Yoga Flow
Yoga Flow is a mindful creative blend of traditional and contemporary variations of flowing yoga postures (asanas), breath-work, and functional strength and flexibility movements. This class allows time and space to find more balance and spaciousness in the body/mind, and compassionate connection to oneself. 

Lynda's Bio
Lynda is an RYT-500 and has been teaching for 10 and practicing for 20 years.  She’s been a professional dancer with renowned companies such as Dance Theatre of Harlem, Suzanne Farrell, Donald Byrd/The Group, Twyla Tharp Dance, Movin’ Out First National Tour and Broadway Companies, and the Stratford Festival of Canada. The practice of yoga has been an important support throughout her career by helping her to maintain a balanced flow of flexibility and strength both physically and mentally. Over the years, as the positive balancing physical benefits grew, she became more curious about the inner world exploration yoga provides. This curiosity lead her to dive deeper and complete her 200-hour certification with Prana Yoga Teacher’s College, 500-hour certification with the Zenyasa Yoga & Wellness Studio, a 108-hour Anatomy Studies for Yoga Teachers with Jason Ray Brown, 100-hour Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training with Jillian Pransky, and a pre-natal certification with Carrie Parker Gastelu.  She also is a facilitator in Social Presencing Theater (SPT), a mindful movement form utilizing embodied presence practices for personal and collective creative transformation.  

In addition to group classes, Lynda specializes in teaching one-to-one sessions, as well as teaching for organizations and institutions. She’s been a trusted yoga and wellness teacher for places such as Fordham University, Yeshiva University, Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute, Bronx-Lebanon Hospital and NYU Langone Hospital. 

In sharing yoga and movement, she aims to infuse students with the joys of living in their bodies with deeper awareness and compassionate connection, and encourages them to carry this feeling into all aspects of their lives.
