When we focus on our alignment in a mindful way and move slowly through the poses using the breath as our guide we can experience them from the inside out. There is elegance in the small details. Taking time to nurture and nourish ourselves each day allows us to be aware of and appreciate all that our body can do. We practice in an effort to strengthen our muscles and bones and to re-balance our nervous system. This is aging gracefully. Our yoga can be a moving meditation.
My experience with yoga instructors has been widely varied. However, once I worked with Linda I didn't feel the need to try another instructor. Linda is extremely knowledgeable about the physical body. Through her cuing for each pose, she emphasizes alignment, awareness of one's own body, and focuses on each individual to help you build strength, balance and flexibility....from right where you are!
Following an injury to my spine and left wrist eight years ago, I truly believe that taking yoga classes from Linda is the reason I'm functioning as well as I am today. (She is trained in adaptive and restorative yoga). I have taken Linda's classes, faithfully and consistently since my injury. I attribute much of my physical well-being to her.
She is an amazing teacher, working well with ALL age groups. If you are looking for an excellent hatha-style teacher, contact her for class schedules, private lessons, or small groups. T.O. Age 75
I greatly enjoyed my private yoga class with Linda (a gift from my husband). We first talked about what I hoped to accomplish, then Linda evaluated my stance and frame, keeping my concerns in mind. The new things she taught, such as adjusting the position of my feet, or using different props to improve the alignment of my personal body, made a huge difference for me in the next group yoga class! It felt so energizing and the stretches were newly invigorating. This session greatly enhanced my yoga experience--I highly recommend a private session with Linda. A. Age 56
I took up yoga after cartilage surgery on a knee. I went from not being able to walk up and down steps without holding on to a railing to being able to squat, kneel and sit comfortably cross legged. I got my knees back! Linda is an experienced yoga teacher. I tried classes with 5 or 6 different teachers before settling with her. No need for distracting music or idle chatter, just pointed cues for each pose. J. 64 year old male
After injuring my low back, a chiropractor recommended that I take up yoga. So I began doing many classes with different instructors. I was impressed with Linda’s clear, detailed directions and individual coaching, and I soon realized how much her emphasis on alignment was also helping me in all my other yoga classes. And my back has been very good, too. I greatly appreciate Linda’s passion about helping each of us use good form for our body. She is outstanding! Dave
A class for beginners with Linda,
Where I met a Cat, a Cow, and a Cobra.
A stretch and a twist,
A block and belt to assist,
And that’s how I got into yoga!
I have been attending Linda’s classes for the last 5 years. Septuagenarian Guy
To say that Linda's Restorative Yoga Class is relaxing is certainly true, but I would very much be remiss if I did not mention the nourishing and healing energy that has stayed with me this week. I am grateful for the grounded and compassionate heart beat of the class. It is truly an anchor into stillness and being. Thank You. K.A.
I feel very fortunate to have Linda as a yoga teacher. I have experience with her both in a group setting and with private lessons. She is very knowledgeable and effective in sharing with her teaching. She is patient, kind and generous with her direction while also offering many prompts to help gain awareness in the poses. She clearly acknowledges and accepts we are all at different levels of experience and asks us to be honest with ourselves about what is right for our own body.
I was initially discouraged about my own ability to practice yoga. With Linda's support and encouragement, I kept coming back. I am grateful that thanks to her, I am now committed to my own yoga journey! E.H.
