As a RISD graduate, Linda worked in the design/advertising world for many years in various cities on the east coast. In an effort to balance a hectic work schedule, she attended her first yoga class in Boston in 1997, and was hooked from the start. After leaving the corporate world and moving to Arizona in 2003, Linda obtained her 500-hour yoga certification, and has since taught various styles of yoga in health clubs, yoga studios, luxury resorts and spas, and several corporations. She is grateful to have studied with many inspiring teachers along the way, including Rod Stryker, Shiva Rea, Saul David Raye, and her main teacher Mary Bruce.
Linda's teaching weaves together principals of alignment, intelligent sequencing, awareness of breath and yoga philosophy, with thoughtful readings, themes, visual meditations and inspiring music. She believes yoga is all about awareness and encourages her students to fully experience the benefits and transformations yoga will provide. As a certified holistic health coach (and a forever student), Linda is committed to learning how to live the best life possible, in order to share that knowledge, awareness and passion with others... and inspire them to do the same.
