Mentorship ReviewI would like to thank Linda for her patience and expertise she gave in the journey we took together. I went into it believing I’d come out being a super-bad-ass-fine-tuned-yogi. That’s great and in time i’ll get mayurasana. Even more so, I left with the longing for a much deeper understanding and meaning to my life— my life and how yoga has been and is still apart of it. This mentorship program asked me to pause and reflect why I am really a yogi. Sometimes all I wanted to do was just get on the mat and practice away, but then I’d still have that feeling of seeking without knowing why. “What happens when I don’t have my mat and can’t practice?” I was petrified to ask deeper questions; questions that would beg me look inside myself. I was scared to face those thoughts as they came up in my readings, practice and writings. Linda’s mentoring taught me how to look within to be a conscious individual in our society— how to listen, be picky about what I absorb into my temple and also how to observe intensely. I was encouraged to ask how can I truly see, feel, move and continually learn (observing, reading and listening). I am truly humbled to have been mentally shaken and physically challenged. I have new literature and a fresh perspective on my practice and an awakening of my spirituality. To embark on this mentorship is to embark on the unknown. I now have a deeper appreciation for God, myself, my ability to practice, my teachers (especially Linda), the individuals in my life (especially my boyfriend & ‘grammi), my pets and my loved ones. Everyday I wake up, I think of my intentions, my next practice, readings and God in my life. I am more grateful for it all.Thank you,Ayo C. Walters
Linda brings her deep passion for yoga to every single class and invites you to feel it with her. Starting with a beautiful message or reading to think on during meditation, moving slowly through a flow, she builds up to moments where you are challenging yourself to the fullest, in a position you didn’t think you could do and then here you are doing it! Her guidance is clear and her hands on adjustments show you exactly how the positions need to be and what areas in the position to focus on. She’s considerate of the lighting and music, knowing that everything plays a part in enjoying a yoga class. During early morning winter classes, we begin in the dark and move until the sun rises at 8am, the best way to begin the day! Linda gives the right balance of yoga theory with technique that makes you feel like you’re really learning and developing a practice, not just going through the motions. She’s helped me with my concentration, alignment, physical strength and flexibility as well as breathing techniques. Thank you Linda for a full and rewarding 15 months of teachings. Thank you for inviting me to dedicate to it and build upon it.
I love working with Linda.She is truly special, there is an energy and honesty she cultivates in her teachings that are highly transferable and magnetic.She creates spaces for people that are inclusive, open and non-judgmental, and most importantly are playful– reminding us to get back to our inner children in this serious world and just have some fun. Her teachings are very relatable to the real world, as she tells genuine stories about the struggles we all work to overcome and offers simple practices to move in the direction of positivity. Working with Linda for an hour, whether it be a class, workshop or essential oil session, has been a guaranteed pick up for my day. I highly recommend all three! I find that those hours spent with her ripple through my entire week and are highlights of my year, ultimately giving me a stronger sense of optimism, grounding to my self, and connection to others around me.I have a stressful job that is demanding and constantly changing, but working with Linda has brought me serenity and perspective to my week, which leaves me better prepared to handle the week and create a positive impact at work and in my life overall.
Linda is more than a yoga teacher. She is embraced in our community as an empowerment coach, spiritual guide and a force of nature for women, young and old. She is a rare breath of honesty in a world often clouded by superficiality and an obsession with image. By offering up her vulnerability and very human experiences and feelings, Linda offers all of us a refreshing reminder that we are okay; we are beautiful, we are evolving and we are “perfectly imperfect”. I look forward to reading Linda’s teachings as it encourages me to be less critical and more kind to my inner-self. Thank you Linda.
Linda is a wonderful teacher who gives students individual attention while leading the class through energizing or calming flows.
I am a Yoga snob and have been in many studios around the city. I have stopped going to other studios since I found this one. Linda’s is an intimate space and she is able to offer 1:1 guidance during classes. Her level of expertise is also above majority of teachers.
Linda is an extremely knowledgable teacher who brings you deeper into your understanding of the practice. Every class is an exploration of the mind/body relationship with Linda’s thoughtful instruction and focus on the teaching or theme of the month. The studio has a wonderful community, and I literally can not wait to get to class. You will love Linda and the overall vibe.
