Paxos island Greece



Barbara Lyndley’s involvement with yoga began many years ago and evolved from a feeling that she was not a human being, more of a human ‘doing’. Life was hectic and she felt rushed, pressured and tired of always having more to do. She wanted time to ‘simply be’ herself, so she took up yoga as a hobby.

This led her to an amazing holiday experience in Dahab, in the Sinai desert, where she experienced one-to-one tuition in Kundalini yoga. She felt so inspired that on her return home she looked for a class to join so that she could practise what she had learned. On finding there were no classes in her area, she decided to embark upon teacher training so that she could start them herself.

Barbara therefore enrolled with the International School of Kundalini Yoga in the UK and is a qualified member of the Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association in the UK and the International equivalent organisation in the USA (IKYTA).

She set up SimplyB Yoga in 2006 and began to teach classes and workshops in her native Staffordshire and the neighbouring counties, with the aim of putting Kundalini Yoga firmly on the map in the UK. She subsequently went on to develop a successful yoga holiday course on Paxos in association with Paxos Life Activities.  

A businesswoman as much as a yoga teacher, Barbara was also a member of Women in Rural Enterprise (WiRE), a national organisation offering support to rural businesses, and was instrumental in setting up a local Network Group within WiRE.

Having retired from her former (stressful) career in the legal workplace several years ago, Barbara recently took the final steps towards realising her dream of living in Greece and left the UK to live on Lesbos, in the north Aegean sea. There, the island’s warmth and the courteous, simple dignity of its people, make it a wonderful place in which to continue to pursue her passion for yoga.
