Lindsay Hilscher is an authorized level II Ashtanga Yoga teacher. She teaches at Eddie Stern’s Brooklyn Yoga Club and Yoga Vida. Lindsay also works privately with many students, some of who are working through injuries and health issues.
A devout student of Ashtanga Yoga, she bases her teaching on steady progression achieved through consistent practice. The philosophy behind her teaching is that with a regular practice, over a long period of time the body will become strong and open. As this happens the mind is also trained to become steady and calm.
Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Lindsay moved to New York to study classical ballet and modern dance. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance from SUNY Purchase College in 2007, at which point she also began exploring yoga. She became a vinyasa yoga teacher in 2011. In 2012 Lindsay started a daily Ashtanga Yoga practice under the guidance of Eddie Stern at Ashtanga Yoga New York, where she still practices daily. In 2015 Lindsay took her first trip to Mysore, India to study under Sharath Jois at the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. She has made three 2-month trips to Mysore to study the Ashtanga Yoga Method with Sharathji. In 2017 Lindsay was granted authorization to teach. In addition to continuing to practice under Eddie Stern, Lindsay plans to make regular trips to Mysore to continue her studies with Sharathji.
