Lindsay Hutton received her 200 hr certification from the Arkansas Yoga Center. She holds a Ph.d in creative writing from Texas Tech University and currently teaches writing at Northwest Arkansas Community College. She has been practicing yoga since graduate school, when she realized that yoga offered not only a release from the stress of study and academic performance but also a larger perspective of life. She views yoga as a process of self-discovery, and one that has given her a greater appreciation for others and for the surrounding world. Teaching offers Lindsay the chance to share the peaceful awareness of a yoga practice. In each class she seeks to encourage self-reflection, acceptance, and respect. She believes that the great challenge of yoga isn’t in achieving advanced poses, but in understanding and accepting where one is in each pose. In each class she makes use of props and alternative versions of various poses as a way to foster individual growth and non-competitiveness.
