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.

“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.

“She is as good as it gets.”

If you want an amazing breath work practitioner and therapist, Toi Lynn is who you want to schedule with. I have been seeing her for 5 years and her support has helped me to grow and expand into a completely different person. Her warmth, integrity, and kindness, has exceeded all of my expectations for what a therapist can be. She brings so much herself to her work in a positive way. I also learned how to do yoga from Toi Lynn with loving kindness and compassion towards myself. World Yoga, the studio she founded in Walnut Creek, changed my attitude towards the way yoga is meant to be practiced.  I attended a yoga retreat of hers as well and left feeling loved within myself, as well as fed from the inside out. Do yourself a favor, schedule an appointment with her. Whether its yoga, breath work, therapy, coaching, or some combination of these   She is as good as it gets.

“I was struck by her loving presence and warm smile.”

When I first met Toi Lynn, I was struck by her loving presence and warm smile. She knows intuitively how to correct my poses and does it gently. She encourages her students to be in tune with their bodies and to practice ahimsa, doing “no harm” to themselves. Toi Lynn often ends her classes with inspirational readings from Hafiz, Mary Oliver, or Kafka; inevitably I feel more relaxed and content.

“She is a gift and a blessing to us all.”

While attending Toi Lynn's restorative yoga class, one is transformed into a state of calm and acceptance. Her presence in the room is that of pure, unconditional love for each and every one of her students. She cares about how you are receiving the poses - and also encourages one to express when there is any type of discomfort that he/she is experiencing. Her emphasis is that of moving the body in a nurturing manner, being sure to remind us of the importance of breath. The beginning of the class is started with a setting of intention which is shared by an Om......And the class ends with a recital of a poem which has inspired Toi Lynn for that day. She is a gift and a blessing to us all.

Toi Lynn is our guiding mother in sound and in motion. She leads us on a multigenerational, cross cultural  and all inclusive journey to learning who we are. At her first whisper, her voice puts you at ease......the trust comes and the powerful lessons flow. It's opening to the possibility......the chance that in this life I will arrive to the place where happily I say hello to marvelous me.

“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)
