Lynda Spieser BASc., AHC
Lynda is a practicing Ayurvedic Health Counselor, a Yoga Health Coach, an Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher, and a Yoga Therapist certified with the IAYT. Lynda graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Consumer Foods and followed with a Diploma in Business Administration from Wilfrid Laurier University.
Lynda’s 38-year career with a national food company began in Quality Assurance and Sensory Analysis, then morphed to Food Services, and evolved to the Director of Facilities Management. Towards the end of her corporate experience, Lynda was introduced to Ayurveda in her personal yoga studies. Captivated by the elements and how rhythms in nature influence her life, Lynda went on to study at Kripalu, graduating as an Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher and subsequently as an Ayurvedic Health Counselor.
As author of the CLAS Age-less-ness Series, Lynda teaches modern applications of the time-tested wisdom of Ayurveda to individuals in her clinical practice and to groups of engaged women, meeting weekly and committed to supporting each other as they lock in new, rejuvenating habits. Her clinical practice encompasses food and lifestyle self-care practices, tailored to the individual’s unique constitution and state, and in sync with the rhythms of nature, evolving them to be more in tune with their health and well-being. Feeling clear, awake, and nourished, they are energized – body, mind, soul, and senses. Lynda teaches Ayurveda: Mind/Body Healing at The Institute of Holistic Nutrition’s Mississauga Campus.
