Hello, I’m the Founding Director, Nancy Sutton Pierce. I opened the House of Conscious Living Yoga in October 2000. My intent was not to teach but to study. I gathered 8 yoga teachers from around the community including Shanna Frankin and Sue Miller Born (two of my earliest teachers).
Creating the studio was a serendipitous event. The space, teachers and timing were perfect. I will always be grateful to those earliest teachers who jumped in to be a part of this dream.
In October of 2014 we celebrated 14 years. You can imagine how long the list of students and teachers is who have graced our humble space. From my dearest family and friends, to my beloved teacher, Mukunda Stiles – from the gentle soulful yogi poet, Jason Mraz to my preious granddaughters ~ our studio has been blessed.
The House of Conscious Living Yoga has evolved (haven’t we all) and is a well respected center for healing in our community as well as around the world. Although Consious Living Yoga was born here in Redding, it is being shared in many other countries through my international teaching and our Yoga To Go™Series.
Our loving pod of teachers (we call ourselves the Heart Centered Coalition) are here to guide, support and empower your journey through the gifts of Conscious Living Yoga. Our studio is a community ~ we welcome the friendly chatter before and after class. Many lasting friendships have been born here ~ this brings us back together week after week, year after year. As my teacher, Mukunda Stiles, taught me – “Relationships are the MOST important part of living”. I whole-heartedly agree.
We look forward to welcoming you home – whether it’s your first or hundred and first visit. Our arms and hearts are always open.
With love and light,
Nancy & the Teaching Faculty
