Lilias, Yoga and You was a PBS television show hosted by Lilias M. Folan, a Cincinnati, Ohio based practitioner of yoga. The show first aired in 1972 on Cincinnati PBS member station WCET and three years later[2] was carried on PBS across the United States, where it ran until 1999.

Lilias! Yoga Gets Better With Age[edit]

WCET premiered Lilias! Yoga Gets Better With Age in March 2006, highlighting Folan's career and exploring the impact yoga has on the mind, body and spirit.[3]

Books and other media[edit]

Folan has published four books: Lilias, Yoga and You (1972), Lilias, Yoga and Your Life (1981), Lilias! Yoga Gets Better With Age (2005), and Lilias! Yoga: Your Guide to Enhancing Body, Mind, and Spirit in Midlife and Beyond (November 1, 2011).,[4][5] Several VHS and DVD recordings of her yoga routines have been released, plus an audio-only book, Lilias Yoga Complete (1987),[6] and one meditation CD, The Inner Smile (1998).[7]

Music[edit]

The music in the show's opening credits are "Valley of the Bells" from Maurice Ravel's Miroirs.

Commentary[edit]

San Francisco Chronicle columnist Gerald Nachman observed of the television program in 1979, "My yoga lady remains a mystery woman, a comely creature from a distant planet ... Lilias is demure and quite serious ... By far her most intriguing aspect is that she never sweats ... She seems friendly, but if you tried flirting, I suspect she'd politely guide the conversation back to firming up those inner thighs."[8]
