Lany became a devoted practitioner of Ashtanga Yoga following the birth of her second child, Balthazar. She recognized that the strength and flexibility of the mind, could be influenced by the state of the body. Inspired by her teacher of Tibetan Meditation, Lama Dawa Tarchin, she began merging her yoga practice and teaching with the spacious compliment of meditation.

 

Lany’s classes have a quest for freedom and fun, while concentrating on the fluidity of movement with the breath. She believes the discovery of ones own potential for creative energy, strength, and wisdom, can be found through the practice of yoga. Lany has completed Michael Hamilton’s Ashtanga Teacher Intensive and her 200hr Yoga Alliance Teacher Certification. She has attended workshops with several noted teachers including Tim Miller, Kino MacGregor, and Michael Gannon. She is especially grateful for the insight and teachings of Tibetan Lama Dawa Tarchin, Michael Hamilton, Eddie Stern, and Shri Sharath Jois during his tour of the US and the Shri K. Pattahbi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.

 

Lany enjoys gardening and is a continuing student in the study of Ayurvedic medicine and nutrition. She is a native to Richmond, Virginia, and shares her life with her three spirited children, Kyria, Balthazar, and Evangelia.
