Lyndsie's goals for her students are to enjoy practicing yoga, get in and out of postures safely, feel awesome, become healthier and happier in their lives on and off the mat, and ultimately spread kindness to others.
Shayla is a fitness and weightloss coach who fell head over heels in love with yoga while practicing at BYB. She began her practice to rehabilitate a hurt ankle (from over exercising) and discovered a deep appreciation for vinyasa. Combining the physical and spiritual practice changed the way she started to view her body, exercise, and emotional well being. The biggest gift was the stress reduction that yoga offers, which was LIFE CHANGING. She completed the Vinyasa teacher training at BYB in March with the intention of deepening her own practice, and eventually felt called to step into a teaching role. She loves to create an all inclusive atmosphere where all people feel welcomed, challenged, and successful during her classes. The aim is to empower each person to have fun and explore their own personal physical possibilities. She recognizes that the practice of yoga happens on and off of the mat. Her intention is to build community, inspire others to believe in themselves, and share the yoga love.
If you aren't in a class taught by Shelly you might be next to her in class. As much as she loves teaching, she loves taking class and being a part of the BYB community. She loves to empower others and find daily mantras to live by. Every class with Michelle is authentic, unique and challenging and will leave you feeling lighter, stronger and better connected to your mind and body. If you are interested in a new challenge or yoga pose, let Shell know. She loves to learn, grow and challenge you with a new playlist every time!
If she's not on her mat, you'll find Michelle hanging with her firefighter twin sis, brothers or hunky lions fan husband, planning her next camping/ hiking adventure, or eating awesome food or serving at Palace Kitchen.
Emily, barre teacher
Calling, All beings experience childlike joy and innocence
Emily has spent a lifetime studying music and dance, practicing yoga, traveling the world, and embracing mother nature’s beauty in all her manifestations. She has always strived to live a free spirited life of adventure and play. From a young age, Emily was inspired by her mother’s vision to be a creative force from which others could gain confidence to actively change the direction of their lives. She followed in her mother’s footsteps and began teaching yoga in 2010. After years of incorporating the fluidity of dance, the synchronization of music, and as much strength training and stamina building as possible into her yoga practice, she met her first barre class. It was everything she ever wanted! Immediately she fell in love and knew that was the direction she wanted to grow as a teacher! You can expect her classes to be fun, playful, super challenging and driven by a motivating and invigorating playlist! Her favorite place is anywhere people are gathered to sweat, breathe and break boundaries together, or enjoy delicious food, laughs, and amazing wine!
