Linda discovered Yoga thirty years ago, when she stumbled upon a book by Richard Hittleman entitled Yoga: 28 Day Exercise Plan. With this book, she taught herself classic Yoga poses, and thus began what would eventually become a passionate connection to Yoga. Over the years, Linda continued to make Yoga a valued part of her life.
An avid runner, swimmer, hiker and outdoor enthusiast, Linda values the many ways Yoga helps her develop the strength, flexibility, and body awareness to pursue these activities in a healthy and supportive way for her body. She loves the way in which Yoga balances her physically, mentally, and spiritually in all aspects of her life.
Linda currently teaches 1st-3rd grade and Yoga classes for children at Little Earth School in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she has taught since 1993. She has been teaching children’s and family Yoga classes at Bhava Yoga Studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico since 2015. Linda loves teaching Yoga to children who model joyful, playful exploration, reminding her to cultivate joy and playfulness in her own Yoga practice. Linda is passionate about sharing the benefits of yoga with children as well as families. She helped start a very successful Goat Yoga program at Wildlife West in Edgewood, New Mexico, where she discovered a love for sharing Yoga with adults as well, leading them to also find joy and playfulness in their Yoga practice. Linda developed a very successful after school Yoga program for a school in New Mexico.
