Ann Richardson

Ann believes yoga should be fun. Her classes are playful and challenging and she teaches with the intention to guide others to be present in their experiences on and off the mat. Always teaching with an emphasis on alignment, Ann encourages her students to adapt the practice to their own unique needs. Ann believes that full body wellness is generated from the Mind-Body connection. That connection is founded in every one of Ann's class whether students walk, hobble or roll into her classes.

Rita Jones

Teacher at heart, Rita was first introduced to yoga through headstands. For the love of yoga and love of teaching, she started the perfect combined journey of the two. Yoga started as something fun and different for Rita to do. It wasn’t until almost a year later that it really started affecting her life mentally. Yoga is now about the strength physically, patience and calming of the mind. Following her passion and enjoyment of learning, Rita and her husband went to Bali, in September 2016, to get ACROVINYASA certified. Rita plans to build an acorvinyasa community right here in the 757 area. Yoga is about the journey, not the destination.

Favorite Asana:
Pigeon. I love how relaxing pigeon makes me feel. It’s a great hip opener and makes you surrender as you fold forward. There is something about all the different variations you can take in pigeon that inspires me and makes it my favorite.
