 Linda’s teaching journey is the natural extension of years as a fitness instructor and a career as a Licensed Professional Counselor. She looks forward to planning every class and sharing the knowledge gained while earning her 500RYT and Advanced Teacher of Therapeutic Yoga certifications. Educating and encouraging her students brings great joy. Each class includes Pranayama, Asana and tools to add to your home practice.Therapeutic Yoga focuses on healing the whole body by fostering health in all 5 layers of being (Koshas) including musculoskeletal, breath, self-concept, acceptance of self and others and the ability to find joy in everyday life.

All 500 hours of Linda’s training was through Integrative Yoga Therapy, founded by Joseph LePage and taught by an amazing faculty including Genevieve Yellin who pioneered Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy and is sharing it with the world. Integrative Yoga Therapy is now part of the Kripalu School of Yoga. Linda has also studied Shiva Rae’s Prana Flow method with Adri Kyser of Inner Beauty Yoga and in 2018 added a Pre-Natal certification taught by Shanon Buffington. Areas of interest for further study include Ayurveda, teaching special populations and offering workshops using the tools of Yoga to cope with anxiety and depression.

Linda knows that regular practice brings peace, hope and clarity and she’d love to see you in her classes.
