Hila Susanne Bewilogua is a certified Kundalini and Ishta Yoga teacher with over two decades of teaching experience and many more years of yogic studies.

While practicing Pilates over the past 10 years, Hila has been incorporating the teachings of Joseph Pilates into her lessons.

Her unique views on life makes students feel comfortable in themselves as well as challenge them to find willpower and courage to work on themselves and make the necessary changes or adjustments in their life.

Hila’s Yoga journey started in 1996 in Hamburg, Germany through the teachings of Satya Singh, a Kundalini Yoga teacher.

In the search for a way to handle stress and relationships in her busy life Hila discovered the tools of Yoga.

A daily routine of breathing techniques, physical exercises and relaxation methods gave her the ability to constantly move forward and see every obstacle in her way as a life challenge and opportunity for spiritual growth.

Shortly after being introduced to the Five Tibetans rejuvenating exercises and the practice of Kundalini Yoga, Hila left for India where she spent time in a Tibetan monastery.

It was there she realized that this is not just a one year self discovery journey but a lifelong path she began to travel.

Being introduced to Ashtanga, Iyengar, Yantra, and Hatha Yoga, Vipassana Meditation, and the teachings of Ayurveda she found her calling.

She became a certified Ishta Yoga (Integrated science of Hatha Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda) and a Kundalini Yoga teacher.

Hila was based in Tokyo, Japan for 24 years and lived for extended periods of time in India, Thailand, North and South America and Israel where she shared her knowledge of yoga and taught plant-based cooking lessons.

All styles of yoga are equally designed to bring mental and physical well being, as well as stimulating and sharpening the senses.

Once one allows body and mind to connect one will know how to master oneself and become capable to master what our mind believes is impossible.

Hila’s goal is to teach you to become independent. Using your breath, physical exercises and hand gestures for calming, strengthening and energizing the body and mind to function well all day, every day.

Hila continues to embark on the journey of self discovery and mastery.

Don’t label yourself as a Vegan or Raw Foodie, be YOU.

In labeling yourself you limit yourself and that inevitably will bring stress into your life. Stay open minded to new possibilities in the kitchen without having to belong to a certain group of people. What seems perfect today may not suit and serve your future. Learn how to prepare raw vegan dishes and combine them with the food you love.

Creating dishes, cooking for and with others even though you may not speak the same language is a way to be peaceful together and open up one’s horizons to not only discovering new ingredients but also getting to know other cultures better.

Hila is a certified chef, patissier and coach. She spent seven consecutive years of study in Germany and has nearly thirty years of working experience.

While living in India, Hila learnt about Ayurvedic wisdom (A traditional system of medicine in which illnesses are treated with a combination of foods, herbs, massage and special physical exercise / yoga).

During her time in Israel she gained knowledge of practicing kosher cooking and whilst living in South America she embraced raw fruits and vegetables.

Hila spent over two decades living in Japan, during which time she also discovered the art of macrobiotic cuisine.

These experiences have helped her through a struggle with sugar addiction and other health issues such as dealing with Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune disorder.

Hila has treated herself successfully since 2006 without using prescription drugs but by preparing foods from scratch and including a daily routine of exercises and relaxation.

Her book Raw Vegan Recipes for Everyone is not an encouragement to be fully raw and vegan. Hila rather guides the reader back to simple basics, making food from scratch again.
