Meet Lindsay:

Lindsay’s life always has been centered around adventure. A graduate of both Outward Bound and NOLS, Lindsay believes that the path to growth requires you to get out of your comfort zone.

It’s that spirit that led her to cycle across the United States twice, run 14 half marathons and summit mountains in four continents, all while pursuing a Master’s in Public Health and climbing the rungs as a healthcare communications and marketing professional.

It’s also what led her to 200-hour yoga teacher training with Hot Asana Yoga University, where she learned that stillness is more challenging – and impactful – than running, biking, hiking or climbing the corporate ladder.

In 2018, Lindsay founded Taproot Retreats in Durham, N.C., through which she blends yoga, meditation and outdoor excursions to deliver experiences that heal and uplift, rejuvenate and inspire. 

Lindsay is thrilled and grateful to be collaborating with Angela Tara Hsu on a retreat of a lifetime to Peru, a country that has ben instrumental in her awakening, healing and reconnection to her soul.
