Libby Sullivan believes yoga was within her long before she discovered asana. It is this inner knowing that led her to discover teachers and wellness modalities to enlighten the inward journey. Encouraging others to tap into their own intuition is Libby’s passion. A long-time yogi, Libby received her 200-hour training in 2016 at Devanadi School of Yoga. 


An energetic collaborator, Libby works with individuals, organizations, and education leaders using intuitive wellness tools to empower others with their own self-discovery journeys. With her background in graphic design and book arts, Libby brings a unique creative and human centered approach to her work.

Within the Mysore-style practice space relationship is paramount to fostering a balanced [and by extension a sustainable] approach toward the physical and mental aspects of a “practice." As an instructor, I strive to establish an environment of support, trust, and open communication. I facilitate the individual’s path of growth which these rich traditions hold and impart to all who seek their limitless knowledge. It is a journey aided by the wisdom imparted by those who practice(d).
