DESIGN My work began in fashion and textile design in NYC. Later I studied graphics andgrew to become a creative director focused on fashion retail brands and co-founder of the design and marketing agency rock and rain. This diverse design experience is grounded in a deep sense of curiosity, a desire to create beauty and a passion for ideas. YOGA The first 5 years of yoga were spent sweating it out at a Bikram studio- which left me wanting to know more. My search for depth led me to the 250 hour teacher training at Piedmont Yoga, founded by Richard Rosen and Rodney Yee. I continued my studies with an additional 100 hour teacher training with Katchie Ananda. As is a long time student of Jack Kornfield Katchie’s program offered a unique blend of alignment, mindfulness and dharma. NOW Practice the pleasure of the process and bring full attention to life- every day. Make with our hands. Quiet repetitive thoughts. Sweep the floor. Explore an asana. In every action we can nurture peace, well being and love. www.lynnursic.com
