Lindsay Lambert (Owner of Paddling Yogini LLC & One Mind Yoga)

Meet Owner Lindsay of Paddling Yogini LLC! She grew up in the Bellevue/Issaquah area of Washington state. She’s been an athlete all of her life, with a 12+ years background in competitive swimming (national ranked) and water polo which ultimately lead to my career in teaching. After completing her 1st of many lifeguard certifications in 1999, she began instructing aquatic based classes at swimming pools, water parks and beaches through 2015. Lindsay’s focus moved in the direction of land-based fitness in 2010. Practicing and teaching Vinyasa Yoga, mat Pilates, PiYo™ and TRX™ (Suspension Training) became her new passion.

Lindsay fell in love with Vinyasa yoga and mat Pilates for the benefits of balance, flexibility & breath awareness. She has a passion for challenging her students & helping them to take their practice to the next level. Inversions, arm balancing, deep bends & twist are just some of her favorite explorations in practice. Lindsay started taking TRX Suspension Training classes for the strength, flexibility and core focused components of the workout. Also, she wanted the 8 pack (abs) she could never achieve with other fitness formats. Quickly she became very passionate about TRX!

Lindsay started her TRX education journey 9 years ago and now has completed the Suspension Training Course (STC), Group Training Course (GTC) qualifications & finally earned her Advanced Group Training Course (AGTC) certification with TRX. In those years she’s created 4 different formats TRX Yoga Fusion, TRX Basics, TRX Core Ball & TRX HIIT.

5 years ago, Lindsay decided to put her knowledge of water and land based exercise together. Through Bliss Paddle Yoga™ she certified as a Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga instructor & certified PaddleFit Core coach through PaddleFit™. Her mobile SUP business- Paddling Yogini LLC was born. She now races, paddles, flows & teaches on paddle boards all over the PNW.

As a teacher, Lindsay’s passion is to make a positive impact on students’ lives. She believes through a healthy mind, body & spirit you can achieve anything. She enjoys teaching all ability levels, beginners to advanced students. As a mother, she feels a healthy lifestyle should be introduced to children at a young age & encouraged through their lives. Lindsay is very passionate about raising her 3 children & helping them learn to lead healthy lives of their own. She has 3 little yogis: a 16 year old daughter who is an artist, writer, & yogini, an 11 year old son, who loves yoga, swimming, SUP & soccer & and infant who loves the water & attending mama’s morning classes each day!
