Owner, Yoga from the Heart
Lynn Burgess, founder/owner of Yoga from the Heart in Sarasota, Florida, has taught yoga since 1996. Her experience and dedication is evident in every class and with every student. Her energetic, light-spirited approach is one reason she is in high demand not only as a studio teacher, but a guest instructor, corporate presenter and national workshop leader.
Curiosity, openness, and warmth are of the utmost importance in Lynn’s approach to alignment-influenced yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and poetic imagination. Her style is effective, playful and accessible to all levels and all ages.
Lynn’s teaching is in demand with private clients as well — from young entrepreneurs to CEOs and retired baby boomers — all of whom appreciate her ability to tailor lessons to their specific physical needs as well as their personal schedules. Lynn has also spent several years developing and refining a yoga program for students with
Parkinson’s Disease, and teaches a weekly class at Parkinson Place in Sarasota,Florida.
Prior to opening Yoga from the Heart, Lynn earned her MBA and worked in corporate America. Overworked, stressed and plagued with nagging back pain, Lynn realized she wanted a different life.
A perpetual student, Lynn continues to train several times each year with her own primary teachers, Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee. Additionally, she is a devoted student of functional movement.
“I am a problem-solver at heart,” Lynn said. “What initially drew me to yoga was a curiosity about the mind-body connection which, in turn, has enabled me to help others create a movement-rich life.
