"If it's about helping kids thrive in school and life, I can help!"-Lindsey Lieneck, MS, OTR, RYT
Lindsey has been a yoga practitioner and used yoga and mindfulness to support her life fully since 2000. She received her 200 hour Hatha yoga teacher certification from Yoga Yoga in Austin, TX in 2008, and her 100 hour Aerial Yoga Teacher certification from The Yoga Studio in Campbell, CA in 2012. She has also received Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Certification and certification as a yoga therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
Additionally, she is a licensed Occupational Therapist in the state of Texas and registered with the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy. Since 2003, Lindsey has gained experience as an Occupational Therapist working in a variety of rehabilitation settings with extensive training and experience in neurological rehabilitation, sensory processing and functional therapy in the community and home environment. She has also developed and created training programs for other therapists around her specialty topics of sensory processing, mindfulness, stress management and functional life changes.
Lindsey takes the synergies between occupational therapy and traditional Hatha yoga to create a fun, playful and therapeutic practice for kids. She also utilizes various aspects of partner yoga, acro-yoga and aerial yoga to bring parents and children to the mat together for an opportunity to bond, develop a playful dialogue, and break away from the modern day hustle to enjoy a mindful, fun practice.
When Lindsey is not practicing yoga or creating new educational workshops, you can find her enjoying live music, exploring Austin with friends and family, reading fiction and nonfiction or taking photographs of people she loves. Lindsey expresses infinite gratitude for her husband, who has supported her fully and wholeheartedly on this yoga journey of transforming their house into an aerial yoga jungle; and for her two daughters, who remind her daily of the importance of play and connection. They remain her primary inspiration and impetus for gathering courage and following big dreams.
