About Lynda

I began my teaching career substituting for June Lee McCarthy, my first teacher.  June introduced me to yoga and I was hooked.  Fast forward to 2019 and after full- replacement knee surgery I discovered “adaptive” yoga.  I also teach aqua yoga in a therapeutic pool in Westland.

2:30 pm – 3:45pm | Exploring the Yin Yoga Style  
Charlene Vukonich

Yin yoga targets the connective tissue of the joints as opposed to the muscles in other styles of yoga. Introducing longer holds to allow for a deeper dive into your ligament’s and joints. Yin yoga can help you gain greater flexibility and self-awareness by helping you find the stillness within your poses. Bring 2-3 blocks, blanket and a yoga mat.
