Yoga has been instrumental in changing my life into a happier and more meaningful existence. I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and now, I love to share my knowledge as I live, travel and become more rich with contentment.Travelling and volunteering teaching underprivileged women and children yoga has taught me to trust myself, be fearless and to become established in the NOW. It also places me in a divine state of gratitude and joy. I took the 500 hour yoga alliance certified course, as well as Yoga Therapy certification at the Paramanand Institute of Yoga Sciences and Research Centre in India . Through the intense teachings I came to know and believe that Joy is my true inheritance and that sharing my light with others will help them come to the same understanding. Happiness is ours for the taking,In joy, there is no hierarchy, Linda.
