Spring has sprung and new life has begun. As we come out of the dark and cold conditions of Winter and into the light and warm conditions of Spring it is the perfect time to nurture our internal environment while enjoying the external environment. We all start feeling Spring Fever and want to be more outdoors in nature.
Along with Spring comes aggravations like mucous conditions, sinusitis, allergies, congestion, runny nose, itchy eyes, rashes, sore throats and more sensitivity in our respiratory system.

I am pleased to announce that I am now offering Ayurveda Counseling and Therapy Services in addition to Yoga Therapy. They are considered sister sciences and work together to provide an integrative holistic healthcare approach for the whole body mind complex.
Ayurveda is a holistic system of healing which gives us the real knowledge on how to know oneself and lead a healthy long life. One of my professors stated, “Know who you are.” This statement profoundly resonated with me.
Once you know who you are then you can begin to understand what is going right and wrong with yourself and learn what habits to develop and discard to bring balance and harmony in the body mind complex.
Making Herbal Medicines from roots, bark, leaves and lots of love!

The true value of Yoga is a clear path for understanding one’s true nature for Self-realization, not limiting yourself to asanas for physical fitness and stress management. We have a dual mind one that is attached to the five senses and the second mind which is the higher intellect that uses discernment and willpower to overcome being a slave to your senses.
Yoga brings the self from being imprisoned by the mind so the mind and Self are one with the body and there is no division between body, mind, and Self. (Self with a capital S meaning your highest self).
Blessings of love and deep gratitude to Kindred Yoga and Wellness for the warm welcome of love and appreciation that have given me. I cannot thank them enough for welcoming me into their yoga community as a leader in Yoga and Ayurveda education.

I would like to add our newest offerings of sound healing with Indian Classical Music. My husband Jimmy and I owe profound gratitude and love to our teachers Deobrat Mishra and Prashant Mishra for teaching and sharing the ancient knowledge of traditional Indian Classical Music they are so deeply rooted in.
We may not ever achieve their level of expertise in this lifetime but we will die trying. The music takes you to the depths of the unknown and reveals so much from a place of longing and fulfillment. This music literally pulls at the string of your heart so much that Jimmy and I named our performance presentations Strings of the Heart. You can hear snippets of our music on Reverbnation/Strings of the Heart.
Many thanks and praises to all of you who have supported us in the past, who continue to support us and who will support us in the future.
My life’s passion is to help all of you who are seeking a life of health and happiness to grow and support the vision of living a life that reflects your values and attitudes for growth and human potential. Together we can grow to support a life that nourishes and feeds our souls to achieve true wellness of the body mind complex.
Love and Blessings,
Lynn Geddes Wolling
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!
