Lin is a lifelong student of movement and energy. In yoga she discovered a magnificent melding of mind, body and spirit – and in asana, a divine dance of the heart. Each time Lin steps onto her mat, the practice teaches her something new about herself.Lin’s teaching style blends clear and concise alignment, poetry and sacred texts, artful expression and playful exploration. She strives to create classes where students connect to their inherent beauty, strength, divinity and grace.

Lin’s primary teachers include Sianna Sherman, Bob Hoffa, Matt Newman and Jami Larson. She has also had the honor of studying with KK Ledford, Dharma Mittra, Desiree Rumbaugh, Noah Maze, and Rod Stryker. She is deeply grateful to all her teachers for their insight, wisdom and generosity.

What do you find most inspiring about being a yoga instructor?
I am continually awed by the courage, strength and vulnerability that people bring to their practice. Being willing to show up on your mat, again and again, to care for your body, mind and soul is incredible!

How has your life/body changed since becoming a practitioner of yoga?
Yes, my body has changed.  But much more importantly, my relationship with my body has changed! I’m comfortable in my own skin.

What qualities do you love in people?
Authenticity & Kindness – be utterly, totally real and do it all with kindness.

What advice would you give someone just beginning on their yoga journey?
I love this quote from Jon Acuff: “Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle”!
Each person’s journey is their own.  Experience YOUR journey.

What is unique about your teaching style?
I’ve had many students tell me that I “trick” them into poses they never thought they could do.
I combine myth and metaphor with very intentional sequencing to prepare bodies and hearts for where we’re headed.

What is your favorite book?
The Hounds of The Morrigan by Pat O’Shea – I’ve read it at least once a year since I was 10.

When you aren’t working, what do you like to do?
Hang out with my hubby and fur-babies, read, and spend time in nature.

Why should someone come to WAY to practice yoga?
WAY is such a sweet, fun and welcoming community – you can come not knowing anyone, and leave knowing everyone :)
