Seeking relief from stress induced by career change, Richard stumbled upon yoga in 2005. In 2009 he began an extensive exploration of the positive philosophy and generalized alignment principles of Anusara Yoga. In April 2013 he completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training with former Certified Anusara Teacher Sara Davidson Flanders (ERYT- 500). He also has studied extensively with former Certified Anusara Teacher Marc St. Pierre (ERYT-500) and has participated in asana webinars offered by Christina Sell, author of My Body is a Temple (2011), and Yoga from the Inside Out (2003). He has been teaching yoga since 2013. A period of inquiry induced by shoulder injury (and recovery) has sharpened his focus on alignment.

The thrill of discovery keeps driving Richard to his mat, and the delight of sharing, to teach yoga. Since 2005, his day job has been to teach sociology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and other area institutions. http://wholehearted-yoga.com

Paula has studied yoga since the early 1990's and became serious about it and decided to become a yoga teacher in 2004 earning her 200 hour certification and registration with Yoga Alliance. After several injuries, she found that yoga was the one thing she could still practice that actually helped her gain strength and stability and kept her centered. She studied Ashtanga Yoga (vinyasa - flowing yoga) with Mary Hart at Iron Crow Yoga in Hamilton, MA. She has a strong infuence in Anusara Yoga, in which the primary focus is on proper body alignment. Paula is also certified in Story Time Yoga which is a unique children's yoga class that incorporates simple stories with specific morals that the children reenact through yoga poses. It's a great deal of fun for them and they're learning all the benefits of yoga at the same time.
