E-RYT 500, Y4C Certified Teacher, Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, Health and Wellness Coach
Lynda has been studying and practicing yoga for more than 16 years. Her journey started with a daily hatha yoga practice, until she found Kundalini Yoga. She has been a dedicated practitioner of Kundalini Yoga ever since. When life turned her in a different direction in 2009, she decided it was time to pursue her passion and become a certified Kundalini Yoga Instructor. For two years Lynda traveled from Plattsburgh, NY to Memphis, TN one weekend per month, and graduated summa cum laude from Ravi Singh and Ana Brett's 500 Hour Teacher Training Program. Ravi Singh studied with Yoga Bhajan, who first taught Kundalini Yoga in the U.S., and is an internationally recognized master of Kundalini Yoga.
Additionally, Lynda is certified to teach yoga for cancer classes, having completed a 45 hour training program with Tari Prinster, creator of the Y4C program. She also holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Vermont.
Lynda also has participated in a seminar with the Veterans Yoga Project and is trauma informed to offer mindful resilience yoga classes to those that suffer from PTSD and related challenges.
As a recent graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, Lynda enjoys coaching and supporting clients on their journey to better health. By utilizing her diverse knowledge and the philosophy of bio-individuality, she assists clients in finding their personal best in health and in life.
Lynda is a gifted, knowledgeable, and a very creative teacher. Her unique gift is to present these ancient and powerful teachings in a way that is relevant to our lives today, in a way that keeps them accessible and enjoyable, yet still profound and transformative.
Lynda tailors her classes to suit all types of individuals, regardless of age, ability, body type, flexibility, or physical health. She enjoys applying her science background and knowledge of the human body to the ancient teachings of yoga.
