Meet Your Teacher Lindsay Dombrowski

The newest addition to our teaching community, meet your teacher Lindsay Dombrowski.  As a former dancer and sometimes story teller, she has spent over a decade with yoga; first in New York City, later in Los Angeles, and now in the Bay.

How long have you been at Namaste?

I’m new to Namaste! I recently relocated to the bay.

What inspired you to become a yoga instructor?

The brazen confidence of youth? I was in my very early twenties in NYC and had some deeply feeling experiences with myself moving and breathing.

Which teachers have influenced your practice?

Maia Heiss and Julia Planine-Troiani. I’m also inspired by what and how Nevine Michaan, Ada Lusardi, and Annie Carpenter discover and share. Annemaria Rajala is a favorite teacher to discuss all things yoga with…

What does your yoga practice look like and how has it changed your life?

It looks daily and continual. Right now, in terms of yoga asana it looks like ashtanga. I couple this with some restorative yoga when I’m taking good care of myself. Sometimes it just looks like sitting and breathing. I think the practice is the path we take towards understanding life. Life and death, really. And beyond.

What is something you wish your students knew?

We are all light beings having a human experience.

Are you a morning person or night owl?

Since aṣṭāṅga, morning person. Before, night owl.

Being a student.

Do you have any go-to yoga and wellness books or podcasts?

What are you involved with outside the studio?

Food. Family. Friends. Nature as much as possible. I’m a New Yorker at heart, so I am reveling in my first yard – planting things, watching them grow, eating them when applicable 🙂
