Ilana Siegal

Ilana Siegal founded LifeWorks Studio to bring a culture of radical (self) care to the Berkshires. Life can be isolating but having community helps. Since 2013, Ilana has been focused on creating an environment that fosters growth, development, and a feeling that making your life work is possible. Drawing on a long career in yoga, Pilates, dance, bodywork, and personal development, Ilana develops programs that integrate best practices in mind and body fitness and wellness.

Originally from Ann Arbor, MI., Ilana first came to the Berkshires 20 years ago to study at Bard College at Simon’s Rock. Ilana was a Certificate student at the Ailey School in New York City, and later became a certified Life Coach through Coaching for Transformation. An E-RYT500 yoga teacher, Ilana was one of the first yoga therapists certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists after many years in practice. In 2016, Ilana was given one of Berkshire Magazine’s Berkshire 25 Awards: most innovative, influential and dedicated for her work supporting families in Southern Berkshire County. Ilana also serves on the Parks Committee for the town of Great Barrington where she lives with her partner and three children.

LifeWorks Studio prides itself for welcoming all levels of ability and all members of the community. Supportive, accessible and challenging for beginners through professionals, LifeWorks classes offer a unique approach to movement, form, and function. Join us for fitness classes, wellness workshops, and a true experience of community.
