Sherry Wakefield, RYT – After practicing yoga for many years I fulfilled a dream and completed a 200 Hour RYT certification in 2013. I wanted to share my passion and enthusiasm and what a better way than to teach. I enjoy an active life style and find yoga as the perfect balance on the physical, mental and spiritual level. My class will be a space filled with no judgments, kindness and happiness for each to share or enjoy their own yoga experience as they choose, as I will be the first to admit I am far from perfect in all the postures (Just be you!). Hope to see you at one of my classes, remember yoga is not about touching your toes, it’s about you learn on the way down! Namasté.
Linda has been practicing yoga for over 40 years and simply can't imagine life without it. Her passion for yoga led her to become a certified teacher in both Kripalu and Kundalini styles of yoga. Her goal is to lead her students to find peace within and then to share that sense of peace with the outside world. In her classes, Linda encourages her students to approach their mats as safe spaces where they can experience the pleasure and joy of their physical practice as well as investigate any source of discomfort, unease, or fear in their lives. In short, yoga becomes a bridge to many places where the lessons learned on the mat translate into lessons about oneself and life. In short, yoga is so much more than the pose!
Linda recently moved to Center Harbor with her husband John. She is proud of her two lovely daughters and adores her two young grandchildren. Additionally, Linda's interest in natural healing has led her to become a Reiki master and a Tapping Coach.
