This class is taught by:

Lyndsie C

Lyndsie, Teacher,
Calling: All people are thriving, loved and full of joy.
Lyndsie's goals as a teacher are to impart joy and passion for yoga to others, for students to see yoga not just as a way to fitness, but as a way to relax the mind, de-stress, slow down and achieve greater focus. Her goal is to help others listen to their bodies and gain self-awareness, while encouraging a positive self-image, feelings of empowerment and self-care. To do this, she focuses the class on proper form and technique, prioritizing alignment and safety, and strings it all together with her unique delivery of enthusiasm, fun, and words of encouragement.

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 Lee

Shayla, teacher
Calling: All people feel worthy, complete, and are living in their light 

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.

Michelle Muzzin

Michelle, Teacher.
Calling: All beings are stronger than they think they are.
 
Michelle found yoga in college. After finding a truly enjoyable hour long workout that didn't feel like a regret she was instantly hooked. She started practicing bikram yoga and instantly loved the heat, it helped deepen her practice and helped her find strength and incredible flexibility over the years. She truly found her passion when she took the leap for her first teacher training in 2012. She then completed her Vinyasa and Yoga Sculpt certification at Core Power Yoga, and her latest training was at Be Yoga Burien for a Barre teacher training.

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.

Ashley Wainscott

Ashley, yoga and barre teacher. 
Calling: all people living lives of love and authenticity.
Ashley started her regular yoga practice after having her 3rd baby. Growing up as a dancer it was a chance to lean in to some balance and flexibility that may have still been lingering around. She stumbled upon BYB and immediately fell in love with the Bikram yoga practice for it’s challenge physically and mentally. Sooner than later she found herself coming back for more as often as she could. After working in the corporate world for 20 years, she started to find her balance and her need for self care through yoga. Ashley continued to notice that there was something special at BYB, something different, a loving, caring community, not just yoga. Once those worlds started to collide more and more, she started to question her priorities, and signed up for the Classic 26 YTT at BYB in Fall of 2017. Come to find out it was the best decision she ever made. The training transformed her, by defining her true calling in life, and eventually gave her the courage to put herself, and her family first. She left her job in the fashion industry of 20 years in February 2018, while in BYB’s Vinyasa YTT. In May Ashley added Barre training to the mix. A total of 400+ hours of teacher trainings in about 9 months. Ashley still continues to work in the fashion industry, but has been dedicated to continue to be a student and a teacher of yoga. Ashley loves and is invested in this community. She raises 3 children, a dog, and a lizard with her husband Josh in Des Moines.
