More Than Poses
We practice staying CALM when facing difficulty.
We cultivate COURAGE by challenging ourselves to try new positions, sequences, and approaches to old poses.
We BALANCE EFFORT & EASE so that we meet our daily activities with grace and create less tension in our relationships with others and ourselves.
We observe the fluctuations of our mind and body to BUILD our STRENGTH in choosing what's best rather than reacting out of habit, obligation or fear.
We OPEN our EYES to new ideas and create space for creativity to spark within us.
We FREE OURSELVES from tension in body and mind.
We LEARN techniques to maintain our cool, prevent dis-ease, and rebalance in a changing world.
Our on the mat practice is what we make it to be. I invite you to join me in a practice that clears the path for living well and being of good service to our communities. Time on the mat is an investment that provides a quick return off the mat for you and those around you.
This is my reward for a hard day.
This is the most relaxed I have ever been in my life.
You help me feel good physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

In addition, she facilitates the yoga practice in a way that allows you to pick the pose variations that work best for your body and energy level.
Integrating techniques for mind, body and spirit, held and flowing postures are explored. Lynn Marie teaches all yoga students, public and private, to move with breath honoring your body's unique needs.
