Lynda Ferrara, Registered Yoga Teacher
Lynda’s intention when she sought recovery in 1988 was to stop the emotional pain and hopelessness that addiction had inflicted upon her life. One day at a time that darkness has turned to Light, allowing her to move forward on a beautiful journey of self-discovery. After building a solid foundation in 12-Steps for several years, she was introduced to the powerful practice of yoga. Lynda became a yoga instructor in 2009 under the loving guidance of Sheryl and Neil Edsall. She has since completed a 100 hr. training for “Yoga of Recovery” counseling and is also a certified Reiki practitioner.
The passion and compassion that yoga embodies is the place that Lynda teaches from. Her classes are filled with a comfortable weave of breath, sound, movement, and meditation, where students feel safe and supported regardless of their experience with the practice. She inspires them to tap into their own inner strength and courage that will allow for blissful balance on, as well as off, of the mat. With an open heart full of gratitude, Lynda is honored to be given the opportunity to share the hope that her path of yoga and recovery has so sweetly blessed her with.

Sean Meyers, Kundalini Teacher, KRI certified
Facing a crossroads in life, Yoga and meditation presented itself to Sean in 2007 through a profound series of synchronicities and his practice has grown ever since. A keen interest in the practice of pranayama led him to all styles of yoga including Hatha, Vinyasa, Kripalu and more. His love for the practice grew and eventually led to the discovery of Kundalini Yoga, which deeply resonated with him. Sean’s yoga practice helped stabilize him through even the most turbulent times of his spiritual journey, and continues to guide him towards a purpose greater than just himself.
Sean has always been naturally drawn to teaching as a service to his own soul and the benefit of others. A musician since childhood, Sean began teaching drum lessons in his teens, and after graduating with a degree in Jazz studies in 2014, he immediately began teaching music increasingly more and with a greater sense of purpose. Knowing that his teaching would go beyond just music, he embarked on a Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training under Mahan Rishi Singh Khalsa and Nirbhe Kaur Khalsa in 2016. Sean will also have completed a 50 hour Yin Yoga teacher training by June of 2017. Sean often incorporates drums and percussion into his yoga classes.
Teaching yoga allows Sean to uplift the community and be a vehicle for individuals to realize their own inner teacher. It is his greatest hope that he can help others as many of his teachers have helped him.
