LYN KIRKMAN ERYT 500, ERYT 200, YACEP, REIKI MASTER, AERIALIST, FOUNDER
Lyn’s yoga journey started over 7 years ago while seeking a more spiritual & physical way to heal & connect with her inner self. At the time she would have no idea just how much yoga would transform her entire life & well-being. She immediately fell in love with her practice & how it made her feel mentally, physically, & spiritually. She knew she had to learn more about yoga & it's origins & share this amazing gift with others.
She then decided to study Hatha & Ashtanga yoga & become a certified instructor, so she would be able to confidently share all the powerful & joyful benefits of yoga with others. Lyn enjoys teaching all levels & styles of yoga from the “chair to the air” & has an array of certifications she has obtained over the years, including over 300 hours of Aerial Arts training & experience (CircuSoul, Sarasota, FL & CirqFit, San Fransisco, CA), over 3500 hours of mat yoga training & experience, & over 300 hours of Yin yoga training & experience.
Lyn continued to deepen her yoga journey, practice, & education by completing her 300 hour yoga certification at The Lotus Pond, Tampa, FL; under Iyengar Master Teacher Karin Stephan from Cambridge, Massachusetts. Lyn’s journey also allowed her to deepen her practice as an energy practioner by way of Reiki, a Japanese energy technique that uses a hands-on therapudic approach. Lyn practices this ancient Japanese technique daily on herself & others. Lyn plans to continue to deepen her yoga passion by visit India, as well as travel abroad to other countries, to gain a deeper sense, knowledge, & understanding of yoga & yoga history in Eastern cultures (where yoga originated).
After teaching yoga at studios in and around Pinellas & Pasco counties, Lyn was given the amazing opportunity to open her very own yoga studio in April of 2019, thus Atomic Lotus Yoga was born. Lyn's drive & passion for helping others in her community by way of yoga, aerial arts, movement, & meditation continue to fill her heart daily. Lyn encourages others to expereince yoga for themselves whether you are beginner taking your very first class or an advanced practitioner seeking to deepen their passion for yoga & movement. She is forever grateful for her yoga experiences thus far & for being given the opportunity to share & witness the yoga experience with others each & every day.

Adrienne Martinez RYT 200
Adrienne found yoga just 3 years ago but ever since, she has been practicing nearly everyday. Yoga completely taught her how to regain control of her experience in this life.
After suffering a broken neck in a car accident and running after 3 small kids of her own for a few years, the pain in her back was becoming intolerable. She then found yoga online and committed to giving it 7 days. After 7 days, she noticed so much more mobility and openness that she was eager to keep practicing.
This act led her to self love. Yoga has transformed her life into one that she can enjoy, pain free. Yoga has brought so much positivity into her life that she wanted to become a certified Instructor to share this gift with everyone.
Adrienne also has a background in the biological sciences and loves to integrate her biology knowledge with her knowledge of yoga to really illustrate the importance of the yogic lifestyle and offer encouragement.
Yoga is life.
