Lynette Lee
Yoga Teacher

Yoga crept into Lynette’s life at the beginning of 2002.  Her practice started when she decided to immediately enter her first teacher training program at Yoga Kingdom Sanctuary in Pasadena, CA. The graceful, fluid, physical movements of Hatha Yoga, breathing and strengthening fit like a glove.  She feels the experience brought together her previous years of intense interest in spiritual ideas and whole-living into a tangible form and Yoga continues to provide her with a real tool to use to help deal with the everyday stresses and adventures of being a mother, a wife and a human, as well as to make progress forward. She has found that invariably, yoga can lead us to more and more tools and ways to conduct our lives, and it is up to us to choose/use the methods which help us to see our true inner light. 

In the summer of 2008, Lynette pursued further study of yoga in her second training at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Massachusetts where she learned to integrate that style into her teaching from a place of true personal authenticity as well as build further confidence and focus. She is a practitioner of BioSonics© Tuning Forks, Dr. John Beaulieu, New York, a Vedic practitioner initiated through the Vedic Healing Institute, Los Angeles, and Director of Yoga for TAT/SAT Centers, USA and Europe. She has been teaching Yoga continually since 2003 to all levels of students, teens, and mothers.

Besides Hatha Yoga, she has found much comfort through singing kirtan with reknown teachers, in rituals for protecting the peace of the planet and all beings, experiencing the unconditional love of her teacher Mata Amritananadamayi, meditation, explorations in Kundalini Yoga, and  music & vibrational sound healing.

The opportunity to bring Yoga into the lives of others is a blessing for Lynette, and it is an honor for her to continue her career in the field of service to them.

 “I believe we each have our own paths to lead us on our journey, and they may or may not intersect with those closest to us. But may we find comfort in it, all together, for the benefit of every one of us!”


 SEVA SIMRAN / Susan Nishizawa
Yoga Teacher / Energy Healer        

I realize status quo equals spiritual death and the challenges in my life were opportunities for me to dance the dance of life.  Here is my story: 

I remember the moment when my soul yearned for freedom.  I was driving home from work, right after graduating from C.S.U.N. with a B.A. in Accounting in 1993.  I was close to tears, hitting the steering wheel of my car thinking, “When was I going to finally have the strength to be who I was?”  All my life I felt like I was jumping through these hoops to show everyone how great I was, but I never felt this validation from myself.  Little did I know that this was my soul yearning to be free and happy.


Looking for a healing balm, I began going to the Yoga Kingdom Sanctuary in 2001.  It cleared all the energetic cobwebs and I began a regular practice.  A few months later, I began the Teacher Training Program at the Yoga Kingdom Sanctuary and was certified in June 2002.  I began teaching a “Heart Opener” Hatha and Prenatal yoga class.  In 2003, I had reached my one year yoga anniversary and I felt that I needed to learn another healing modality.  

I ventured into Reiki Tummo, which is hands-on-healing and decided to pursue it for personal healing.  I was certified in Level I and II and 3a (Master) in 2003 and December 2003 by the Padmacahaya Foundation.  It was at these workshops that I realized my gift for energy work.  I began incorporating Reiki into my yoga classes as well as aromatherapy and music therapy.  


To further my personal spiritual growth, I was initiated by Ammachi in 2006. She then led me to the Vedic Healing Institute to become a Vedic Practitioner and learn Sanskrit Mantras with Professor Sasi Velupillai and Reiki Master Alexandra Juliani in 2006.  


My continuing adventure has led me to complete the Level I Kundalini Yoga Certification in June 2008 at The Awareness Center where I am currently teaching.
