I'm Lindsay, a Colorado native, born and raised, originally from Littleton, Colorado. I've spent most of my time living along the Colorado front range, intermixed with long bouts living nomadically out of a backpack, halfway around the world. In 2016, grief rooted me back to my home state, where I spent the next few years focused on self growth and personal transformation.
In 2018, I created WanderLotus.
This space was created as a place to share my offerings to the greater community. A place where I could merge mental health and the holistic lifestyle into a safe container. My world travels humbled me, and showed me that there was another way to live this life. There is something out there, besides deadlines, people pleasing, and fitting into the societal mold. So I was determined to come home and disrupt the Western mindset. To help bring our people back. Back to our bodies, back to our breath, back to Mother Nature. My studies and my teachings reflect a blend of Eastern Philosophy, Earth Medicine and Shamanic practices.
I bring transformation to my clients by bringing yoga, Ayurveda, lifestyle coaching, travel, nature and community together. I want to help others feel good in their mind, body and soul.
So, I invite you to hold space with me.
Here you are safe to be authentically you and show up just as you are. I will hold a safe space to brings you to the edge of your comfort zone, so you can get out of your own way, and create the life you've been dreaming about.
Together, let us walk through the darkness and into the light.
My light honors your light.

More About My Story
Ever since I was a little girl, I was called to visit Costa Rica. Right before my senior year of college, I had the opportunity to live there and study abroad for a summer in order to finish up my Business Administration minor. We spent a majority of our time exploring the jungle and experiencing the biodiversity there. From white water rafting in the Rio Pacuare to snorkeling off the coast of Drake Bay we encountered endless wildlife.
The summer after college, I again, went down to travel in Costa Rica. I spent a couple weeks near Puerto Viejo working at an animal rescue center, rehabilitating howler monkeys and baby sloths back into the jungle.
Around the World
A few years later, I had the opportunity to take a 6 month trip around the world, out of a backpack. I started in Belize. Here, I lived in a tree house over a dog rescue on Caye Caulker Island. From here I went to New Zealand, and spent a month hitchhiking and camping along the north and south island. Off of the coast of Kaikoura, I swam with a wild pod of dolphins in the ocean, which was a dream come true. I then made way to Australia to catch a show at the Sydney Opera House and managed to come face to face with a koala before leaving the country.
For the next couple of months, I posted up in Southeast Asia, spending time traveling between Thailand and Cambodia. I spent 3 weeks on Koh Tao getting my rescue scuba diving license. Cambodia was a hidden gem. The temples were magnificent and I made sure to catch a sunrise trip to Angkor Wat and Bayan. I ended my Southeast Asia journey, spending time at an elephant refuge in Chang Mai. The roots of my yoga practice formed from experiencing this culture.
The journey continued to Greece, where I spent one month between Athens, Meteora, and Santorini. My gyro addiction began here, and my love for Greek culture only grew. I then made way to the heart of Rome and over towards Ireland. I spent about a month here, spending time in Galway, Dublin, and Belfast.
I made my way home from here with plans to apply to grad school and move to Fort Collins, Colorado.
In 2016, once I returned home, I enrolled in school at CSU to take a few final pre-requisites for Veterinary school. Shortly after starting my classes, life threw me a huge curveball.
At the age of 24, my mother suddenly passed away from a heart attack. I dropped out of school to take the time I needed to process and move through this experience. It took months into years to take the time to grieve and accept this traumatic event.
I started to experience an identity crisis. I couldn't get clear on anything and had no idea what direction my life would take next. This was where my journey moved inward, and I set out to heal and rediscover myself.
Yoga was the only form of "therapy" that I could afford at the time and so I started showing up to class once a week. It was very clear early on how this started to benefit my mind and body. It became apparent that my next direction was going to be sharing this practice with others.
Doing the Work
In 2018 I enrolled in a yoga teacher training program.
in Fort Collins. I was going back to school, it was just going to look a little bit different then I had envisioned. Though I thought I was destined for Veterinary Medicine, the universe had other plans for me.
Anybody who does a yoga teacher training will tell you, its life changing. You start to notice things about who you are.
Shedding old stories.
Learning new ways.
A lot of our life we spend "un"becoming.
We get stuck in the constricts of society, forgetting that we are allowed to take up space here during our time on Earth.
In 2018, I created WanderLotus and started up my own studio space in Windsor, CO. I wanted this to be a safe space for people to show up no matter what they were going through and no matter where they were on their
At the end of 2019, I expanded into a bigger studio space in Windsor and hired on a full team. Three months later, the world shut down. I spent the next year and a half hosting teacher trainings and open house events to keep the
In 2021, this led to a case of entrepreneurial burnout.
I downsized my studio and went back to being a one woman show. My body was asking for me to slow down. In order for me to keep serving the community, I needed to take some time to reset and recenter myself. Different health issues had started manifesting in my body and I needed to create some space for healing.
So in order to do that...
At the end of 2021, I decided to leave my full time job. (Yes, I had a full time job in addition to running to studio- hence the burnout)
I had been curious to experience the "minimalist" or "vanlife" lifestyle for many years. I decided to buy an RV and set out on a new adventure.
I started manifesting 40 acres of land, in a small town in the mountains. Having completed my Certified Gardener in 2021, I was hoping to find some place that was looking for help on their land.
Ask and you shall receive.
In March of 2022 the land I had manifested, found its way to me in completion. A homestead family was looking to bring someone on to their 40 acres of land to share space and cultivate community.
I now live part time, between city life and mountain life, with my cockerpoodle Daisy Mae and my cat Moegley.
I continue to hold weekly offerings to the community around Northern Colorado. As life begins to become more nomadic for me again, I am creating more expansive offerings to keep my community connected. Being in the mountains and connected to nature, allows me the space to envision and create the next steps in my journey.
In addition to paddleboarding, kayaking and hiking, I am using this time to create content and write!
I am beyond grateful for the community I have cultivated with WanderLotus so far, and I am excited to see how this space continues to grow. <3
