vigorous vinyasa flow to create a uniquely profound experience in class. Her light-hearted approach makes yoga philosophy both understandable and attainable.  Malia believes in the transformational power of yoga and is continually honored to witness the shifts yoga inspires in her students and in herself.
