Lynn proved to be a godsend of a Senior Account Manager for Audience Partners, particularly during but certainly not limited to the rapid fire 2014 election season.

Thanks Unlimited Yoga, I got into yoga and meditation and was myself able to connect other people to yoga through her website and articles. Unlimited Yoga was definitely a great project and idea that touched lots of people positively, including me.
— Jose (subscriber)
I’m sorry to see this end! This helped me so much when I was new to Denver and looking for yoga. I’ve made a lot of friends at these events and really appreciate what you have put together.

Thank you again for all these wonderful resources it has inspired me to plan my week get out and know that I will meet new friends in the process.

I am currently in a time of job transition, so UY has been an invaluable resource to me to continue my practice at affordable rates. It has introduced me to several new yoga studios, including RiNo Yoga Social, which has been a great outlet for me.
— Leah (subscriber)
Unlimited Yoga has been a great way for us to spread the word about Yoga for the People and help us find new students for our donation-based yoga classes, which are fundraisers for our mission. Lynn’s site is also a great conduit to let people see the work we do, which is to bring yoga to the people.
— Craig Pollitt, Board Member with Yoga for the People (yoga programming)
I started teaching yoga in March of 2017 and I am new to Denver. With the help of Unlimited Yoga my donation based classes at RiNo Yoga Social are consistently growing. There are some classes where 3 or 4 people are referred by Unlimited Yoga alone. Thanks Lynn for helping new teachers and making yoga more accessible to all!
— Tiffany Adams, Kindred Yogis (yoga programming)
Since moving to Denver three years ago, your service and correspondence has greatly impacted my life and yoga practice. I have told more people about it than I can count. I have extremely enjoyed practicing yoga on the rooftops of buildings, parks, the practice court of the Denver nuggets, near pools, in retail shops and various studios around Denver. It has been fun to take classes from different teachers with diverse styles.
— Kate (subscriber)
UY has been very useful and inspiring to me. It’s had an unmeasurable positive impact on my life. I look forward to hearing about your future endeavors.
— Jessica (subscriber)
I got the website from a counseling intern, and she was exceptionally enthusiastic about the opportunities you offer to low income people like me. I am on disability and deal with frequent pain. Due to a looonnggg bout of depression, I had not yet gone to a yoga class thru your referrals. I am looking forward to going, as opposed to just following my yoga book. You give me something to reach for.
— Deb (subscriber)
I teach donation yoga on Tuesdays at Twisted Sister Yoga in Park Hill and I have seen a handful of people that found us through you. THANK YOU! I love seeing fresh faces in my classes. Especially beginner yogis :)
— Addison Gumbert, Karma Kosha (yoga programming)
As teacher who is new to Denver via Chicago, working with Lynn at Unlimited Yoga has helped continuously drive new students to my classes. Just this week, 5 out of 11 new students heard about my Monday night Gentle Vinyasa/Restorative class at RiNo Yoga Social through the weekly Unlimited Yoga email. Not only has this given me the opportunity to meet new students, but it has also resulted in a significant increase in donations.
