Lydia began her yoga journey in April of 2013. Looking for a low impact form of exercise, yoga seemed to be the perfect option. As a former ballet dancer, she needed a form of movement that was gentle on the joints, but still expressive, and she fell in love with yoga right away. Her journey with yoga coincided with the opening of Synergy Yoga and Wellness and it was a perfect fit straightaway. After 2 years of almost daily yoga classes she decided to embark on yoga teacher training with Sara Cain Da Costa and Michele Tampa Hoag through the 200 Hour Samdhaana Training created by Melody White of Sacred Space in Mt. Airy, NC. Lydia graduated from teacher training in April 2016 and has been teaching ever since. Lydia's love of arm balances, deep stretch and creative flows brings a well rounded funky spark to her classes. Expect encouragement, a challenge and a fun playlist when coming to her class!
