Lynette 

Lynette came to yoga after being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at the age of 32.  Searching for more natural ways to heal her body from debilitating pain, a friend suggested she try yoga -  and she was instantly hooked. Lynette loved the way the physical practice of yoga could be adapted to suit her individual body’s needs, which, over time, helped her regain mobility and relief from pain. Eager to learn more, she began what is now a 20+ year journey into the study and practice of yoga asana, yoga philosophy, pranayama and meditation.  Many classes, workshops, trainings and retreats later, Lynette knew it was her dharma to share the gift of yoga with others. In 2015 she completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training program with Colleen Hieber, Melissa Christensen and Aileen Pham at Spectra Yoga. She is currently completing her 300-hour advanced yoga teacher training with Courtney Parkyn, Megan Bello, Liz Heffernan & Alison Scola through Soma Yoga Institute and Better Living Yoga.Lynette believes that yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of age, fitness level, injuries, or conditions. Recognizing that no two bodies are the same, she takes an adaptive approach to teaching. Whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner, her students are encouraged to embrace their uniqueness and approach their yoga practice in an authentic way that supports their individual bodies. Lynette’s intention for her students is that they will develop a deeper mind-body connection and experience the many healing benefits of yoga, resulting in an increase in overall wellness and vitality.
