Lindsey Pluimer

Lindsey was first introduced to yoga while attending UCLA and playing on the women’s basketball team in 2007. Upon graduating she then left to go play professional basketball overseas in Sydney, Australia and Pamplona, Spain. It was in the land down under with world-renowned yogi, Duncan Peak (Power Living Yoga), where she found her passion for yoga. Once landing on American soil during her off-season she then got certified to teach yoga in order to share her passion with others. Furthering her love for yoga, Lindsey has studied with Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, and Hala Khouri. She also completed the “Teaching Yoga to At-Risk Kids Training” led by Hala Khouri. Lindsey strongly believes that yoga is a self study of interconnectedness, allowing us to see the divine connection between breath, body, mind, spirit, but also to the world around us. She believes that yoga is a beautiful art designed to help create space and healing in the body, mind, and heart. Bridging her yoga with social activism, Lindsey founded the nonprofit foundation, With My Own Two Hands Foundation, seeking to combine the yoga and sport communities with social activism, specifically helping to provide sustainable foundations (shelter, education, water and agriculture, and sport facilities) for projects in Africa that benefit orphaned or disadvantaged children in need . Lindsey regularly travels to Africa with her foundation, taking her yoga off the mat and into the world.
