Lydia (RYT 500) began her exploration with yoga over seven years ago and completed her (RYT 200) teacher training in November 2013 as well as her (RYT 500) advanced teacher training in July 2016, both at the Om Joyful School of Yoga. She is also a graduate of the Yoga. Psyche. Soul, Advanced Yoga Psychology Teacher Training and is integrating her background in Psychology with the healing practices of Yoga to help her students find internal transformation. Lydia’s practice is informed by the idea that yoga is not just what we do on our mats, but the way we live our lives. She believes that we are all life-long students and continue to pursue an education in yoga and the healing arts. This ongoing process of learning is what provides fresh insights that inspire her teaching. Healthy breathing, alignment, and balanced energy flow are consistent points of focus in her classes. Lydia’s teaching style is intuitive and nourishes the hidden strengths of her students while at the same time challenging them to reach beyond their perceived limitations. In her classes, she uses a mixture of Yoga Psychology styles and breath work, allowing students to find Peace, Love, and Compassion as they grow both on and off the mat with the ultimate goal of living life to their fullest potential.
