Lydia (RYT500) is a yoga teacher, reiki practitioner, and breath coach from rural Maryland. She leads Vinyasa and Hatha style classes with the intention to create a warm environment in which you may freely explore your practice on and off the mat.
Lydia was drawn to yoga from the moment she stepped into a studio. Through mindful movement and awareness, she developed a loving relationship with her body, and discovered the deeper internal benefits of yoga.
Compelled to share this powerful practice with the world, Lydia began teaching yoga and fitness classes in 2015. She went on to complete her 200-hour teacher training at Asheville Yoga Center in 2017, became a certified Group Fitness Instructor through ACE in 2018, and graduated from her 300-hour training at Thrive Yoga in 2020.
Lydia is also driven by her awe of nature. Through the practices of yoga, she aims to reunite each one of us with our natural, animal, authentic self. She believes that when we care for ourselves as beings of this earth, we will better care for each other and the planet. This deeper connection with nature gifts us with compassion for ourselves and others, as well as a feeling of being home.
In her classes, Lydia hopes you will experience the joy of movement, the vitality of your breath, and the peace of presence. On your mat you will find a deeper understanding and love for your body and your self. That relationship will stay with you as you step off of your mat and into the world.
