Lynn is the Director of Teacher Training, Studio Owner, and has been practicing for 20 years. She has owned Yoga Story for 4 years and has been part of the studio as either a teacher, manager or owner for 7 years. She was previously the assistant to the CEO of Sam's Club and the Sr. Liaison for the Walmart Board of Directors but left the corporate world after 10 years to be an entrepreneur and find more personal fulfillment working one on one with others in their health and wellness goals. Lynn loves sports and enjoys how yoga makes her a stronger athlete. She has completed marathons, half marathons, triathlons and tough mudders. Lynn is also a personal trainer and has studied with some amazing anatomy teachers such as Ray Long, Jamie Elmer, Leslie Howard (Pelvic Floor Yoga Teacher TM), Doug Keller, Tiffany Cruikshank & Tias Little. She has led three 200 hour yoga alliance certified yoga teacher trainings and helped to facilitate many others. Her classes are educational and encourage you to do just as much inner work as you do outer work.
Outside of yoga, she is the mother to two boys. She loves to lift weights, run, bike and swim, listen to podcasts and read in her free time, although her full life keeps her very busy - she wouldn't imagine it any other way.
Julie is a 500 RYT yoga teacher and teaches hot flow, slow flow, sculpt & flow and kids/tween yoga. She has been the studio's manager for 6 years. She loves anything fitness, hiking with my dog, reading, gardening, baking, hanging out at the lake and spending time with her husband and adult children. In her adult classes, students will experience a powerful vinyasa flow with fun and playful sequences designed to strengthen the body and mind. You will sweat and she will challenge you to see what's possible. In her kids and tween classes, she likes to have fun with themes while introducing yogic concepts at an age appropriate level.
Our teacher training is a power style vinyasa training rooted in the Baptiste methodology and leadership style. We utilize the book by Baron Baptiste, Journey Into Power & the concept of creating an extraordinary classroom experience in our teaching methodology curriculum. Our trainees start practice teaching from Day 1.
Discover your presence and connection to teaching through the workings of the physical body. Our program utilizes the book The Key Muscles of Yoga by Ray Long, MD & the DVD Anatomy for Yoga by Paul Grilley to facilitate discussion & dive into the different yoga poses, how they work in the body and safe ways to modify for different populations. Our training covers athletes, beginners, information on kids yoga and prenatal yoga.
We dive into yoga philosophy and history through the study of the yoga sutras, the yamas & niyamas, & the Hatha Yoga Family Tree. Special guest speaker Wesley Pilcher guides trainees through the basic concepts of ayurveda, discovering your dosha and practical ways to stay balanced. Studio owner Lynn Hancock will cover ethical business practices, social media presence, and in conducting yourself as a professional in a position of yoga teacher.
