HI, I’M LINDSAY!
I’m Lindsay Bordwell, the founder of Yoga + Co. I was drawn to Yoga as a way to focus on mind and body health. I hope my practice will inspire others to help, heal, and have a positive outlook on life. Based out of Des Moines, Iowa, I love to teach classes & private workshops, and host events.
I am a 200-Hour Yoga certified instructor, Boopbod Ambassador, and Yoga Alliance member. In addition to my private and small group lessons, I am teaching at the following spaces: Gold's Gym, Anytime Fitness, Aspen Athletic, Define Fitness, Des Moines Ballroom, and Smashpark. Check out my calendar for dates and times.
learning together with heart & passion
Growing up in Iowa I have been blessed being raised in the Mid-West. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2013 with a B.S. in Apparel Merchandising & Design. I lived in New York and Los Angeles to pursue my dream career in the fashion industry. After a few years I realized my dreams changed and I sought for a career that was more fulfilling to me. I moved to Seattle to obtain my Masters in Counseling Psychology. I began to further my yoga practice while there, helping me cope with past traumas, stress, anxiety and being alone in a unfamiliar place.
I moved back to Iowa in 2017 and continued to feel lost with a void that needed to be filled. Yoga was the constant in my life helping me through my most difficult times. I wanted a career that could help others find meaning in life. In the spring of 2018 I decided to follow my heart and take a leap of faith. I quit my job and started my yoga training through Boopbod. I gained the knowledge and skills needed to help others deepen not only their practice, but to inspire them to find happiness inside themselves. My mission is to provide a safe space to come as you are, take what you need and spread the amazingly good energy this world needs.
COME AS YOU ARE
As an instructor I just want you to know it’s ok to not be perfect. I love yoga because it’s a practice, every single time you come to your mat. There is no end goal but a constant practice, no competition and zero judgement.
