My Yoga Teaching Style

I've been teaching yoga for 16 years, and I can honestly say it's where I find my bliss:  leading others home to their own bliss, to the moment, to their bodies and breath, and to themselves.  

My certifications are in Bikram and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, yet my own practice and teaching style has moved from these more yang yoga styles, to yoga that is intuitive, integrative and deeply nourishing.  

  • My yoga classes and retreats combine Yin and Restorative with very gentle exploratory Flow. 
  • I weave into our asana practice working with the breath and the energy body, as well as sacred gestures and sounds. 
  • I tap into the sacred gifts of the feminine divine.  I nourish.  I soothe.  I empower. 
  • I offer beauty and soul food in many forms:  Poetry.  Inspirational readings.  Sacred music.  Aromatherapy.  Gentle adjustments, massage and energy work. 
  • I also weave into our yoga other embodiment practices such as guided visualization, energy work and somatic meditation that deepen the yoga experience on and off the mat. 

For my students, yoga becomes more than a sanctuary and healing space, it becomes a practice ground for life.  (See Reviews Below)

What I most love about teaching yoga is that it’s a chance to lead others in their own homecoming.  This is my deepest heart felt wish:  that we all return to our true essence, to that perfect-as-is center,  and remember who we really are.

My Yoga Offerings

I’m not currently teaching public classes, but in 2018 I’ll be returning from my Sabbatical to once again lead what I most passionately love:  Yoga Bliss Circles for Women, and Yoga, Meditation and Nature Medicine Retreats.

What Others Are Saying...

It was both profound and gentle…

I'm writing to thank you for the retreat, Awakening Shakti. I wasn't sure what to expect but felt drawn to your course because of your energy. It was both profound and gentle. Everyone came at different points, different ideas and you accommodated everyone seamlessly. I love that you encouraged everyone to go at their own pace, to take what they needed. Each mediation, each activity, every word and image built this safe sort of cocoon for my own exploration of my own desires and my own journey. Your obvious knowledge of this process made it seem natural and effortless but I know it went so well because of your expertise, hard work and ability to guide the circle. This is no small feat. I've done 2 different online courses in the past few years and none were as awesome as this one. I just didn't get to the same place. But in yours I discovered so much about myself. I actually felt a part of the circle (instead of looking from the outside). I felt the support of you and of the circle of wonderful women and I also felt comfortable to explore my own soul work privately. You allowed things to unfold naturally and gave guidance at just the right times. It was the perfect balance. I've been opened. Thank you, very deep gratitude to you. I look forward to the next!

“With the loving support and guidance of Toi Lynn, I was able to begin my healing journey…”

The Bliss workshop came at a time in my life when I was experiencing a personal loss that was consuming me.  With the loving support and guidance of Toi Lynn, I was able to begin my healing journey and feel the pain in my body begin to melt away.  I am grateful for every moment of yoga practice and the Bliss workshop was a reminder that the road to healing of the mind, body, and spirit is through patience and allowing myself to be.  Shanti (Peace)

The healing begins here.

The healing begins here, and it feels soooo good! Finally. Part of my undoing, and relearning requires a loving, smiling, playful goddess who understands my innermost feminine self, because she too is me. A goddess guru who not only guides but is guided by the Sacred Divine of Feminine Connection! Toi Lynn Wyle is unlike any woman with whom I have blended paths. Not only does she have a beautiful relationship with the earth, but the sky as well! With the day and the night. And the gifts she shares, and the way we grow all together ~ like old vines ~ as she waters us, feeds us, encourages us to keep reaching down deep and up high, is one of the most divine bits of the universe I have ever witnessed. Have I grown up? Yes. Have I grown down? Oh indeed! Still, I have only begun to learn I am complete. Toi Lynn has introduced me to my spirit guides (who knew I had one, much less, many!?) She has played, giggled, cried, listened, she has spoken and taken me on journeys I will never forget. My heart just keeps unfolding, it's endless. Nurtured by the winter retreat, I feel not only a deeper connection to my intuition and place on Mother Earth, but a strong bond between other women. The circle reaches far. It is safe. It's is beautifully nurturing. It is necessary. I am ever grateful to Toi Lynn.

“The retreat was incredible.”

This retreat was incredible and I so enjoyed Toi Lynn. She is facile and deep, but light and fun too. The group of women was loving and powerful, I am so blessed to have been a part of it. I will be doing more with Toi Lynn in the future. I also bought her spray"sacred" and am using it like mad. I really like it 🙂

“I was empowered by the commonality I discovered among all of us.”

As a woman/mother, there is always the hesitation to take a whole day off... and frankly, I don't know why we do that to ourselves! There is something magical in joining 20 women in the middle of their life, not always knowing who they are or what they go through, and offering each other the best we can. Ever been to a place where you don't have to explain, you just feel and "be" with other women? Laugh or feel sad? I truly enjoyed being in silence for 30 min while surrounded with others breathing and reflecting on their being. Respecting each other's space. And then I was empowered by the commonality I discovered among all of us. Why is it we all strive so hard to belong? Why is it that our fear of not being accepted undermines our dreams, our voice and our ambition? All I know now is that next time I feel that insecurity deep inside, I will also remember that 20 other women that weekend wanted to change that unpleasant feeling. I am not alone. Neither are you, if you are willing to share.

“She’s a pioneer.”

So here's the deal about Toi Lynn. She's a pioneer. She's been 10 steps ahead of us the whole way, from opening her yoga studio, to shifting gracefully from psychological counseling into Life coaching, to taking off on a cross-country pilgrimage with her hubby in a tiny trailer. She has spoken a language that many of us haven't understood regarding deities, callings, Spiritual and bodily experiences. She holds an expansive view of Life, leaving no stone unturned. But now is the time for you to connect with Toi Lynn, my friends, because there is a tipping of humanity toward the Light and clearly She has been sent here to lead us.  Having said all of that, she's also just a southern girl who loves her gal pals and can relate effortlessly with anyone and everyone in everyday speak. So reach out to her. Let her respond to you and your inquiries. You'll see. It will be very easy. And you will be renewed.

“A truly masterful yoga teacher.”

Toi Lynn is a truly masterful yoga teacher. It’s been my extreme good fortune to have begun my yoga practice under her guidance, and attending her yin and flow classes are the highlights of each week. Her teaching is transformational on so many levels. She encourages her students to cultivate curiosity, depth, joy, and honesty on the mat; all of which flow naturally into all aspects of my life. I also appreciate the fact that Toi Lynn has a solid understanding of yoga anatomy and teaches wisely and safely; always encouraging us to stay present in our bodies, in each asana, and move in and out of each with focus and intention. Because of Toi Lynn’s love of yoga and commitment to her students, I know what it means to be part of a sangha, a community.  A recent example happened just after the new year, when there were many new students in yin class. There was a lot of talking, restlessness, students coming in at the last minute, and I started to tense up. But then, I remembered it was a safe place, a precious time, another opportunity to be on my mat, in my body, in the community. Toi Lynn acknowledged the agitation in the room and calmly set about to ground us. As if by magic, the class came together, and when it came time for our opening "Om", it resonated with incredible unity and beauty. I loved hearing her blissful sigh when the last notes faded into...

Every class is a gift, ending with gratitude (and often a poem as a beautiful send off).  Thank you, Toi Lynn!

“I truly trust in her healing offerings.”

I have known Toi Lynn since 2003 when I started my yoga journey at her yoga studio in Walnut Creek. This healing and loving place taught me to have a compassionate and deeply loving experience in my body. In her Yoga classes she started me on my journey towards also becoming a healer. I learned that my body was a pathway to wisdom and aliveness when it used to be a battleground of self criticism and shame. My husband and I were able to enjoy a silent retreat in 2011 with her as well. Through the silent retreat Brad and I both learned to listen more deeply to our selves and the world around us. I feel eternally grateful and honored to have known Toi Lynn. She speaks with compassion, honestly, and with deep respect for herself and others. I truly trust in her healing offerings.
