Women's Wellness Retreat Shasta Sept 2021 Vitality Renewal Retreat Mexico Feb 2022
"Katalyna" Lindsay Keiser is an international Yoga Educator and wellness guide. She was introduced to Yoga at a very young age by her grandmother Lena. She rediscovered the healing powers of Yoga at the University Of Oregon in 2004 where she studied Hatha Yoga and meditation with Sandy Adler.
After leaving home in her teenage years and living on the streets, she battled addictions, depression and toxic relationship patterns. Her studies of Yoga, meditation and substance abuse prevention at the UO helped form her worldview, recovery journey and spiritual path.
She graduated from the University in 2009 with degrees in Spanish Literature and Cultural Anthropology (focus - Indigenous Meso-American Cultures.)
She received her RYT-200 Yoga teaching certification in 2012 with Marianne Wells, a direct understudy of B.K.S. Iyengar. Coming from this foundational lineage, she teaches alignment-based yoga with an open heart.
In 2014 she received her Street Yoga certification, to specialize in working with troubled and homeless youth, recovering addicts, trauma survivors , people with high levels of depression and anxiety, PTSD survivors and incarcerated populations.
After a long history of medical complications from childhood including gallstone diagnosis in 1993 and a complicated tumor surgery in 1999, she was dedicated to finding a way to be pain-free and healthy without using Western Medicine's surgeries and pharmaceutical approaches. In 2016, she quit drinking and made serious commitments to her physical, mental, emotional and spiritual cleanliness, and that path has led her to a healthy lifestyle free of meat, alcohol, caffeine, sugar and processed foods. She now helps others struggling with addictions to customize their recovery path and prevent relapse through Yoga, meditation and deep self-exploration.
She specializes in women's wellness, hosting women's circles and women's wellness retreats in Oregon, California and Mexico. Her goal is share her wisdom to ALL those who come across her path and learn from every interaction. She lives by the motto, "Everyone is my teacher."
She approaches wellness on a holistic level, helping her clients to transform their lives through Yoga, nutrition and various medicines and healing practices from all over the world. She believes each individual has very unique wellness needs and her passion is to help people find what works to bring them to a happier and healthier lifestyle.
Now teaching private sessions, healing workshops and leading yoga retreats internationally, she travels to Mexico each Winter to teach and study. She is dedicated to studying indigenous tribal medicine and dance.
She spends the rest of the year in her beloved life-long home of Eugene, Oregon where she is an auntie of six and a Faerie Godmother. She leads women's circles, events, classes and workshops, collaborating with other local healers. She teaches Bilingual Yoga and Breath Workshops at the University of Oregon & Yamada Language Center. She offers specialized Yoga to the homeless community and often leads free community classes as part of a mission to make Yoga available to all.
In her free time she can be found smiling, laughing, hiking, chanting, painting, sculpting, bellydancing and balancing flaming swords on her head! She goes to annual art and music festivals and loves being in the forest among magical creatures. She flies around creating magic and dances with the sacred element fire, a free Spirit and a lover of life and laughter.

"Lindsay teaches Yoga and Breath workshops at the University of Oregon's Foreign Language & International Studies (FLIS) day and they are a huge success! Lindsay is a wonderful and innovative teacher who created fun games and exercises that she could use in a large group setting for our event. Her sessions filled so quickly with eager students that we had to close the doors! She had close to 100 students in each workshop where they got to experience fun yoga inspired games and breathing exercises. The students were engaged, respectful of her and their peers, and loved the sessions! She had students asking if they could attend her next workshop, but there were already lines out the door to get in!"-MH
"She has provided me with specialized yoga instruction. I use a wheelchair for mobility and cannot sprawl out on a mat. She created an individualized series of yoga exercises for me which she printed out and had laminated for me so that I would have it available all the time.

She demonstrates a willingness to share information with anyone who shows interest, even outside of a formal educational setting." -JG
