I endeavor to help my clients live their best lives.
I have a lot of credentials and trainings under my belt - way more than those under my name! But in the end, my greatest teacher was a bike accident that happened a number of years ago. A tumble down a steep hill, which lasted no more than 30 seconds, triggered a grueling physical rehabilitation, years of limited movement, 8 years of constant pain, disrupted sleep, and a permanent case of Post Traumatic Fibromyalgia. Emotional recovery was equally slow. The reality that I would never look “even” again, coupled with chronic pain and an extended period of sleep disruption triggered a major situational depression. So before I became a yoga teacher, therapist, health and wellness coach and Buteyko Breathing practitioner, I was a person in serious need of all those services! What makes me so passionate about my work now is the fact that those very disciplines are what's brought me personally back to wholeness. The best salesperson is the happy customer, no?
My mission is to help my clients live their best lives. To do that, I had to pick up a lot of pieces and figure out what to make of the rest of my own life. For me that meant an entire career change — I was a VP at ESPN at the time of my accident with a career managing national publications–in addition to the whole physical reclamation. I understand first hand about attachment to the past and anticipation/anxiety about the future.
I have a lot of powerful tools at my disposal, but the most important aspect I can bring to your healing journey is a total and complete belief in your healing potential. Work can be done in person or over the phone. For coaching—did I mention how awesome coaching is?—work is actually best done on the telephone or over Skype, which means it can happen at the odd hours when you are at lunch, before or after work, or from any time zone. We can work in one discipline, such as therapeutic yoga, or maybe a blended experience is best for you. The same goes for Buteyko, which is a simple, easy-to-learn breathing technique that has a whole spectrum of amazing benefits.
The best way to see whether you and I are good fit is to have a conversation—everybody gets a free 15-minute consult. So if you're interested, check out my website at yogalynn.com and give a shout to set up a chat.
