Susan Richardson
I teach mindful movement inspired by almost two decades of practicing the teachings of BKS Iyengar. For me, yoga is the attempt to find deep presence in moment-to-moment breath, movement and thought. In my teaching, I encourage students to connect to their understanding of their body and to explore a broad range of yoga postures in a creative way.
May Lively
Yoga is a “PLUS” for May
Perseverance:  May began yoga in 2005, and has been practicing it ever since. She enjoys working with a simple and focused mind and over the years has been amazed by the wisdom revealed by the combined mental and physical practice.
Learning:  May’s principle is to keep learning. The pursuit of knowledge has motivated her to complete Bikram Yoga College of India’s Teacher Training program, as well as diving deep into the knowledge and philosophies of Hatha Yoga. She has also studied anatomy to learn about injury prevention, alignment and proper adjustments. 

Union: May loves the beauty of nature. Yoga enables her to see how we are connected and united with the universe, the earth and other creatures. With love and respect, she believes we will find harmony and peace.
