Linda Dilmore began her journey in yoga in 2009. It did not take long for her to realize that yoga was more than just a physical practice of stretching and strengthening the muscles; it also placed emphasis on calming and centering the mind. In 2017, she completed the 200-hour teacher training with Yogini Kali Om Gabrielle of the Sri Dharma Mitra lineage at Haven on the Lake and began teaching that same year.
Her passion for learning yoga continued with the 100-meditation training at Haven on the Lake, followed by completion of the 500-hour yoga teacher training, which included Reiki, Thai Bodywork and Yoga Nidra. Linda enjoys teaching a class that includes breathwork, movement and meditation, where students are encouraged to let go of the outside world and connect to the space within their own hearts.
What class/classes do you teach at Haven?
What is your favorite form of mind body movement or lesson you teach, and why?
My favorite class to teach is a Slow Flow Vinyasa that allows each person to explore their own personal dimension of movement with proper alignment.
What is your favorite song or type of music you listen to when teaching?
My music choices are based on instrumentals that include flute, piano, cello, and drums along with the sounds of nature.
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by being able to share the yoga practice with others, so they can try to experience the harmony of physical and mental balance both on and off the mat.
What is a quote or mantra you live by?
“The heart is where our imagination resides, where our giftedness lies and holds the childlike innocence and wonder. Living from the heart means our mind is accepting and expanding to the energy and wisdom of the heart.” -David Schroeder
What is your haven?
Off the mat, I enjoy being outdoors, traveling, sailing, snow skiing, playing Pickleball, and spending time with family and friends. I believe Haven is the space in your heart that holds your own personal peace and can be carried with you everywhere you go.
