Our Yoga Teachers

Karen Husby-Coupland

Karen croppedKaren is the owner and primary teacher at Harmony Yoga. She is an Iyengar Yoga teacher who is certified at the Intermediate Junior I level.  She has been studying and practicing yoga since 1993, and teaching since 1999. She continues to take classes and workshops locally and out-of-town, to improve her own practice and her teaching skills. Karen spent the month of February, 2006, in Pune, India studying at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI), the “heart and soul of Iyengar Yoga”.

Karen’s teaching style is friendly and supportive. She truly delights in helping beginners and more experienced students alike progress in their practice and understanding of yoga.


Susan Bellinson

Susan began teaching yoga to herself at the age of thirteen, and was delighted when she moved to Ann Arbor in the 1990s and found that she could begin taking regular Iyengar yoga classes. She’s never looked back. Her teaching career began in 2000, and in 2007 she earned her Introductory II certification. She has been fortunate enough to study with the Iyengar family both in India as well as in the U.S. Susan loves to share her knowledge of yoga with others.


Pam Lindberg

Pam has studied yoga since the late 1980′s and began teaching in 2005. The thing she likes best about teaching yoga is helping students increase their sense of body awareness, strength and become more flexible (in both body and mind). The added sense of peacefulness that comes with the practice of yoga is also quite satisfying. Pam is certified at the Introductory II level.

 


Marly Speiser-Schneider

Marly is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher, dancer, farmer, organizer, and explorer of many things. She started studying Iyengar Yoga at a young age in Ann Arbor, then continued her training and certification on the East coast. Her curiosity leads her many places but the practice of Iyengar Yoga has become a major grounding and unifying force in her life. She sees this practice as a wholistic approach to learning to live well in ones self and in the world. She is ever-challenged and ever-grateful for the journey she has embarked on by bringing this work into her life. She looks forward to re-entering into the Ann Arbor Iyengar community.
