SAF Special Event: Yoga Under the Umbrella 

Experience a rare opportunity to salute the sun at what Architectural Digest named “One of the five most remarkable houses of the mid-twentieth century.” Yoga practice guided by Lynn Burgess of Yoga From The Heart.

In 1953, Lido Shores developer Philip Hiss hired architect Paul Rudolph to create one of the 20th century's most iconic houses. The dominant feature of the house, the aptly named "umbrella," was originally built of wood and used to shade the house from the intense Florida sun was lost in a storm in the 1960's.

The full umbrella over the pool was restored in 2015 by Hall Architects, receiving the 2016 Florida Trust Outstanding Award, 2016 Florida AIA Honor Award and the 2016 Florida Gulf Coast Chapter AIA Honor Award.

Lynn Burgess's interest in Yoga began in the 1990’s while she was working in corporate America. She quickly developed an exit strategy and created Yoga from the Heart, the first yoga studio in Sarasota and the first to offer training for teachers.  Her decision paid off almost immediately when she was awarded the “Woman Entrepreneurial Excellence Award” by the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce.

Lynn’s accessible, grounded classes integrate the best elements of a traditional yoga practice with anatomical precision and mindfulness teachings. It’s no surprise that Lynn has been voted Sarasota’s Favorite Yoga Instructor and recognized as having the No. 1 Yoga Class in Sarasota again and again. Lynn’s alignment-inspired teaching style is in demand. Her group classes are often wait-listed and her practice is packed with young entrepreneurs and retired CEO’s, athletes from golfers to rowers, and everyone between looking to experience the benefits that yoga has to offer.
