Lindsay Nova Calvert

Lindsay Nova's life mission is to help others find their wings and FLY! As a full-time traveling aerial yoga teacher, she loves spreading the joy of yoga and aerial all over the world through her specially curated teacher training immersion programs that cultivate positive transformation.

Yoga found Lindsay at a young age as a teenager while she was studying at a contemporary dance intensive. She completed her teacher training at the age of 22 and holds a BFA in Dance. Her teaching over the last decade has taken her on various residencies around the world and within the United States.

Now Lindsay is currently based in Southeast Asia and is a traveling yogini, author, performance artist, and leading international yoga teacher trainer. Her lifelong practice of yoga and meditation, combined with her background as a dancer, aerialist, and academic, enables her to share her authentic life experiences from the heart to inspire growth and change in her students.

After a shoulder injury from performing aerial in 2016, she created her aerial yoga program to heal herself and now teaches her method worldwide. She has founded 2 yoga training programs, Rising Wings Aerial Yoga and the Samanova School of Yoga, with courses taught on 4 continents. Her book, The Happiness Playbook, is available on Amazon and she has written for dozens of publications and happy clients throughout the internet for over 5 years.

Her teaching style is a fusion of contemporary movement with traditional wisdom, which always contains a spark of creativity (shakti!) with deep intention. She honors the body as a sacred vessel to explore this world with and uses her spiritual practice to help others peel away the layers of their being to understand their own personal power and role in life, or dharma. She bows deeply to all of her teachers for the wisdom and inspiration they have passed on to her, which she continues to ignite in others.

Outside of yoga, Lindsay loves to stay active physically and mentally through surfing, hiking, exploring the world, making videos, learning about astrology, reading Eastern philosophy, and designing her own clothing and jewelry line in Sri Lanka.
