MEET SYDNEY, Planting Within Founder

Yoga and mindful living have changed my life in many positive ways; ways I hope to share with you! My passion lies in helping others grow into their unlimited potential and create a firm foundation rooted in healthy, sustainable practices. I wish to create positive change by being a channel of love, consciousness and acceptance for all life. My purpose is to guide you to authenticity through sharing ways to cultivate healing, mindfulness, self-care, and spiritual enlightenment.


Texas born and raised, I have lived in many different cities but have found my way back to my hometown in Longview, TX. In 2017, I received a Bachelor of Science in Health Studies at the University of Texas at Tyler (Go Patriots!) and became a Certified Health Education Specialist through NCHEC.


In 2019 I completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training at The Yoga Movement in Dallas, TX and became a registered yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance. I specialize in teaching Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin yoga. I love every second on my mat as a student, and off the mat when I have the privilege of being a teacher. I currently volunteer at Longview Museum of Fine Arts teaching Gentle Flow group classes and offer private yoga lessons in Longview, TX.


Yoga, nutrition and many other healing modalities have been my guiding light for the past 6 years. I have become more capable both physically and mentally and have established a deeper connection with my higher self, the divine, and nature than I ever realized possible. I understand that the quality of my life is my responsibility and that each of us have the power to create our dream reality- one of love, growth and vitality.
