Lindel Hart, Director
email Lindel

Lindel Hart is a certified yoga instructor (Yoga Alliance E-RYT 200) working in the tradition of B.K.S. Iyengar. Through his focused sequences of poses and individualized instruction, he conveys his knowledge and experience of yoga to beginners and experienced practitioners alike. Lindel infuses his teaching with compassion, joy, enthusiasm, and humor, emphasizing anatomical integrity and a constant dialogue between mind and body. Through the practice of yoga he encourages students to explore and deepen their connection to themselves and to whatever they regard as divine.
Lindel likens yoga to a river: every person steps into the water at a unique place, joining the flow with a distinctly individual perspective. In this sense the journey has no beginning and no end, only an expanding and deepening awareness of the movement of life.
He has studied extensively with Carrie Owerko (Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York) and Marilyn Hart (Green River Yoga and Movement Arts, Greenfield, MA), and completed his teacher training with Eileen Muir (Karuna Center for Yoga and Healing Arts, Northampton, MA). He has also studied with Rodney Yee.

Lindel formerly taught in New York City and has taught classes and conducted workshops at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, the Martha's Vineyard Yoga Festival, the Nantucket Yoga Festival, Karuna Center for Yoga and Healing Arts, Green River Yoga and Movement Arts and BYS Yoga (Pittsburgh, PA). He has led several yoga retreats on Monhegan Island, Maine, and was a featured presenter at the Slow Living Summit in Brattleboro, VT. He is also the yoga teacher at Deerfield Academy, a private residential high school. Lindel is available for private instruction.

Lindel lives in Greenfield with his husband Rod and their 11-year-old son. He is also a writer and performer. His adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, in which Lindel portrayed Frankenstein's Creature, played to sold-out audiences in its initial run in July 2014. The show toured to the Edinburgh Featival Fringe in 2015 and was performed at the Academy of Music Theatre in Northampton, MA, in 2016..

And completely unrelated to yoga, Lindel and his family have appeared twice on The Real Housewives of New York City.

Lindel is available for private yoga instruction, as well as AromaTouch sessions. He has been trained in and certified to practice the AromaTouch Technique, a clinical approach to applying doTERRA essential oils along energy meridians and visceral contact points of the back and feet to help balance sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body. The AromaTouch Technique includes four primary steps designed to minimize systematic stressors to autonomic balance. Each step includes the application of two essential oils or essential oil blends specifically formulated to support healthy emotional and physiological functions for well-being. The technique uses doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils for an unparalleled grounding experience. Each AromaTouch session lasts approximately 35-40 minutes and provides deep relaxation while supporting overall wellness.
