Peggy Breeze

The last time I was in India, we went out on the Ganges River early one morning to watch the sunrise. The fire ascended and seared the silent blue horizon to blazing crimson, then deepest amber. A balance of elements creating a sky both glorious and humbling. I was reminded that there is balance in everything.

The balance of spiritual being and physical action. Health that emanates from the interconnectedness of body, mind, and soul. Yoga and Ayurveda.

Who knew when left the corporate world more than twenty years ago that my passion for balance would bring me to this glorious place of self-fulfillment and love for sharing through teaching? And with that, blessings I could have never anticipated.

Passion for study is one such blessing, and I have had the good fortune to study many aspects of balance including Yoga Asana, Yoga Therapy, Meditation, Ayurveda, Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition, Pilates, and Exercise Science. But more importantly, I have been able to share this knowledge through years of teaching, gaining more than 10,000-hours of hands-on experience.

Another blessing has been to travel and teach internationally and to work with the world's most revered teachers including B.K.S. Iyengar, Saraswati Jois, T.K.V. Desikachar, Dharma Mittra, and Vasant Lad to name just a few.

I’m blessed to be teaching here at Dhyana and look forward to meeting you in my classes soon. Namaste

Linda Cuyler

I found yoga at a time in my life where I was overweight and suffering from high blood pressure, arthritic joints, and lacking in self-esteem. Yoga gave me hope that I could make steady sustainable changes in my life. From there I developed a passion and desire to share this same opportunity with others. I am passionate about wellness, empowering others, embracing life fully, exploring our edges where we need to grow, and faith.

My intention is to help the student to feel empowered to access their own personal inner capacity for wellness. My style of teaching is always based from the perspective of meeting the student(s) where they are on the mat, assessing their needs, creating a safe space for them to explore their capabilities as well as their current limitations and presenting tools that they can choose from to follow their own practice.

Besides my certifications on RYT 500 and 300hr Advanced Teacher of Therapeutic Yoga, I am also a certified Trauma Informed Yoga Therapist, Licensed OAnx Clinic Facilitator, Embody Love Movement Facilitator, Reiki Master. I have specialized training in Yoga for bereavement, Yoga for stress and burnout in caregivers, Mindfulness and Meditation for those in chronic pain, Tapping Therapies for Trauma and Self-care.
