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, meditation and Yoga Nidra. In 2015, Lynette completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training program at Spectra Yoga in Costa Mesa, CA. She completed her 300-hour advanced yoga teacher training in 2018 through Soma Yoga Institute and Better Living Yoga. Lynette also has additional training in Yin Yoga, Yoga Lift, and Yoga Nidra.
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.
