Lynn Theodose & Nicole Boyle

Co-Leader: Lynn Theodose spent 8 years and thousands of hours on the island of Kauai in deep immersion with her teacher, Bhavani Maki, a long-time student of Pattabhi Jois, in the lineage of Sri Krishnamacharya. Her studies there included intense exploration of the Astanga yoga system and the intricacies of the 8-limbed path, as laid out in the Patanjali Yoga Sutra. She began teaching in 2009. Since returning to the mainland in 2014, Lynn has continued to refine her personal practice and teaching style. Her classes draw from the wisdom of her lineage and the classic teachings of Yoga philosophy, with a strong focus on alignment, breath, and the meditative experience of asana.

Co-Leader: Nicole Boyle

Nicole’s, owner of In Balance Yoga in Blacksburg VA, favorite weekend of the year is Floyd Yoga Jam.  She is honored to co-lead one of the Floyd Yoga Jam Mini-Retreats and help share the mission of the sweet festival.  Nicole loves nature, the outdoors, service and community.  Nicole did one of her 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings with Dharma Mittra and will offer Dharma Yoga, pranayama, meditation, kirtan and karma yoga this weekend.

Floyd Yoga Jam Mini-Retreat – June 28-30, 2019

 

Allow the artificial world the fall away and immerse yourself in an environment ripe for accessing your innate creativity and intuition. Through mindful observation and interactions with our natural world, you will have the opportunity to renew your beginners mind and experience your own nature in an entirely new way.

 

Together we will take in the beauty and serenity of Spikenard Honeybee Sanctuary with both guided and self-directed experiences and activities. The honeybees are deeply connected to the natural and hold a wealth of wisdom to share with us if we are willing to slow down and listen. This weekend will be all about slowing down and paying closer attention.  

 

The weekend will include mindful movement, gentle yoga, restorative activities, walks in nature, playful art, music, bonfire, and so many opportunities for connecting and reconnecting.

 

The Dancin’ Dakinis are always planning the next yogic & music adventure that allows us to share our beautiful hometown of Floyd, VA. Sign up for our newsletter to receive notice of upcoming classes, immersions, music and more!
