Yoga Corner

Welcome to the Yoga Corner!

Ms. Lindsay – Yoga Teacher
Hi! I’m Lindsay and I’m the co-owner of Twisted Tree Yoga, along with my sister, Marissa Anderson. I have an extensive background in dance, which is what led me to yoga. I began taking yoga classes regularly during my time studying dance at Columbia College Chicago, and dove deeper into yoga during my recovery from a serious back injury.

I am thrilled to be here sharing my love for yoga with our friends at Plato Academy, both at the school and at Twisted Tree Yoga. I am extremely passionate about sharing the Twisted Tree space with the Des Plaines community. To me, it is more than a yoga studio – it’s a place we can offer to our hometown, an opportunity for families to find time to share together, and a way to facilitate community and shared experience with other members of the area.

I have taught yoga at Plato as an after school activity since 2015 and am excited for this program to be incorporated into Plato’s physical education curriculum. I believe that yoga is more than just cool poses and work to deliver a multilayered experience for our young yogis. By incorporating meditation, partner poses, group work, creative expression, stories and games along with traditional yoga poses, our yogis will be sure to explore yogic practices in a deep, meaningful manner.

I strive to keep open lines of communication and look forward to growing along with our students. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions, or if you are are looking for ways to incorporate more yoga at home.
