All LKPY Leaders have either trained or studied with Lyn.
They represent and embody the core values and philosophy of LKPY.
For years Amanda had a strong inner calling to share her passion for health and wellness, but each approach she experienced didn’t completely encompass all that she felt she had to offer to the world. Yoga found her as she was training for a marathon in the hopes that it would help to keep her body fluid and strong. While lying in savasana after experiencing her first vinyasa yoga class, she felt an overwhelming sense of joy and surrender wash over her. It was a feeling of “coming home.” She finally found what she had been looking for and from that moment on she knew that yoga was her foundation for everything. Since then, her passion has been to help others tap into their inner power through the strong moving meditation of Power Yoga, with the focus on breath, soft alignment, and intention. Amanda believes passion is contagious and welcomes all levels of students to the mat who are looking to step deeper into their own power and live their authentic truth.
Amanda teaches an energetic Power Yoga class with an emphasis on breath and flow. She completed her Power Yoga Teacher Training from Lyn Gerfin Kehoe in the spring of 2016. Including Lyn, she has also been influenced by Baron Baptiste and Bryan Kest. Her heated Power Yoga classes focus on movement, breath, balance, and intention – inspiring and challenging students to tap into their authentic self on and off the mat.
When not in the studio, or practicing on her mat, Amanda loves to spend time outdoors exploring new trails with her husband and fur-child, Diesel.
Carin first discovered yoga in college when a doctor suggested she try it to reduce stress. She did that…and a whole lot more.
For more than half her life, Carin has practiced a variety of yoga styles – Iyengar, Vinyasa, Kripalu, Power – with numerous teachers, including Mary Dunn, Dean Lerner, Julie Lawrence, and Bryan Kest. Carin did her 200-hour teacher training under the guidance of Jeff Migdow in the late 1990s, and she has attended many other teacher training programs, including at Feathered Pipe Ranch, Kripalu, Omega, and in Bali. Carin also completed pre-natal and kids’ yoga training workshops and a power yoga mentoring program under the guidance of Lyn Kehoe.
Together with her husband, Aaron, Carin leads a meditation group at LKPY under the guidance of Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche Ph.D. She is also part of the Well-Being Team at her corporate job where she has the privilege of helping to bring mindfulness, meditation, and yoga to the work setting.
Carin is thrilled to take a break from her corporate job and come to the mat to help others find stress relief…and a whole lot more!
Claire Walker Moffatt
Claire is working to complete her 200 hour Power Vinyasa yoga certification through Lyn Kehoe Power Yoga. Claire has been practicing yoga since the late 1990s beginning with Iyengar, she also explored Hatha and Vinyasa before finding Power. Claire has been inspired by all of her teachers but has found a deep appreciation for Lyn Kehoe’s authentic style that challenges you to apply your yoga off your mat with your eyes wide open. Claire brings this kind of compassion and commitment to her yoga classes, creating a supportive community for her students that puts the breath at the center of the practice while still challenging the mind and body.
Claire is a mom of two and a former suit wearing executive. She’s also a certified holistic health coach focusing on bio-individuality as the basic guide to help her clients find their unique path toward health. The power in Power Yoga teaches us how to apply the yoga on and off our mats, and bio-individuality similarly serves her clients – teaching them to find their authentic self already inside to foster the healthiest version of themselves that they can be. She received her training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. She studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. Her teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. David Katz, Dr. Walter Willett, Geneen Roth, and others.
She has a BA in Anthropology and an MA in Public Administration. Both degrees provide her perspectives on how an individual’s background and history shape their relationship with health and wellness. She has a deep understanding and appreciation for the policies behind the health and wellness industries.
After finding her perfect fit in Power Yoga and yearning to learn more, she sought out Lyn Kehoe to begin her teacher training in 2011. She loves sharing her yoga. Her practice ebbing, flowing and evolving as she does. Most recently, under Lyn’s mentorship, Kea’ra decided to dive deeper into yoga anatomy to compliment both her teaching and her own practice.
She equally enjoys being a student and a teacher on the mat.
