About

Latika (Linda Nelson) is a certified TriYoga® teacher and is registered (RYT-200) with Yoga Alliance.

She teaches with a gentle and calming approach in small-group settings, allowing for personal attention and accommodation of individual needs.

Latika started practicing yoga in 1983 and upon realizing how totally relaxed and joyful she always felt after sessions, she knew yoga would always be part of her life.

In 2002 Latika began studying TriYoga with founder Yogini Kaliji and her senior teachers.

“I continue yoga study and practice because the deeper I go, the better I feel. I love sharing these yoga benefits with others through the joyful TriYoga method and community.” [To learn more about TriYoga and Kaliji see triyoga.com]

More about me: The best way to tell you who I am is to tell you what brings me joy…Taking care of my little granddaughter ~ trying to watch the world through her eyes and help her in her desire to discover and learn. Being outdoors ~ the more natural the better. I love to camp, hike, and observe what Nature presents to me. I love gardening ~ we have an annual Garden Party at my home. Teaching ~ I tutor English to foreign business people and to middle school students. Connecting with people ~ I generally have foreign students living in my home, one or two at a time. I like hearing their perspective on things. Dinner time is conversation time. I love being creative ~ writing, photography, pottery, Japanese Tea Ceremony.
