Daphne Lyon

Daphne is a 500 hour certified yoga teacher of Jivamukti Yoga, Nosara Yoga and Self-Awakening Yoga Therapeutics, as well as a Lifestyle Meditation Teacher. First introduced at age 5 by her parents, Daphne was mystified by the practice. Yoga is her rock through the ebb and flow of life as the power of practice set with high intention reveals our truth, that divine love within us all. The practice has aided Daphne in settling the mind, connecting to the earth and all it’s beings, becoming more present, mindful, and receptive to those around her, and aligning with the healing power of source. She’s extremely grateful to her family, her teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Don and Amba Stapleton, the many teachers in her community who continue to inspire her, and especially the students who allow her to share her love and passion of yoga.

As a surfer at heart, Daphne’s classes are just like riding a wave: fun, liberating, challenging, and humbling. Her classes stay at the heart of Jivamukti through compassion, laughter in self study, devotion, eclectic music, meditation, and a vigorous breath-centered vinyasa flow, while combined with the sweet, simple, and stress free vibe of Nosara Yoga.
