Yoga & Meditation

Yoga and meditationLynda believes that each person is whole and complete even as the desire for change is present. Her purpose is to remove the barriers to your own believe in your infinite potential.

Lynda specializes in working with people who are stressed or who may suffer from anxiety, depression or the effects of trauma.

Lynda’s approach to Yoga is based on two key cornerstones of invitation and inquiry.  By offering choice and encouraging curiosity, she will guide you to connect with your body in the present moment, thus empowering you on and off the mat.
