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!

In August 2017, Lindsay opened One Mind Yoga – Issaquah where she can offer certified TRX Training, yoga for all ages/abilities, foam rolling, family fitness and Stand-Up-Paddleboard fitness! Her studio is very welcoming to all walks of life and no matter where you are with your fitness journey, you’ll find the support you need! Contact her today: Info@OneMind.Yoga

Lori (Owner of Morning Glory Yoga)

Meet Lori of Morning Glory Yoga! Lori grew up in New Jersey and spent most of her adult life in Indianapolis. She moved to Issaquah in 2015 and absolutely loves life in the Pacific Northwest. Lori has been practicing yoga since 1999. Although she was initially attracted to yoga for the physical challenge, she soon came to appreciate the more mindful benefits of her yoga practice. Making a positive difference in people’s lives is important to Lori, so as her personal practice grew she wanted to bring yoga to other people. Lori earned her 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Certificate at All People Yoga Center in Indianapolis in 2002 and studied Iyengar Yoga for several years with Jyoti Hansa. She began teaching vinyasa yoga at various yoga studios in Indianapolis in 2002 and appreciates any opportunity to share the joy of yoga with others.
Lori aspires to integrate the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of yoga in her classes through alignment, conscious breathing, and mindfulness. She begins each class with few moments of centering and focused breathing and ends each class with 5-10 minutes of deep relaxation. Throughout her classes, Lori links movement with breath and provides verbal cues to help students maintain some mindfulness of their body. She hopes you will come to her classes ready to learn and laugh and leave feeling more peaceful, joyful, and contented. Contact her today: lorieheath@live.com
