was born in the Czech Republic but has lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1998. She is a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant and works at a Rehabilitation Hospital.
She has always been involved in various sports: marathon running, weight lifting, yoga, biking, hiking, skiing, and horseback riding.
Lydie has struggled with thyroid dysfunction since her early 20's and had difficulty controlling her symptoms with traditional medicine. She searched for ways to help herself, which eventually led her to Hormone Yoga therapy developed by Dinah Rodrigues from Brazil. She started practicing daily and was amazed with her positive results. After 10 months of daily exercise, Lydie's PCP discontinued her thyroid medication and she has been off medication since then. Therefore, she decided to share this wonderful method with others.
Lydie obtained her Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) certification in 2017. After self studying for a year, she then traveled to Europe for more training and certification with Dinah Rodrigues (outside of Yoga Alliance certification).
Lydie is now certified in Hormone Yoga for Women and Hormone Yoga for Diabetes. She is among the first few teachers in the USA who are able to teach this technique.
