Regular People ~ Real Yoga
We are a regular husband and wife with two children. We happened upon athletic yoga back in 1998 when we were living in South Florida and both working more typical jobs. (Rae Lynn as an occupational therapist and Jeff owning a pool company.) We were hooked. We found yoga was the most intelligent system of health promotion we had ever experienced.
We started to practice yoga regularly as our favorite "feel-GREAT" form of mind-body fitness. We immediately began to experience renewed vitality, energy, increased strength, weight-loss, and decreased body aches for our then "mid-30's" bodies. We found that a regular yoga practice goes far beyond physical exercise and yields profound personal growth. We found that the mindfullness of yoga practice connected us to greater degrees of consciousness. Yoga brought us to a place of deeper mental balance, inner calm and strengthened our ability to live more fully in the experience of the present moment. Yoga was a grounding and fun element in our lives, keeping us mentally and physically balanced. We could not keep all this to ourselves, we had to share. In January 2002, living the quote of Helen Keller "life is a great adventure or nothing at all", we left our "typical jobs" in South Florida and r.v.ed cross-country with our son (then 3 years old). We lived in San Francisco for 4 months taking our first Yoga Alliance 200 hour instructor trainings.
After completing our first teacher trainings, we continued to follow our hearts and moved to Maine opening YOGA ON YORK (established July 2002). Our daily sharing of the transformational benefits of yoga with others is our life on purpose.... a great joy!
We welcome you to YOGA ON YORK and to the powerful journey of yoga.
