RICHARD JOHNSON

Richard is a classically trained philosopher and musician, but also a classic non-conformist.  He has been teaching Tai Chi and Yoga for more than 15 years and is passionate about upending misconceptions and preconceived notions.  A lifetime of learning spiritual-truths continues to be enriched through his fascination with political science, theoretical physics, artificial intelligence, astrology, and theology.  Despite a penchant for provacative statements, the driving force behind his offerings (by way of the great and magnificent grace of his Teachers) is always a blend of radical humor, fierce compassion, and real love.

ABBY ANDERSON

Synergence Barre Teacher Training - ACE Certified

Abby is a barre certified, passionate yogi who has found her own healing and growth on the four corners of her mat.

Abby has found yoga a pivotal component in managing stress, dealing with pain, and discovering emotional agility.

While she loves exercise and getting a sweat on, Abby is determined to make movement not about looking a certain way, but feeling good inside your body.

If you like good music, full body workouts, and some guidance on challenging your inner critic she’s the gal for you!
