Yoga found Lindsay at a young age as a teenager while she was studying at a contemporary dance intensive. She completed her teacher training at the age of 22 and holds a BFA in Dance. Her teaching over the last decade has taken her on various residencies around the world and within the United States.

She bows deeply to all of her teachers for the wisdom and inspiration they have passed on to her, which she continues to ignite in others.

What People Are Saying
Some have asked me, “Why aerial yoga? Why not regular yoga” This approach is much gentler for those who have had injuries and surgeries, but it is still hard work, making the body stronger while lengthening muscles and tendons to help avoid future injuries. For me, it is like being back in the dance studio, only up a little higher… which is way more fun!
Restorative aerial yoga, which uses a lower height, is also good for people who suffer from chronic pain issues such as fibromyalgia or arthritis. I have seen my body evolve into a much healthier being with not only a stronger core but with more muscular legs and arms, too. I’m very pleased with my progress and my healthier me!
“Lindsay is a passionate teacher who cares about her students’ growth in teaching yoga and yogic philosophy. She is kind and makes herself accessible to her students so that she can answer course questions. Her background in Dance, Pilates, Circus Arts, and Yoga radiates through her explorative personality. Her approach to teaching is supportive. Lindsay makes each student feel valued while she encourages students to improve so that they may teach her curriculum in their own “authentic voice”.
Lindsay lives the life of a true yogi. She is disciplined in spiritual and physical yogic practices. She truly promotes love and kindness. After completing Oracle Yin Yoga and Rising Wings Aerial Yoga Yoga with Lindsay I was inspired to go on to complete my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with her Yoga Alliance school, Samanova Yoga. I found that introducing Lindsay’s meditation techniques into my life on a more regular basis to be transformative. Her courses challenge me to live my best life. I am grateful for Lindsays Nova’s unique education in Yoga and blessed to continue to learn from her.”
