June is already here another year half gone. Oh dear where has time flown. Looking back what have you accomplished thus far? Did your intentions for this year dwindle to the rear or are you reaping the benefits and transforming these ideas?
Following my heart and setting my intentions has been a life changer. My travels to India earlier this year have opened up new and exciting adventures leaving me no room for fear.
Gratitude to my teachers for their inspiration and teachings!
He made a comment to me, “Oh you teach Ayurveda”
I replied, “No, I specialize in yoga for all populations and ages including functional training, posture alignment, injury prevention and movement education.”
Rajnish replied, “You are only teaching half of what is required for a person to be well. Ayurveda and Yoga work together to prevent disease and bring balance and harmony to the whole body. You cannot teach one without the other.”
The light grew bright and I realized he was right. I am not fully serving my students and clients. The passion in my heart for this knowledge is immense so much I am leaving on July 25th for Kerala, India to study Ayurvedic medicine. I have enrolled into a three month diploma program including yoga therapy, psychology, nutrition, herbology, clinicals and panchakarma (various treatments for managing diseases).
I have been SO amazed at the strength, balance, and flexibility I have gained through yoga training with Lynn!!! Never a flexible child, I got even stiffer with years of wearing high heels, but, with time and practice I recently did a BACKBEND- yes, really!! Yoga is truly a journey, and I can hardly wait to see where it take me next! Practicing yoga for 2 years, age 50 ish.
My testimonial: Impressive knowledge of applied anatomy, Lynn has been instrumental in helping me rehab after several injuries. Her yoga classes are intense physical workouts mixed with an upbeat Anusara philosophy that brings calmness into my day and the improvement in body and mind keeps me coming back to class.
I knew Lynn Geddes Wolling about 20 years ago when she was an aerobics instructor. Last fall, it was my good luck to attend an Anusara yoga class taught by Lynn and a whole new world opened up to me. I’ve been coming back ever since. Lynn’s passion for teaching, energizing, and empowering her yoga students is unparalleled. Through her, a whole new world has opened to me. It is a world that allows me to expand my physical and spiritual boundaries, to become grounded and centered, to bond with other students in the class, and to continue on an exciting journey. Thanks to Lynn and her enthusiastic teaching skills, I am increasing my physical strength and practicing yoga poses that I never thought would be possible. This is a thrilling adventure!
When I started with Lynn I was out of shape and lacking flexibility, but Lynn’s enthusiasm, excellent instruction and the warm atmosphere of the classes helped me to keep on through the challenges. And I always felt great, especially after the class was completed! That was probably three years ago, now I’m a regular at Lynn’s group classes and have an individual session with Lynn once a week. I’m 47 and was starting to feel some twinges in the joints, I’d complained to my doctor about some hip pain, but through my regular yoga practice my hip pain and joint twinges are now gone. I’m still no athlete, nor at my ideal weight, but I am stronger and feel much better because of my regular yoga practice. I’d like to particularly recommend individual sessions with Lynn. Each session, designed to meet my needs, deepens my practice. I’ve learned how to approach familiar poses given the quirks and particular challenges of my body, making my practice easier, safer and more effective. I’ve also learned new poses and modifications to add to my home practice. The whole experience, but particularly the one-on-one sessions, was a confidence-builder. Lynn is an excellent instructor and coach: knowledgeable, creative and encouraging. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
Lynn Geddes Wolling is a Master Teacher!! She truly TEACHES yoga, not just lead a class. She explains the mechanisms of the body systems as she demonstrates a pose and breaks down each pose into doable parts to guide your experience at your personal fitness level! I am so thankful to have found her ! Regardless of your experience with yoga ( I had NONE!), she inspires each student to strive for their personal best!
Beautiful Lynn, Practicing with, and learning from you was a high point for me in Savannah. It feels great to be in the Northeast again. I know that “wherever I go, there you are,” but, in all my travels, there have always been some places that I just feel resonant with and others I don’t. This one I do. The awakening of Savannah did not feel like an endeavor I could get my heart behind, but I see you doing it, with much wisdom and without ego. All blessings to you!
