Questions & Answers

Who am I?

I am Lindsay, an RYT 200 hr certified Yoga/Meditation teacher, a 200 hr certified Power Yoga instructor and a registered Yoga Alliance member. I've guided more than 7000 in-person classes over the last decade and during the past year, over 1000 virtual classes.

After earning a BFA in Contemporary Dance and Performance from Radford University in 2005, I went on to accumulate more than 13 years experience as a professional performing artist in the beautiful city of Philadelphia. I've since moved back to my home state of Virginia. I am currently a remote Adjunct Faculty of Drexel University's Dance Department, guiding courses in both Yoga & Modern Dance.

In addition to my work as an educator, I've chosen to channel creative energy into visual art, working diligently over the past 6 years to create abstract artworks that evoke a love of movement and connection. These works can be explored @ www.heretogetherart.com.

What is Vinyasa/Flow Yoga?

Vinyasa Yoga (sometimes referred to as Flow Yoga) can be defined as a movement practice where a person moves through poses while maintaining a steady breath. Simply put, Vinyasa translates to "Breath with Movement". This method of practicing poses is the root of both my yoga trainings and my continued personal practice.

Why Virtual?

This platform will serve as a virtual home to provide yoga to folks wherever they are. I will continue to operate this platform long after in-person sessions are once again fully available. This space will connect us near and far and will function as an inclusive safe space for anyone looking to discover or build upon their Yoga practice. I will one day expand this service by potentially adding instructors, workshops and when possible, I will travel to provide in-person classes.

Why the name "Lovely Devi"?

The name of this website is an honoring of the Hindu Goddess Devi and Devi's myriad of forms. I aim to provide inspiration to all with references to ancient stories about the power we all share to create health, beauty, joy and harmony in our lives.

"Devi is the sanskrit word for "Goddess", a cosmic force that destroys demonic forces threatening the world's equilibrium. Devi creates, annihilates and recreates the universe…"

My Intention

My experience has taught me that Yoga is an invaluable path that paves the way for peace and clarity among many other things. I don't claim perfection as an instructor nor do I claim ownership over ancient traditions and practices. I am comfortable in the knowledge that where I am is a good place to start and that my work has prepared me to be a humble guide. I have reverence for the history and philosophy of Yoga and aim to continue my studies. I plan to offer an informed reflection of what I've learned from my teachers and myself, a respectful interpretation of materials of which I claim to be no expert. I will continue spiritual study and do my best to offer inspiring stories from revered ancient texts regarding, for example, the Devi and her myriad of forms. I will do my best to always show up on my mat with hope and light.

I am here.-Lindsay
