Lyn Thomas, Dip.IYTA, AUS, Cert.YTT Ananda Yoga, USA, founder and director of Sunshine Yoga & Health.
Born in New Zealand, growing up on a dairy farm in a small village called Pirongia and spending much time in the beautiful NZ bush, was the start of Lyn's love for nature and adventure. She began her journey into yoga at age 8 years, this being a foresight of her mother, who also became a yoga teacher. In 1979 Lyn, her husband and 3 small children moved to Australia. She began teaching small local classes. In 1996 Sunshine Yoga & Health was born and continues to this day.
Lyn is based in Brisbane Australia. Her love of yoga and health and a life time of involvement has led to her producing four instructional yoga DVD’s, CD’s, along with organising and facilitating yoga workshops, retreats and overseas holidays, plus her weekly yoga classes. Her expertise and passion makes her a valued teacher and is one the most experienced yoga holiday specialist in Australia.
Sunshine Yoga is a style in its own right and can be likened mostly to Hatha yoga. It has an influence of many styles which Lyn has experienced over the past few decades. She rests with a slow and gentle approach, with a strong focus on breath awareness. Her style enhances release of tightness, creating flexibility, strength and incredible mind/body connection. Her authentic style blends breath with body/mind connection. She is very much a part of the 'slow yoga revolution' which is emerging all around the world.
