About the Facilitator(s)

Lynne took her first yoga class while in college, at the YMCA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Her first instructor and mentor, Trudy Davis, encouraged her to teach when she moved to Alaska in 1977. She enrolled in the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco’s Teacher Training Program the summer of 1980. Encouraged by Donald Moyer, she attended her first yoga Intensive at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India in 1981. She was certified to teach yoga by BKS Iyengar in 1984. Subsequent trips to Pune followed in 1988 and 1997.

Lynne founded the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 1982 in Anchorage, Alaska and oversaw its growth and development into a thriving center with 20 plus instructors for the next 26 years. She  started the Inner Dance Teacher Training program in 1999 which trained over 100 yoga teachers in the 8 years of her oversight of the program. Lynne sold the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 2008. She now travels the country and the world teaching yoga wherever she is invited.

Lynne  draws inspiration from yoga on and off the mat, attending local classes and sharing practice with others. She honors her  teachers of the Iyengar  tradition, Judith Lasater, Donald Moyer, and  Fr. Joe Pereira. Self-Realizaion Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda's organization, to which she was first exposed in 1978 is another continuing source of upliftment.   

Yogananda says, "The true purpose of life is to realize one's Self as wisdom and bliss". Patanjali's yoga sutra book II, sutra 41 (Light on Yoga Sutras, BKS Iyengar translation) states, "When the body is cleansed, the mind purified and the senses controlled, joyful awareness needed to realize the inner Self, also comes." My mission statement is to help myself and others to awaken joyful awareness through the practices of yoga; asanas that cleanse the body, pranayama that calms the mind, concentration that controls the senses, and meditation for realizing the Inner Self.

Lynne grew up in Wisconsin. Her love of travel and degree in Environmental Geology brought her to play and work in Alaska in 1975. That year she met future husband, Jim, and together they made Alaska home. They have been married since 1978. Together they enjoy camping, flying, overseas travel and their wonderful community of family and friends. Lynne also loves to sing, hula, play her ukelele, garden, bike and hike. She is in the process of relocating to Prescott, Arizona.

About the Facilitator(s)

Anja Borgstrom
Growing up in a small, Northern California beach town, Anja frequented the cliffs overlooking the ocean to practice nature-honoring rituals. This was the early phase of what grew to be a passion for movement in dance, surfing, capoeira, and yoga.

Anja is a 1996 graduate of The Yoga Room’s Iyengar-based teacher training program in Berkeley, CA. She has taught for 21 years, cultivating a gentle, subtle, alignment and breath-based approach. Calming the nervous system lays the foundation for the practice. With compassion, patience, and knowledge, she offers valuable individualized guidance. Restorative, Gentle, children’s yoga, and yoga retreat adventures are yoga niches that she offers with gratefulness and zeal.

Over 30 successful, intimate size yoga retreats have been led by Anja since 1997. The continuous flow of a deep, daily practice , harmony with nature, and the connection of the group provides an ideal environment for yoga to unfold.
