The Weekley YMCA is so fortunate to have the opportunity to share the talents of Lin Weiss, one of the most patient and gifted certified yoga instructors in America. I took her Yin yoga class at 11:30 today and feel better than I have felt in months. The gentle stretch and peace of mind she facilitates will serve me through a stressful afternoon of meetings and deadlines. Lin is by far one of the most gifted, intuitive leaders in Houston's yoga community. - M. Smith, Editor
Lin’s yoga classes are available to students of all levels, challenging students to practice yoga in a way that honors their individual body while encouraging connection through breathing and thoughtful movements. By the end of class, I feel calm, restored and ‘put back together’. Lin teaches from a place of intentional purpose and healing and her desire to support each student on their own journey shines through her heart-centered approach.

Six years ago I was blessed to meet Lin & begin practicing yoga with her. I wish I had the words to describe what these years have meant to me, but so often, spiritual growth is beyond words. Without fail, I would ponder during each session…”I don’t know why I am doing this but I do know it is helping me.” During these six years Lin & yoga have journeyed with me through the devastation of Alzheimer’s disease in my husband, his death, and my new life going forward. I now practice twice a week with Lin and I am most grateful for these times of continued growth, healing, and transformation.

Thanks for your love and teachings Lin. You're the best yoga teacher!!! The gift is your ability to guide us how to release, and trust we need not carry the tension! And a million other gifts, the ones words can't describe.

Lin’s passion for Yoga is evidenced by her warm and personable teaching style. She is a long-time practitioner/instructor of classical Hatha Yoga; Pranayama breathing technique; The Chakra System; and Meditation. Listening with compassion rather than fear, allows us to understand the body’s innate wisdom & propensity for healing. Inspired by Iyengar and Kundalini practice, Lin offers the wisdom of many traditions to address each student’s goals, whether beginner or advanced.
As we train in asana, through the breath, inherent systems of health and well-being are restored. An invigorated sense of life’s purpose emerges. We remember who we are.
