E-RYT200/RYT 500 Registered Yoga Teacher
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 25+ 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.
Lynette completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training program with Colleen Hieber, Melissa Christensen and Aileen Pham at Spectra Yoga. She went on to complete 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 has completed additional trainings in Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Lift, Yoga Nidra, Trauma Informed Yoga, Anatomy and Memory Maintenance Yoga. She is also a sound healer and Reiki Master.
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, creating space for students to discover and embrace their uniqueness and approach their yoga practice in an authentic way that supports their individual needs. Her intention is to compassionately meet each student where they are and support them on their individual journey to a deeper connection with body, breath and spirit so they may fully experience the many beautiful healing benefits of yoga.
