Instructors



Hello, I’m Tabetha J Holyfield, Holistic Health Coach and also the founder of Yoga Divine.  I started practicing yoga for the physical aspects, strength, and flexibility. I almost immediately found the integration of my mind & body, not so long after; this profound spiritual l journey began.  I have discovered a profound peace, tranquility, and harmony.  It's this synergy of mind and body that I hope you experience when you attend my yoga classes. Health Coaching was the next level to connect all areas of life.  My desire is helping people go to the next level of personal well-being and happiness.

Here is a story for children of all ages who treasure beauty, grace, and wonder.” Dr. Phyllis Trible, Baldwin Professor of Sacred Literature at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. L.S.L.

Once we liberate ourselves from our unconscious negative programmed data, we are free to experience the bliss and the beauty of being. Grateful Witness empowers one in lifting the veil of unconscious limiting choices, in a fun, and sometimes shocking way. “I snuggled up on the couch with this book one evening and before I knew it half the book was gone. A well written account of a true mystic's experiences. Like being a fly on the wall of a very trippy room.” Amazon Review. Linda’s third book, The Evolution Game, is in the process of being pub.
