Hilary Richard E-RYT 200 is a north shore native who considers herself very lucky to live in an area with such a thriving yoga community.
Hilary first came into yoga as a teenager and completed her 200 hour training in 2012 with Claire Este-MacDonald and Gregor Singleton at Empower Yoga.
Through exploration of different teachers, she fell in love with the creativity, diversity, attention to seasonal changes, human emotion, rawness and humor that some of her favorite teachers brought to their classes. It was a refreshment like no other, and drawing inspiration from this, she seeks to bring students into a rawer connection with themselves.
Through building deeper emotional connections through physical practice, Hilary discovered the magical and healing powers of "softening". Making space. Letting go.
Hilary completed Restorative 1 & 2 training in restorative yoga through Jillian Pransky at yogaworks NYC, in addition to continuing education workshops. Most recently, Hilary completed a training in yin yoga through Josh Summers at North End Yoga.
