RikkiLynn Shields is a yoga teacher, life long runner, and Doctor of Physical Therapy student based in New Jersey. She began practicing yoga as a freshman in college and was hooked after having a blissful, out-of-body experience during her first savasana.
After visiting the Sivananda Ashram on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, RikkiLynn completed her 200-hour teaching certification in 2018. Through her experience as a doctor of physical therapy student, she is able to weave her knowledge of the human body, musculoskeletal system and biomechanics into her teaching.
Determined to help bring mindfulness into action, RikkiLynn offers online yoga and meditation classes to help inspire others to embrace their bodies, develop a deep understanding of their yoga practice and hone in on the tools to support themselves on the path towards inner healing and growth.
By learning to control our minds, RikkiLynn believes we can conquer our bodies. Yoga is about showing up and doing the work. Yoga is about speaking truthfully and staying true to our core values. Yoga is about quieting the mind and looking within to heal our own hearts.
RikkiLynn’s mission is to share her love for movement with you and provide her students with the opportunity to discover their range of abilities. Her biggest hope is that we can all do what we love while always remembering to love what we do.
She has dedicated her life to showing up in the most authentic way, in order to give others permission to do the same.
