India is a very intriguing place. The deep culture and rituals sustain the people and traditions of India. Benaras a/k/a Varanasi is considered the oldest city in India and the holiest city in the world to Hindus.
Many are not aware of the numerous blessings yoga provides for maturing citizens. I would like to share with you a few reasons why the aging population can benefit from yoga as well as various practices for receiving the blessings offered by yoga.
After working with all populations from children to seniors I realize that there is a vast need and comprehension on how to achieve proper alignment in the body. Many children and adults sit with rainbow rounded backs and can’t even touch their toes.
I wanted to take this opportunity to express heartfelt gratitude to all of you who have allowed me to serve you this year. Service is one virtue I have fully embraced this year amongst the heartbreak of death. I have grieved the death of at least a half a dozen family, friends and animals combined.
I know your first thought must be it is easier said than done. If you are not practicing surrender then you must be doing a lot of controlling. Control mode shifts the mind from thought to thought and from past to future rapidly and results in little or no concentration, poor memory, and no present awareness.
My passion is serving and uplifting humanity through the discipline of yoga and expanding into the freedom of your soul. I know this well because I had to serve and uplift myself and free my soul to be able to experience the power of my passion. When you find your inner guru it will lead you from the dark into the light.
Throughout history symbols and impressions from different cultures have served as powerful implications to help us connect to the meaning of Mother. It is something innate in each of us that defines our connection to our Mother. This is why the experience is so profound for each of us.
This mat is thick and is very similar to the quality of a Manduka mat which I practiced on until it was time to retire it. I am enjoying the quality, thickness, and durability this mat offers.
I know we have all heard the phrase, “Do Your Best.” That term to me feels vague which leaves me asking myself, “What is my best?” When I contemplate “Do your best in the moment” it feels more obtainable based on how I am feeling in this moment.
It is patience that implies self-control. As Thomas Jefferson quoted, “Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.”
To honor the goodness and reveal the beauty of all beings so they may shine brightly from the inside out!
Passion comes from your heart, cultivating that passion comes from disciplining your mind, which brings freedom to your soul.
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!
