Chic Spotlight: LIT Life + Yoga

Cbus Chic: What is LIT Life + Yoga?
Debbie Penzone, Creator of LIT Life + Yoga: At LIT, we aim to create a multi-sensory experience where all details matter. What you see, smell, hear and FEEL are all part of our unique experience.

LIT Life + Yoga allows all to see, hear and feel a LIFE+. LIFE+ isn’t just about yoga, it’s about allowing your work on the mat to transform the rest of your life. Integrate and infuse your practice back into your work, relationships, and self.

Cbus Chic: What’s the inspiration behind it?
Penzone: As far back as I can remember, I have always felt this vibrant pulse of glowing energy within me wanting and waiting to be given to others, freely and never expecting anything in return. Just to see a genuine smile in the eyes of someone receiving this gift brings me pure happiness. For the past 30 years, I have had the honor to give this gift of beauty and self-confidence from the outside in to our community by serving as President and CEO of Charles Penzone Incorporated.  My career started out by sharing my hands and heart as a hair stylist and grew from there.

Yoga means “unity.” LIT Life + Yoga is the final thread that weaves my life purpose together. Our aim is to create an open, loving community – inspiring self-care, mindfulness and overall wellness and giving the gift of a LIFE+ from the inside out.

Cbus Chic: Who’s behind LIT Life + Yoga?
Penzone: I am the create of LIT Life + Yoga and work alongside Creative Director Babajide Ogunmola. We also have our luminaries, who inspire and influence others and serve as a guiding light, an inspiration, and expert, and a leader in yoga and in life. Our luminaries learn through experience on and off the mat. They’re the ones who inspire us to be bold, determined, compassionate, and creative. They share their philosophy of yoga with us in the studio and teach us how to live it off the mat to positively impact the world.

Cbus Chic: What types of classes do you offer?

New partnerships continue to bring unique experiences into our studio. For example, our “BFF-4-Eva Event” in February features an hour of vinyasa + partner poses in as part of our relationship with The Beauty Boost.
