Yoga Junkie, Dog Lover & Food fanatic. I am a former real estate paralegal who decided to trade in my heels for barefeet. Yoga gave me the freedom to be myself. I used to be a gymnast & dancer so when I found yoga it brought me back to all the things I loved as a kid. I remember the quote "If you ever lose site of your passion, revert back to what you loved most when you were a child." Those words really hit home for me & I decided to live my life to the fullest. I discovered through both my faith & time on my mat that I could let go of things in the past that I'd held on to. Yoga healed the internal pain I experienced & truly gave me the strength to express my full authenticity. I think my biggest take aways from the practice of yoga include being humble, authentic, kind, grateful. My passion lives in inspiring others to bring all of these qualities into their lives. There's so much more to this beautiful practice than the physical asana...it can transform your soul in away that gives you infinite freedom. Who wouldn't want to share that with the world?

After sixteen years of practicing yoga, I felt inspired to take TPY Teacher Training to deepen my own practice with no expectation that I might one day teach. As training progressed, I found myself drawn to the possibility of teaching in order to give back some small measure of the gifts my teachers have given me over the years. As a teacher, I hope that I am able to share what I find beautiful about yoga with others.
I am lucky to have the staunch support of my husband, John, our two sons, Johnny and Nate, and our dog, Buddy."

My career and my family defined me until around 2012 when I began to transform my occasional yoga practice into a journey of deep inquiry, asana, community and lots of sweat! I began to study the deeper and centuries old reason for stepping on to our mats and why we hold our poses, why we focus on deep breath in and out. What followed was personal growth fueled by inner tapas that burned away layers of distortion to reveal innate awareness and connection that fully changed my life off the mat.
When Thunderbolt Power Yoga opened in Buckhead and eventually had the first teacher training early 2015 I took the teaching plunge! I never saw myself as a yoga teacher, that seemed like too lofty of a goal for the person I thought I was. But through our close and extended teaching community I opened up and developed a love for the journey of teaching that transformed me for good. My heart is now consistently full with gratitude for our community and the peacefulness that this journey has brought to my life.
When I’m not practicing yoga or working at an office, you can find me out with Winston, my 13 year old terrier mix, or spending time with friends and family around the city I love. Or if I’m lucky I could be boarding a plane, yoga mat in hand, to someplace I’ve never been as world travel is my passion!Follow Lynn on Instagram
