Linda lived on Lake Como, Italy for 16 years and returned to Scotland with her family for work opportunities. Initially, she taught Italian and now teaches yoga 121, yoga classes, workshops, retreats.
She qualified in 2006 in classical Hatha yoga (500hours) and furthered her studies in vinyasa flow yoga, yin yoga, and pre and postnatal, restorative yoga, yoga for healthy lower backs. She continued to practice yoga and later diversified her studies by learning Thai yoga massage.
