So what are you waiting for? Let’s get moving!!”


Linda Dalke

unnamedYoga Instructor

Education:

Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska ; 200 hour RYT at Sola School of Contemplative Arts in Portland, Oregon.

About Linda…

Linda moved to the Willamette Valley in 1987 to begin her teaching career. Her work with children has taken many forms—from full time in the classroom to private piano and reading instruction to summer literacy programs. An artist at heart, Linda has enjoyed being commissioned to write commemorative songs for various non-profit entities. Aside from yoga, her free time is filled with music, reading, writing poetry, gardening, and hiking. And since life is lived well through purposeful integration, these experiences find their way into the yoga studio through story and practice.

Favorite Quote:“Dare to declare who you are. It is not far from the shores of silence to the boundaries of speech. The path is not long, but the way is deep. You must not only walk there, you must be prepared to leap.” ~ Hildegard of Bingen
