Lindel has been involved with the Nantucket Yoga Festival since its inception and is honored to return for year five. His teaching and practice are grounded in the instruction of B. K. S. Iyengar, but Lindel’s approach to yoga often takes a decidedly personal spin. Merging the classic and the contemporary helps him keep his teaching fresh and insightful, balancing an emphasis on anatomical integrity with compassion, joy, enthusiasm and humor.
Since 2009 Lindel has operated his own studio, Hart Yoga in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, where he teaches a wide variety of classes and workshops. He also serves as the yoga instructor at Deerfield Academy, a highly selective independent, coeducational boarding school located in historic Deerfield, Massachusetts. At DA he teaches classes that are open to the entire school community, works with many of the athletic teams, and each term teaches yoga to a group of students as an alternative to participating in sports.
His teaching credits include Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, the Martha’s Vineyard Yoga Festival, the Slow Living Summit, and the Nantucket Yoga Festival, as well as studios throughout the northeast, the mid-Atlantic region and in New York City. Lindel is also a writer/performer whose adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (in which he plays the Creature) received rave reviews at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe last August.
