Meet Linda

Linda Baffa is a singer, a mama, a foodie, a free spirit, and a truth seeker.  She teaches a strong, alignment-based, breath-filled vinyasa flow yoga style that seeks to find balance, peace, clarity, and contentment. Linda’s classes aren’t just going to strengthen your body and soften your mind, but they are also going to make you think about your life, what changes you want to see, and how you can be the best version of yourself.

Along with public group classes, Linda enjoys working privately with students, helping to individually refine their postural alignment and release any mental or physical discomfort. You’ll find her participating in yearly workshops, teacher trainings, and retreats. Aside from yoga, Linda is an accomplished singer-songwriter and enjoys connecting the beauty of music with the beauty of yoga, often chanting lullabies and inspiring ditties in savasana.
