Lydia discovered yoga over 2 decades ago, she began teaching in 2008, in 2013 she began training others to teach this sacred practice. She recognized at a young age how beneficial the movement of the body was for the mental and emotional well-being. She has studied with many renowned teachers and is always learning and expanding her experience and knowledge of this lifelong practice by continuing to learn from her most favorite and influential teachers of the past and present. Vinyasa has been her staple for many years. She’s thrilled to see the movement of change and acknowledgement of no absolutes in yoga and to teach intelligently means knowing why you are teaching what you are teaching… Afterall setting a purpose to the practice is what gives it depth. Lydia’s classes will include intelligent and invigorating sequences, with a “why” behind all of these things, she is very dedicated to sharing the practice of yoga in a way that will allow the transformation of the mind-body in a functional, beneficial, and focused way. Good Music is always included, breath to movement flows, and always an awareness of individual needs (injuries) will be addressed. Working through imbalances in the mind-body takes patience, dedication, and will power. She will encourage you to honor how you are each day, to not judge or assume, instead offer yourself grace and love. Lydia strives to bring yoga into everyday life by doing, evolving and truly living it, allowing peace and joy to flourish within and spread to others.
