Having spent most of the past 25 years living internationally in Africa, Japan and the South Pacific Islands, I have been fortunate to experience unique people, cultures and natural beauty yet struggled to focus on my needs and to create balance in my own life in the midst of constant change and transition. I began practicing yoga sixteen years ago while living in Samoa to ease my transition back into the less relaxed pace of life in the northeastern US. My personal practice helped me come to appreciate the importance of creating close connections and the ability to feel grounded no matter how far out one’s “comfort zone” one may be. Wanting to share my discoveries with others I became a Yoga Alliance registered teacher/ERYT200, TRX trainer and stand up paddle board teacher, guide and SUP yoga teacher and Thai Yoga practitioner. With a lighthearted and compassionate approach I draw upon my specialized training in TRX, SUP, awareness and alignment based yoga, vinyasa, prenatal & postnatal yoga, infant, children’s, restorative, and senior & therapeutically oriented yoga, Soma Veda© Thai Yoga and coaching as well as childbirth education and infant massage instruction to I support you in developing practices and creating challenges suited to your particular stage of life and needs. I look forward to helping you discover wellness, joy and beauty through self-awareness, proper alignment, relaxation practices and breath techniques, to embrace challenge without fear and to recognize the power of the connection of body, mind & spirit. ~Lynne
