Lyn Kirkman – RYT200
Lyn started her yoga journey in 2015 while searching for a more spiritual way to connect with herself and deal with the struggles of life. She remembered hearing about yoga and its benefits as a college student but never sought it out while in school. Yoga ended up finding her and it wasn’t long before she fell in love with how it made her feel mentally, physically, spiritually and has been practicing ever since. While searching for ways to deepen her practice she found a wonderful teacher training program and wasted no time jumping in.
Lyn has a passion for sharing the knowledge she’s found on her journey and believes by sharing yoga’s joy and positive benefits, along with her personal experiences, she can help others better navigate life’s ups and downs. Yoga transformed her life and helped her rebuild the courage and confidence she thought had been lost and encourages others to be a part of the same transformation.
Lyn is continuing her journey to deepen her practice and education as she starts on her RYT500. She is forever grateful for her experiences thus far and for being given the opportunity to share the powerful and joyful yoga experience with others.
Lyn Kirkman instructs the following:
This upbeat, creative yoga practice, seamlessly linking breath and movement, will keep you present as you learn to move gracefully in and out of poses. Utilizing Sun Salutations, strength building and connected movements, Vinyasa teaches us to cultivate an awareness that links each action to the next—on the mat and in our lives.. A stronger class for those wanting to boost their practice. Yoga experience recommended.
Slow and Strong Yoga
This class is ideal for almost all levels of physical fitness - from the beginner to advanced, or younger to older student - or simply those seeking a more active lifestyle. As we allow ourselves to take our time in a slower-paced yoga practice, we find that our muscles become more supple, our breath deepens, enlivens, and invigorates, and our entire being shifts towards a state of greater balance.
Liberal use of yoga props will be demonstrated throughout the class. But since this is a moderately active and “flowing” style of yoga, if you are more physically fit or experienced you can forgo the use of some props and aim for a more challenging workout.
Stay at your own pace, do only what you feel comfortable with, use yoga props, and take breaks whenever YOU need them. Variations will be given for each posture so that the student can tailor the practice to his or her needs, abilities, or physical limitations. Intermediate intensity with some yoga experience recommended.
