You matter & You belong

Self-care is a radical act of love and self-compassion. Take the time to take care of yourself, so we can all take care of each other. Because we belong to each other. We need you and we need each other.

About Lynn Teo, DACM, MSc (she/they)

Lynn’s mission is to support individuals and communities reduce stress and anxiety, increase resilience, and joy, and cultivate a deeper feeling of balance, wholeness, and connection to ourselves, and each other. 

Lynn has been teaching yoga, embodied awareness, and meditation for over 25 years. She focuses on teaching embodied practices for radical rest, resilience, and trauma / burnout recovery particularly for helpers, healers, artists, and activists.

Lynn meditates & teaches in the Buddhist tradition of Insight meditation (Vipassana) and is a student of Jonathan Foust, Leslie Booker and Bhikkhu Analayo. She is a graduate of Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield’s Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program. A graduate of the Esther Myers yoga teacher-training program (750 hours), she teaches in the Scaravelli tradition which emphasizes connecting movement to the breath, a sense of grounding to the earth and freedom of the spine. In her classes, she creates a safe container of discovery, facilitating her students to find their own way into the practice. She encourages experimentation, curiosity and playfulness as a means to cultivate embodied wisdom, self-compassion, resilience and joy innate within all of us.

Having worked in complementary medicine for almost 20 years, Lynn combines acupuncture, shiatsu, and Somatic Experiencing ® at her clinic in Portland, ME. She specializes in helping patients suffering anxiety, stress, overwhelm, burnout and trauma as well as chronic pain and chronic conditions.
