Everything is connected, your wrist bone to your shoulder bone, your hip bone to your ankle bone, you to your community, your community to your world. This interconnection is vital to understanding the benefits of yoga. This holistic system simultaneously taps into many mechanisms that have additive and multiplicative effects. The reason you come in to do yoga will ultimately lead to added benefits you hadn’t originally thought of or intended.

Lindsay earned her 200 RYT certification through Nadi Yogi with Ben Heath and Hilly Flora. She credits their authenticity, passion, and immense knowledge for taking her yoga practice and her everyday life practice to an unimaginable level. Lindsay finds the practice of yoga to be a playful exploration of the human body and mind and how they can flow and work together or against each other. Lindsay looks forward to the continued inspiration, laughter, and strength that her students bring to her life. When not teaching yoga, Lindsay can be found training for an upcoming kayak race or just enjoying the view from the water.
I am originally from New York and moved to Austin in May of 2012. I have practiced yoga for years and decided to deepen my practice and share my love of yoga with others. Since November 2011, I have been a 200 hour Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher certified in Gaia Flow Yoga, an Ashtanga based power flow practice. As a yoga instructor, I teach both powerful and gentle asanas, or body positions, and can tailor my classes to the individual needs of my students.
Brian came to yoga in his late teens, as a way to channel his energy and explore the body’s limits. It immediately called to him as something very sacred, yet very real and exciting. He kept up his practice during the following ten seasons of a competitive collegiate and professional baseball career. Brian loves how yoga promotes a space of peace and calm, even when the outside whirlwind is all around. Since moving to Austin, he has found a wonderful array of studios and teachers, and credits his teachers Tolo Perry, Osho, Iyengar, and Sumukhi for shaping his style and philosophy. Expect a calm, peaceful, yet challenging and focused hatha and/or vinyasa flow.
