Meet Lk, Founder of the Austin Yoga Hub
Lk, a yoga teacher and founder of the Austin Yoga Hub, has been a personal student of yoga for more than 18 years. She began the study of Ashtanga yoga and soon found Hatha Flow, Vinyasa and Yin styles of yoga to be extremely beneficial in providing for a well-rounded practice. Yoga has transformed her outlook on life and provided her with a deep sense of calmness and well-being.
Along her journey, she felt a calling to share the practice with others, so in 2010, Lk completed a 200-hour Hatha teacher training program. The training focused heavily on safety and anatomy, providing a strong foundation for developing sequences suitable to many fitness levels and ages. She considers herself a life-long student of yoga and continues to pursue advanced training towards the 500-hour level certification, studying yoga philosophy with Chase Bossart, yoga asana with Donna Farhi, yoga anatomy with Leslie Kaminoff, Viniyoga Therapy with Gary Kraftsow and advanced asana with Mark Whitwell. She also completed a 50 hour Yoga for Anxiety and PTSD Training through Sundara Yoga Thereapy.
Lk has taught more than 1,000 yoga classes, privates and workshops combined. As a teacher, she strives to provide a space of compassion and self-acceptance for her students. She encourages students to tune into their individual bodies and find space and openness through thoughtfully sequenced postures, breathing techniques and meditation. She provides subtle cues and assists students in reaching their highest potential on and off the mat.
Lk received a B.A. in Communications from St. Edwards University in Austin, and previously worked as communications director for the Association of Texas Professional Educators from 2005-2011, a nonprofit education organization, where she was responsible for managing a publications, online newsletters, social media and writing and creative development for all promotional materials for membership recruitment and events. She currently does freelance social media promotion and public relations for various yoga events in Austin.
In addition to writing for and operating "the hub", Lk teaches private yoga sessions, corporate classes and teaches at several Austin yoga studios. To learn more about Lk and where she teaches, visit www.lkbookmanyoga.com.
