Welcome to Yoga With Lynne~
It is said that when you are ready your teacher will appear! My wish for you is that you find a teacher that makes you feel safe on your mat. A teacher that creates a space for you to grow in and through your yoga practice. When you find your teacher you won’t feel embarrassed falling out of half-moon pose or crying in Savasana. Your teacher pushes you gently to your edge without making you feel any expectations or judgement. A true teacher guides you to your own personal Sat-Guru, the one that dwells within each of us. If you are already one of my precious students, thank you for sharing your beautiful practice with me. If we have not met yet, please allow me to audition to be your teacher and to help you learn to heal yourself through the ancient wisdom of yoga!

In the summer of this year I was playing tennis three times each week and walking 2-3 miles a day about 4 days a week. Then something changed. I was so stiff in my hip joints that I could hardly move to play tennis or walk with my friends. My legs felt like two stumps. Eventually I started taking ibuprofen several days a week just to help with the pain. I went to an Integrative Medicine session to see if I was eating something or having an autoimmune reaction to something that was causing this change to no avail. I thought I would have to give up tennis and cardio exercise forever. Then one day I stumbled upon Lynne’s Yin yoga classes offered each week at a local studio and decided to tried it out, not expecting any particular result. I was astonished at the improvement. My hip pain decreased as my flexibility improved. I am only able to attend one day a week, but even at just that, I have not taken an oral analgesic for over a month now and can run on the tennis court without pain or flexibility issues. I consider this amazing. I am so grateful to have found Lynne’s class and what I believe is the secret for me to exercise at my age. (60)
I attend a yoga class with a group of older persons at the Oakland University Recreation Center. Prior to attending this Yoga class, I basically had no prior experience with Yoga. After having attended this class for ? years my knowledge about yoga has increased enough to convince me that this particular class procedure was extremely well thought-out by our instructor. By that, I mean at our general ages of the late seventies and above, the specific areas of Yoga presented fits our age group to a “T”. We do not go through the typical series of rapid pose changes. Instead we concentrate on doing fewer poses and stretching in the areas we ‘old folks’ need and appreciate to improve the general feeling of stiffness. And needless to say, the poses and stretching we are given, greatly improve our mobility and flexibility, and are most appreciated.. Bottom line is that we appreciate the type of Yoga given to our group which helps us keep nimble and flexible.
Lynne is a teacher who really gives her all every class to every student.
I still consider myself somewhat of a “beginner” when it comes to yoga, as I have only been practicing for a little over six months. I have fallen in love with the practice though, so when I learned about Lynne & company’s 108 Sun Salutations for a Cure, I was very excited to join in. I have heard a lot about yoga retreats and whatnot, so I felt like this would be a good way to get insight into something other than just your basic yoga class. The physical, spiritual and emotional high I was on all weekend was a beautiful thing. I knew yoga could be physical, calming and healing, but I had no idea it could be so inspirational and spiritual. I feel so lucky to have found something that is so fulfilling, and I couldn’t thank Lynne enough for being a fantastic teacher. I hope to participate in other yoga events/retreats in the future!
Lynne, your yoga classes have helped me tremendously. I sit a lot at work and hence had some lower back issues. When I started coming to your classes my hips were very tight but through consistent practice I have relief in my back and I have become much more flexible. The classes have given me confidence in many aspects of my life and I look forward to your classes because I know I will feel better mentally and spiritually. I will ALWAYS recommend your classes to anyone looking to start yoga. Many thanks!
Lynne, While I try to be mindful of all of the good people and things in my life, this time of year serves as a reminder. One of the things I am grateful for this year is finding your Yin Yoga class. Though I’ve only recently started, physically I am already much stronger and more flexible. The part that I didn’t expect was the emotional change. The past 5 years have been very difficult for me and coming to your class has helped. I look forward to it every week. I want to thank you for the tone you set and the way you guide each class. It is my small piece of time for me and my sanctuary. Thank you , again.
“I love Yin with Lynne. I’m a 55+ student who decided to try Lynne’s class in order to develop core strength and find inner peace.I was afraid to practice yoga again. I injured my shoulder and knee previously at one of the “popular” studios in the area. Lynne is incredibly knowledgeable about anatomy, and guides students into the postures while being sensitive to each student’s limitations. My injured shoulder was pain free after my first class with Lynne! I feel my body changing as a result of this practice. My balance and flexibility have improved noticeably. I leave each session feeling grounded both physically and mentally. Lynne is the best!”
