Join us for the Mini-Yin Retreat for Lovers

Our Teachers

Each Yoga Sol instructor brings her or his unique experience and perspective to class. We invite you to take a few classes and find the teachers that speak to you. We encourage students to explore our community and discover how yoga can provide different tools to help with life’s challenges. We’ve experienced yoga as a system that can support us in having a more balanced life and a more healthy body and mind. We are here to support you on your journey in health and happiness.

Liz welcomes and encourages beginning students through one one classes and public yin yoga. She inspires experienced students to explore the roots of Yoga and keep the practices alive through Yoga Teacher Training, continuing education workshops, mentorship, and intermediate public classes.

Megan Hall

Megan has been teaching yoga for more than 20 years, introducing Columbia Missouri to the yin yoga practice in 2012. Megan’s approach to yoga is slow, gentle, and adaptable to any level of experience or ability. The intention of Megan’s yin classes is to help you cultivate a more mindful presence through the yin approach to asana practice. During a yin practice, Megan will guide you in slowing down and turning inward through a series of floor poses and periods of rebound.
Yin yoga can be a bridge to meditation, or it can be the meditation itself. Yin yoga allows you to practice meditation in bite sized pieces, using sensation and breath as your focal points. Bring your inner practices and meet yourSelf where you are. Yin yoga with Megan meets Mondays at 5:30pm. Private instruction also available.

Sady Strand

Sady has taught yoga since 2014 and has long been an admirer of nature, philosophy, world literature/poetry, and social justice. Her yoga classes often reflect this passion as well as her aspiration to build inclusive classes that honor yoga’s heritage and welcome practitioners to explore a mindfulness practice.

Her gentle yoga classes typically begin with a centering practice and breathwork. From there, classes ease into gentle poses with options for modifications, and as her classes wind down, students often have the opportunity to explore restorative poses before a restful savasana.

When she is not in the studio, folks will find her directing the Margaret Campbell Student Success Center at Stephens College, reading a vast array of literature, and writing creatively as well as exploring the world beyond her fence and attempting to capture that world with a camera lens. Sady aspires to a life built on humor, curiosity, and a whole lotta kindness.

Lynn Rossy

Lynn has been teaching yoga and mindfulness for close to 25 years. Her teaching combines the heart-centered aspects of Kripalu Yoga and the wisdom and clarity of mindfulness. More than teaching poses on a mat, Lynn guides students into a deeper experience and understanding of the eight-limbed path of yoga. Her emphasis is on how to turn this physical practice into a spiritual transformation that overflows from the yoga mat into daily life. She is a trained Kripalu Yoga Teacher working on her 500-hour certification and an Advanced Energy Medicine Yoga® (EMYoga) Teacher.

Lynn is particularly adept at teaching yoga and meditation to all levels of students. Her favorite mottos are: “If you can breathe, you can do yoga” and “Yoga should feel delicious.” Her classes are filled with both laughter and deep introspection.

Karen Hodges

Karen, who has a background in dance and is a life long athlete, is grateful for the softness and healing she found in her own heart through the practice of yoga, it’s guiding principles and meditation.
She has been trained in Vinyasa, Universal Principles of Alignment, Kripalu style and Trauma Informed yoga.
Karen has also trained and practiced for many years in the Theravada tradition of meditation.
From this she has settled in over the years to a gentle and compassionate yoga practice of slowing down and finding space for awareness.
She believes the practice of yoga is about connecting the powerful forces of mind, body and heart through asana, attention to the breath and the practice of coming back to right here right now with some curiosity and wonder.
She loves nature, running and hiking which for her relates back to the yogic practice, that if we learn presence in the now, we will better understand how to respond and problem solve in our daily lives as we move out into the world.
Her goal is to create a place of friendliness and acceptance for all, that allows each person to trust that they can meet themselves where they are in this gentle Hatha yoga practice.

Linda Lutz

I began yoga in graduate school when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I was told to reduce stress, change my diet, & exercise. Yoga became an important part of my life; that was in 1982. I began teaching in 1983. I have been teaching ever since.

I started studying the art & science of Iyengar yoga in 1986. I have been dedicated to the tradition since that time. I am able to adapt poses for a variety of physical & emotional situations. One of my gifts is the ability to “see” and adjust imbalances on multiple levels. One of my focal points in teaching with props is the prop is a teacher, not a crutch. The props help teach the final pose which affects all levels of our being. I am blessed to be a teacher at Yoga Sol.
