Mary Susan Stults
Southern Utah native Mary Susan Stults has been practicing Yoga for over 20 years since she was a young teen, surfing for 18 years, and paddling for over 7 years now. Mary Susan, an avid nature lover, grew up exploring the many hiking trails, rivers, rocks, mountains, canyons, and the endless outdoor beauty of Utah and Colorado with her friends and family. Despite growing up landlocked Mary grew up a deep love and appreciation for the ocean and water and that passion has only grown with each passing year.
After moving to Boulder, Colorado to attend the University of Colorado-Boulder, she has made Colorado her home for over 16 years. You can often find this nature lover hiking or biking on a trail, paddling, surfing, practicing yoga on the water, camping in the mountains or desert, or exploring her yoga practice outdoors.

Many describe her energy as contagious, finding her nurturing and patient style of teaching to be welcoming and supportive. She infuses her Yoga, SUP, and SUP Yoga classes, workshops, and retreats with her grounded yet light-hearted nature. For Mary, being a student of the practice of yoga is as important as being a teacher. When she is not working and teaching herself you can often find her in a teacher training or yoga intensive somewhere around the world with her forever teacher, Maty Ezraty with whom she has completed over 600+ hours of formal training. She hopes to help others delve into what it means to live well physically, mentally, and spiritually, by exploring and developing their own yoga practice, and translating the joy, strength, confidence, mindfulness, balance, and grace that we find on the mat, into our lives off the mat!
