Lyndsey's deep rooted passion for the wisdom and the innate resilience of the human body has fueled her work as a massage therapist, a yoga instructor and a Qoya teacher.  Her classes are an invitation to sink deeply into the sensations of the body, the breath and the present moment through fluid flows and unique soundscapes.  Lyndsey teaches classes, workshops and retreats in Asheville NC and abroad.  She teaches various styles of classes at Asheville Yoga Center and Hot Yoga Asheville. Lyndsey's offerings are deeply internal. They are infused with deep peace and compassion, stemming from her love of deep reflection, solitude, and embracing life as an introvert.
