About the Trainers

Lynn Levy founded LynnLevity as a way to help people change and transform into lighter, happier people – and in turn, make the world a more joyful place.

After an intense, serious spiritual journey, Lynn decided she'd had enough seriousness and needed to bring more joy, play, laughter and connection into her life. As a result of this quest and realizing that she probably wasn’t the only too-serious adult around, LynnLevity Playshops were born. They are a unique blend of exercises for adults including clowning exercises, energy balancing, games, sensual food meditation and more.

Lynn’s passion for (theatrical) clowning began in 2010 when she met and began clowning with her mentor, Barbara Ann Michaels, aka “The Jester of the Peace.” Simply putting on a clown nose and being spontaneous was both delightful and a great education.

Lynn has also taken Clowning/Improv classes with the New York Clown Theater Festival and performers from the Big Apple Circus Clown Care Program as well as the Blue Man Group.
