Linda Cassidy first discovered yoga in 1973 when she found an early copy of Iyengar’s Light On Yoga at the public library. She renewed the book so many times that the librarian eventually gave it to her. At a later point, she studied Dzogchen Buddhism under Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and received direct transmission from him twice. She rediscovered Yoga in 2002 and has been a dedicated student and practitioner ever since. She’s been studying with Colleen and Rodney intensively since 2013 and that experience has completely transformed her practice and her life. Lately, the philosophical texts and inquiries of yoga are interesting her deeply, including but not limited to the Bhagavad Gita.
Off the mat, she is an artist who’s currently working in video, animation and photography. She’s been conducting a sustained visual inquiry into the subtleties of the Sushumna Nadi, which you can find at her website, lindacassidy.net.
Linda brings to her classes a creative sensibility developed throughout many years of studying and producing art, along with an attention to the subtle aspects of yoga asana.
