Yoga Teacher

Lindsay (she/her) is a 500hr certified yoga teacher (CYT) and Yoga For All certified instructor, passionate about helping people enjoy yoga where they are.

She began to explore yoga beyond the physical asana practice during the pandemic, inspiring her to sign up for teacher training in September 2020. This training sparked a fire in Lindsay and she has not wanted to stop teaching or learning ever since.
