  • Lindsey Briggs

    Lindsey Briggs grew up in Minnesota and began falling in love with movement as a 3 year old. She trained at a nationally recognized, competitive dance studio until she was 18. From there, her passion for dance led her to New York City where she began her professional dance career. She also started expanding her knowledge of movement by completing her first mat Pilates certification program. In 2008, Lindsey moved to Los Angeles to continue her dance training at Santa Monica College. While she was going to school for dance, she found a new interest in the thriving yoga community in L.A. To balance her vigorous dance training and performance schedule, she started regularly integrating yoga into her weekly movement regime. Lindsey noticed a shift not only in her dancing, but in her mentality as well.
