Ann Richards

Certified & Registered Yoga Teacher

I was lucky enough to practice for the first time with Tammy Lyons at Inner Bliss when it opened its doors in Lakewood Ohio. It was a magical experience, and I credit Tammy Lyons with allowing me to discover, after so many years of practice, the ability to become a teacher.  I was certified in 200 hrs. with Mitchel Bleier, and in 2012 with 100 more hours with Kiersten Mooney from Bala Vinyasa in Naples, Florida.

I hope to make each class an experience for the student providing an opportunity to challenge mental and physical boundaries, and allow them to find an emotional release.  I love to provide a killer playlist that expresses my dynamic knowledge of music combined with a playful, challenging, and fun asana sequence. Laughing out loud is encouraged!

In addition to yoga I am a life coach, personal trainer, and teach spin classes at Ride and Workout. I love to see others live to their fullest potential and realize their strengths on and off the mat.

I am also an actress in the SAG union and work in commercials, videos, and film… and last but not least… actually first.. I am a mother!
