Lydia began her yoga journey in April of 2013, days before her 29th birthday. Looking for a low impact form of exercise, yoga seemed to be the perfect option. As a former ballet dancer, she needed a form of movement that was gentle on the joints, but still offered a physical and mental challenge. She fell in love with yoga right away.


After 2 years of cultivating a daily yoga practice, she decided to embark on yoga teacher training with Sara Da Costa and Michele Tampa Hoag through the 200 Hour Samdhaana Yoga Training. Lydia graduated from training in April 2016 and has been teaching ever since.


Lydia’s love of arm balances, deep stretch, and creative flows brings a well-rounded funky spark to her classes. Expect encouragement, a challenge, and a fun playlist when coming to her class!
